What we're about

“Walking is man’s best medicine” ~ Hippocrates, Father of Medicine

We are a bunch of happy walkers who love walking.

Secrets of Natural Walking (SONW) is a uniquely effective and holistic approach to health and well-being which naturally benefits the body, mind and heart. It is for all ages, child to seniors, whatever your current health condition.

When we know how to take proper steps, we allow our body’s natural and beneficial functions to be activated, benefitting us mentally, emotionally, spiritually as well as physically. Through SONW, we learn how to walk naturally using all the muscles in the body which activates the meridian and reflexology zones, connects us to the earth and opens the spiritual heart with every step.

SONW can help you optimize your walking. Our bodies were specially designed with countless healing capabilities, yet due to the improper way we walk and use our bodies, and sometimes bad posture, these natural healing functions are either inactive or not fully maximized.

Walking is so simple and something we all do many times a day, yet few of us walk properly. Over time, we pick up bad habits which make the way we walk not only less efficient, but possibly detrimental to our physical health and emotional well-being. By learning the Secrets of Natural Walking, each step in our daily life becomes a beautiful opportunity to improve the condition of our whole being,


- Significantly reduced bone, joint and nerve pain

- Improved posture and related conditions like hunched back and scoliosis

- Improved digestion, metabolism and weight loss

- Body more toned and proportional in size

- Improved energy levels and clarity of mind

- Improved the quality of sleep and the ability of our body to heal itself naturally

- Calmer mind, elevated mood and improved sleep quality
