  • I use Walkactive techniques when out walking

    by on

    I now think of and try to practice the Walkactive principles when walking. I think my posture is better I take longer steps, and feel more comfortable walking.

    My main criticism is that I am unclear about the second "principle" - what is called the "J curve" in the book and something different in the video available on the web, and the descriptions of what we should do are different too.

    I assume it relates to "standing tall" while using the muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back to help with this.

    I think this is the worst part of the book. I would appreciate more information sent to me directly. PLEaSE!

    I assume the "open ankle" means you keep the front of your back foot on the ground whilst moving on to the next pace, so that that ankle is extended because it is being stretched. Clarification here would help too.

    We have shared this book and talked about it to several people.
