Classes and Instructors

To get the best value from your Nordic Walking experience, it is important to use the correct technique.

The best way to learn the correct technique is from a Nordic Walking Australia instructor certified by the International Nordic Walking Federation.

The International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA) is the Global Governing Body for Nordic Walking worldwide. INWA sets the standards for how Nordic Walking is taught and practiced, and develops the education material used for Nordic Walking Instructor training around the World.

All Nordic Walking Australia Instructors are INWA certified, guaranteeing the highest level of quality of instruction and knowledge. Learning from a Nordic Walking Australia instructor ensures that you get the most out of your Nordic Walking experience.

Nordic Walking Instructors run group lessons as well as individual tuition.  To book a four lesson course or contact an instructor for individual tuition, please find the instructor that best suits you from the drop down lists on the right of this page.

Courses, “poles and lessons” packages and other accessories can be purchased from your local instructor or in our web shop.

If you do not see any instructors in your area contact Nordic Walking Australia and we may be able to refer you to an instructor who can conduct classes outside their usual area.

Of course if you would like to become an instructor.
