Nordic Academy trains blind participant

Last weekend I ran a Nordic Walking Leader Course in Canberra - Australia's capital city.
This itself is nothing out of the ordinary, however, amongst the participants was a blind lady.

Usually I talk about technique and SHOW what people need to do - not this time. I found it tricky at times to spell out what normally everyone can see. I tried my best to put in words how to Nordic Walk correctly but moreso did Jay. She did a fantastic job of aquiring the technique and using the poles in the right way. And what's even more important - she loved it!

I asked Jay to comment on her experience - come back for more.
