CASUAL CLASS – Nordic Pole

Casual Class Attendance:


  • We are unable to offer casual attendances on an ongoing basis for term classes.
  • You will only be entitled to 1 casual class to see if the class is suitable for you.
  • If you’d like to continue for the remainder of the term, please advise Arthritis WA and we’ll be able to arrange a pro-rata amount to be paid for the remainder of the term.

Class Details:

In this land-based program, walking poles will be used for head-to-toe workouts when seated and standing.  The walking poles will provide the participants a unique way of improving their range of motion, core strength, balance and mobility. A great class for all abilities looking to try an alternative way to manage their arthritis!

The class will be led by Carol Benson-Hitch, who is a certified Nordic Pole instructor.

*Please wear loose comfortable clothing and flat soled shoes, and bring a water bottle.
