Live Virtual Native American Conference:

Press Release from Urban Poling Inc.

Join us March 3 from 12 to 4 pm EST.


Learn how Urban Poling aka Nordic walking is a fun, low impact and highly effective activity for both Fall Prevention and Diabetes Programs.  Mandy Shintani, occupational therapist and gerontologist, recently presented at  the American Indians Elders Conference with NICOA on this evidence-based activity with proven researched benefits for improving balance, walking ability, confidence and greater adherence to exercise versus regular walking to better manage blood glucose levels.  As walking continues to be an approved activity that you can enjoy safely, Urban Poling is a great way to keep your community active and fit! This fun and easy to learn, full body workout is backed by 360 studies and has been adopted by Indigenous communities across Canada since 2006. Our beautiful Spirit poles were designed by Indigenous artist, Jordan Stranger. Our NA Instructor course includes how to launch this program for both walking and innovative seated and standing exercises for Fall Prevention Programs that can be done within one’s home or as a group activity program.
