If you love exercising outdoors then try our Nordic Walking classes. They are fun, sociable and work on both your posture and cardiovascular health. Nordic Walking burns 46% more calories than walking without poles and yet it doesn’t feel like hard work. No matter what your level of fitness, Nordic walking can be of benefit to you.

Everything that we teach is available as a group class or on a one to one basis.  Our team will guide you to the best class for you and keep you progressing towards your goals.

We have a relaxing reception area with log burner and the tea and coffee are always on! Many people stay after class for a chat and everyone is always welcome.

Barefoot Studio is an Education Centre for Peak Pilates and British Nordic Walking. Master Instructor, Karen Ingram, hosts regular Instructor Training courses in both Pilates and Nordic Walking.

We are located just a couple of miles from Cowbridge and Llantwit Major and within easy reach of Bridgend, Barry, and Cardiff.
