The WALX Helvellyn Ullswater Team are launching bespoke 1:2:1 Outdoor Skills Sessions at super duper discounted rates during Lockdown, tempting folk to clearing their minds, try new skills & venture that step further.
We pride ourselves on teaching the art of becoming absolved in your surroundings, then how we were built to move and also keep a calm mind in order to think clearly. By understanding what's around us, underneath us, & by knowing we are heading in the right direction, also moving efficiently and with confidence, fear can be eliminated... A key phase used by our guides is 'fear creates falls' , now, could this be just a physical fear, or perhaps a mental fear too? All the outdoor skills that we deliver, give folk the opportunity to build on, during periods of lockdown. Could this bring you out of the 'other side' as a different person, mentally and physically?
If you think our thought process could help you or any of your team members, here's what we could offer you...
Dawn WALX, Night WALX, Daytime WALX - 20% off usual guiding rate as Lockdown offer
1/2 or full day Bespoke Adventure WALX with our experienced Mountain Leaders, all of whom are fountains of knowledge about our much loved Lake District. Learn to feel, hear and sense your surroundings, or understanding what is under your feet in the hours of darkness, or perhaps to see the sunrise from the fells. Keeping in touch with our surroundings really is the magic for our mental wellness during these unusually stressful times.
