Dynamic, passionate speaker inspires women to explore new paths walking together to bring more joy, confidence and connection into their lives.

As founder & CEO of WomenWalking, Inc., Joy Regan shares with women that they have the power to connect with their natural joy by taking a walk together. “Walking side by side with a walking partner links our happiness together,” says Joy, who realized her own lack of community connection after moving to a new town as a single parent with two teenagers. It was there the vision of WomenWalking began to emerge. 

Today Joy facilitates women worldwide in walking together for the pleasurable experience of joyful moments in the outdoors. You’ll learn about the local and global impact of connecting for walks with other women in your community and beyond, and you’ll think about the importance of building genuine partnership and creating balance within your world of life and work. 

In her passionate, energetic talk, Joy reveals how the simple act of walking together with other women can lead to extraordinary moments with these daily benefits:

  • Being in movement outdoors brings you joy 
  • Connecting with nature adds vitality to your day
  • Discovering clarity and balance by feeling good
  • Embracing the magic outside your comfort zone
  • Living with intention of your feminine self
  • Trusting that fresh perspective creates limitless possibilities
  • Immersing in a circle of women adds collective wisdom and balance

“What began as a vision is now my life’s purpose: women walking and talking together, setting the world on fire,” says Joy, who adds, “Women walking together creates positive change – for me, for you, for community, and for the planet. Please join me for a walk.”

The audience leaves with a shift in perspective and an understanding that sparking joy in their own life is attainable every day. They’ll know how walking with women strengthens their connection with themselves, each other and their community, and why this simple activity inspires so much happiness and joy. 

Fast Facts 

  • Joy did many things the “hard” way: dropping out of high school one month before graduation, walking away from a bad marriage with no money, spending years in credit card debt, but learning that it all prepared her for being a single mom – the most wonderful, challenging, rewarding, learning and life-changing experience ever. 
  • As a mediator, Joy understands the positive power of the mediation process – two people who don’t agree talk and listen and come to an understanding of a different perspective. 
  • How do we “keep faith” when society’s messages tell us we’re wrong? WomenWalking is Joy’s manifestation for believing in herself, trusting what she feels, and following the path that makes her feel good. Oh, yes, and for connecting her introverted self with her community. 

What people are saying…

“I was so inspired when I heard Joy speak that I immediately became a member of WomenWalking and starting doing “netwalking” instead of coffee dates. Joy is a great speaker, with just the right amount of energy; grounded, lively and engaging.”

The Art of Walking: Connecting with Your Joy

Walking outside is a simple exercise that almost anyone can do to connect with the joy inside themselves.

In her energetic, heartfelt presentation, Joy Regan brings to life how walking with women provides support and connection to ourselves and others. You’ll learn that walking together helps reframe life’s challenges and stresses and nurtures confidence and healthy habits. Joy describes how easy it is to reach out to many different women in her WomenWalking community to walk one to one, or start a group and test out new places to walk/hike together, and why this simple activity that women connect with intuitively bring happiness and joy to your life.

Meet Joy Regan…

(In her own words)

I don’t think I realized how disconnected I was from community until my kids and I moved to a small town in Connecticut where we knew no one.

It was there, with my children in high school and me, a single working parent, that it truly sunk in how few connections I actually had; with little sense of community, no nearby family and a few friends sprinkled behind.

What I have come to understand through my appreciation of women, my love of walking and nature, and my work and life experiences, is that what began as a vision, is now my life’s purpose: women walking and talking together around the earth.

When I started WomenWalking, I didn’t have a clue about any of it, but life shows up in unexpected ways. With all that I am, I know that the very simple act of women walking together creates positive change; for myself, for you, for my community and for the world.

Happiness, as a wise person once said, is an inside job. When I feel good and confident and happy, I bring it with me everywhere I go; sharing my happiness with others, with you and everyone I meet. Walking with women in the outdoors, brings community and happiness which we can offer to each other. Please join me for a walk.
