Often known as a physical activity geared towards health promotion, walking is also a practice with other meanings. The idea in approaching them in this article arose from a master´s research process in progress. This paper is a product of its literature review. Physical Education, in general, has emphasized technical and biological dimensions of physical activities, disregarding the subjective perspective of human movement. The authors that study this other aspect present walking related to freedom, contemplation, reflection and self-examination, which are not subjugated by current logic of performance. The study geared towards walking as a sensible experience can add to critical views around body exercising.
