Leisure time is considered as one of the most important aspects of lifestyle in contemporary societies. The modes of spending leisure time are diverse and multiple in everyday culture. In this regard many people enjoy walking as a leisure activity in public spaces. Walking affords an experience of embodiment to the extent that is grounded in an inherently sociable engagement between self and environment. In fact, the sociability of leisure walking could be seen in convergence and divergence of individual and social bodies in their movement in situ. In this study we have sought to understand the cultural relations and social mechanism of leisure walking, embodiment and sociability.The field of research was neighborhood of Shahrake-e-gharb of the city of Tehran. The research method was based on walking ethnography that has been done by examining rhythms, gestures and interactions of walkers in public spaces. The results show that leisure walking in this field leads to arrhythmia; as a result, we observe the disembodiment of walking and disruption of pleasures in this mode of leisure activity.
