YWCA Encore is an exercise programme for women who have had breast cancer.
Attending for two hours weekly, for eight weeks, participants participate in specifically designed hydrotherapy and land-based exercises with healthy lifestyle information, relaxation and peer support.
Encore aims to:
- improve mobility and flexibility in your arms and shoulders
- relieve any discomfort you may be experiencing as a result of surgery
- reduce the potential risk of lymphoedema and manage the symptoms of existing lymphoedema
- laugh, relax and have fun
Participants are eligible to attend from eight weeks post surgery. YWCA Encore benefits participants regardless of whether they attend eight weeks or 30 years post surgery.
