Better Breathers Classes

Better Breathers Exercise Classes 

Our Better Breather Classes are starting back in May 2022! 

The Better Breather exercise classes and social support groups provide an opportunity to meet other people with similar conditions.

Keeping active can be daunting and even frightening for those with breathing challenges. The Better Breather class helps you learn and practice beneficial exercises, so you gradually become more active. You will gain confidence to practice exercises at home. You will get to talk with others with similar challenges and get information from trained professionals.
