This is for those with breathing difficulties or those who are supporting someone with a breathing condition. Come and relax and enjoy each other’s company, share knowledge and learning something new.

  • It is a 50 minute series of guided exercises specifically designed to help those with breathing difficulties.
  • A trained, experienced and friendly instructor leads a series of mainly upper body exercises designed to free-up muscles and improve circulation. A focus is on ‘thoracic mobility’ which  involves the muscles surrounding your lungs, abdomen, back, shoulders and neck.
  • These exercises can be seated or standing using a chair for support.
  • Balance exercises are included to help reduce your risk of falling.
  • Diaphragmatic breathing, also called Belly Breathing is taught to help learn the art of correct breathing.
  • Coughing is encouraged.
  • Reducing tension or stress can help better breathing, so the relaxation component is aimed at gradually reducing stress and anxiety in all muscles of the body.

2nd and 4th Monday of the Month. $5 per class or $2 for members of the Nelson Asthma Society.
