‘YWCA Encore is a health and wellbeing program for women after breast cancer surgery to improve their mobility and connect them with others going through recovery,’ says co-ordinator Barb Pinter. ‘Floor and pool exercises are taught by trained facilitators and guest speakers come for six of the eight weeks.’
The first Byron program is nearly at an end – it runs for only a few more Wednesdays from 9.30am to 11.30am at the hydro pool, Cape Byron Retirement Village Estate on Cooper St, Byron Bay.
YWCA Encore is starting in Ballina on February 7 and returns to Byron at this time next year.
