Exercise Sessions

Exercise sessions help you get back to breathing better. Sessions are held two days per week in two-hour sessions. Exercises include:

  • Low-level aerobic activities
  • Proper breathing techniques
  • Stretching
  • Strengthening

Exercise is proven to increase health and wellness, and by learning proper breathing techniques, you’ll be able to do more activity with less shortness of breath. All exercises are monitored by our team for your safety and progress, and we make sure you’re comfortable every step of the way.
