The Encore Program is a specialized program for women recovering from breast cancer and/or women who have had breast cancer at any time in their lives.
Encore was developed in Australia with program standards monitored through the YMCA-Canada. The Tri-County Women’s Centre, partnered with the YWCA in Halifax, and the YMCA in Yarmouth to deliver the program in this part of the province.
Using specific floor and pool exercises, the program is designed to help women rebuild flexibility and strength. The floor and pool exercise sessions are thirty minutes each followed by an hour of relaxation, information sharing, discussion and informal conversation with light refreshments.
The program is delivered 3 times a year at the YMCA in Yarmouth.
There is no cost to participants. Pre-registration is necessary.
