Encore – South Australia and Victoria

Things can become a little trickier after surgery – including exercise.  

YWCA Encore is an exercise program designed specifically for women who have experienced mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction surgery. After surgery, many women experience numbness, pins and needles, loss of mobility, and discomfort in their upper bodies – Encore can help relieve these problems through specially tailored post breast cancer surgery exercises. 

Based around land and pool exercises, it is safe, fun and therapeutic. Encore can help you strengthen and tone your arms, shoulders and chest, regain mobility, and improve your general fitness. 

Find your local program here or contact South Australia and Victoria Encore Coordinator, Helen Bates, at helen.bates@ywca.org.au for more information.

Encore also runs in Western Australia, Queensland, Northern Territory and New South Wales.
