Breathe Easy Active
Every Wednesday, from 11.45-1.45
We hold our BEActive (Breathe Easy Active) sessions at Eastbourne Sports Complex. Bourne Avenue,Off Hundens Lane, Darlington, DL1 1LJ . These are run by Vic from Vixi Wellbeing Support, who meets British Lung Foundation training requirements (click here to view Victoria's certificate of achievement).
We take part in various types of exercise specifically tailored to meet our Respiratory/Pulmonary needs. In addition we also do some Yoga Nidra, Tai Chi, Dance relaxation and mindfulness.
The sessions are for Breathe Easy Darlington members and their carers, and are fully funded by the National Lottery Community fund until June 2024.
Before you can take part in sessions, you will need to complete a medical form, so it is wise to bring a note of medications, telephone numbers, etc to your first session. If possible please also telephone Vic to forewarn her of your first attendance, so she can allow time at the start of the session for completing the necessary paperwork.
"There is great attendance to our fun and informative classes. These classes are designed to follow on from NHS Pulmonary Rehabilitation courses, which we highly recommend prior to joining BEActive.
Any member of Breathe Easy Darlington can join in. You can do as much or as little as you like. I am only too happy to adapt what we do to meet personal special requirements".
There is easy and plentiful parking at the complex and we have a break between sessions to have a cuppa with cake - if anyone's been baking - or biscuits.
