What is ENCOREplus?

ENCOREplus is the umbrella program that includes YWCA Encore, Pilates Beyond Breast Cancer and future Aqua Motion Beyond Breast Cancer programs that support women in different stages of breast cancer recovery.

When your whole life has been turned upside down by breast cancer; you may feel you have lost a sense of routine, wellness and self-care.

YWCA Encore is the ideal first step to taking time for you, your needs and your wellbeing. YWCA Encore is a holistic program that can  help connect you to those missing pieces and support you in gaining back strength, mobility, confidence and a safe and supportive community.

Pilates Beyond Breast Cancer is the next step in your ENCOREplus journey. Typically recommended for folks who have completed the YWCA Encore program, it is focused on building strength and mobility.

Both programs are currently offered virtually.
