Frank Hanley
“During a check-up, the doctor asked me if I was waking up with headaches. He was concerned that FSHD could be weakening my diaphragm…  I started to practice special breathing exercises to strengthen my diaphragm and improve my breathing. Within days, the headaches were gone.”

For the April “Feeling Fit with FSHD” workshops, Frank Hanley will present several exercises to flex, stretch and strengthen the feet, ankles, knees and legs.  He will also review several breathing techniques to help strengthen the diaphragm and improve breathing.

Frank Hanley is a martial artist, author, and teacher of Kung Fu, Taijiquan and multiple Qigong (chee-gong) styles and practices.  He organized and launched the FSHD Society South Carolina Chapter and served as Chapter Director.

For people living with FSHD who are interested in exercise and fitness, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00 pm (noon) U.S. Eastern Time. Come dressed for exercise and have on hand any safety and assistive devices you need. Not every exercise is appropriate or safe for every individual, so please use your best judgement and consult your health care provider.

Please come prepared with a stable chair or stool (back of chair is optional). You can also choose to bring light weights ranging from 1lb to 5lb.
