Wellness Hour – On breathing

  • This event has passed.

Apr 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

5:00 pm ET | 4:00 pm CT | 3:00 pm MT | 2:00 pm PT

This month, we’ll be discussing breathing issues, which affect many in our community. We’ll be joined by Dan Wilson RRT, CPFT, AE-C, a respiratory therapist with the Indiana Joint Asthma Coalition (InJAC). Dan has FSHD himself. Also joining us is Frank Hanley.  Frank suffers with FSHD.  He is a certified Qigong instructor and uses martial arts practice and qigong breathing exercises to combat the disease.  Frank manages the “Qigong for FSHD” Facebook group where he shares qigong breathing exercises. Check out Dan’s video on “Respiratory Consideration of FSHD” to get up to speed on concepts and terminology, and join us for an informative conversation!

Our monthly Zoom meeting on Wellness is held on the second Monday of each month at 5:00-6:00 pm ET. Each month, we’ll have a conversation starter topic, but this is an informal gathering and if the discussion veers off in other directions, that’s OK! We hope you’ll drop by to enjoy the company of some of the wonderful people in our community.

The Wellness Hour is open to everyone in the FSHD community. This is your time to enjoy the company of fellow FSHers, share challenges, talk about what works for you, and feel validated and supported in whatever you may be going through.
