    Hi BeverlyDeMarco and thanks for telling us how helpful you found the article by our own Kathi MacNaughton about seated exercise/dance. I’m sure Kathi will be gratified to read your comment.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re facing the challenges you shared with the community (colonoscopy and endoscopy), and the upcoming lung scan. Through it all, it’s good to hear you’ll still be able to do the Zumba exercise at home until you can return to pulmonary rehabilitation. Keep up the good work, Beverly – it’s always good to hear from you!

    I was just looking at the COPD WEBSITE AND READ ABOUT KATYH MACHAUGHTON ZUMBA GOLD INSTRUCTOR ABOUT SITTING IN A CHAIR TO DO EXERCISE, I WAS HAPPY TO COME ACROSS THAT BECAUSE I HAVENT BEEN TO CARDIAC REHAB TO EXERCISE IN OVER A MONTH, I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME BREATHING AND WAS SO OUT OF BREATHE THAT I COULDNT EVEN LEAVE MY HOUSE. I ALSO HAD AN COLONOSCOPY AND ENDOSCOPY AND HAVE ONE MORE SCAN NEXT MONTH OF MY LUNG. ALSO HAVE A COUPLE OF CLOGGED ARTIES. I TRY TO USE MY HOME TREAD MILL AND STATIONARY BIKE BUT GET TOO OUT OF BREATHE. I AM IN STAGE 4 SO I AM TRYING TO DO MY BEST DAY TO DAY. I WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS ZUMBA EXERCISE AT HOME UNTIL I CAN GET BACK TO PULMONARY REHAB. THANK YOU KATHI
