Class locations



All ESCAPE-pain for backs sites have suspended face to face classes during the covid-19 outbreak. We look forward to working with these sites when the situation improves, to get classes back up and running. We know that many sites are exploring ways of supporting their participants to remain active during this period.

If you were attending your classes at a leisure centre it is possible that your provider is offering telephone support or virtual classes on the Internet, either live via Facebook or recorded sessions via YouTube. To find out more we recommend visiting your provider's website to see how they have adapted their services.

​For any queries please contact us on hello@escape-pain.org
