Breathing Space

Location

Based in the Shropshire Hills

Description

Singing for health and wellbeing.

The Breathing Space project is currently made up of two groups:
1 A fortnightly dementia-friendly group focussing on the joy of singing, which is comprised of clients and carers from Mayfair’s Beacon service. We have recently been able to reopen this to carer/cared for couples in our wider community.

2 A weekly group focussed more around building self esteem and mindfulness: offering nurturing support with a range of health and wellbeing needs including anxiety, chronic pain and the effects of Long Covid. I sometimes describe it as, “a sort of pilates for singers.”

For both groups we incorporate breathing exercises, a few familiar pieces and many songs in a wide range of styles which are new to participants. We also explore improvisation and song writing activities.

Session times

Both groups run on Wednesday afternoons, 1 at 1.30 - 2.30 and the other from 3 -4 pm. Please contact Kate for more information.
