Breathing Space


Based in the Shropshire Hills


Singing for health and wellbeing.

The Breathing Space project is currently made up of two groups:
1 A weekly dementia-friendly group focussing on the joy of singing, which is comprised of clients and carers from Mayfair’s Beacon service and carer/cared for couples in our wider community. This group is in receipt of a Power Of Music grant from the Utley Foundation.

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.” The group is very grateful for the support of Mayfair Community Centre.

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, the dementia friendly group at 1.30 - 2.30pm and the weekly group from 3 - 4.15 pm. Please contact Kate for more information.
