Singing for Breathing

by The Cheyne Gang Claimed

Social Activity, Conditions, Health & Social Care Services

We set up and run singing groups for people with long term lung conditions such as COPD, Bronchiectasis, severe Asthma and Pulmonary Fibrosis. These diseases cause breathlessness which can be very debilitating and lead to anxiety, low mood and social isolation. Learning natural breathing techniques and singing in a community group has positive physical, mental and social health benefits. We currently have 4 groups in Edinburgh, 1 in Innerleithen and 1 in Glasgow. Sessions are run every 2 weeks and last 2 hours with a break for coffee, cake and chat. More information about our groups and the benefits can be found on our website.
