About the event

Free singing sessions for people with respiratory conditions.  
Sing For Your Lungs is a free weekly singing group for people with long-term respiratory conditions such as:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Fibrosis

Research shows that singing can help people with respiratory conditions in a number of ways including exercising the major muscle groups in the upper body, improving the efficiency of the cardiovascular system and improving oxygen intake leading to increased alertness. Through singing, vocal exercise and postural work led by experienced facilitators, those attending the group may see an improvement in their symptoms.

Session information: Thursdays 4th & 11th June, 3 - 4pm.  Free to those with a respiratory condition.  
Venue: The Whittington Hospital, Magdala Avenue, London N19 5NF.   
Facilitators: Angela Reith & Katie Rose.
Contact: the Respiratory Team office on 020 7288 5474 before attending.
