Singing for Breathing Group
Breathe Sing is our singing for breathing group, offering a supportive and sociable way for participants to experience the benefits of singing for lung health.
The class is led by vocal coach and singer, Cleo Lane, and includes vocal and physical warm ups and a series of songs, all of which are designed to support breath control, ease symptoms of breathlessness whilst of course having fun!
The demand for singing to improve breath control and wellbeing for patients with respiratory conditions is clear, and it has been amazing to see Guy’s and St Thomas’ patients seeking opportunities that will benefit their lung health, with now over 25 members enjoying these breathing exercises and songs from around the world.
We are excited to be developing this programme in collaboration with Guy’s and St Thomas’ Respiratory Team – and due to high demand, we have increased our sessions from monthly to weekly.
Singing has really made a difference to my lung function - I feel much better after a session. The improvement is significant and long-lasting. The group sessions are really something I look forward to - singing together in a group is really good fun.
We continue to deliver Breathe Sing virtually during Covid-19 under the new title Breathe Sing from your sofa. This brings the participants together online from the comfort of their own homes, to sing to improve lung health, manage their breathing and combat isolation.

I absolutely love running these sessions! We have fun, connect, build up friendships, laugh and I see such a transformation in the participants’ posture and general state of well being in just an hour. It’s like magic!
