Singing for Breathing

Breathing difficulties? Stressed, depressed or anxious? Let us help!

Tina leads these sessions on Mondays at St Josephs Church Hall, Cromer Road, Sheringham, NR26 8RT between 2pm and 3:30pm. Free parking at the back of the hall (entrance through gates next to the medical centre).

Refreshments are provided but please bring a bottle of water with you, to help you keep hydrated during the sessions and help avoid spillages. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.

£5 voluntary donation per session politely requested (including tea/coffee). No-one excluded if unable to pay however, if you value the sessions and are able to contribute donations are gratefully received and will help us keep them running.

Songs are tailored around breathing exercises using established Singing for Lung Health techniques. The sessions are also affiliated with Asthma + Lung UK.

Movement will be encouraged as part of warm-ups and throughout the session including the types of exercises taught in pulmonary rehabilitation courses to help increase general health benefits and physical activity.

The primary aims of the course are to help people:
– Manage breathlessness
– Breathe better
– Reduce stress/anxiety
– Increase physical and mental health and wellbeing
– Increase physical activity
– Build confidence
– Feel motivated and confident to go on to join other community/physical/social activities (which might include more singing and music-making!)

Although sessions are designed for participants with lung conditions and breathing difficulties, the course is also ideal for people with anxiety, stress or depression.

We are also starting a Singing for Breathing Course in North Walsham, thanks to excellent results from our first course and additional funding (as below). If you’d like to join us please email

These sessions have been brought to you with support from The Together Fund, Active Norfolk (Sport England) and the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team at Kelling Hospital.
