ILFA is delighted to announce a new online Sing Strong for Pulmonary Fibrosis online class for patients and carers. A 12-week pilot programme will be delivered once a week by Ciara Meade (Choir Mistress) and her colleague Roisin Calahan (physiotherapist) will assist. Classes will start at the end of April and will last approximately 60-70 minutes each.
Research has shown that singing for lung health classes that are delivered by a trained specialist provided valuable psychological and social benefits to people living with respiratory conditions. Some of the benefits include
– improvement breathing control
– better management of breathlessness
– improved posture
– relief of anxiety
– fun, enjoyment and social interaction
You do not need to be a good singer or have singing experience. The classes will take place online and everyone will sing (muted) from the comfort of their home, while training and exercising their breathing muscles under the expert guidance of a choir mistress.
This activity is supported with funding from Air Liquide Healthcare Ireland and BOC Healthcare Ireland. We are enormously grateful for their kind support.
