Singing is good for your health


As a Complementary Practitioner and a member of an award winning community choir Funky Voices I can speak from first hand experience that this statement is true, but I know some of you may be more sceptical so lets look at some facts.

Singing is an aerobic activity (if you join an active choir like mine this can be in more ways than one) Aerobic activity increases oxygenatiion in the blood stream and exercises muscles in the upper body. So you may even loose some weight. (Bonus)

Singing involves regular, controlled breathing, much as Yoga, so it helps us relax and increase lung capacity.

Scientific University Studies throughout the world have all come to the conclusion that singing has been shown to reduce stress levels, boost the immune system, improve lung capacity and breathing, posture , confidence and self esteem.

To top all this its a chance to meet new friends and have fun. So if you can’t pluck up the courage to join a choir just yet, check our some performances by your local community choir. If it happens to be Funky Voices we welcome you to our audience and you can be sure you will leave us with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
