How a virtual Superchoir is bringing together communities during lockdown
Feel good vibes for entire households. Here’s how a welsh business is spreading positivity across the UK.
With new measures of self isolation and social distancing in effect across the country many people feeling anxious about their health, uncertain about the future, and isolated from society. People and companies are taking creative approaches to survive but also to encourage wellbeing, positivity, healthy eating and exercise.
A Welsh company, Inspire Me, is using singing to bring communities together and lift spirits. The Cardiff based company, formerly known as Sing & Inspire is a people development specialising in providing workplace choirs for wellbeing, mindset training and corporate team building activities.
In response to the countrywide lockdown they have launched a virtual singing group, Superchoir, where anyone with a love for singing can relive anxiety and stress, have fun and build strong friendships all from the comfort of their own home.
Singing in a choir has been proven to reduce stress levels, improve social wellbeing, increase energy levels, and heighten our sense of happiness!
Singing helps to improve breathing, posture and muscle tension. Group singing is also known to be effective in pain relief and stress relief as it reduces the stress hormone cortisol and boosts the Immunoglobulin A antibody.
Sessions run every Thursday at 6pm BST and are open to members of the public.
There is a huge community of people who sing in choirs for the amazing wellbeing benefits, and it’s clear that community is needed now more than ever.
Superchoir works to spread joy and positive energy and mobilise communities to come together through song. There are no auditions, no singing on your own and everything is taught by ear with professionally recorded tracks.
