Breathe & Connect is a programme designed by darts specially for adults with Long Covid and other long-term breathing-related issues.

Long Covid means your symptoms carry on even after your Covid infection has finished. Symptoms might include breathlessness, fatigue, difficultly focussing, pain and/or feeling depressed or anxious. Breathe & Connect uses singing, breathing techniques, relaxation and gentle movement to help manage these symptoms.

Participants have reported numerous benefits to taking part in sessions: “My mood is raised in these sessions, like climbing a mountain of joy - all else just waits outside the door and I pick it up on the way home.”

And “I’ve not one negative thing to say about these sessions…They are very morale boosting and we laugh so much - but only with each other.”

Sessions run in seven-week blocks. Booking is essential. Email [email protected]
