Hillmead school and Conewood Manor nursing home singing mentor Isobel Bradshaw hopes breathing and relaxation sessions will hit the right note for Covid-19 recovery
People recovering from Covid-19 are being given the chance to take part in free breathing and relaxation sessions, thanks to a Bishop’s Stortford singer.
Isobel Bradshaw, who trained at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London before becoming a chorus member at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, wants to put on virtual classes for people in the community.
The 58-year-old has been a singing teacher for more than 20 years and mentors students young and old in Stortford. She is a vocal coach to pupils at Hillmead Primary School and is Conewood Manor Nursing Home’s wellbeing singing activity leader.
Isobel also teaches singing to groups such as the Stansted U3A Singers and the U3A Saffron Harmony Choir. She is hoping to give something back to the community in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
In 2004, Isobel qualified as a Sivananda yoga teacher and has taught gentle yoga and meditation classes to groups such as Mind in Bishop’s Stortford, which is based at The Wellbeing Centre in Sworders Barn, off North Street.
For her virtual Covid-recovery sessions, Isabel is going to marry her knowledge of yoga and singing and focus on practices that students can develop to sustain their mental and physical wellbeing.
