Welcome to our guide to helping those living with Long COVID.
Did you know that breathing techniques practised by professional opera singers can help those living with Long COVID and other respiratory conditions? Our programme so far indicates strengthened mental health and wellbeing, along with significant improvements in respiratory health.
If Long COVID is impacting your health, we want to help. Get practising with our exercises on demand, sing along with our Covid Composers Songbook - written by participants about their experience living with Long COVID, or register to take part in our weekly online sessions.

Breath Cycle The Breath Cycle project originally ran in 2013. Scottish Opera and Gartnavel General Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Service worked together to explore whether learning classical singing techniques, including breath control, can improve the wellbeing of cystic fibrosis patients. Due to the high risk of infection for those with cystic fibrosis, the project also explored how patients might interact safely with each other, using the internet as a means of meeting, learning and building new communities. For more information on the project, please visit the Breath Cycle website.
