Wellness-Sing Retreat

with Jane Kitchen and El Etherington

 

A magical weekend at Green Farm, where you’ll have the chance to “find your voice” through a series of small group singing workshops, to relax in the spa, to reconnect with the natural world.


The aim of Wellness-Sing retreats is to introduce a variety of vocal techniques to singers of all abilities, with the aim of discovering just how beneficial singing can be to our general wellbeing. We'll be experimenting with our voices, learning more about what they can do and how we can use them through a mixture of vocal warm-ups and singing games. We'll learn new songs in parts and perform together, singing in harmony in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.


Over the course of the weekend, there will also be time for relaxing in the on-site spa, optional yoga/sound healing classes, and connecting with each other over communal meals based around local ingredients from the Kent countryside. Whatever your musical background – if you are curious about the many wellness benefits that group singing can have, this retreat is for you!

What's added:
  • Two 2-hour singing sessions

  • One yoga/sound therapy session

  • Campfire supper with singing and storytelling

  • ESPA Spa treatments available for extra cost

Who is the retreat ideal for?

Wellness-Sing retreats are for anyone with an interest in singing, or an interest in how group singing benefits mental and physical health. Previous participants include a number of seasoned singers who've enjoyed our retreats, as well as people who have never sung in a group before but who were interested in trying it out in a casual setting. Most of those people expressed an interest in finding a local choir at the end of the retreat.

"I remembered that I love singing for fun – with no agenda, no concert, no expectations, no requirements, no pressure" 

"The weekend gave me a sense of healing. I constantly seek peace in my life as a kind of sanctuary from normal. The prospect (and reality!) of a spa weekend away is closely bound with a sense of peace."
