8th February from 10:00 - 19:30
On Saturday 8th February, The Gainsborough Bath Spa is hosting a day-long retreat with Wellness-Sing. Wellness-Sing is an innovative retreat company, which marries the benefits of singing and spas and encourages participants to ‘find their voice’.The day will include two singing sessions led by charismatic choral director Eamonn O’Dwyer, a sound healing session with local artist Bex Bridgford, a two-course lunch in Dan Moon at The Gainsborough Restaurant followed by entry to the stunning thermal spa pools and saunas within Spa Village.
The aim is to introduce a variety of vocal techniques to singers of all abilities and the chance to sing in harmony in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Guests will be experimenting with their voices and learning more about how they can use them through a mixture of vocal warm ups and singing games. Attendees will learn new songs in parts and perform together, for and to each other, discovering just how beneficial singing can be to your general wellbeing. Bex Bridgford will also hold a meditative sound healing session after lunch, adapting this ancient form of healing to restore balance to the chakra system.
Entry to the Spa Village facilities will round off the day of well-being, as guests “take the waters” with a spa circuit that includes dipping in two natural thermal pools of varying temperatures, traditional and infrared saunas, a steam room, an ice alcove, and elegant relaxation areas. There will also be the opportunity to sing what we’ve learnt over the course of the day, for and to each other, from the spa balcony.
Whatever your musical background - if you are curious about the many wellness benefits that group singing can have, this day is for you!
