Vocal Power, Freedom, and Ease: Support and the Core Muscles

Do you lose your voice? Get vocally tired? Desire more vocal power? Want to reach your audience better?

This workshop is an in-depth study of the technique for healthy vocal support. We’ll also use somatics to connect to intrinsic core muscles that give the body the support it needs for freedom and ease in movement. This allows the voice to be resonant, full, effortless, and efficient regardless of the physical activity.

The course offers deep physical awareness, how to balance effort & ease, build muscles for alignment, release external muscles that inhibit vocal power and breath, and more! The result: freedom and power in your voice and a new way to live in your body.

Cellular Listening – Bringing Communication Alive with Presence

Do you feel like communication is stilted?

Have an intuition that part of the problem is that you don’t fully listen?

Or maybe you get overwhelmed in conversation – taking too much in?

We’ll dive into the wisdom of the cells and the auditory system to find answers of how to enhance communication. Let the cells guide you as you choose what information to take in and what to say no to. Listen with the whole body. Create clear boundaries. This workshop is a somatic offering that brings connection to self, the world around you, and your community.

Presence and the Senses

June 13-14, 2015
1-4pm

Listening – a lost art. And, yet, is vital to effective communication. I often speak of vocal power when I describe the work I offer. When I speak of power, I mean speaking from your truth, where your whole being is involved in the sending and receiving of the message, and inviting true and intentional connection. This workshop is designed to help you achieve just that.
