New Authentic Voice Classes for Spring 
April to June 2018 

******************************************************************************************
Group and Private classes for those who wish to find Freedom and Release in their life through Singing and Expression.

We all love to sing! What is in the way of your voice?

Does your voice feel stuck in you?
Do you lack confidence?
Is it hard to connect to the emotion of the song?
Are you terrified to sing in front of others?

This term we are uncovering the hidden secrets of the nervous system and the voice in particular the relationship between the solar plexus and the throat/voice connection.
The solar plexus is our power centre and where the nervous system gets all fired up in you. Understanding how your voice relates to your nervous system is key to singing.
Each class will help you to find a key for yourself to finally sing with freedom and authenticity.

“Every awareness-process in the human being is based on the nervous system, which functions like a sort of mirror.  Which part of the whole nervous system can be involved here?  It is the sympathetic nervous system; specifically, that part known as the solar plexus, which is embedded in the musculature of the diaphragm and the surrounding region.”   Taken from Uncovering the Voice – Valborg Werbeck-Svärdström

VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE WORKSHOPS – Workshops occur once a month at the Storefront Studio 6324-106 Street. 

In these workshops we discover the world of sound and it’s many gifts and how to apply these gifts to the voice and to life.

*Tuesday’s Authentic Voice Class
Solo Spot – Participant signs up to sing a solo at the recital at the end of the 11 weeks and works through the song in front of the class in 3 classes throughout the session.
Observer spot – For those who do not wish to sing solo at the Recital but wish to participate in the group songs and exercises.

*Monday’s Voice and Body Alignment Sessions:

Get in touch with your energy, get in touch with your voice, your charge!
These sessions will help you to understand how to align your vital energy with your voice and body.  Using gentle movements, voice releases and awareness exercises to align with life force creative energy.   Without any pushing or working hard your body will learn a whole new way of feeling alive. 

Do you feel low in energy? Does your voice feel tight and held? Do you suffer from depression or feeling great one moment and then low another?  

The voice responds to how your energy is aligned and flowing within you.  When your voice is out of alignment with energy there are countless problems with how the voice functions.

All sessions are taught by Anna Beaumont.  A Health Professional in Integrative Body Psychotherapy, singer and composer Anna blends the worlds of voice, energy and psychology to help you connect to your Authentic Voice.
The Authentic Voice is an exploration of; authenticity, how we communicate with each other, singing, energy, and how life and the sound of our voice reflects who we are. 
♠Through the practice of: vocal exercises, meditation, movement and group singing. 
The voice is a reflection from the connection‘ is a phrase I use to help people understand that our voice is simply reflecting how we are feeling in any given moment.

 It reflects where you are in your life. The exploration of the following qualities is a lens for your voice and for your life:

Range – vocal range of available notes
Balance – stability and flexibility within the voice
Tone – the balance of light and dark within one note
Emotion – the energy and the feeling tone within one note

“Anna created the perfect environment – warm, friendly, and inviting. I felt safe to explore and experiment. Her approach allowed me to coax my voice out from shy hiding, swirl it within my body, and pay attention and intention to where in my body my voice was picking up energy. My voice emerged like I had not heard it before! Was that me?!?! My goal of pushing my comfort level with my singing voice was absolutely accomplished. Thank you Anna for your guidance, wisdom, and openness. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to make a connection with their voice.”  Niki Sibera –

 About the Authentic Voice Classes….

The Authentic Voice classes are an opportunity for people to re-connect to their inner authenticity and have this truth reflected outwards through the singing voice. This takes some doing, and, some undoing of what we have been swallowing in our lives. The need to be perfect, the need to accomplish and to be everything for everyone.  
As we undo these inner knots to our truth more and more authenticity begins to shine through the sound of our voice, we just can’t help it. This magic is alive and well inside of us all. The Authentic Voice is a way to reconnect to it and then be seen in the expression of it.

“In this moment right now, this love comes to rest in me.”

Connecting to your bodies energy field and then bringing sound to this field is a very grounding and clearing experience indeed. These classes are very helpful for you find your Authentic Voice in every sense of the word.  To tune into your self and trust your inner voice and then to speak your outward Authentic Voice. Singing is the tool for this, not the goal, but the medium between the worlds of inner and outer experience.  

“Out beyond ideas of right and wrong doing there is a field, I will meet you there.”

If you are singer and want to improve your singing then you will gain more presence to your voice and this will in turn build your outward presence in your voice.  If you are someone who wishes to connect with the here and now, then this is another way of doing it that adds the aspect of sound to meditation to strengthen and ground who you are in the world of form.  

The classes are a combination of meditation connection, vocal exercises, group songs, understanding and experiencing the chakra system and opportunities to sing in front of a supportive group.  The emphasis is on the feeling and presence of energy as a guide to allowing the voice to drop further into your being, therefore creating more Authenticity. 

“Drop in, drop down, through and all around, into this Holy Ground.”
