THE MONDAY CHAKRA-VOICE CLASS:

This class is for those who are interested in developing their Voice Connection with a focus on the vital energy centres in the body – The Chakras.
Our voice resonates inside of our whole body, and, our whole body resonates inside of our voice.
Each part of our body has a say, a color, a texture that appears and is heard inside of your voice.  This class takes you through one chakra per week and explores the relationship every chakra has with the voice. For example, the root chakra is your legs, feet, base of spine and is the color red and the relationship to the voice is that of a Grounded, connected voice. 

We start with a short meditation to connect through each chakra then move into the chakra-relationship of that week.  We then explore sounds to connect the chakra.  The throat to the; root, belly, solar plexus, heart, throat, eyes and head.

Simple songs, voice exercises and movement assist with this connection.

THE TUESDAY VOICE CONNECTION/SOLO CLASS:

This class is for those who want to develop a song to sing in front of others as well as a group singing class to improve your voice and increase your connection to your body.

Each soloist sings their song three times in front of the group before singing it at the recital cabaret at the end of term.  This is an opportunity to not only work on the song but to feel what comes up when it’s your turn to sing and to work this through in front of others.
There is also an opportunity to come and observe the solo portion of the class and prepare for the next session to sing on your own.

We start the class with a short meditation and then into some voice exercises before singing together as a group. The last hour is dedicated to the solo singers of which there are three per class.  There is an emphasis in the class on connecting to your voice and to your body to experience the aliveness within. 

 

You will begin to understand the anxiety and the fear that can arise from being in the spotlight. This is a journey and one that is well worth it.
We all have parts of us that want to hide us and protect us from being hurt, and, we all have parts of us that are dying to be seen and heard for all that we are.

The beauty and light of who we are is pulling us forward, it takes a lot to hold us back but we do try, and this is the inner struggle.
The Tuesday Solo Voice Connection is a way for you to really meet the parts of you that really want you to shine!!
