ABOUT THIS EVENT
Do you have the quarantine blues? Are your voice and body feeling stiff and shut down without an outlet for playful expression? Would you like to learn to sing and move from a place of self-inquiry, delight, and freedom with a deep and vibrant community, without ever leaving your living room?
Join Colorado vocal coaches Roy Willey and Amy Biondo for an afternoon Zoom workshop exploring the intersection of mindfulness with the voice, breath, and body.
Learn the practice of Contemplative Voice and Movement, an improvisational singing and moving meditation, and discover and celebrate your own authentic voice and movement as you practice over a “sound bed” of layered vocals created in the moment by Roy and Amy. The practice of sustained, improvisational singing and moving not only calms the nervous system, it grounds us in the present moment and connects us to our creative, intuitive selves.
In this workshop, you'll explore all of these practices from the comfort and privacy of your own home. All voices welcome, no prior experience necessary.
All ages welcome
