Vocal Vagal Toning
Freeing the Voice
In this seminar, we will explore freeing the voice for self-expression and well-being. This includes vocal relaxation exercises, sounds to harmonize the body/mind and sounding for self-expression, creativity and connection.
The voice is the instrument of the body, expressing who we are and what we feel. It is the center of our well-being. Emotionally, singing is a vehicle to express emotions, socially it gives us a sense of belonging and spiritually connects us to our soul and something larger than ourselves. Singing also stimulates the Vagus nerve promoting nervous system relaxation. The Vagus is a communicator to the mind/body through the heart, gut, brain connection.
Energy is the foundation for the health of the mind and body. Singing moves energy or Chi through the breath and vibrations. While toning, we will tap specific Energy Medicine points, supporting the vagus nerve to promote calm and ease. When we get out of the way, spirit can move through us, opening up our creativity and inspiration.
The Kotamo (a hybrid instrument combining the Indian tanpura, Japanese Koto and Monochord) will accompany our voices for a portion of the program. The mics will be turned off for your privacy of sound exploration. Once the voice is opened, we will move to break-out rooms to connect in small groups, for fun vocal play to nourish the soul. Sing for your health by freeing the voice!
