2018 Workshop Dates:
10am-2pm Sep 29 2018 – Heart Connection through Vocal Harmonies
Come along to this half-day voice workshop to feel powerfully connected to yourself and others through group harmony singing This workshop will open your heart and make your spirit soar. You don’t need to have any singing or voice-work experience and no one will be asked to sing solo. Through simple vocal exercises, movements and chants from around the world, we will open our hearts to ourselves and each other. The human love hormone, oxytocin, will flow and we will meet our innate need for human connection. This is a relaxed, friendly and safe space, where there is no right or wrong way to use the voice. It is held in Clonlea Yoga Studio in Blackrock which is a stunning light filled space overlooking lush leafy gardens.You will leave renewed and uplifted.
