Listening Inward: Breath, Body & Song
Singing opens us to a myriad of internal textures, emotions, and sensations in our bodies and in our felt experience. It also is a tool for regulating our systems, for bringing us back in touch with ourselves. In this session, we will be merging embodiment and somatic tools with our singing practice to more deeply listen in to what is present. We will move slowly and spend time in song and silence, noticing and grounding in our bodies and our experience as we go.
