Embodiment through singing & movement
The workshop “Embodiment through singing & movement” offers an in-depth exploration of the relationship between breath, singing and movement with the aim to liberate the voice from unnecessary tension, physical and emotional blockages. We experience resonance and sound vibrations through the dynamic interplay between voice and flow of movement. In this safe space created we embrace both our strength and vulnerability with the aim to establish a profound connection between mind, body and spirit as an alternative way of healing.
At the second part of the workshop we are going to introduce the creative practice of “circle singing” exploring improvisation through the use of voice and any other sounds that can be produced by our bodies. In this collective game there is no right or wrong. The only requirement is an open mind and curiosity. Through this practice we are going to deepen our connection with ourselves and the other group members, develop a deep sense of active listening and expand our imagination. One of the group members starts by introducing a melody or/and rhythmic idea in a loop and the rest of us gradually enter in response to what we hear. In this way we create songs and soundscapes in the moment, celebrating the healing power of collective sound and tapping into our innate creativity.
The workshop is open to everyone, designed and adjusted for any level, experience and age.
My purpose and responsibility as an artist started to change when I had to face one of the hardest times of my life. I have been dealing with long covid symptoms for more than a year now, which affected my job, my ability to breathe and my overall health. During this difficult time, I started to document my journey from pain, avoidance behaviour and debilitation to finding strength, light and purpose.
The biggest step towards healing happened when I gradually moved from stagnation and hopelessness to finding hope and purpose, embracing and working through ‘imperfection’, as well as realising and truly appreciating the power of the arts to heal, comfort and provoke change. I started to gradually incorporate my cross-disciplinary methods developed through my own personal healing into my private teaching and community work (special needs schools, care-homes) and noticed the huge impact it had on my students/patients. It started to develop into an alternative way of therapy. People’s engagement and enthusiasm grew and every lesson/meeting became a safety haven for them. A new sense of purpose grew in my teaching as well as a newly found need and inspiration. This journey made me come into contact with my strength as a woman, as a creator, as an interpreter of stories, as a vehicle of emotions and as a community music facilitator.
I therefore dedicated myself to creating workshops focused on mindfulness and embodiment through singing, breathing and movement with the aim to establish a better connection between mind, body and spirit, unmask suppressed emotions, release tension and explore the strength of music made as a community in the form of “circle singing”. As a development of the workshop “Embodiment through singing & movement” I also offer opportunities to lear songs from different parts of the world, travel through music to distant lands and experience what distinguishes one another and what connects us all. From my experience true healing can only start to happen when we accept imperfection, embrace vulnerability and seek to find inspiration and opportunities of connection.
