Re-imagining the Voice by Bisan Toron

Our voice has the capacity to gather and reflect our many dimensions. In deepening our relationship to our voice, we begin to bridge the chasm between our emotions and what actually comes out of the mouth as expression. In re- imagining the voice as the muscle of the soul, we learn to maximize its freedom and our ability to resonate our note in the world.

In this workshop, we will explore what it means to sound your inner life. Through breath work and vocal exercises that are grounded in the map of the body, we will delve into your voice’s unique colors and nuances in an atmosphere that is unintimidating, fun and safe.

This workshop is ideal for beginners as well as anyone interested in deepening their relationship with voice and sound. All levels are welcome!
