Sing the Body Electric: Wellness for Performers and Teachers (NATS)

  • Marriott Mission Valley 8757 Rio San Diego Drive San Diego, CA (map)

From the website:

"Join NATS for a workshop at the beautiful Marriott Mission Valley in San Diego; this NATS Winter Workshop offers sessions to help both performers and their teachers find greater freedom in their bodies. Exploring various modalities, including the Alexander Technique, Body Mapping and Yoga for Singers, our expert clinicians bring decades of experience in helping musicians find greater physical awareness and freedom.

"A primer on the Alexander Technique, followed by master class sessions to apply the technique in one’s singing and teaching lead us to greater body awareness. In-depth sessions on Body Mapping help participants to produce efficient, coordinated, effective movement. Body Mapping, over time, with application, allows any musician to sing or play like a natural. It is a tool that is useful in many different setti ngs from music studios to exercise studios and to all of the somatic disciplines. YogaVoice® explores the eight fold path of Classical Yoga and its application to the lives and work of performing artists, voice professionals, and people who are interested in improving their communication skills and connecting to their innate creativity.
 
"YogaVoice® is an organic way of working with an individual to bring balance and integrity to both the physical instrument and the creative Self, and can complement any vocal method. We complement our focus on the performer’s body by addressing neurological issues of both singing and teaching."
