Sound Journey to Self,
a voice & frame drum retreat
9am-4pm @ Flower of Life Yoga
Our voice is a powerful instrument. Have you ever experienced all its wonders?
Reflection of our inner universe, the voice is accessible, vulnerable and “younique” to us.
It is our way of communication, expression, connection, and celebration. Though social and cultural conditionings, combined with emotional traumas, have crystallized in our body, we have the perfect tool to free them!
We will move & dance, sound and sing and laugh!
Let’s dive deeper into Nada Yoga, the Yoga of Sound, uncovering our own frequencies and their self-healing abilities!
The frame drum is an ancient percussion. It has been played around the world for a long time and is known under the name of tar, bendir, tof, daf…. Its roles along history took different paths, and its benefits are now backed up by neurosciences. We will learn the basic strokes of the lap style, how to embody and note rhythms, explore our own inner rhythms and entrainment, co-create a piece with frame drum & voice!
Please bring a notebook, pen, water bottle and comfortable clothing.
Investment: $175 for the day
