This vocal toning workshop is a fun and profound vocal exploration. Learn some simple vocal toning exercises, overtone singing and gain powerful tools for your own practice and healing. In a safe supportive environment you can learn how to use your voice for releasing stress and blockages, increasing harmony and clarity and raising your vibration. This is not a singing workshop! You don’t need to be a singer! In fact If you feel shy or constricted with your voice and expression, this can be a great gift for you.

Toning has a neurochemical effect on the body, boosting the immune system and causing the release of endorphins. Toning assists in good breathing and posture, giving the body an inner massage and stimulation. It also helps us to release stress and repressed emotions. Regular toning and humming helps to re-energize the body and restore health to the mind, body and spirit. No previous skills or experience required.
