New Dates to be Determined – BREATH, SOUND, MOVEMENT, & EMOTIONAL RELEASE: Tools to recover from stress and trauma



To register for Day One only, see the schedule below.


Develop an understanding of the power and the pitfalls of using movement & vocal sound to relieve stress and unreleased trauma.

Regulate your body. Quiet your mind.
Deepen and expand awareness.
Find and release the stuck places in your body.

This SomaSound course explores: the link between the human voice, movement, and the limbic system; the impact on the body of the fight-flight-freeze responses to trauma; how vocal sound and movement can impact general well-being, including as a tool for mindfulness and vagal stimulation.

Experience simple exercises to release tension and shift into a calm and focused alpha brainwave state as well as deeper states of awareness.

Discover how vowel & consonant sound and the rhythm, flow, and shape of movement are all used to express emotion as well as create a sense of playfulness and freedom. A method for accessing and releasing “stuck’ or unexpressed emotion will be demonstrated; cautions and contraindications will be discussed.
