GROUP VOICE CLASSES - The LINKLATER PROGRESSION
Your voice can be an open window between yourself and your listener. When it is relaxed, free and resonant, and truly connected to your thoughts and feelings, you can develop a strong, positive bond with your partner or audience. When it is disconnected and tight, because of tension or blocks, you may push away and /or find it difficult, if not impossible, to create bonds with your listener.
Group classes are based on the work of Kristin Linklater and her “Freeing the Natural Voice” method. By following a progressive series of exercises, you will become aware of how tension can restrict or block your free vocal expression, discover ways to release the blocks, and then develop a stronger voice with more resonance and range, so that you are able to speak with your own, unique and natural voice in an open, effortless way. The work connects your voice to ‘what’ you are saying beyond just the words. It is often less the words we say than ‘how’ we say them that emotionally and unconsciously affects a listener.
All courses are practical and active. Wear comfortable clothing. You will need to bring a yoga mat or large beach towel for some of the floor work. This work is suitable for all adults regardless of age.
Because the work is progressive, you must complete the Introductory Course before moving on to the intermediate course. Exceptions are made for participants who have studied Linklater work elsewhere. Courses will be offered on a rotating basis. Contact us if you have questions.
