CIRCLE SINGING LONDON (for voice and yoga info scroll down)
Who loves to sing, treasures to stay in the present moment and wants to be part of a creative community?
Circle Singing London, formed in 2014, is designed to explore creativity through vocal improvisation; regularly collaborating with various music festivals in London and visiting unusual places to explore sound effects and acoustics such as Leake Street Tunnels, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park's Bridges, the Stepney Green farm, London Bridge's railway arches...
No experience necessary!
Do you love to sing but feel uncertain about your vocal abilities? Are you a professional singer who yearns to explore the possibilities of human voice? ...then this project is for YOU.
What to expect?
Circle Singing London is different from a traditional choir. We start with body & breath & voice warm-ups, follow up by an exploration of vocal techniques and a basic improvisation vocabulary. We gradually move from silence, listening, toning, exploring rhythms and the vocal creativity of the group, towards guided vocal sound exercises, sound bathing and circle singing. We learn to trust that everything we need is already here, waiting to be discovered. These sessions are based on principle of integration of each participant.
Would like to combine vocal techniques, specific yoga poses, breath-work, poetry, guided meditation and play to invoke creativity and free the body from habitual tensions to discover more authentic and spontaneous vocal expression?
We will combine specific yoga positions with contemporary vocal techniques. We uncover tools and exercises that encourage the flow of energy to open our breath and untangle knots in our body, mind and voice.
All welcome! The process is applicable to all musicians, singers, actors, storytellers, teachers, yoga practitioners, public speakers, performers and anyone who is interested in authentic vocal expression.
*EACH SESSION IS DEVOTED TO A DIFFERENT THEME*
What to expect?
Each session will start with relaxation - to rest your mind, breath and body; follow up with muscles, breath and voice warm-ups. Main part of every session is a sequence of specially designed postures that are accompanied by unique guidelines that support your breathing, sounding and vocal exploration.
