The Musical Body at OneHeart Yoga and Meditation at Abbotsford Convent
Join Charlotte Roberts, originator since 1991 and facilitator since 2003 of The Musical Body process for SUMMER, AUTUMN and WINTER series and drop in sessions at OneHeart Yoga. The intention of this practice is to cultivate vitality through improvised singing and to explore the spaces between life and music. The Musical Body is a delicious opportunity to connect to and investigate the relationships between body, voice, sound, play, breath, text, listening, place, silence, movement, music, song-writing, life and imagination.

~~~WHAT?~~~For one and a half hours every Wednesday morning we will play and investigate the connections between body, voice, breath, sound, silence, stillness, movement, text, music, life, space, people, imagination and improvisation. These classes will be a safe space with a responsive relationship to structure and change to allow everyone who attends to follow their unique interest and nourish their life, music, life-music and musical-life. Through The Musical Body process, we will develop ease, awareness, spontaneity, musicality, artistry and curiosity.
From January to July 2019 the area of our research will be an exploration of what music emerges in real-time as we connect to the heart organ, lungs, digestive organs, kidneys, ears, listening, and skeleton.
~~~WHO?~~~You might be curious about your body-voice-music, you might have doubts/or a strong belief about whether or not you are a singer or creative person. You may sing only in the shower and fear you are tone-deaf or be convinced you can't sing. You might be a professional musician interested to develop, discover and connect with wonder, flow, play and creativity or to improve on particular skills in song-writing, musicality, performance and/or voice. And/or you may be a therapist, teacher, carer, parent, free spirit, explorer or person interested to explore your creative body-voice.
