Unlocking Vishuddha through Sound and Song at Halifax Yoga, Halifax Nova Scotia

to Nov 11

Unlocking Vishuddha through Sound and Song at Halifax Yoga, Halifax Nova Scotia

Vishuddha or the throat chakra is our channel for communication, self expression and creative identity. It is our best tool for expressing emotion, feeling, need and self identity. It is the channel through which we best connect to the vibrational pull of the universe and dance in it’s rhythm. It’s power is paramount for personal change and growth. Any sort of block in the fifth chakra can cause stifling feelings of being misunderstood, unheard and lonely, leaving a sense of disconnectedness from ourselves and each other. 

So what strategies do we have to keep this channel open? How do we find the key to unlock our most free and authentic voice? How do we best communicate our needs and desires? How can we be heard?

This workshop will guide you on a journey of self discovery, utilizing the power of change facilitated by the fifth chakra. With specific attention to singing, sound and spontaneous chant, you will learn how to use breath and bodywork to find more freedom in the sound of your voice as well as unravel muscular tension within the throat that inhibits sound. Seed sounds and toning will be used and collectively we will create spontaneous songs with the intention of allowing more freedom into our lives.

Each participant will walk away with a profound understanding of what it is to be heard and a new song in their heart.

  • Google Calendar ICS

This gathering is open to anyone with a desire to sing and a song in their heart. 

NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY and ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME!

You can think about The CIRCLE as a jam session or drum circle for the voice. Different from our other gathering Open SING, this gathering emphasizes work as collective. Participants are led into improvised singing circles by leaders who spontaneously create sung patterns that are then given to various groups. Once voices are singing in tandem, creating a kind of orchestra, the leader may then step outside of the circle, giving others an opportunity to lead or solo if they so choose. Warm ups will help the group get going and exercises may be introduced along the way to expand the experience.

All you have to do is show up and sing! You are guaranteed to walk away with a smile on your face and find yourself apart of a generous and safe community.

(There is no pressure to do anything solo, although it is certainly encouraged as this is a space to explore, enjoy, and grow.)

What happens during a Sound Experience?

Typically a Sound Experience begins with participants lying down or finding a comfortable seated position, sometimes with a mat, blanket and eye mask. After a short guided meditation, sounds are slowly introduced and layered in succession, creating an ever-changing sonic landscape. Participants often find themselves move into a deep state of relaxation, self-exploration and discovery, stimulating alpha and theta brain waves.

Like a Sound Bath or Sound Journey, this is an opportunity for extended rest (Savasana) while intentionally using the ancient medicine of sound to guide meditation and invite deep restoration and change.

Why sound?

Sound has been used for thousands of years as an aid in healing. Sound Experiences, journeys and baths create a container for participants to encourage personal vibrational change in the subtle and physical bodies. As the physical body is 60 percent water, humans are vibratory beings and incredible transmitters for sound. In these experiences participants utilize vibration and a process called entrainment to transform their emotional and physical landscape. The experience of entraining, or ’syncing up’ to healing instruments can slow heart rates and respiratory rates, leading participants into a restful and peaceful state, conducive for healing. Participants leaving with a deep sense of calm and rest.

What should I bring to the Sound Experience?

Some yoga mats, blankets and mediation cushions will be provided. Feel free to bring a blanket, pillow, eye mask or anything that would help you foster a sense of deep relaxation and rest.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

As we are located downtown, there is ample parking but at somewhat of a stiff cost. Please plan accordingly. Public transportation is ample and availble around the studio.

What's the refund policy?

You may receive a refund for your ticket up to one day prior to the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No! Your name will be sufficient.

Unlocking Visuddha: Find Your Authentic Voice Through Sound and Song (Sat Nam Yoga, Chicago)

IMG_3158.jpg

Visuddha or the throat chakra is our channel for communication, self-expression and creative identity. When the fifth chakra is open, we can easily express emotions, needs and self-identity. It is the medium through which our voice contributes and connects to the vibrational pull of the universe and dances in it’s rhythm. It’s power is paramount for personal change and growth. Any sort of block in the fifth chakra can cause stifling feelings of being silenced, misunderstood and lonely, resulting in disconnectedness from ourselves and each other.

So what tools can we access to keep this channel open?
How do we unlock our most free and authentic voice?
How can we make our truest selves heard?

This workshop will guide you through an ancient singing tradition of self-discovery and change by unlocking the power of your voice through the fifth chakra. With specific attention to the sound of our voices, improvised singing, and spontaneous chant, you will learn how to use breath, body and sound to find more freedom in your voice. You will also be aided in unraveling muscular tension within the throat that inhibits your ability to communicate and make sound. Through intentional toning, chant and singing we will create spontaneous songs that will help us find more freedom in our voices and lives. Each participant will walk away with a new song in their heart and a profound understanding of what it is to be truly heard.

Singer, improviser and Somatic Voicework(TM) teacher, Davin Youngs is passionate about utilizing singing and sound to facilitate healing with individuals and groups. He has spent thousands of hours with individuals and groups helping them explore and find their voice as an instrument and vehicle for change. He has worked with companies and organizations like Coca-cola, Google and Chicago Public Schools, leading them into improvised singing experiences and has worked individually with prominent singers and performers in the music industry, stage and film.
