It will be a two and one half hour vocal workshop using elements of Feldenkrais, improvisation with voice, and singing.

Bring a blanket and a few bath towels. 

If you have questions or physical requirements (like not being able to get to the floor and back up easily) please contact me by email with ‘Singing with the Whole Self’ in the subject line:¬†christinegravesottawa@gmail.com
