My workshops are a creative safe space in which to work with the mind-body approach to expressing the voice. My work integrates many ways to explore verbal and non-verbal communication through the physical body, making movement and working with the breath to release vocal improvised sound. This has been a consistent focus of my workshops over many years. By improvising with the voice in this way, tensions and holding patterns in the body can be liberated. The mind is rested and freed up and a space opens for new ways to express our individual unique way of being.

Next workshop Saturday, 7th August 10.00am to 4.30pm

Being in the body-sound bridge: a workshop in body, movement, breath, sound

Facilitated by Anne L Ryan, sound and body psychotherapist

This workshop is a creative safe space to explore the body in movement with vocal sound. By improvising with the body-sound connection, tensions and holding patterns in the body ease, and the mind becomes rested.

Being with the body, encouraging slow movement, and focusing gently on the breath, the body becomes relaxed. Taking time to tune to your own rhythm, the body’s system slows into moving stillness. From a deep quiet space, we tune to the impulse to make sound. Working from this soft space, gently we begin to resonate the sound of our own emotional healing bridge.

When this is repeated over time, the body is replenished and revivified. It opens a space for the expression of our individual body-sound and our unique way of being.
