Vocal Awakenings is a Wednesday Morning Vocal Warm Up practice. Think of it as like yoga, but for the voice.
We begin with a reflective/meditative internal focus: a chance to sit with the inward turning mind of the night before gently waking the voice and, through using the voice, the body. Much of the early vocal awakening will be humming and other gentle warm up activities, leading into a playful exploration of our own voices, then slowly moving towards interacting vocally with each other. We finish singing a couple of songs together, and leave refreshed and ready for whatever the day brings. Light refreshment available before or after the session (depending on which time you attend).
Earlybirds Weds 7-8am (8.30 if you stay for chai and chat)
Morning is a transitional time, as we move from the world of dreams to waking life. In life's busy-ness this transition is often abrupt. Earlybirds honours the sleepiness of the morning, making time to be present to our internal space before gently using our voices to fully awaken to the day ahead. After some quiet time, vocalising starts gently, as an exploration of sound resonating in our own bodies. We gradually allow our awareness to expand and finish with a song or two together, alert and ready for the day.
Finish with chai and a chat if you have time

Awaken and Sing 9-10.30 am (arrive at 8.30 for a chai and chat)
Like "Earlybirds" but, as it is later in the morning, we will move a little more quickly from the internal focus toward shared musical experiences.
