The Listening Body: Workshop with Viv Corringham & Jolie Parcher
Mondays, August 17–September 14
Drawing on a range of techniques from Deep Listening™, Yoga, Mindfulness, and more, THE LISTENING BODY workshops aim to find greater physical release, acoustical awareness, environmental connection, and overall playfulness in our breath, body, ears, and voice.
Led by vocalist, composer, and Deep Listening™ Practitioner, Viv Corringham, and Director of Mandala Yoga Center for Healing Arts, Jolie Parcher, each session will uniquely combine exercises in sustained listening, vocal exploration, gentle yoga, and movement.
The workshop is suitable for musicians and non-musicians; yogis and non-yogis alike.
*Workshops will take place in Guild Hall’s Minikes Garden (entrance on the right side of the building). Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mat or blanket, and required face covering.
