Stay tuned for upcoming schedules

New in Frome - at Room Frome  

If you find it hard to ...

A six week course teaching meditative vocal 
 practices to become more fully embodied & expressed 
 

Sound & Soma is a unique course that blends voice work with meditative vocal practices. It not only teaches you how to use your voice to open your breath, but provides a physical, possibly even mystical, experience into your sense of Self that leads to greater confidence, agency and power. 

Your tone of voice, reflects how you feel, it's a tool that connects to your Soul, shifts your state of being and regulates your nervous system. Essentially Sound & Soma is a vocal embodiment practice that uses your voice as a catalyst to connect to deeper layers within the Self allowing more Soul Essence to course through your being as the throat chakra opens. As a consequence more peace, understanding, and lucidity are experienced.  

These playful practice sessions will give you the opportunity to explore the rejuvenating capacity of your own voice while connecting to each other through various exercises using sound. The sessions provide a space for physical self exploration that replenishes you from the inside out, while cultivating deeper embodiment. Plenty of time and space is given to share and integrate your experience.

 

With only a small number of participants in a deeply supportive environment, you'll learn how to use your voice to ...

​​

  • open your breath, so you can breathe more fully & deeply

  • transmute emotions by gently directing sound-waves

  • connect to your sensual essence & the pleasure of making sound

  • reduce severe anxiety and increase confidence

  • release deeply held tension through gentle vibrations

  • open the throat Chakra resulting in increased clarity & lucidity

  • rejuvenate and replenish depleted energy levels

  • tap into your subtle energy field

What people are saying... 

I felt much, much better after each session. Seeing the quick positive effects, I was eager to start practicing everything I learned.

It was fun and exhilarating to try to express myself without holding back.

I so appreciate how you hold the space at Sound & Soma. There's ease and flow and also homour and cheeckiness. I really get the sense that you have your eyes on the arc of the experience and your finger on the pulse, by the time we end it always feels complete. 

I learned that a louder volume doesn't necessarily imply straining the vocal cords. 

It's actually possible to be louder and have a fuller voice by getting more of my body involved in producing the sound.

Somatic Voice Work makes your body release a powerful cocktail of feel good hormones. The four most obvious ones are …

  • Dopamine - a neurotransmitter that forms an important part of your brain's reward circuit and is associated with pleasurable sensations

  • Oxytocin - also known as the cuddle hormone that promotes bonding, trust and empathy in relationships and generally increases affection

  • Serotonin - a further neurotransmitter that regulates your mood, appetite, sleep and digestion

  • Endorphins - your body’s natural pain reliever that also increases when you engage in working out, eating etc.

 

These hormones are generated through connection, tone of voice and sound waves. By cultivating expression that comes from a genuine, embodied impulse we grow our body’s ability to create these hormones and experience profound states of well-being.

   Your Voice, Seat of Your Soul

Some people say the voice is the seat of the soul, this is because it is deeply connected to the very essence of your being "Your  sense of Self". Yet on a more worldly level, your voice was welded in relationship and is deeply rooted in relatedness. It is influenced and conditioned by the environments that left their imprint and formed your ability to express.

 

Your voice is a unique gateway that holds the key to your spiritual development. It's the point where divine essence is welded into conditioned character. It's in this place that we can experience the flow of expression and the power that lies within it.

 

Your voice is one of the most gentle tools to shift patterns, transform trauma, access personal power induce states of bliss, increase well-being, and to nourish yourself from the inside.

Cordelia was fully present, compassionate and knowledgeable as she gently guided me on a journey of hearing my own voice express just what I needed to move forward. I feel heard, understood and nourished. I highly recommend working with her.

The Fundamental Building Blocks for a Healthy Voice

 

Similar to yoga postures vocal exercises affect your whole being. They develop your respiratory capacity, help you breathe deeply, increase lung volume and strengthen your voice. 

 

During these six weeks we'll explore the following elements...

Sensual Enunciation 

Through sensual enunciation we use sound as a vehicle to connect deeply to our body's internal viscera. These specialized exercises are designed to help you connect to the pleasure inherent in making sound and re-connect to the verbal phase of adolescence where sound was juicy and fun. The focus on combining enunciation with sensuality will give you a deep experience of the self within your body. 

Emotionally Compelling Articulation

Emotionally compelling articulation goes a step further, it infuses your whole voice with emotion, coordinates reflexes in the vocal folds and strengthens the voice as a whole. Similar to a yoga workout, it invigorates the whole body, activates the breath and strengthens your diaphragm which builds resilience. It enables tension to flow where needed, while reducing tension where it is unwanted. 

Releasing Jaw Tension

Relative to size, the masseter muscles are some of the strongest muscles in your body. A huge amount of tension gets held here. Too much tension in this area symbolizes a withholding of expression. By releasing jaw tension you'll experience deep relaxation and a sense of ease flowing into your voice and being. 

The Five Pure Vowel Sounds

Vowel sounds are the feminine element of voice. They give colour, express feeling tone and create atmosphere. You could even talk about Vowel Dimensions. But too much vowel without enough form can lead to feeling depleted, loosing energy and possibly even a sore throat. It ends up being murky, a bit like putting to many colours on a palette which turns the vibrancy of the individual colours into mud.

Similarly, with the vowel sounds, they need to be clear and vibrant like primary colours. Understanding which vowel sounds are good for you personally and how to cultivate them is part of building solid voice foundations. 

Opening the Breath

Most breathing practices focus on the breath and ignore the voice. However breathing to develop vocal potential is different from breathing for purely meditative purposes. When you breathe to vocalize, your breath needs to support sound, as it forms the bases upon which sound waves travel. 

Combining breathing exercises with sound is unique. Itreduces stress, regulates heart rate and builds core strength. It also opens new energy pathways and leaves you feeling nourished and energized.
