Wake-up and Sing Carmarthenshire!


Working with song, breath, movement and play my intention is to create a day of fun, relaxation and connection.



Singing

Our ancestors understood what many of us have forgotten. That, just like sleeping and eating, singing is an essential part of being human. In todays stressful world singing with others can help us reconnect with all that it means to be whole hearted and fully alive.

With 18 years experience of teaching choirs and singing groups, I understand that for some a whole day of singing can be tiring, mentally, physically and of course vocally. This is why I combine singing with other activities, gentle movement with awareness, fun with sound and improvisation and the opportunity to just listen. This not only makes the day easier, it also makes the singing better! Helping you to realise that you can't get it wrong and to sing with even more freedom.

No previous singing experience is needed - singing in the oral tradition is for everyone!



Movement / Stillness

Since completing my 4 year training in The Feldenkrais Method® in 2016 I like to bring Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® work into my longer singing events - any time that I feel there is enough time and that the group will benefit from a pause from singing, resting the voice and developing a more inward awareness. Singing together connects us with each other. Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement connects us with ourselves. It's a perfect combination. In one day workshops I do mini ATM (Awareness Through Movement) lessons that last between 5 and 15 minutes - it's a great way to experience The Feldenkrais Method and get a taste of what it's all about.

Venue

Nestled in the Carmarthenshire countryside, The Ceridwen Centre is a beautiful venue catering for all kinds of events including open mic nights, craft workshops, weekend retreats and weddings.



Workshop Space

We will be using The Old Dairy communal space for the singing. With oak floor, high ceiling and lots of natural light the space feels made for singing.

It's super cozy and warm too with underfloor heating and floor cushions and rugs (there are also plenty of chairs if sitting on the floor isn't your thing!)

Food

Light or more substantial lunches can be purchased from the on site cafe. It's vegetarian, healthy and delicious. Ingredients are fresh from the onsite garden or local suppliers. Special diets such as vegan or gluten free can be catered for with notice.
