When breath becomes a song

 

Breathing is a wonderful and complex bodily automatism that occurs without conscious control. Becoming aware of the mechanisms that regulate our breath and improving its effectiveness, can bring enormous benefits to body and mind.

Because when the breath is translated into sound, it frees our most intimate and magical essence.

The voice is in fact one of the most powerful expressive tools that the human being possesses: it is able to reach the heart of our humanity and, in the song as a whole, of our being a community.

Knowledge of one's physical and vocal characteristics represent an important part of the path that everyone can undertake in self-knowledge.

The workshop

The workshop, which will last three days, is aimed at anyone who wants to strengthen their breathing skills and discover their voice. It is not necessary to have musical or vocal knowledge, but it is enough to have an affinity with music.

Each session lasting about two hours, will take place in the morning and afternoon, and the study will be organized as follows:

Morning

  • Body posture
  • Breathing: Vocal heating with simple collective and individual vocalizations

Afternoon

  • Study of easy muscial pieces

 

 

Outside workshop hours you can choose to relax at the pool, take a walk, simply do nothing or choose one of our optional programme elements:

  • Morning Yoga with focus on breathing
  • Meditation
  • Thai Yoga Massage
  • Excursion to sacred etruscan sites
  • Guided walks

 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is being served on the terrace or inside the villa, prepared with natural, local and healthy ingredients. We cater to any dietary requirements.
