Day 1 – Vocal Potential and Voice Relaxation Sessions
Breath-work, vocal warm-up and vocal development exercises help to develop and free your voice. Learn to give voice-bath relaxation sessions using vowel sounds, overtones and therapeutic percussion.
Day 2 – PramAna (Voice and Movement)
Similar to Tai Chi, this exercise is relaxing as well as balancing for mind, body and emotions.
Day 3 – Vocal Processing Techniques
Specific techniques using the breath, movement, visualisation and voice to help improve health and wellbeing and work with specific conditions such as pain, anxiety and/or emotional release for example.
Day 4 – Transforming Limiting Belief
The Narrative Voicescape process enables you to help people to work with their grief, bereavement, trauma, fears, phobias – anything that holds them back in life. This technique helps people to reframe negative thoughts and behaviours in a new and more positive way.
This course requires you to take part in a community project. Together we will work on our chosen project coordinated and supported by Nicola Kelly, a BAST graduate Mentor with 20 years experience in Community Work specialising in the Arts for Health and Wellbeing. There will be webinars, meetings and templates to support you on the Learning Zone. BAST will collate the final audio files, visuals and data that you’ve gathered individually and create a final project presentation to benefit all.
