WORKSHOP: Body, Breath, Voice, & Self
Body, Breath, Voice, & Self
exploring wholeness & freedom through yoga & sound
with Stephanie Rooker & Sarah CapuaThe teachings of yoga present a view of ourselves that is both complex and whole; as integrated beings of body, breath, mind, energy, and vibration. Weaving together movement, breath, visualization, sound, and intention, Sarah Capua and Stephanie Rooker pull from the depths of their own rooted lineages of yoga, meditation, and sound healing to illuminate pathways of connection & awareness. Guided by the traditional Pancamaya Model, this workshop offers accessible practices to feel the depth of our inner capacity, as we work toward freedom and wholeness from within.
Saturday July 8th / 4pm-6:30pm / Quiet Mind Studio / $45
Stephanie Rooker is a vocalist, voice teacher, sound healing facilitator, and founder of Voice Journey Sound Center in Brooklyn, NY. Her work combines practices of deep listening, somatic awareness, and mindfulness with healthy voice technique and the fundamental principles of sound healing to awaken the medicine of the voice for creative expression, personal growth, and holistic well-being. She was certified as an Integrative Sound & Music Practitioner by the NY Open Center’s Sound & Music Institute in 2011, under the direction of Don Campbell; and served as assistant coordinator of that program for 4 years afterward, under the direction of Wendy Young. Stephanie also completed a 200-hour certification in Yoga of the Voice, developed by Silvia Nakkach/Vox Mundi Project, in addition to Rhiannon’s 9-month mastery-level vocal improvisation program, All the Way In.
