:::::The Yoga of Sound::::: Expand the abilities of your voice with this workshop, guided by the experience and expertise of Peia Jessyka Luzzi. In this workshop we will learn techniques to harness the natural resonance of the voice, and allow authentic, divine sound to move through us. Working with tools from the ancient Indian alchemy of Raga we will enter a meditative practice know as the Yoga of Sound. We gain deeper understanding of the physical workings of the voice from Vocal Pedagogy (science of the voice) and learn to sing with grace, power, flexibility and ease. Every one of us is gifted with a uniquely beautiful voice, and this workshop will help you open into your full potential. Recommended for singers at all stages on the journey, from very beginner to advanced. Peia is a vocalist, composer and sacred song preserver of traditions from all over the world. She has traveled extensively and studied the rich traditions of Indian Classical Raga, Medieval Chant, Bulgarian and Celtic Folk Music, and songs from the native peoples of North and South America. Peia studied Opera at the New England Conservatory of Music where she gained a deep understanding of the physical inner-workings of the voice, and she performs world-wide. Gifted with a broad, soaring vocal range and bell like tone she sings with depth and beauty, to sooth the heart and set the spirit flying. Accompanying herself with Tambora, Harmonium, Charango and guitar, Peia's music creates an organic sound scape for vibrational healing. www.peiasong.com. $30 in advance and $35 drop-in, registration and more information at www.MandalaYogaPDX.com.
