Event description

Description

Combining Forms – Fitzmaurice Voice work and Itcush Method

Itcush Method : Based on the Mitzvah Technique the Itcush Method is a set of exercises and self care techniques that activate principles of dynamic alignment. Working on the floor, chair and standing the student learns how to achieve released neutral alignment; releasing tension and relieving pain.

Fitzmaurice Voicework® : a somatic approach to voice – uses yoga asana and gentle released breath flow to connect psyche and soma. This gentle grounded interplay between released body, breath and sound creates a safe and innovative way to explore voice and movement.

Ashley and Traci have been involved in comparing and contrasting the forms of Itcush Method and Fitzmaurice Voice work to achieve optimal physical functioning, released breath and easeful speaking. Together they will bring a combination of breath, sound, and movement used to align the skeleton, release the diaphragm, and activate creativity and play, leaving the participant relaxed and inspired.

This class is co-taught and is open to all levels and abilities but may have special interest to artists, actors, dancers, public speakers, therapists, and those looking for alternative rehabilitation practices. Please wear layered clothing and come prepared to move and use the voice.
