Dates: January 31, 10am-2pm; 3pm-7pm and February 1, 1pm-7pm
The marriage of Hatha Yoga and Linklater Voice work has never felt so good! Come spend the weekend with Lydia Mackay, Actress,Theatre Professor, and Yoga Teacher, for a deepening of the stretch and a release of the voice. We will explore the basics of yoga, breath connection, and a freeing of the natural voice; so bring a mat or a towel, a willingness to make strange sounds, a piece of text (dramatic, poetic, or presentational speech), an open heart, and an attitude of fun. Whether you are an actor or a business person, our goal is to get you more in touch with your authentic physical and vocal self, to gain self confidence and strengthen our levels of communication.
