SONG SALON: Lotus Portal

Friday, July 21, 2017  //  6:30 to 9 pm

Giggling Lotus Yoga, 
Dogpatch SF // 

Salon: A gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. (Wikipedia)

My initial goal with SONG SALON was to create an informal, fun, safe space for you to let go of your stage jitters, and get a little feedback from your peers on songs you’re currently working on in your sessions with me (covers and originals are both welcome). It’s much more relaxed than a nail-biting open mic, yet you’re still putting yourselves and your voices out there, which is part of the process of releasing anxiety around performance. Whether you’ve been onstage a lot or this is your first toe-dip into the water, we can all learn from one another. Anyone willing to share is encouraged to join. I love to connect my clients with each other, as no one understands the joys and challenges of vocal development the way you all do!

I now bring you SONG SALON: Lotus Portal, an evolution of the original form, in conjunction with the wisdom of yoga! My wonderful yoga teacher (and owner of Giggling Lotus Yoga) Mimi Moncier will co-faciliate this with me! Here, we will explore the relationship between body, voice and spirit.

SONG SALON: Lotus Portal combines an intimate open mic setting with yoga, breathwork and meditation. This magic collision of somatic modalities allows each artist to break through anxieties around live performance and creative expression using movement and ritual.

-Movement, breathwork and meditation to open the portal to expression/vulnerability

-A safe, candlelit space to cultivate your own anxiety alleviating ritual around performance

-Perform one song of your choosing (Songs do not need to be “stage ready”. These are works in progress. Imperfection is encouraged.)

-Receive feedback and support in your process through creative discussion with your fellow artists

-Wear comfortable clothing you can move in freely. Yoga mats available to rent for $2 at the studio.

10 performers maximum // $50 advance registration.
