An important element of the seminar is vocal harmonics, or overtone singing. This traditional singing style from Tuva, Mongolia, creates a double sound in the voice: above the fundamental note a very high whistle-like melody appears.

In the workshops we talk about many aspects of yoga, union, balancing all aspects of life, which usually in yoga classes can not be addressed because of the time needed to develop positions, breathing practices and so on.
One of these aspects is the voice, the free expression of emotions through the singing of vowels and natural sounds that are born of themselves, without our control. We study how to let go of our need for control, to have trust and faith that what is there is (more than) enough.
Focusing on body posture and breathing techniques that sustain our sound, we simultaneously work on releasing our tensions.
Another aspect is how to be authentic, true and sincere, acquiring, slowly, a benevolent compassion for ourselves and others, a sensitivity beyond our senses, courage, striving to keep up a good mood and light thoughts, and in general be a bit more happy every day!
Hoping to meet you and listen to us singing together in Amsterdam, with love from Igor and Arianna
