TAKE A BREATH! AN ONLINE WORKSHOP WITH HOLLY HOLSINGER | Saturday, June 6

Join Holly Holsinger as she guides you through a series of relaxation techniques and exercises designed to help you let go of physical tension and create more space for breath, release, and relief. Based in Fitzmaurice Voicework, these methods promote wellness in both performers and non-performers alike. The workshop will focus on breath, but you may be asked to make sound as part of the work on release (participants will be muted for most of the session). Click here for more information.
