IMG_1078 copy

The voice is a physical instrument engaging with all of our senses. Moving the breath, feeling the vibration of the sound as a living pulse guiding, informing, and exchanging actively with our movement flow opens gateways of inspiration and creativity.

This workshop is an integrative process combining Active Breath, movement flow, deep body vocal resonance, and ensemble voice/movement improvisation.

Combining In-Person and Online Classes

VMI Somatic Practice combines vocal expression with physical movement to deepen awareness and awaken perception in ways that foster personal change and empower transformation. Developing our body presence through actively using breath and movement informs our sense of awareness in how and what we want to communicate.

Each introductory workshop focuses on different aspects of VMI Somatic Practice that incorporate principles of Active Breath, embodied anatomy, sensory awareness, movement in space, hands-on bodywork, and guided physical re-patterning. Improvisation structures are introduced, combining vocal, physical, visual, temporal, and rhythmic elements to amplify creativity in an ensemble experience.

The workshop awakens a fuller expression of voice through the entire body and stimulates fresh approaches to performance. The practice is effective in developing in the participant an engaged and concentrated whole-body experience of their breath and voice combined with active movement.

The workshops are for anyone interested in improving their health and vitality while becoming more confident in embodying their voice, enhancing their physical and emotional awareness, and creatively feeling a sense of aliveness in a moving and flowing body. 

They are of particular interest to movement practitioners, bodyworkers, educators, massage therapists,  somatic coaches, body-oriented therapists, dancers, singers, actors, coaches, facilitators, and public speakers.

VMI Somatic Practice is an innovative interdisciplinary somatic approach combining Vocal Dance, Voice Movement Integration, and Vital Movement Integration Bodywork. For more than 25 years, the VMI Somatic Practice Educational Program, founded and directed by Patricia Bardi, has been centered in Amsterdam.
