Our body is the vehicle for bringing vocal resonance, color, and tone into a whole-body movement experience. Developing our breath awareness through actively moving in space engages our body awareness and strengthens our vocal presence. This builds a dynamic, inspired dialogue between our voice and movement and enhances the development of our creative expression and communication skills.
The intro day focuses on different aspects of VMI Somatic Practice that incorporate Active Breath, embodied anatomy, sensory awareness, movement in space, and hands-on bodywork. Improvisation structures combining voice and movement are introduced to amplify creativity in an ensemble experience.
The workshop is for anyone who is curious and interested to know about the Voice Movement Integration (VMI) Somatic Practice approach and the VMI Somatic Practice Certification Program.
The next VMI Somatic Practice Training Program begins November ’23.
Come join us for the day!

What People Are Saying:
“I felt that this method/way of seeing the connection between body and voice as different “devices”, but interconnected as extensions of the Self, that they can help and follow each other in an infinite dialogue; has been a complete EXPERIENCE. After the workshop, I feel much more connected to my core, connected to my breath, body and voice as tools-souls I can use to explore my creativity.”
~Sofia Alonso Wilson – journalist, writer, and sings~
“Clarity, detail, availability, multi-sensorial feedback, confidence, drive, and efficient energy. I realise that these potential/possibilities are not separated from the body potential which I am able to revise every time I experience VMI Somatic Practice”
~ Patricia Zaretti – Dancer/Educator, Movement Analyst & Qualified VMI Somatic Practitioner ~
