Meet Your Voice
Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach, yoga teacher and “Eat Here Now” author Britta Gudmunson, aka Britta GreenViolet, has long been using song to cultivate healing, confidence, and connection. She’s a song leader and co-founder of the inCourage Chorus, the low-stress, joy-filled non-audition community choir that has iterations at Yoga Soup and the Somatic Sanctuary in Ojai. So when she says that holding an online voice workshop makes sense during the coronavirus crisis, she’s not doing something akin to a string quartet playing “Nearer My God to Thee” on the deck of the sinking Titanic. Indeed, she says, vocalizing can serve as an antidote to anxiety.
“Singing is one of the best prescriptions I know of to boost your confidence, calm your nervous system, unblock your creativity, deepen your connection to the essence of life itself and to the life force in your own body,” she says on the invitation to join Meet Your Voice, which has two separate classes, 5 pm this Thursday, March 26, and 10 am on Friday, March 27. Participants will learn two simple exercises to ease into the foundations of singing and to start befriending your voice in a non-scary, non-judgmental environment; discover the awesome power of your singing voice to heal emotional, mental, and physical wounds, making you a happier, healthier human, from the inside out; and learn how singing can seriously uplevel your confidence and creativity, even if you think you’re a bad singer.

Britta is also regularly posting on Facebook and Instagram and creating Facebook Live videos daily at www.facebook.com/britta.gudmunson. And the Ojai version of the inCourage Chorus is still meeting, albeit virtually, from 7-8:30 pm on Tuesday evenings. Single drop-in sessions are available on Zoom.
