Soundsurfing: Embody Your Voice & Free Your Range

Sunday February 9th 1:00PM-3:00PM

Embody Your Voice and Free your Range with Soundsurfing™

Do you long to express yourself fully? Do you want to find your voice in the world?

Soundsurfing™ is an embodied voice practice designed to free your voice and empower you to use it. This workshop provides a safe and playful space, guiding you through a simple sequence of sound and movement exercises. It’s a chance to experiment and discover how you sound when you are given full permission to playfully explore your own voice.

No singing background is required and there are no wrong notes. No matter what level of comfort you have with your voice, there is a place for you in this workshop. Kelly and Robyn are highly trained facilitators and can meet you where you are.

Kelly’s bio:

Raised in Northern California, Kelly Vogel learned to sing around campfires, in church choirs, and within the loving swell of gospel groups. She found her niche in the San Francisco singer-songwriter scene and has recorded 4 independently-produced albums. She also holds an MA in English Literature and has been teaching English Composition and Literature at the college level for 20 years, helping students find their voice in the classroom and through the written word.

Kelly has also experienced intense anxiety throughout her adult life, feeling a constant tension between reclusiveness and a desire for greater public expression. This tension helped fuel the development of Soundsurfing, which has helped her move from a place of holding back to a place of inspiration. She has found renewed confidence by listening to the nuances of her own voice, in all its whispered softness, tentativeness, boldness, and strength. Her desire is to share Soundsurfing so that others can experience this practice as a doorway to creative expression and expansiveness.

You can see her sing locally in the vocal/bass duo, Shadows & Roots.

Robyn’s bio:

From age 3 until college, Robyn danced. Robyn spent hundreds of hours training in a discipline that was quiet and often quite controlled. Then, Robyn went to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for experimental theater and she was introduced, for the first time, to her voice. She says, “It was incredibly scary for me to be so open, honest and raw. I came up against intense resistance.” Robyn’s teachers, the highly acclaimed Lisa Sokolov and Richard Armstrong, offered her the space and support that eventually helped her to not only free her voice, but to free the fear that had kept her from fully expressing herself. Releasing her voice has become the main engine of her growth.

Working with the voice led Robyn to Kundalini Yoga which uses mantra and sound as the foundation of the practice. In 2007, Robyn became a Kundalini Yoga teacher and eventually went back to NYU to get her Masters in Social Work.

Now, when Robyn isn’t Soundsurfing she uses her communication and psychology background building brand culture alignment within organizations.
