Once again the succesful Voice Yoga Retreat.

In Voice Yoga’s dynamic group process, students go beyond their own habits and expectations. Often, something larger than ourselves emerges: a flow of hidden creative potential. We work with all kinds of sounds without meaning, without emphasizing a beautiful voice. They help us to get beyond common subject-object and mind-body dualities, and bring our unconscious selves and irrational emotions to the surface. The group process becomes a mirror for the self and allows us to ‘see’ ourselves more clearly, to hear what’s living deep inside.

“this is better than sex” (comment by one student)

Designed and taught by Mark van Tongeren, a Dutch sound explorer with a deep interest in the synergy of arts, sciences and contemplative traditions. Mark has 25 years of experience in theatre, music and dance productions and holds a PhD from Leiden University’s Academy of Creative of Performing Arts.

2020 聲音瑜珈: 盛夏暑光 療癒假期

3天半的時間 / 關於聲音與身體的探索/ —
連結你的身心平衡,以及充滿創造力、活力的存在。

**************************************
聲音瑜珈是個動態的團體過程,學員超越自我的慣性跟期望。比自我更廣大的自己開始甦醒: 那些隱藏著的創造力開始顯現,如河水般開始流動。

透過瑜珈等身體訓練的方式,我們回到自己的身體,並且跟各式各樣的聲音工作,不去強調所謂「美麗的聲音」。聲音幫助我們超越日常的主體-客體跟身-心的二元對立,讓我們的下意識的自我跟理性之外的情感開始浮現。團體工作的過程好像是一面鏡子,讓我們每個人都「看見」自己,聆聽我們心底、靈魂的存在。

【聲音瑜伽是什麼?】
Mark的聲音瑜珈系統/課程,已經經過了8年的課程推廣與實踐。聲音瑜珈是Mark融合他在藝術創造、聲音表現、瑜珈練習、哲思傳統的30年經驗的系統。

聲音瑜珈不是我們所熟知的身心運動,也不是日常常聽的音樂、歌唱。它結合了音樂、聲音、戲劇、哲思跟肢體藝術的領域,是Mark個人經驗的藝術綜合體。Mark特殊的綜合能力及視野使得每個活動都有種特殊的流、律動。身體訓練與難忘(但無法被重複的)音樂創造結合、呼吸練習轉化成為接觸即興、聲音即興演化為類劇場表演。

不管你是音樂家、瑜珈老師、舞者、演員,或是對透過探索聲音、身體以及心靈之關聯以追尋自我成長的人, 我們相信療癒假期會是個讓你充電的好機會。

用聲音瑜珈來找到自己的力量吧!

【對象】
任何人都可以參加,不限瑜珈經驗或音樂訓練。發出聲音是種找出動作跟聲音, 聲音音高跟身體震動之間連結的練習,而不是廣義上的瑜珈。課程的重點不是瑜珈練習,而是發出聲音,感覺音調跟身體的震動。我們希望營造包容並接納差異的工作氛圍。我們會確保不同肢體程度、心理階段、音樂訓練以及正在發展身心靈各面向的學員可以在安全,全然被支持的環境下成長並探索。我們會盡其所能來帶領每個獨特的學員。而如果有些練習對你來說太挑戰了,你可以選擇作為觀察者,或是選擇以另一個形式來參與。

**************************************
VOICE YOGA SUMMER RETREAT
**************************************

Saturday August 22 10 AM until Tuesday 25 2 PM
Three and a half days of intense explorations of voice and movement for body-mind balance and creative, vibrant well-being.

**************************************

In Voice Yoga’s dynamic group process, you go beyond your habits and expectations. Something larger than yourself emerges: a flow of hidden creative potential.

Grounded in physical exercise such as yoga, we work with all kinds of sounds without meaning, without emphasizing a beautiful voice. They help us to get beyond common subject-object and mind-body dualities, and bring our unconscious selves and irrational emotions to the surface. The group process becomes a mirror for the self and allows us to ‘see’ ourselves more clearly, to hear what’s living deep inside.

BACKGROUNDS
Mark’s Voice Yoga runs for over 8 years and brings together three decades of creative, vocal expression, yogic discipline and contemplative traditions.
Voice Yoga is neither yoga as you see all around you, or music as you hear it every day. It is a personal, artistic synthesis of a wide range of musical, resonant, theatrical, contemplative and physical arts. What binds them together is Mark’s unique synthesis and his vision to create a strong sense of flow, no matter what the activity is. Serious workouts smoothly blend with unforgettable (and unrepeatable!) musical creations, deep breath work morphs into contact improv and vocal exercises into absurdistic theatre.

This retreat will give you a big boost, whether you are a musician, dancer, yoga teacher, actor, or just interested in working on your personal growth through the connections between sound, body and mind. No problem if you’ve never done yoga before!

VOICE YOGA SUMMER RETREAT: FOR WHOM?
Anyone can attend, no experience with yoga or music is necessary. Making sounds and learning about the connections between sound and movement, tones and physical vibrations, and not yoga per se, are the main purpose of this retreat. We are working to create an atmosphere of inclusion and acceptance. We make sure people of different levels of physical, mental, musical and other development feel supported and encouraged to grow and explore. We do our best to accommodate the program to the different levels of the participants and let you decide to skip or tone down certain exercises when you feel they are too demanding.

DATES & TIMES
We start Saturday August 22 at 9 AM and suggest you arrive the evening before.
We finish after lunch on Tuesday 25th, around 1:30 PM.

This is the first time we do this in high Summer and we might adapt the program a bit to accommodate to the needs and energies of the group – and to the weather.

Day 1:
9:00-12:00 introduction to the program. Light exercising, breathing exercises start moving toning, improvising. Deep sleep session included!
12:00-15:30 lunch & siësta
15:30-18:30 Guided movement and sound practices, walking meditations, improvisations and more.
18:30-20:00 diner & rest
20:00-21:30 evening program: active sound meditation.

Day 2, 3, 4 (half day):
9:00-12:00 Slow meditative warm up, mild to vigorous exercising, toning, noise making. Once again: restorative (half-)sleep/dream.
12:00-15:30 lunch & siësta
15:30-18:30 Guided movement and sound practices, walking meditations, improvisations and more.
18:30-20:00 diner & rest
20:00-21:30 Moongazing. Sound searching. Mark’s concert. Yours?! Ours!
Day 2, 3, 4: optional: Early morning yoga sessions: 7-8 AM. For those who rise early anyway or those who would like to get the most out of this retreat of active relaxation, this session of yoga-only is the best start of the day. (we suggest you discuss the option of bringing your breakfast along with your b’n’b host unless you stay in walking distance from our site).

PLACE
We hold our sessions in Shufang’s Energy Healing, a gorgeous new yoga studio in Dulan, Taidong, isolated from nearby properties so we can make any sound we need to make. The studio has all utilities we need and is fully air-conditioned of course. There is a big lawn outside for musical workouts in fresh air, giant rocks to repose, and a few shady places.
Have a look here!:

TESTIMONIALS
“I felt many sounds inside me first time and I felt there is an inner space inside my body. That was an very powerful experience for me. The body wasn’t what I knew before. I felt peace when you sang… I do have a lot of fun when you want us imitate your voice… Every time when we make sounds together I feel I am decomposing and putting every part of me in one again. ”
