Meditation Yoga Voice
Meditation Yoga Voice - 1pm - 5pm
Floating Lotus - 169 Main St.
Gloucester, MA
Price: $20

This is a highly interactive workshop guided by two experts in the field of creative self-empowerment. You will be guided on a powerful and highly transformative journey which starts inward with meditation and yoga asana and builds to an outer expression through voice expression and movement. 

Glenn Smith has been leading his "Vocal Voyagers" singing circles for over 10 years, in both California and Massachusetts. 
"I've been playing music for over 30 years - for dance jams, performances, fire circles, etc. I find the most rewarding events for me are ones where everyone is able to add to the creative fire, where the creativity is grounded in community, and where everyone is on a journey of discovery, together. We all carry our voice with us, and it can be an amazing tool for both expression and healing, especially when joined with others."

Julie Upton has been teaching Yoga, Meditation and Buddhist courses in the USA and abroad for over 10-years. She is currently living between India and Nepal taking people on sacred pilgrimages. Julie is passionate about her own journey as well as the process of serving others by taking them deeper into their power and purpose in this life. "What excites me more than anything is watching someone transform right before my eyes. I can see it and feel it when it happens and so can they."

The fee is a sliding scale from $20 to $45
