Open Your Voice ~ Open Your Heart!!
Kavita’s transformational vocal opening workshop!
Through group exercises, movement, songs and lots of connecting and support, Kavita guides participants to unpack energetics that hold us back from singing freely. Through this process we allow for the opening of our own path of vocal expression.
