I lost my adult self in a Body of Sound workshop with Alyssa and found the carefree little girl I once was, once upon a time.

What is Body Of Sound


Rhythm is the heartbeat of all life…the internal language that speaks to all of us. Rhythm reveals itself in nature, and we as humans are constantly creating rhythm…when we walk, talk, work, play and interact. However, to refine your expression of rhythm…that takes commitment, precision, and attention.


The voice is the window to your soul. It is not only how we communicate basic needs…it is also the avenue for deeper self expression. The human voice is the most intimate vulnerable form of expression. It is incredibly versatile and has the power to profoundly touch our hearts. Vocalizing together as a group is invigorating and deeply satisfying!


Movement is essential to life. Even in stillness there is subtle movement of breath and energy. Knowing your own body is the pathway to expanding your relationship with the world around you. It requires a willingness to feel and be present. Your body then becomes your subtle guide to every step along your path. You can begin to play it like a finely-tuned instrument.
