Yoga-Sing Class is Friday mornings 10:30am to noon at The Labyrinth behind St. Paul’s Anglican Church in the West End, downtown at 1140 Jervis Street.
At that time in the morning the bridge is a piece of cake and only takes 15 minutes from the North Shore to get to the church. I decided to offer it downtown because the Labyrinth is such an amazing room to sing in. Even with only a handful of people the acoustics are huge and the sound vibrations are so penetrating. I can’t wait to sing chants and songs like “Long Time Sun” in this class.

EACH CLASS IS AN OCCASION for us to become awakened to the power of mantra, to fall in love with mantras and experience them in the purest form that we can create. OUR COLLECTIVE INTENTION is to connect with people to share light and love. Chanting in community is very healing and a powerful stress reliever stress. It’s a way for people to connect, relax and find a sense of inner peace. And these states can last for days if not all week long!
ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Sandi has been singing and practicing yoga for over 35 years. She became a voice instructor in 1993 after completing her graduation recital at Capilano University’s Bachelor of Jazz Studies Vocal Performance Program. Since then she has taught hundreds of vocalists and become a contemporary vocal technique aficionado! Her awareness of subtle body energy and her ability to explain “technique” in ways that students understand and can apply themselves has earned her a long standing reputation as a teacher who produces results. When taking her yoga teacher training at Langara College in 2013 she recognized the similarities of subtle body energy work in using that awareness to enhance the yoga poses. She always knew yoga was good for singing and vice versa, but after her teacher training she realized that the “technique” of both disciplines were essentially the same thing. In 2016 she combined her passion for yoga and vocal technique at a 5 day adult choir camp and it was a big hit. She did it again this past summer and many of those students asked her to run a class during the year… so, here it is!
Available to anyone & everyone who is interested.
The type of yoga we will do is gentle hatha style. All exercises can be adapted to chair yoga so you don’t have to be “super bendy” to participate!! But if you happen to be a super bendy person and/or already know a lot about yoga and what your body likes in terms of opening and preparing for singing, she welcomes students to go with their own flow. Ultimately teaching students enough yoga repertoire that they can follow their own flow is her goal for all her students.
