The Full Story






 Relax             Restore             Rejuvenate


We welcome you to the Autumn Vibe Retreat in the beautiful county of Derbyshire where we will spend a day immersing in relaxing vocal yoga, restorative mindful practices and rejuvenating voice workshops with a playful and sensitive approach led by Voice Coach and Yoga Teacher Marianne Samuels.


We will meet in the delightful space of The Elephant Rooms where you will spend the day immersing in mind, body and voice sessions to find interconnectedness essential to all performers and speakers. The sessions are focussed on releasing the voice and exploring your vocal potential.  In order to do this we must free the body of tensions and clear the mind of clutter hence the holistic approach. Also included in the day is a delicious lunch made by a local caterers mindful of health and nutrition. 


Schedule of the Day:
