Event description


bodyART + VoiceArt = LifeART

Our second unique life changing afternoon workshop.
Saturday 11 November 2.30-5.30pm in Southbank

In our 21st century lives we trudge about a fair bit, bowed down with the weight of the avalanche of our daily to do lists and demands from all quarters.

We would love participants to go away from LifeART with a spring in their step, lighter & brighter of heart after an afternoon of pure & unashamed self love.

With expert guidance through some simple steps, "LifeARTists" will be led to the experience of mindful movement and mindful melody. Inhibitions will melt away as they dare to step into the unknown and discover untapped joys. Buoyed up, they will step back into the world, replenished, calm, centred, positive, changed; with a resonating synergy flowing through the mind and body.

Andrea and Kate have shared over 35 years of friendship and all the joy and sadness, love and loss that comes with lives spent in close association over so many years.
Both have had significant careers, Andrea internationally in classical ballet, music theatre, Stage & Event Management and for the past 10 years as a Personal Trainer, Pilates & more recently bodyART Instructor and Kate has worked in the theatre and as a choral director and voice teacher for over 30 years. Each runs their own business and for 20 years they ran the Brian Stacey Memorial Trust until 2016, drawing together large numbers of people and galvanising action for huge events, producing Stace - The Brian Stacey Story” documentary and of course, the Stacey Award for emerging Australian conductors itself.

The afternoon will comprise:
  • Introduction to LifeART
  • bodyART Session
  • Short refreshment break
  • VoiceArt Session
  • Nourishment & networking

What is bodyART ?

MINDful MOVEment on a Mat and so much more . . .
A barefoot myofacial mat workout that creates a positive holistic synergy between mind, body and soul, as well as improving fitness, strength and mobility. Flowing functional movement with music that creates ambiance, based on the five elements of Chinese Medicine; Earth, Wood, Fire, Metal and Water. A Yin and Yang seamless fusion of body strength and awareness, therapy & yoga inspired exercises, cardio, dance, tai chi, pilates, corework, breathing, stretching and relaxation. Choose the right balance of challenge & nurturing to suit you.

What is VoiceArt ?

VoiceArt has been devised by Kate to promote "Mindful Melody." - A process which starts with Voice Preparation. Strength & control are tapped into through simple exercises & melodies, so that even those who believe themselves unable to sing, quickly realise they actually can! Myth busting abounds!
And for singers with a little more experience, the step by step attention enhances understanding & awareness at a deeper level.
Singing lifts the spirit and engenders the well-being of the singer, no matter their skill level.

Is there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

18 + (or 14 and over if accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian)

What should I wear?

Comfortable exercise gear with easily removable shoes.

What do I need to bring?

Water and a towel.
Mats are provided but you can bring your own mat.

Does it matter that I feel unfit?

Not at all - you choose your level and what you want to do to suit you.

What if I think I am un-cordinated?

No one is un-coordinated - there is simply more opportunity for mind and body to find connection and awareness.

Does it matter that I don't believe I can sing?

Again - this workshop IS for you - no one can't sing. (Really!) If you can speak you CAN sing & you will certainly believe this to be true when you leave with a smile on your face at the end of the afternoon.

Should I eat before I come?

Best not to consume food 60-90 minutes before the workshop.
We will be providing refreshments between and after the sessions.
