Body of Sound approaches creative expression from the inside out, starting with the somatic experience and then shaping it into an aesthetic musical form. Alyssa noticed something missing from our society which seems to be deeply engrained in many cultures: collective singing and dancing as celebration and ritual. The mission of Body of Sound is to develop our relationship with our individual body as an instrument, and to connect with the larger body of community ensemble. Body of Sound inspires a practice that can lend itself to every aspect of your life from authentic daily interactions blossoming into meaningful relationships to caring for your body health and embodying radiant confidence.

WHAT IS A BODY OF SOUND EXPERIENCE...
Rhythm | Voice | Movement The Three Pillars of Body of Sound
Body of Sound is a celebration of the body as our most essential instrument…in life, in play, and in practice. It is a journey into rhythm, voice and movement through structured exercises and improvisation. It is a discovery of freedom and creative expression that lends itself to every aspect of your life. We draw from a variety of modalities such as Body Percussion, Dance, Yoga, Meditation, Contact Improvisation, Circle Song and Chant Practices.
Body of Sound is beneficial for enhancing focus, coordination, balance, communication skills and stress release. Through various exercises and group scores we explore the value of both structure and improvisation to develop deep listening, individual skills, collective creativity and teamwork. When we use our body and voice to access the places within that are longing to be expressed, we are in touch with our authentic self. This ignites truth, inspires clear communication and generates a ‘feeling’ sense of belonging and connection that awakens the whole being and activates transformation. We work together to remember the innate satisfaction of community. Body of Sound is developed for HUMAN BEINGS, all of us as it is based on the most fundamental elements of being human. Therefore this modality is accessible to everyone regardless of experience level. A common belief is that some people are creative while others are not. Body of Sound encourages the belief that creativity is inherent in everyone. Sometimes you just need a little nudge to find the best avenue to apply your creative genius to your life.
Body of Sound is an Artists Dream... it helps musicians become more embodied, dancers to become more musical, singers to enhance their rhythmic skills, and everyone who desires to deepen their capacity to express themeselves through their most essential instrument – your body!! This is playful, fun, transformational, and surprisingly revealing.
