Sound & Body Retreat: inside & out
Lamberts Cove Inn ~ Martha’s Vineyard May 29 – June 1, 2020
Lamberts Cove Inn ~ Martha’s Vineyard May 29 – June 1, 2020
Ilana Davidson is a four-time Grammy award winning classical singer, respected vocal teacher, inspiring yoga instructor and wellness consultant.
In 1997, long before she was a highly acclaimed soprano, Ilana was preparing for her debut with a major opera house in Germany. She was dealing with the familiar anxiety and fears that often come with high profile performance pressure. Fortunately, it was during that trip that Ilana discovered a “cure” to help calm her nerves and overcome performance anxiety: yoga and meditation in addition to cultivating physical power to gain optimal mental and emotional health.
Over the years, Ilana has been passionate about cultivating a life-music-business and spirituality balance. She loves working with others to help them create lives through a place of abundance and power; be it vocally, physically, through physical health or even skin.
In parallel with her lifelong passion for singing, Ilana has always been a devotee of excellence in aromatherapy & healthy skincare.
Sound & Body Retreat: Inside & Out
Today, Ilana has combined her passion and knowledge to create an amazing new retreat experience that incorporates a unique blend of body & skin care, voice, yoga, and mindfulness training to empower women to be more successful, healthier, and happier in all aspects of life.
Ilana’s authentic personality and friendly approach guides us to discover our own “teacher within”. We’ll learn how to utilize these innovative tools and techniques to cultivate our powerful, new body-mind-voice connection.
When it’s time to go home, we’ll be able to calmly and powerfully communicate, be more aware of our own expressive nature, have a renewed sense of freedom and joy, understand how to cultivate a healthier lifestyle, and of course, be stronger and more flexible (literally AND figuratively), and overall, be Glowing from the Inside & Out!
🟣"Finding Your Authentic True Voice" ~ Vocal Empowerment
In these workshops, we’ll learn about vocal health, and techniques to increase vocal stamina and voice strength. Ilana is the leading world expert in VBT (Vocal Behavior Training) which is an exclusive methodology which isolates and strengthens the actual vocal muscles.
Our voice can be the “unsung hero” (pun intended) in creating more success and happiness in our career and personal lives. Our voice and the way we use it can help us in meetings, public speaking, presentations, and using our voice in our daily personal lives.
The function of the 5th chakra is driven by the principle of expression and communication. We will learn tools on how to speak truth to power. These skills can greatly impact our success in business, interpersonal relationships, self healing and awareness.
And, of course, with Ilana and special guest musicians to accompany her on the keyboard, we’ll also have the opportunity to sing!
🟣Joyous Yoga Class
Ilana shares her joyous form of yoga practice with a unique perspective developed as a singer with a focus on the importance of our breath and opening our hearts.
Her classes are based on Hatha yoga, and include Flow, Gentle Yin, and Yoga Nidra - with all designed to create deep connection between our voice-mind-body, providing a sense of receptivity, strength, calm, and overall peace.
🟣Body & Skin Care Workshops
Ilana offers an interrelated series of workshops designed to help increase overall wellness:
🔸Nutrition Workshop: 30 Days to Healthy Living
This workshop is designed to help increase our health and vitality by providing straightforward information to develop an understanding of the connection of food, proper nutrients, digestion, absorption, and common, yet often unknown, food addictions. It provides tips and techniques to help us better manage the process by not dieting, and instead, change our patterns. We’ll also review an example of a program launched in 2011 by Arbonne International.
🔸Skincare Workshop: 30 Days to Healthy Skin
Ilana will teach us about skin health with a focus on vegan plant-based skincare for all ages and all types of skin. She’ll focus on key connections between skin health and our overall health, for example, how proper skincare affects the endocrine system and major organs, and why gut health is essential for healthy skin. In addition, we will gain important information on how to avoid toxic ingredients. We’ll leave this session with a new understanding that skin care is not only for looking good, it’s for feeling good and increasing an overall level of health.
Ilana will also guide us in Face Yoga sessions to help us get the smooth, lifted results we all desire. This includes facial exercises, massage, acupressure, relaxation, well-being exercise.
