More and more people are discovering yodelling for themselves, and are fascinated by its power, urgency, and naturalness. Alternating between the strong chest and belly tones, and the fine head voice has a liberating and grounding effect on the entire body.
Ingrid Schmoliner, experienced teacher, musician, composer and passionate yodeller, entices you to make your hidden inner spaces vibrate, to consciously perceive them, and to relate them to your surroundings. On the basis of different yodels, we will work on intimacy/ flexibility/resonance and personal expression with the voice.The limited number of participants (max. 8 people) guarantees an intensive encounter with a special type of singing, in a special place.
Since we will also be hiking, please bring good outdoor shoes and weatherproof clothing!
There will not be difficult hikes, but please only register if it is possible for you to walk unassisted on narrow trails.
With Kaspar Nickles, alpine farmer and nature guide, we will discover what the wonderfully wild mountain landscape around Dordolla has to tell us, and let us be inspired by the primeval, in all its nuances.
The website of our hosts Kaspar and Marina offers insights into their farmhouse, where we will not only stay but also enjoy eating regional specialities (many with ingredients from their own organic farm) cooked by the farmer’s wife herself. This will help make this workshop a truly special experience.
If this virtual visit makes you want more of Val Aupa/Dordolla, you can also extend your yodelling weekend before or after (with 10% discount off the standard room prices!).
