Mental Health at VIVA!.gif

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

In response to the significant challenges to our wellness throughout this pandemic, VIVA Singers Toronto is embedding an educational and self-help focus in our programming, which aims to teach choir members music-based self-care.  Health care professionals Kristi Magraw, RMT and Lois Kunkel, RP, will provide instruction and support to staff and choristers throughout the season. This approach emphasizes de-stressing singers’ bodies to promote physical health, mental well-being and improved singing.  Using relaxation techniques and exercises, choristers will be taught how to use their imaginations to keep the body ‘in mind’ and help to release their voices in song.
