These sessions will occur over Zoom on the last Sunday of each month at 11am. Tickets for this session are available each month at $20/session or in a package of six sessions for $100.
Select your session date or package below to get your tickets:
gfire is a professional singer-songwriter, folk-tronica music producer, and voice/piano/folk guitar/songwriting teacher based in Austin, Texas. By incorporating the kundalini yoga and yogic breathing exercises she learned as a kundalini yoga instructor into her singing practice, gfire developed a Yoga for that Voice that allows her students advance their progress in controlling their vocal instruments. Yoga for the Voice provides improvements in health, speaking voice, and helps keep the sinuses free and clear, so that performers have better mastery of their vocal instrument.

>>From our Artistic Director, Debbie Lynn Carriger: When I moved to Austin, Texas, I hired gfire for singing lessons and was sad not to continue my studies with her after I moved away. Many years later, after a rough bout of Covid early in the pandemic, I noticed that gfire was now providing online instruction. Wanting to build up my lung strength I knew that her Yoga for the Breath technique would help me regain my lung capacity and reached out to her. What I didn’t know was that in less than one year, I would be performing an aria in an online recital as one of her students. To go from panic attacks in the middle of the night because my lungs were filling with liquid and I felt like I was drowning to singing an aria – AMAZING! I hope you can join us for these brief centering breath sessions each month. See you there!
