Weekly Self-Care Virtual Sessions

In this membership, you will be a part of weekly ZOOM sessions where you will learn self-care massages, stretches, and functional/restorative movement exercises to help with the vigorous demands placed on the voice. We will delve into numerous modalities including Isometric Contractions, Active Isolated Stretching, Makka Ho, Cranial Self-Care, Skin Rolling, Acupressure, Reflexology, Functional Movement, and Restorative Poses, as well as focusing on releases for the jaw, neck, face, sinus, larynx, shoulders, and pelvis. And…SO MUCH MORE! Every week focuses on a new topic.

Accountability

There are several things that keep us from being able to do in person sessions, especially in our current environment with the Covid-19 pandemic.  I also know how difficult it can be to keep up with self-care on your own. Sometimes, we need accountability partners. That is why I have been working hard to develop a virtual self-care membership!

Bonus Holistic Material

In addition to the weekly virtual ZOOM classes, you will receive access to an ever expanding library of informational videos, and a private Facebook Group to discuss and create a self-caring community.

"Christine Schneider is THE go-to person for bodywork among my students. She combines intricate knowledge, terrific instincts, and a thirst for knowledge that makes her a treasured healer in the NYC performer community. On a personal level, Christine helped me to rehab a nagging shoulder problem in isolation; after two online sessions with her, my injury resolved itself. She is a master, and I count myself lucky to know her as a colleague and friend."

"My virtual massage session with Christine was just the kind of self care needed in this strange new socially distant world. My clenched up jaw feels so much better already!"

"Christine Schneider’s Self Care Workshop was revolutionary for our students at Reinhardt University, and they all think she is a magician! Since implementing her self-care ideas—specifically the breathing and stretching—in the studio, I have seen my students progress rapidly and find more freedom in their singing. It really does seem like magic. I highly recommend this workshop for any group of singers, actors, or other professional voice users!"

Dr. Rebecca Salter

"Having workshops with Christine Schneider drove me to look into my body, my instrument, in analytical ways. The exercises that I’ve been generously taught had a profound effect on me even within a short term period. Right when I tend to call this effect “magic”, Christine would go on to explain the intricacies of human anatomy and physiology which is her passion! Her intimate knowledge of singers allows her to impart valuable knowledge about longevity in professional singing. Overall, I’ve been much impressed by what one person can offer."

"Christine is an exceptionally gifted, compassionate and knowledgeable practitioner and an articulate, passionate teacher. Having experienced the positive impact of Christine’s work on my own singing and overall wellbeing, I was thrilled to arrange a Vocal Self-Care workshop at my private voice studio. Exposing my students to this very important aspect of vocal/body work as an integral part of their vocal training was/is a perfect complement to voice lessons. The material covered in Christine’s workshop is vital to any singer or actor, particularly with the ever-increasing demands of high-stress singing in theatre today. Christine clearly loves her work. She shares important anatomical and physiological information in ways that are meaningful to performers; she translates dry facts into “how this can affect you on stage”, and the heightened attentiveness in the room is palpable. Christine’s warm, encouraging presence and professional demeanor put participants immediately at ease, even as they discovered tense or vulnerable areas of their own vocal anatomy while learning new self-massage techniques. The results of various self-massaging techniques were significant; some results could be felt and/or heard immediately in students' singing that evening in the workshop, and some students reported freedom from jaw and neck tension/pain for up to several days after the workshop. All were delighted in having the new stretches or massages as additions to their warm-ups or daily physical regimens, as well. Christine’s Self-Care workshop is a 'must have' for any curriculum involving training for serious actors and singers. Performers gain invaluable information and self-care tools that can help them both prepare for and sustain careers as professional voice users."

Voice Teacher, SVS

"Christine came and taught a series of self- care workshops to my undergraduate students at UArts. She's an incredibly knowledgable practitioner who is able to break down the complicated anatomy and physiology of the voice and body into meaningful information for the young performer. My students walked away from the workshop with a plethora of tools and tricks to release their own musculature in a healthy and effective way."
