Tom Todoroff Acting Master Class

Calling all Actors, Directors and Performers!

On Thursday November 9th, come experience the incredible work Tom Todoroff does with actors worldwide and at his Conservatory in New York City. Tom Todoroff is a Director / Producer / Acting Coach whose clients include Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Sasha Alexander, Tony Goldwyn, Allison Janney, Sienna Miller and many more!

Come see why Liam Neeson says “Tom’s care, sensitivity and insight are second to none” and Samuel L. Jackson says “Todoroff is the best. Look no further…all you need is T.T.”

What’s a Master Class?

The Master Class gives you first hand experience of the way Tom coaches and directs actors. You will observe how this powerful work renders overwhelming and immediate transformations!

In this class, instruction is done by way of demonstration. So attendees may volunteer to perform a 1-2 minute monologue and receive personalized coaching in front of the group!

Attendees are also welcome to observe only, if preferred.

All attendees will learn to transform nervousness into intense excitement, be expressive rather than impressive, strengthen and find their true inner voice, and think like a producer. Walk away with a deeper understanding of the art, the business and the spirituality of acting.

Please note: While this event is targeted to actors seeking in-depth professional training in acting for theater, film and television, we encourage actors, directors and performers of all levels and disciplines to attend this event. The information provided is applicable to all walks of life!

HOW TO PREPARE?
We highly recommend all attendees thoroughly review www.tomtodoroff.com and www.tomtodoroff.com/conservatory prior to attending the class and make a list of questions about any aspect of acting you wish to ask during the Q & A at the end of the class.

WHAT TO BRING? Materials for note-taking!

Finding Freedom: An Introductory Workshop To Healing Your Emotional Eating

We’re done with the negative self talk, right? The “starting fresh on Monday”, the constant vicious cycle of failed diets and using food to mask the intensity and discomfort of emotions through emotional eating.

What if we were able to get to the root of what’s triggering your behaviours, and ultimately repair your relationship with food, your body and yourself?

In our Finding Freedom workshop, we are setting out to help you do just that through the act of connecting, sharing, expressing, releasing and celebrating. In this 4 hour workshop, you can expect to kick start the journey to repairing your relationship with food and regaining your mental clarity, alongside a group of 20 like-minded women to ultimately craft a supportive, uplifting and safe environment. This includes diving into our emotional vulnerabilities, peeking into our personal histories with food, and leaning into a healing relationship with our bodies and minds..

Through the use of clinically informed therapeutic interventions and foundational knowledge in nutrition, the Finding Freedom Workshop is designed to support you in gaining self awareness, promoting an understanding of the healing benefits of food, and how to cope with triggers and emotions that create discomfort and may lead to emotional eating, disordered eating or contribute to a complex relationship with food.

This approach to enhancing your mental wellness and health will include risk taking, connecting and, yes – celebrating!

Our Special Guest, Allie Sommerville, Culinary Holistic Nutritionist, will be leading participants through a fun cooking demonstration aimed towards restoring our love in the kitchen, and fueling us with nutrient dense foods that promote optimal mood, including her Decadent Guilt-Free Chocolate Sauce, Raw Gut-Healing Kimchi Collard Wraps and a Nourishing Golden Milk.
