Voice & Speech I


Through the work in Voice & Speech I you are guided to experience your voice as a thought/feeling impulse, infused with breath and vibration, freed out through open channels, and amplified off of the bodies resonators.

Voice & Speech I develops your self-awareness and understanding of relaxation and openness. You begin to visualize and cultivate new images of the inner workings of your body and your breath and experience how release and relaxation lead to the multiplying and strengthening of vibration.

As your voice develops, the focus deepens toward the release of habits causing tension in the jaw, tongue, soft palate and throat. This work encourages a wide open physical channel, clearing the way to a fuller, more direct expression of thought/feeling impulses. With muscles released and the breath relaxed, your vibrations primed for free expression through an open pathway, you increase your vibrations by playing them off of the bony surfaces and resonating cavities of your chest, mouth, and teeth.
