A Workshop Focused on Loosening
JAW and TONGUE Tensions
Do you suffer from jaw or tongue tension (TMJ disorders)?
Are you interested in vocal exploration?
Are you curious about the connection between the voice and the body?
✨ Join us ✨
This workshop is based on my research study and will explore the healing impact that specific holistic movements have on articulatory muscles and how this connection can release unwanted and/or habitual jaw and tongue tensions.
We will start with physical and vocal warm-ups which will be accompanied by jaw and tongue exercises, followed up with a few specific yoga poses that, later on, will be accompanied by vocal exercises. The workshop will include warm-ups, gentle stretches, guided meditation, relaxation, self-touch, specific yoga poses and vocal/jaw/tongue exercises. Every participant will have an opportunity to restore balance in the body, allow authentic sound to move through the body, explore the vocal range, learn new breathing exercises and release jaw and tongue tensions.
✨ ALL WELCOME ✨
"Preliminary data from Lloyd et al. (2017) confirms that the vocal yoga program reduced participants’ vocal burden and dysphonia symptoms. Moliterno (2008) adds when ‘the physical instrument is free and balanced, communication is clear, unguarded, and untainted by physical or emotional distractions’ (p.52)."
