In this session Jennie explores the anatomical relationships throughout the whole body that support optimal breath and vocal mechanics – and explains how to integrate these concepts into dynamic vocalizing. This session will give you a clearer understanding of the myofascial system and kinetic chain that connect foot placement and whole body alignment to voice production. Learn also about optimal breath mechanics and the dual action of muscles for breath and postural control.
