Rosie delves into how simple yoga techniques can support singers in the studio. This session looks at the parallels between yoga and singing, exploring the benefits and connections between the two, the outcome being embodied voicework. We explore some yoga postures and techniques that may help singers with common issues such as breath support, alignment, nerves or tension. The session will give you some tools and new approaches to your own singing practice or work with your students, considering the voice as a whole instrument. There will also be a practical element where we try some of these postures and techniques, so hopefully, you will leave feeling released and ready for the rest of the day!
