I think about voice work as a release of impeding tension and a release of your natural tone in connection with your breath and body. So many people find themselves unable to express what needs to be said for myriad reasons. When they begin to open their mouths something shuts down or constricts and what comes to the surface feels tight or alien.
When clients for voice first come to study with me, they have a sense that how they sound and how it feels to express doesn’t feel true to them and how they want to be in the world.
Through breathing, alignment and tone placement we can set up the instrument to make more resonant sound. We also use Somatic Experiencing and other methods to go deeper into what might be the fundamental cause of tension or shut down.
