Today, we are taking the first step on our journey into breathing for voice work. We will explore how to improve unnecessary patterns in our breathing and why we tend to use more breath than we need. This episode will help you become more aware of the intuitive nature of inhalation, and the importance of breathing rhythm in a resting position.

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

– The benefits of proper breathing

– The most common breathing issues in voice work

– A simple exercise to identify our breathing patterns

– The scientific understanding of our breathing

– The importance of the in-breath for getting a free, responsive, and supportive breath for voice work

When we have a better understanding of how breathing works, it impacts not only our voice work performance, but also our mental and overall health. Although breathing is an automatic function of our bodies, having an awareness of our breathing patterns will enhance our voicing performance.
