Aligned and Aware

Solutions for the Singing Body

A membership and video library for singers and voice teachers who are ready to bridge the gap between vocal pedagogy and the rest of the singing body.

Move beyond pedagogy.

In pedagogy books we learn ideals from pictures, where bodies only exist on a page. 

That’s not actually how the singing body works. 

Whether you’re on stage performing or teaching in a voice studio, life happens in 3-D, and we need tools to address the reality of the human body. 

The voice is more than just a larynx and set of lungs.

It is a production resulting from the interplay of respiration, phonation and resonance, all of which are impacted by and inextricable from our skeletal, nervous and muscular systems.

That’s called vocal interdependence. It’s a fancy way of saying your voice depends on every other system in the body to work well.

Inside the membership, we’re going out of the voice box and off of the pedagogy page to help you experience those connections in your body and make lasting changes that will transform your singing and teaching.

Get Ready to Unlock Your
Singing Body

Throughout your career you’ve heard ‘the whole body is your instrument’, but no one… not your beloved voice teacher, the countless coaches you’ve worked with, nor the maestro in master classes… has ever really been able to tell you what that means.

In a singer’s journey, physical tension and dysfunction can pose significant barriers to finding ease in the body and the voice. 

These are not just minor obstacles;

they represent substantial hurdles to expressing your true vocal potential.

Solutions for the Singing Body

Vocal technique alone will not solve singing issues that are actually caused by a tense neck, a non-functional core, or a locked up ribcage. 

There is no such thing as perfect singing posture. Prompts such as “elevate your sternum” and “slightly bend your knees” are a band-aid approach to undoing postural imbalances. 

Our bodies are dynamic. So let’s stop shoving body parts where we think they are supposed to be, hoping it’ll fix things!

It’s time to have confidence in our body’s ability to support singing. 

And it’s time to increase our capacity to work with the full singing body.

Aligned and Aware is here to help you do just that.

Singers and voice teachers who have solid vocal technique but suspect the rest of the body might be holding their voice back.

Voice Pros looking for a community of curious, committed learners. 

Voice Teachers, Singers, SLPs, Laryngologists, Conductors and Collaborative Pianists who are ready to look outside the box of traditional voice training to gain new ways of working with and understanding the singing body.

Unlike traditional vocal pedagogy that often focuses solely on technique, Aligned and Aware emphasizes the integral relationship between the body and voice. Our approach is rooted in movement, breathing and understanding cross body connections created by muscle and fascia seen through the lens of biotensegrity, biomechanics and movement science. We offer the voice world a comprehensive understanding that bridges the gap between vocal technique and singing body knowledge. 

While individual experiences vary, it could take just one movement class or one workshop to unlock a new discovery about the singing body that will lead to vocal transformation. 

Yes! Once you join, you’ll have unlimited access to the learning library, including all masterclasses, workshops, and additional resources. This allows you to learn at your own pace and revisit the content as often as needed.

Hi, I'm Sarah Whitten

I believe singers are more than a larynx and a set of lungs.

We have both lived experiences and habitual patterns of movement and tension that are expressed through the environment of our body. When we move beyond the typical anatomy and physiology found in pedagogy books, we see living breathing, dynamic individuals right in front of us.

With more than two decades of experience and training in multiple movement modalities, I help singers build their physical instrument through simple, yet powerful movement practices and I help voice teachers draw new lines of connection of how the voice works integrally with the rest of the body.

This is your invitation to join me in a movement to revolutionize and reshape how the voice world understands and experiences the singing body.
