Revisiting Alignment and the Singing Body:

October 14th Noon-2pm, Eastern Time online via Zoom.
$60 early bird registration, through October 1st.
Free for Aligned and Aware Members
5 day replay for all who register.

We need to be able to ‘see’ our singers in the studio and understand how their body is or is not supporting their sound production.

We know our whole body is our instrument and much has been discussed in vocal pedagogy about the importance of singing posture.

I believe posture is much less important than we’ve been taught! After all, we are not static structures on stage, we are dynamic, moving instruments.

Alignment is a much better tool to use when it comes to the voice, but it doesn’t offer us everything we need to understand the body.

We can fill out the picture of the singing body when we consider and apply the concept of biotensegrity and gain an understanding of how singing is a whole body activity.

In the workshop we will explore….
**Alignment as a tool and not a rule.
**How biotensegrity helps us better understand the relationship between bones, muscles and other connective tissues in the body
**movements to explore how our bodies move and ways to find ease in the hips and shoulders.

Early bird Registration through Oct 1st $60, (registration then becomes $75)

What People Are Saying About Workshops with Sarah Whitten…

“This is the missing piece for me when it comes to my body, my breath and my singing.”

“I have been searching for something like this for the last 18 years.”

” I finally understand my low back pain (and it feels much better).”
