An in-depth, guided exploration and refinement of all fundamental components required for dynamic, truthful speech: relaxation, breathing freedom and power, resonance, responsive and limber tongue, soft palette and jaw, open channel, pitch range, articulation and imaginative connection to text and language. The Voice and the Self are intertwined; blocks in one area will affect the other. We can experience increased freedom in both through mindful exploration and practise. Free your VOICE = free YOURSELF!
