Exercises

 

My exercises for breathing are split into three sections.

Firstly getting in touch with this new way of breathing if, like many people , you have forgotten how to breathe using the diaphragm and the abdomen.

 

Second gaining control by exercises that help you to exhale in a slow and contolled way.

 

And third, increasing the strength of those abdominal muscles so that they support the voice effectively.

 

Exercises.

  1. To begin with - find a chair or high stool and place your hands palm down on the seat. This should make you bend over slightly. Breathe in and notice the muscles in your side and abdomen have to work. When you have grown used to that feeling stand up straight and try to reproduce the same expansion.
  2. Stand easily with your hands in front of you clasped together. Breathe in as fast as you can simultaneously raising your hands above shoulder height. Then lower your arms slowly while counting aloud. Try to reach twenty at first- then aim for thirty seconds.
  3. Lie comfortably on a flat serface with your knees raised and your feet on the floor. Place a book on your abdomen. Breathe in using your daiphragm which will cause your abdomen to rise. Now breathe out using your abdominal muscles- try to lower the book gradually and slowly without jerking.
  4. Take a good breath in and exhale on an "f" sound giving as much force as you can to the sound without tightening the throat.
  5. Take a good breath in then create an easy humming sound- hold that sound as long as you can - 20 seconds is good- 25 seconds is exceptional. When you reach 35 seconds call me to prove it!
