As Yoga teachers, we spend much of our time focused on the strength and dexterity
of the physical form. We refine the postures, and the movement so we can demonstrate,
or model, fluidity and stability most effectively. Instructing an asana room full of students
requires that we communicate on more than just a physical level. With an awareness of the
obstacles along the path of clear communication, we can enhance our abilities to encourage
and instruct others. Concepts such as these will be applied to the speaking voice:
~ Ahimsa~ Stretch~ Support~ Attention~ Intention~ Flexibility ~
SPEAKING OF YOGA is an introductory voice workshop for yoga teachers.
How a teacher uses his voice is of the utmost importance!
Developing and refining your soothing, calming, inspiring, and confident voice
will benefit your classes and your students' yoga experience.
The following is one of the various tools Sarah Bell will share with us Saturday Nov 16 at 4pm;
"Intoning is an excellent way to warm up before teaching a class. Take a sentence and elongate
each syllable, each on the same tone the whole way through and slide each into the next.
How do we achieve this?
Savor each vowel. Here's a good one to use...but english works too!"
SARAH BELL is a classically trained actress with a keen interest in the voice.
Having undergone surgery years ago to remove vocal nodules, and relearning
how to speak through working with a speech pathologist for a year of voice
therapy to aid her recovery, Sarah’s understanding of the voice as an instrument and
how to keep it strong, supple and healthy has continued to deepen over the years.
Sarah is a member of the teacher training faculty at YogaWorks.
