This is Part 2 of our Breath Support series. So if you haven’t listened to Part 1 yet, start with that and then come back to this. It’s a 30 minute (Ok, it’s slightly longer than 30 minutes, but it’s worth it! I promise!) segment on the next component of efficient breath support: what happens on the inhale. When you can begin to combine the rib action (outlined in this lesson) on the inhale with the Transversus Abdominis action on the exhale, you have fully mastered breath support! Welcome to deeper resonance, more volume, and a sense of ‘groundedness’ in the voice. Not to mention– speaking will not only become easier, but much more pleasant, because you won’t be straining in the throat muscles.
Speaking ‘on support’ is a great way of bringing your entire body into the act of communication, so that you are fully committing to your message. It will take some practice to get used to, so please leave questions and comments below about how it’s going.
