Teaching requires a commitment and presence every day where the body and the voice are continuously exposed in front of different “audiences”. We will work through many exercises to show how you could use your body language and voice in different situations. We will focus on awareness of our body position and breathing.
At the beginning of every session we have a warm up routine. We will go through some physical exercises to stretch and prepare your body for the session. The program is focused on three different themes; body language, breathing and vocal training.
- Body language. We will work with postures, awareness, creating good habits and learn how to use the body in a neutral position.
- Breathing. Learning how to use your breath can affect your ability to use your voice. Abdominal breathing is a great stress reliever as well, which can be helpful in public speaking.
- Vocal training. We focus on having a clear voice, articulating and projecting to a group of students or schoolchildren. We consider how the intensity, rhythm and direction of your voice will affect your message.
We will end each session with a relaxation routine that will help us calm down.
This workshop is for groups of 6-20 and it is aimed at people working as teachers in elementary school, high school, at University or any other academic institution.
