Hey everybody it’s Molly again from The
Prepared Performer and we’re here for a Quick Tip Tuesday vocal tips on Tuesday.
This is the second part of a four-part series about breathing. I have students
asking all the time about how they can connect to their breath. How they can
have better breath support and one thing that is often overlooked is the fact
that when we breath even though we are really getting into their natural way of
breathing which is low like a baby does a video of my youngest son when he was first born in watching his belly move up and down cuz we see that he’s breathing naturally. As we go through to our days, as we get older, we learned to keep our stomachs suck in and to take short little breath so we can keep getting everything done and move through our days. And it’s important to
remember that we need to practice breathing just like everything else and not only when we’re
singing. So, it’s a great idea to start off your day by intentionally breathing. That’s it just breathed. So I’m gonna give you a couple of exercises that you can do. Okay first of all I want to stand up, nice and tall shoulders down and relax back right on your stardom and I call it your sunshine. Head is up, put your hand in your belly. And you gonna imagine, your diaphragm is dropping down and in the air is filling
up your entire breath all around your whole belly. And all I want to do is breath in to your nose. Keep your shoulders down expanding everything
down low like your accordance suck in that air in hold it. And then breath out to your lips. Breath in again through your nose, the biggest, lowest breath you can take and breath out, as you breathing out I want you tight in your belly through pursed lips. Squeeze all that air out. And then breath in. One more time just like that pursed lips. Breath it all out, good one more big huge breaths. Breathing it low and letting air coming all the way in up, up, up right? Expanding everything and then “His” this time. You’ll notice that you “His” that your tummy tighten a little bit. “Hisss” Awesome. Breath in again. This time I want you, pull this “His’s” I’m gonna show what my stomach has doing. Keep on “Hissing” I don’t know if you can see. So do a little breath like that, you will hear. Great were just waking up our bodies and reminding our bodies that it’s ok to breath right? Breath in one more time and same thing again I’m gonna stand up. I’m gonna breath in really well you can’t really see it works better when I’m pregnant you can see my whole belly. To breath really really big down low. Expanding your whole stomach right you’re whole back everything down there and then allowing the air to
come up a little bit higher all the way into your lungs right? Really imagine
it’s coming way down low like all the way to your pelvis. Breathing in and then now lets do the pulsating “His’s” again..Good last time. Breath in and hold it. And now really quickly just blow it all out. Awesome, so try that everyday and you gonna start to notice how you become more in
tune with your whole body breathing wise. It’s really really a great way to remind
yourself that it is OK breath and that we need to breathe and to connect ourselves to our lower half of our body in supporting us. Next week I’m gonna do a breathing
exercise it’s a little more hardcore this one is really just to wake yourself up. Do it every day whether you’re a singer
or a speaker or just a human being, do this everyday. Ok see you next for a Quick Tip Tuesday. Bye
