A workshop focused on
the PSOAS MUSCLE and its role in speaking and singing
What role does the psoas major muscle play in speaking and singing?
Are you someone who is interested in vocal exploration?
Are you curious about the connection between voice and body?
✨ Join us ✨
This workshop will present the findings from my latest research study called ‘The role of the psoas major muscle in singing and speaking’. This research paper was recently published by Routledge at the peer-reviewed journal Voice and Speech Review.
The first part of the workshop will be dedicated to the research results. The second part of the workshop will be focused on practical exercises such as physical/vocal warm-ups, guided meditation, and specific poses aimed at the psoas muscle. Every participant will have an opportunity to learn and connect with the psoas major muscle, restore balance in the body, explore authentic sounds, and release unwanted tensions.
You will need a yoga mat, a yoga block or a book, Zoom.
✨ ALL WELCOME ✨
“If we take into consideration that ‘the interaction between muscle tension, postural use, and vocal use has a very complex relationship’ we need to address not only larynx or diaphragm, we have to incorporate the whole body when speaking or singing (Cardoso et al, 2019, p.124.e12). In case of this study, we need to take into consideration that the PM muscle is part of strong postural muscles that helps to keep the body upright and moving (Brown, 1996) and affects the thoracic cavity (Leborgne & Rosenberg, 2019). This statement is already telling us that the psoas major muscle plays role in alignment and also respiration.”

“Hi! I’m Michaela. I have been leading this project for past 6 years. I am passionate about finding out how body/physical movement can impact vocal projection. I got very excited about the findings of this research and I cannot wait to share them with you. Please visit my website and find out more about what I do:
"Really enjoyed the class, exactly what I need to further explore my vocal ability and to stay in tune with my body. I will be returning." - Sinead
