{Upcoming Workshop} Yoga for Vocalists with Aude Cardona

August 18, 2011

This workshop is dedicated to singers and people who want to improve their voice through Yoga.

Students will work with Asanas (postures) aimed at improving posture, breath control, and cultivating an awareness as to what the vocal apparatus requires to function naturally and without obstacles. Attention will be given individually as every person is different and presents different patterns.

A major emphasis will be given to breath and to practicing Asanas that free the throat and breathing channels. Pranayama, the regulation of the breath,will be introduced as a way to relax, open and warm up the voice. We will conclude with a routine of asana and pranayama the performer can employ as a means to prepare the body and mind before performing.

“The singer must have some knowledge of his or her anatomical structure, particularly the structure of the throat, mouth and face, with its resonant cavities, which are so necessary for the right production of the voice. Besides that, the lungs and diaphragm and the whole breathing apparatus must be understood, because the foundation of singing is breathing and breath control.” Luisa Tetrazzini, Soprano

About the Instructor:

Aude started practicing Iyengar Yoga in Rishikesh, India, in 2001. Since then she has continued to deepen her practice in France with S.F Biria, and in the US with Kevin Gardiner, Genny Kapuler, Carrie Owerko and Joan White – eventually choosing to complete a 3 year training where she obtained her Iyengar Yoga teacher certification.

Audeʼs interest for Iyengar Yoga was instantaneous. Her mind was able to focus and her physical awareness increased, helping her tremendously with her opera singing. She later graduated from Manhattan School of Music where she studied voice.

Aude practices both Yoga and singing and enjoys exploring the link between them when teaching Yoga as they are both vibrational arts, echoing one another. Aude’s classes refelct a focused, calm yet energetic environment. Aude is grateful to share Yoga, a vehicle that keeps her going more gracefully through life, an endless path of wonderful discoveries.

“Yoga releases the creative potential in life.” BKS Iyengar.
