Synopsis

In part 2 of working with the Miller Voice Method (mVm) Nick will work with you to explore simple and actionable stretches, massages and exercises which release tension in the apparatus of our spoken voice. Some areas may be familiar but in mVm the work is highly specific and targeted. Why simply “release your jaw” when you can target at least four specific muscles which will do this? Why simply let your tongue hang forward when you have a whole sequence of exercises which support this desire? This workshop will give you at least 10 specific exercises which you can incorporate into your own work or routine which ae targeted at release and alignment. This workshop will explore the JAW, the TONGUE, and the NECK. Please note that it is recommended that you take participate in both Part 1 and Part 2 but it's not compulsory. This class will take place at 12-1pm AEDT (Syd/Melb) and 2-3pm NZ time.
