Want to improve your posture? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Long-term postural improvement and maintenance is not done simply by consciously standing upright or stretching a perceived tension. It is corrected and improved by understanding the way you move. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The way we move on a day-to-day basis will dictate our posture, as well as the efficiency at which we are to communicate with our body. As a singer, if you are looking to better your posture how are you improving the way you move? Are you aware of your current movement patterns? Proper bodywork will have tremendous benefits in regards to career and vocal longevity.
Feeling the sensation of breath can be easy. However, feeling how we are breathing is a different story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The relationship we have with our breath can change day-to-day, and a balanced posture is one of the keys to a healthy breathing pattern. Now, the way we approach and achieve a sense of balance is highly individualized. Some people inherit a better sense of postural balance through mobility routines while others benefit more from targeted strength training—and some mixture of both! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check in with your breath on a daily basis. Does your inhalation evoke greater resistance than your exhale, or visa versa? Do you know how to appropriately correct unnecessary tension without overbalancing other areas of the body? The breath and the body are deeply intertwined. Your ability to achieve a balanced posture is inherently influenced by the way you breathe.
Our level of body awareness is most often correlated with posture. However, approaching posture through the lens of visual ideality is not body awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Proper awareness is established when we spend time nurturing our relationship with our body, in the same way we spend countless hours in the practice room nurturing the relationship we have with our voices. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What physical techniques does your body respond to best when it comes to awakening awareness?
Trecho da ária “Quel guardo il cavaliere” de G. Donizetti no recital de alunos do Opera Studio 2018. Mais um momento muito especial pra mim...o fechamento de um ciclo de muito aprendizado, não somente técnico, mas de vida! Claro, com muito a melhorar, mas cheio de amor! ❤️ #operasinger#singer#operalover#opera#donizetti

Hello #operaworld . I like to practice in the evening. And again, Puccini's Liu: "Tu che di gel sei cinta". It’s not an easy piece, but I love Puccini, especially his opera "Turandot" and this aria. 🎹🎶❤️
I've been using Met Opera on Demand for a couple of months now for my thesis and let me tell you, it's a great way to see amazing performances from the comfort of your home (though you can still dress up for the occasion if you feel like it!). This streaming service offers an incredible selection of operas and documentaries to choose from, and you have a free 7-day trial to see how you like it.
But where to start?
In the next week I'll be posting illustrations of some operas I think are worth subscribing for (rest assured, all of them are magnificent). So stay tuned and maybe, if anything tickles your fancy, you'll decide to treat yourself for the holidays. Go to www.metopera.org/season/on-demand for more info!
