About the event
Masterclass 'The Vagus Nerve & Vocal Exercises'
Semi-Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT) exercises provide more benefits than only warming up/cooling down your vocal folds, releasing unnecessary tension and improving your voice. They also stimulate/activate and decompress your vagus nerve, helping you to reduce stress, calm your nervous system and improve your overall health and well-being. That's why I'm organizing this Masterclass to explain more about this.
This online Masterclass is for you if you want to know/learn:
- More about the vagus nerve and the autonomic nervous system (ANS)
- How the vagus nerve and voice are connected (Anatomy)
- What Semi-Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT) exercises are and how they improve your voice
- How to calm yourself/your nervous system with SOVT exercises*
*You can safely vocalize behind your mute.
