Hello and welcome to MADVENT 2 - the second window on your advent calendar of audio aural warm up joy.
Today we’re looking at a variety of exercises - please just join in - and er- won’t take you long.
I’d like you to stand in a neutral position.
Legs slightly part, knees flexed, chilled. And Arms ....by your side - shoulders back as if you have a little hook attached to your head and to the ceiling. Just to help with pulling up ...your posture.
Just open your mouth wide for me. And make it as small as you can.
And now, do the same but you’re going to open up your whole face, so when I say open wide… I mean your eyes, your nose, your face, your forehead everything Isi going to open. And when I say close youre going to close all that down to make it as teeny as possible and squished.
Very Good. Do THAT A couple more times if you want to.
Maybe just give yourself a little massage now on your face again. Ok lovely. Now what I do is after I’ve done little circles… I will just do …pitter patters - like a little horse race on my face.
Now …you might have one brewing….let’s do a nice big burp.
Just Get rid of that er …extra tension. It’s actually not an exercise - I’m just RUUUUDE.
Now we’re going to breathe a little bit. It’s from your tummy today. Really make it work - that diapragm..YOUR DIA-FRAG-MUH.
We’re going to
Breathe in for 4 out for 4
in for 4 then out for 8
in for 4 out for 12
And in for 4 out for 16
Can you count that high this morning?
Are we ready?
Breathe In 2, 3, 4 and OUT 2,3,4
In 2, 3, 4 and OUT 2,3,4,5,6,7,8
In 2, 3, 4 and OUT 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
In 2, 3, 4 and OUT 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16
Practice that, because that will help you do ...MANY things to do with breath control. And improve your general understanding of howwwwww to control that particular breath from that particular ares. Deep breathing. Deep breath. Good stuff.
So hopefully you’re feeling a little more relaxed to with all of that lovely breathing?!
Let move the ‘mmm’ sound
Make an ‘mmmmmm
