Overcome Public Speaking Fear

Calm Your Nerves During Public Speaking

Everyone has moments when they are nervous to speak aloud.  In this learn at lunch, you will learn proven methods to help manage your fight or flight response so your voice feels free and unrestricted. 

Muscles naturally tense in difficult communicative interactions.  Fear and anxiety create tension in parts of the body- neck, chest, shoulders, back, abdomen, and buttocks- due to shallow breathing, poor body posture, and fight or flight.  Students will learn a variety of strategies to manage the vocal symptoms of public speaking fear and anxiety:

BREATHING: Learn how to breathe properly for speech production.  Deep abdominal breathing and rib cage expansion exercises help to increase respiratory volume to achieve a strong, confident voice quality. 

ALIGNMENT: Counteract the effects of forward folding body posture associated with nervousness and fight or flight.  Students will learn simple posture adjustment techniques used by stage performers to stand tall to convey confidence.  

CONTROL YOUR VOICE: Public speaking fear results in voice strain, quiver, or pitch rise as the speaker produces sound at the level of the throat.  Students will learn physical postures that will help to drop the vocal resonance into the body's core to achieve a grounded vocal quality.

 Class fee is $45.00 

Techniques are derived from The Heather Lyle Vocal Yoga Method.

A Beautiful Speaking Voice

If you desire more control over your vocal confidence in public speaking situations or difficult communicative interactions, this workshop is for YOU! 

PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM (PNS):  Learn techniques to activate your PNS to manage public speaking fear and anxiety. 

PROPRIOCEPTION: Many argue your voice, not the eyes, is the window to your soul.  Your voice conveys a range of emotions from pleasure to fear.  Learn ways to sharpen your proprioceptive awareness for what happens in your voice in moments of high stress and anxiety.  You can begin to manage adverse vocal symptoms through proprioceptive awareness alone. 

ALIGNMENT: A powerful vocal performance begins the moment you enter a room.  Participants will learn body posture and alignment techniques used by professional speakers and performers.

BREATHING: Deep abdominal breathing and rib cage expansion exercises help to increase respiratory volume enabling participants to learn the foundations of achieving a strong, steady voice quality.

SOUNDING: Speaking fear and anxiety results in the tendency for the vocal pitch to rise as the speaker produces sound at the level of the throat and face. Participants will use gentle yoga postures paired with sounding to feel the effects releasing throat tension and dropping the voice into the lower abdomen to ground your vocal resonance.
