Awakening Your True Voice:
Health and Vitality Through Better Breathing
Six-session Virtual Course at The Open Center
Plus FREE Intro Class

There is no greater joy than to use our voices with power and authenticity. Developing a physical understanding of how breath creates and supports our voice frees us to become more engaging speakers and more musical singers. This course creates a supportive environment in which self-consciousness dissolves and your true voice emerges.

Integrating the Alexander Technique with natural, reflexive breathing, Jean McClelland will help you experience greater ease and vitality in your body, fuller breathing, and a stronger, more nuanced voice. Folk songs, spirituals, and spoken text will encourage more open self-expression. No previous vocal experience necessary.

This program will be offered “live” online. Sessions of the class will be recorded and shared with participants.
