Posture and alignment
Does it really matter if my hips, arms, chest, shoulders aren’t properly aligned and free? The vocal folds are within the larynx, FAR AWAY from all those parts of the body?
Try clenching your fist, and holding your arm tense. Is it just your arm that’s affected? Or does this tension transfer to your shoulders, chest, neck? The tension even in your arm can transfer all the way to the external muscles of larynx. So realise, we’re always connected. Muscle to muscle. Joint to joint. Every muscle affects another group of muscles. Keep this in mind, keep great posture and alignment. Great Freedom in the body will promote great freedom in the larynx.
