1. Promotes deep breathing!

As you begin to use “full body breathing” with a relaxed, soft belly, you allow the 
diaphragm to drop down, giving the lungs the freedom to expand more fully. 
A relaxed abdominal is essential for proper breath support while singing. I like to 
think of “filling up like a balloon” when I sing. This gives firm, active breath support 
and allows for deep, full breathing. Singing promotes slow, deep, healthy 
breathing.

Yoga and pranayama exercises are fantastic tools for singers, we do recommend doing a class to improve your singing. This is why we often integrate yoga in our singing workshop holidays.
