✏Yoga for Singers Book Summary : From opera diva Karita Mattila to Lady Gaga, from Broadway's Mandy Patinkin to pop star Jason Mraz, singers are doing yoga, and experiencing its ability to free their voices and psyches. Yoga provides bountiful rewards for singers: the practice of rib-opening and spine-lengthening asanas can improve alignment, while spinal twists, pranayama breathing techniques, and meditation can focus the mind and calm performance anxiety. Some singers have turned to beta blockers to deal with the stress of stage fright, but yoga proves there is a medication-free, self-nurturing method of combating the pressure of performing. Yoga For Singers gives singers and voice teachers the tools that yoga can provide to help improve their physical, emotional and thus vocal well-being and to manage performing with the most personal of instruments, their voices

✏Yoga for Singing Book Summary : The 19th-century Italian singing teacher Giovanni Battista Lamperti wrote the following about the primary requirement for the singer: "'Know thyself' applies to [the] singer more than to other professions, because to sing well, body, soul and mind are tuned together." This tuning together of body, mind, and soul is the essence of yoga. The practices of yoga can be used as tools to develop, maintain, and greatly enhance the art of singing in all its facets - physical technique, breath control, mental focus, musical flow, expressive communication, and radiant performance. Yoga for Singing: A Developmental Tool for Technique and Performance outlines the many and intimate connections between yoga and singing and presents a detailed approach to using the practices of yoga to support the developmental of singing technique, as well as to lay a foundation for confident performance and a lifetime of good health for a long singing career. Author Judith Carman presents a systematic approach to the yoga practices that are directly related to the art of singing and demonstrates how closely these practices match the needs of singers. The yoga practices and their connections to specific singing needs are presented as: physical postures (Asana), breathing practices (pranayama), concentration/meditation practices, and deep relaxation techniques. The copious illustrations and specific practices are designed to be used by singers and voice teachers, regardless of their level of acquaintance with yoga. The book also makes a persuasive case for the inclusion of ongoing yoga classes especially designed for singers in the university voice curriculum. Yoga for Singing presents vocal students and professionals, voice teachers, and movement instructors (many of whom include a significant amount of yoga in stage movement and dance courses required in conservatory vocal/opera programs as well as in pre-professional apprentice programs) with a unique approach to technique and performance improvement that fits the increasing interest in and prevalence of yoga practices.

✏Music and Mantras Book Summary : “Singing is as human as breathing, and this book tells us why.” —Mark Guarino, contributing music writer, The Guardian Celebrated yogi-musician Girish opens new possibilities for transforming your life through song, combining the ancient art of singing mantra with twenty-first century neuroscience research. For as long as he can remember, Girish has created rhythm to accompany life. His first experience of music as sacred art came in college, playing with jazz bands. “During improvisational sessions,” he recalls, “there were these unexplainable moments of synchronicity and intuition that felt like magic.” This led Girish to an unexpected journey—a seeming detour to live as a monk in an ashram for five years that inadvertently nourished his musical artistry. Here, he studied Sanskrit as a means to understand the deeper meanings of ancient chants, which sparked a life-changing event that led him back to music—and to combine music with Sanskrit chants. Now he shares what he’s learned to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and traditions to transform body, brain, and life through mantra and music. With Music and Mantras, Girish has created an interactive toolkit—including more than ninety minutes of companion audio material—for personal transformation through singing, sharing his own experience as a musician, yogi, and former Hindu monk. Weaving simple, elegant mantras from ancient traditions with neuroscience, Girish shows us how to achieve greater peace of mind, clarity, calm, focus, and even improved health and wealth through the yogic art of chanting—an ideal practice for singing our way to happiness, health, and prosperity.

✏The Yoga Face Book Summary : View our feature on Annelise Hagen's The Yoga Face. To keep their faces looking younger, women today try everything from invasive procedures such as plastic surgery and Botox to expensive cosmeceuticals. The Yoga Face is a new and completely natural alternative anti-aging regimen that women can do anytime and anywhere-and in just minutes. The exercises, developed by yoga expert and instructor Annelise Hagen, are based on a simple principle: The muscles of the face are no different from the muscles of the rest of the body. If you don't exercise the muscles below the neck, they become weak and flabby, and the same thing will happen to your face with age. Just as yoga routines work the muscles in the body, the stretches and movements in The Yoga Face tighten and tone the face muscles-and combat wrinkles. "Working out" with fun facial exercises such as the Louis Armstrong "Satchmo," the Marilyn Monroe "kiss," and the "Lion Face," readers will notice changes quickly; and over time, the results are dramatic. Illustrated with more than seventy-five instructive photos throughout, The Yoga Face offers an easy, safe, and effective solution to help women turn back the clock and have beautiful, young-looking skin.
