Physical Exercises for Singers
Our ten minute tone up aims to help you warm up and relax the body prior to singing practise. Please Note:- Check with your doctor prior to attempting any exercises.
Stand with your arms by your side, breathe normally and keep the head and shoulders relaxed at all times.
Drop your chin to your chest then slowly circle your head to the left, then up and back (only a little), to the right and then back down to the front. (a complete circle). Repeat this 5 times each clockwise and anti-clockwise.
Raise your shoulders towards your head, slowly rotate them back, down and forward. Repeat this 5 times then reverse the direction. Shake your arms out when finished.
Bend forward from the waist and let your arms drop towards the floor. Slowly unfold the body and raise your arms above your head, stretching your arms upward, then out to the side lowering them slowly back to their natural position. Repeat this 5 times.
Keeping your head relaxed and facing forward, open your mouth and yawn – do this twice then inhale a deep breath to a count of 5 and exhale to a count of 15.
