I shared with students on several things in CS/IT [www.eswarnim.com and www.jiaedutech.com which is in development] based on their interests for over two hours. I'll be searching and sharing on throat related exercises here. I'll also search for specialists to learn related exercises and that perhaps also have them join our network to share with our members and with worldwide because all our public content is indexed by search engines.

Attention should be given to posture alignment as well as to neck, shoulder, breathing and jaw exercises before focusing on the vocal muscles. A general exercise program, emphasizing endurance and flexibility, raises awareness of sites of muscular tension, maximizes airflow for breathing, and leads to a more efficient use of energy during speaking and singing.

The series incorporates the principles of exercise physiology, e.g. it contains both isometric (static) and isotonic (dynamic) exercises.
Vocal function exercises consist of four steps : ...
