Vocal tension is the #1 culprit of strained singing, vocal fatigue, burnout, and vocal problems! These 3 warmups will help prime you for relaxed, open, free singing.
Remember: if you’re someone who experience lots bodily tension (like yours truly!), singing without tension is possible — you just have to incorporate relaxation techniques into your vocal routine.
The 3 vocal warmups in the video below are:
(1) The Teapot Hiss – eliminates lower body, ribcage, and lower back tension that can creep “up the chain” and affect your voice.
(2) The Scary Lion’s Yawn – busts jaw, tongue, neck, and throat tension, all in one!
(3) “Oh, Wow!” – a simple warmup to reinforce a relaxed jaw and open throat.
Try these simple vocal warmups and let me know if they help you relax and free up your voice! I’d love to hear from you in the comments section.
