What is the best yoga stretch for the sides of throat muscles?

What’s the best yoga pose for slouches singers

Cobra, because cobra counteracts the slouch and achieve a straighter vocal tract.  Lots of people have slouches, and most aren’t aware of it.  Very few people stand straight.

Yoga humor

So, here I am working on my innovative method to learn singing called VocalPosture.com.   Then for undetermined reasons, I injured my lower back (sacrificial preface to my upcoming posture book).  

 

Now, of all the activities I’ve avoided past, I’m taking hot yoga.  Yes, hot yoga, where I’m the only guy in class.  Men, you can’t find a better place for hot women at attractive ratios.

 

Actually, in hot yoga, they teach us how to self-inflict-painful-stretches in a heated room.  I walk in with a backache and walk out with added shoulder and neck aches. 

 

Modern yoga feature special lighting, 12 feet high mirrors, filtered water, showers (I’m surprised it’s not filtered water showers); all for only $155 per month, including the young enthusiastic, attractive yoga instructors, of course. 

yoga–initial thoughts

April 16, 2009

Yoga can stretch all kinds of muscles and would work for much of vocalposture’s objectives on reducing muscular tension. But, yoga is not complete.

1. Trigger points and emotional-blocked muscular tensions are difficult to rid by yoga.
2. Yoga, particularly in a class or any kind of public session, won’t release much of the suppressed emotional tensions.
