Transcript of Intercostal Diaphragmatic Breathing

What is the Diaphragm? How do we use it as an actor? Exercise: Intercostal Diaphragmatic Breathing By Abigail Hinze The diaphragm muscle is a sheet of muscle essential for humans and other mammals to breathe. Breath is the fuel of the voice, whether it is for singing or for voice over work. The stronger the diaphragmatic muscles, the better you can regulate the amount of breath that is pushed over your vocal cords, so improving the control you have over your voice in your sessions. When the diaphragm is strong you can ensure a steady stream of air for your needs, you can speak longer without needing a breath, and you have more power for volume or attack in your speaking.

information from http://raiseyourvoiceacting.com/2012/06/22/breathing-with-your-diaphragm-what-does-that-mean/ 1. Lay down in supine (on back relaxed).
2. Let out any air in body.
3. Breath into diaphragm for 4 seconds.
4. See how long you can let out air for WITHOUT
straining on a 'F' sound. Things to Remember: * When laying down in supine you should feel a curve in back
*Stay relaxed
* Don't Breath into chest
* Don't close eyes <--- anyone know why?
* When finished exercise lay on side in fetal position <--- anyone again know why?
*Make sure you stop when you start to strain Ryan is going to show an example first.
