Toning

woman relaxing
If you’ve heard Gregorian chants, you know how soothing sound can be. Sounds vibrate in the body when we make them, creating a feeling of peacefulness and balance.

Simply making vowel sounds can be relaxing. Stand comfortably in a private, open space, inside or outside. Let your arms hang slightly out from your sides with your palms up. One by one, recite or sing the following vowel sounds gently and with vigor. Increase the volume, but do not force your voice.

AH (“mama”)
EE (‘see”)
AY (“say”)
OH (“toe”)
OO (“too”)
