Lorelei Kennedy, MS
Ten Breaths Away is the result of 30 years stage experience, 20 years teaching everyone from preschoolers to prisoners, and the lifelong pursuit of knowledge across many areas, particularly where the arts meet science and humanity.
Initially developed as an exercise to calm down quickly and diffuse stressful situations, I quickly realized that this could be used as a perfect companion to vocal and body warm ups, the Starter Sequence began to take shape as a very fast and effective tool to calm down - both on your own and used in group activities.
Using real-world tools, pulling from stage training, yoga principles, and anatomy basics, I will help you remember what your body does for you - and how you can help it along.
With my signature Ten Breaths Away Starter Sequence you'll be back to what you'd rather be doing using these fast, easy, and effective tools. The Starter Sequence takes you back to the basics using fun science facts and an interactive anatomy lesson, learning the foundational tools and tricks of theatrical voice and body warm ups, and the confidence to use them on command. You are only ever Ten Breaths Away from calming down and getting back to what you'd rather be doing.
