About the teacher

Clare Fanning, aside diverse studies and work experience, began teaching voice in 1983 after nearly 2,000 hrs of training with her Master, Kurt Wronke-Marion, in Nice, France.  Maitre Marion insisted Clare take this knowledge of the voice forward to help others. Clare found that even if she had 35hrs of classes a week, it was only touching 14 to 15 people.  She decided to put together a guidebook and internet teaching sites to give the general public a wider access to this little understood knowledge.  She established Vocal Yoga VY® trademark, to identify this technology coming from 300 years of practice by the Italian Masters and combined basic yoga asanas for strengthening the body for vocal mastery and inner preparation. 

 

About the Vocal Yoga VY®

By definition, “ Vocal Yoga VY® is the silent strengthening and preparation of the inner and outer body 'pre-speech'. Vocal Yoga VY® silently helps the body movements to hold sound firmly while gradually leading the vocal chords towards the bottom of the throat, wherein lay the individual's fingerprint vocal personality and color."
