  • 2.20.18- Teaching Yoga and Breathing Techniques for Speech Anxiety

    This workshop will address the common patterns that result from speech anxiety and explain why they occur. We will then practice gentle alignment and breath based movement exercises to remedy these habits. These techniques can be taught to students in preparation for speech assignments and presentations. No yoga clothes, mats or props will be needed.

     

    This workshop is helpful for all instructors teaching Rhetorical Arts, First Year Seminar, and any course with an Oral Flag.

     

    Evan Marsh has been practicing and teaching yoga for over a decade. He was first introduced to yoga through his career in dance. He received his B.A. in Dance from Loyola Marymount University in 2008, and shortly after began teaching yoga in his hometown of Berkeley California. Working with such a diverse community set the tone for his journey as a teacher and has enabled him to adapt to the varying needs of the individual. He is currently teaching Yoga for Dancers at Loyola Marymount University while developing a Wellness & Education Program for Athletes.
