Karin’s approach to integrating Voice and Body, is rooted in creating full-body awareness. This allows singers to become aware of their own physical sensations, or cues - before, during and after they sing a note or phrase. It's an efficient means to accomplish specific vocal goals, because once singers develop the physical sensitivity to correlate exactly how their body feels, with how they sound, they quickly learn how to achieve their best sounds, almost automatically.
Karin has studied many fitness disciplines, especially what's popular among musicians: Gyrotonic, Yoga, Rolfing, Massage, Meditation, etc. Of all of them, The Pilates Method and The M.E.L.T. Method had the most to offer her, so she took time out to become a Certified Instructor of both. Now she had the experience and know-how to strengthen, lengthen, decompress, coordinate and balance her not-so-young body... so much so, that 20 years later, her full-body strength, flexibility, freedom of movement, etc., continue to improve.
