The big question: does fat help you sing better? Why so many operatic singers are obese? One of my first articles here wanted to address this issue, but I want to dive deeper and show you my opinion from energetic and physical perspectives. My take on the subject is: Fat does not make you a… Continue reading Fat Singer or Fit Singer?
How could we improve our fitness and our life in general by using our other senses? Could we be like superheroes? Well, we do have certain qualities that we don't know how to exploit enough. There is so much more to explore (I would rather say recognise and accept) regarding our biology and overall humanity.… Continue reading Fitness beyond the Senses
Music. Once everything for me. It still is the old lover who hurts me from time to time. But now I understand that Music is just another expression of the whole truth (albeit a very complete one, I must say). Which also means there is more than one lover that's going to stick with you… Continue reading I see the Music in Fitness
The desired "veiny" look. Is it a good thing? what energetic implications does it have?

For this to happen you need to have a low body… Continue reading Vascularity, Blood & Energy

Sometimes it's the body itself that releases hormones (females mainly), or the moon's influence, or... call… Continue reading Cravings, yet again
I couldn't have resumed my whole life in better three words than these, and what a pleasant surprise to discover that the 3 of them are not only closely linked (as I've always said, they are all branches of the same tree), but also now it's been scientifically researched that having lucid dreams about singing… Continue reading Dreaming, Singing & Exercise

There are people who learn how to sing (i.e. they learn the technique) but aren't singers. And then there are people who don't know the technique of singing but are great singers. Am I saying that a singer is born? hmm... YES! 😀 - blunt me! (even if sometimes they don't know it… Continue reading Singers: The Emotional Factor
The random days that I feel in 'low singing form' because I haven't had the time to warm up my voice, I so often find myself starting the gig with a few glitches and unwanted (involuntary, uncontrollable) sounds that disappear gradually as my core muscles warm up during the gig. This means that 15-20 minutes… Continue reading Singers: The Cardio Factor

Also stiffness in… Continue reading The Six-Pack Abs Singer
