Do auditions make you tense up?

Do you feel tension in your body when you act? It’s a common concern I hear from actors, specifically about tension in your jaw, neck, and chest. I get it; the industry is stressful!

  • You get 5 pages of sides the night before the audition, and you really want to get off book.

  • Or you’re on a TV show, and you keep receiving new versions of the script, and you have to learn your lines over and over again.

  • You can be on set and feel immense pressure because of time; sometimes there is only one take and then everyone has to go to lunch, so you have to nail your part.

  • You can feel stressed when you're at a callback and there's a lot of powerful people in the room, and all of a sudden, you don’t feel free anymore.

And literally you're feeling the tension manifest itself where it shows the most, in your jaw and your chest, and sometimes maybe even in your heart. It's totally understandable that under such stress, your instrument will experience this type of tension... But there is a deeper reason why this resistance occurs. When you click the link above to watch my free training, you’ll discover...

  1. The true nature of your instrument is being alive... feeling an impulse and following it. Everything you’ve learned and been conditioned to feel since you were a child can be toxic to your instrument.

  2. Tips to purge the mechanisms that have taken over your instinct, your expression, your ability to be free.

  3. How to get reacquainted with and embrace all the natural feelings and impulses that you possess and release yourself from judgment to build your instrument back up.

Watch the training below, and no longer be a prisoner to tension holding your body and instrument hostage. It’s time to show up fully and feel your freedom!
