Public speaking is difficult, so expert orators often resort to industry tips, such as practicing in front of the mirror or picturing the mirror naked. Learn to articulate with confidence in front of any audience with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a private two-hour full-body voice workout at The Vocal Gym for Public Speaking in the East Village (a $250 value).
Speech coaches encourage speakers to harness their vocal abilities, guiding them toward strengthened vocal cords and increased articulation within a comfy, flower-accented space. The two-hour full-body voice workout (a $125/hour value) blends breathing and core exercises with intense motor-system activities, which boosts resonance and verbalization while teaching students to literally talk out of both sides of their mouth. The private session boosts the participant's confidence and can help the expresser project and enunciate, speak for hours without going hoarse, and turn noticeable Elizabethan accents into eloquent but decipherable standard American Elizabethan accents. Students should wear movable gym attire.
