    The Grounded Actor is an actor who emerges from a safe space, is fully integrated into their body, is “open for business,” and has removed all obstacles in their path.  Their voice, body, and breath work together to create a character that stems from truth and openness.

    The actor’s job is to tell a story, to reflect humanity, and to be a vessel for truth.  These stories, humans, and truths are not always pleasant, some can be downright horrible.  But by implementing the techniques from The Grounded Actor Project, the actors themselves do not suffer the consequences.  Instead, they keep their feet on the ground, their hearts and throats open, and their boundaries strong.  They allow the story to flow through them, without compromising who they are as a person.


    I find this work to be very helpful in today’s society with so many distractions; pings from our phones, apps vying for our attention.  We are all living in the ether of the online world, and it can be challenging to drop back into the body as actors need to do.  When I was on tour, I was groundless.  We were in different cities sometimes every night, and it was hard to find a way to not wear out my body and voice.  But by returning to the tools of yoga therapy, an analog way of connection, I was able to replenish my energetic bank account and continue to tell the story of my character.  


    I hope you find this work helpful, too.  Let’s get started.
