Kinesensic training is a self-teaching, sensory-based process based on feeling the way the human body functions naturally when it is free of adverse conditioning. It then uses those physical sensations to identify, produce and voluntarily control the voice and body. Students will encounter the training in a cooperative, non-threatening environment, then apply new discoveries to areas of the student's own choosing.
