Intro to Magaly’s Holistic Acting Class

The process I am going to share with you is a self-awareness process, which leads to a more malleable more receptive instrument. The quicker you can identify the personal blockages that are manifested by external and internal triggers …the quicker you can own the success that is your right as an actor.

Your spirit, mind, and body - these are the tools/instruments you are working with as an actor. So, if you have blockages which are impeding your from fully realizing moments of truth in the work that make for a great performance…a great audition…you need a spirit, mind, body technique which make those obstacles nothing more than a distant memory.

Your mind is so powerful. We will reference the emerging research on the neuroplasticity of mind – a field of study that affirms that we have the ability to alter the structure and function of our brains, which then allows us to alter our daily lives. We will employ ancient (yoga, pranayama breathing, affirmations, mantras) and modern techniques (The Feldenkrais method, creative visualization, etc.) with one aim – to recharge your mind, and reignite your brilliant create energy.

This process involves learning and adopting a series of daily exercises designed to change your mind, and therefore your career. Change your mind, and therefore change your approach to acting. Change your mind, and therefore change your life.

Success requires a few key ingredients – desire, love, and faith. If you have a burning desire to change your life; if you have a deep-seated love of the craft; and if you have faith that you were born to touch the hearts and minds of people – then you have the most elemental characteristics to change your life and your career with my guidance.

Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of our times said, “doing the same thing and expecting different result is the definition of insanity. “

You deserve a different result. Join me and try something new.
