I’m a huge believer in breathwork, jaw and thoracic release, emotional connection and intuitive work. You can listen to my podcast to discover my holistic approach in depth.
The voice is so deeply connected to your psyche, to your essence. No matter the session – be it vocal technique, emotional release, creative guidance… – all parts of who we are should be considered. That’s what having a holistic approach means.
Beyond distilling mindfulness, it’s reminding ourselves that all of life has an influence on how we express ourselves, how we digest our emotions, how we connect to our intuition and the world around us.
And so, after years of working in the communication and the arts industry, I gathered all my skills, combined them to my passion for wellness and mindfulness and created The Artful Athlete. A holistic and mindful approach to Voice practice.
Because Voice work goes deeper than just technique.
… And Methods
I am constantly evolving as a practitioner and a coach. The learning never stops. And thus, in my sessions I make use of all knowledge I’ve gathered over the years.
My breath journey combined singing, sophrology, Wim Hoff, the Alexander technique, Pranayama, meditation, Infinity Breath, and most recently, the Oxygen Advantage and SRT (Subconscious Release Technique). As well as supporting the voice, these tools have incredible effects on the lifting of limiting beliefs, stress release and boosting confidence.
My approach to the body is heavily influenced by my performance training as well as the rehabilitation work I did to recover mobility after an accident which left me half-paralysed from the neck down, my calisthenics, yoga, ayurvedic nutrition and animal flow practice. I know what pain does to the body and the mind: there are ways to liberate ourselves from its grip safely and mindfully.
On the path, I have discovered the benefits of energy work on the brain, the body, the creative soul and the mind. After realising how transformational this experience was, I certified in LaHoChi and Golden Triangle energy work. Combining it with a breath practice allows for deep release and restoration.
As a holistic coach, having such a well of techniques and methods to draw from means that every single voice coaching, every single release session is never the same.
