I developed this system of voice yoga from my own personal experience and expansion. I was a shy and withdrawn teenager. I struggled to speak up in groups and was petrified of public speaking. I was convinced I was tone deaf and though I yearned secretly to sing I would never dare. I carried these fears into my later life and know it fully affected my work, relationships and joy.
I made the clear decision that I was no longer going to give into these beliefs and thoughts but instead find a new way and my healing journey began.
The journey to find my voice turned out to be a journey to my heart and has been an epic adventure through both inner and outer worlds in which I have regained my personal power and discovered my true authentic self. I have been all around the world – Africa, India, Australia, America, Europe – and deep into my own self with an eight-month immersion into a medicine community in Central America, vision questing with the master teacher plants and then in 2016. I returned to the rainforest and during my time there, embarked on what was to be a four-month hermitage studying sound and healing. I have had the good fortune to meet many talented healers, shamans, religious teachers, Devotional singers, and energy workers whom I like to collectively call ‘light workers’.They have shared their time, knowledge, songs and hearts with me. And now it is my aim to share with you these tools and show how by connecting to our higher self and wisdom within, we have all we need contained within to be the radiant light that we are. We can be our own gurus and healers by creating a space within for stillness, for spirit, for our higher wisdom to flow, bringing us to a state of presence as this is where joy lives.
I still have to pinch myself that today I am a professional singer and voice coach, I sing Kirtan and have played at festivals, events and retreats all over the world. I lead medicine song circles and Cacao Ceremonies, I facilitate voice yoga workshops and have lots more plans for the future. Life is a blessing.
