Soul’s Voice Online Video Session

Johanna BeekmanExplore your soul’s unique expression and vibration through voice over video conferencing with Johanna, using both intuitive and structured sound practice. Your voice is unlike anyone else’s. Most of us have insecurities around singing and speaking; it’s my goal to help you compassionately love your whole voice, embracing vulnerability to let your soul shine through.

We will unpack preconceptions you may have about your natural instrument, tune it up, and use breath and intention to help energy and sound of your soul flow unrestricted through your body.
Deep embodied singing can recalibrate the nervous system, balance emotions, and help you move through the world with more confidence. Great for public speakers, chanters, teachers, performers, storytellers, and anyone seeking a more intimate relationship with their own authentic voice and being. No previous experience required.
