Your most important tool as a teacher of asana is not your body. It is your voice. I work with Yoga Teachers to help them use their voice skillfully and healthfully. I offer workshops and one-on-one Sessions.
Even the most respected teachers could elevate their teaching by learning to use the voice to more effectively communicate. We can be good, but with insight we can become great.
When we teach, we may be using our voice for an hour at a time, maybe an hour and a half. Nowadays, to earn a living, many people teach upwards of 15 classes a week. It is a lot to ask of our untrained and habitual speaking voice. We can only benefit from developing methods which protect, train, and sustain the voice, deepening our connection to the primary tool we use to educate our students.
No, I have worked with professionals in numerous industries to help improve their public speaking.
"Sarah Bell as a voice coach for my yoga teaching has been eye-opening! Sarah dedicates her ear and expertise to evaluating hours of my classes so that she can identify the ticks and crutch words that distract from my message as a teacher. She gave me exercises I use to warm up my voice, and highlights ways for me to be more effective so that I can better connect with my students. She brought humor and focus to the experience. Her perspective is original and her notes will continue to be useful.”
"I can’t help to sit during the teacher training and think to myself - “Speaking of Yoga” helped me out tremendously to understand the importance of "voice.” "
"Thank you so much for such a beautiful and inspiring workshop! It's incredibly difficulty to give a snapshot of how breath and the voice work but you did it with such ease and clarity. I've added the warm-ups you gave us to my morning practice and I've noticed even more resonance, especially going through the chakra sounds. I would love to keep in touch as I begin to explore yoga and voice in my own work."
