Integrate your body, breath, voice and imagination

A holistic approach to voice involves every aspect of the tangible self, as well as a range of intangibles. Practical exploration of all these elements is a deep process. It is fulfilling, transformative and leads to creative, intellectual, and spiritual growth.

Mallika & Catherine

"I am a huge fan of Mallika’s. Let me point out that her work spans private and academic teaching, and performance and writing, as well as lots of organization and innovation. She understands and teaches the work on a very deep level. I think, ...when it fits into the master calendar, she is ready to host and lead a certification in India."
