Enhance Your Speech: AN INTRO TO ACCENT REDUCTION AND ARTICULATION

"This class was exceptional! It helped me learn about breathing correctly and the basics of speech using vowels and consonants properly. It is a great class for anyone looking to speak clearer or correct accents." - Colleen C.

Do people always understand you? Are you frequently asked to repeat yourself or have a hard time formulating your thoughts on the fly?

In high-stakes professional or personal interactions, these can be costly impositions. Being heard and making an impression is fundamental to building and advancing relationships.

Speech is a combination of physical movements paired with strong breath and vocal production. That’s often easier said than done! Don’t let an accent or lazy articulation get in your way.

In this class you’ll learn the basics of Standard American Speech and the keys to enhance overall articulation. You’ll leave this experience with a strong foundation of how to empower clarity in communication, tools for greater articulation, and exercises to continue after the class is complete.

Now is the time to discover your full voice and unlock your full potential!

Breath, Body, Brain: VOICE, YOGA, PUBLIC SPEAKING

"This workshop was honestly a one-of-a-kind experience. I have always been a very shy and insecure person when it comes to public speaking or even participating in group-class settings. I was even hesitant to sign up for this workshop based on my fears. I would wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to everyone with any type of social anxiety or fear of public speaking." - Maria L.

Public speaking is one of life’s great fear inducing activities. This fear manifests in myriad ways: shortness of breath, shaking hands, body, or voice, redness in the cheeks, sweating, loss of focus and mental clarity … I’ve heard it all and my answer is always this – Are you breathing?


"Breath, Body and Brain is a transformative learning experience for public speakers, educators, sales professionals and anyone who uses their voice as the main vehicle for their success. The exercises we did and the information Minna shared heightened my understanding of how my body impacts my voice and took all the information I knew about being an effective speaker to the next level." - Lawrese B.

Welcome to Breath Body Brain. An innovative approach to professional development.

A supple strong body promotes supple strong breath which creates availability for a supple strong brain.

In this training we will explore the concept of limiting beliefs that manifest in inhibited breath, bodily tension, and compromised cognition. We explore moving beyond those limitations into a space of possibility through the integration of three practices: yoga, an extensive voice/body practice, and practical exploration of public speaking fundamentals.

This workshop will provide an unshakable foundation on which you can layer all future success.

What you can expect from this training:

  • a meditation to identify limiting beliefs

  • a brief Ashtanga based yoga practice
  • an extended vocal practice
  • engagement exercises
  • constructing a narrative of possibility
  • presentation of narrative with personalized feedback

Why are you still single? You have value. You are smart, funny, creative, thoughtful. Anyone would be lucky to know you, let alone date you. So ... What's missing? Why ARE you still single?

Learn the fundamentals of how to reveal your essence so it is undeniable and magnetic. Let others discover how amazing you already are.

Are you insecure, but read as arrogant? Do you smile with openness, but use a shy voice? Align your intention and your presentation. Empower yourself with knowledge on how to be your most authentic self and finally land the one you love. Find the SPARK you've been waiting for. #daretospark

Breath, Body, Brain: Voice, Yoga, and Public Speaking

This workshop will provide an unshakable foundation on which you can layer all future success.

Welcome to Breath Body Brain. An innovative approach to professional development.

Public speaking is one of life’s great fear inducing activities. This fear manifests in myriad ways: shortness of breath, shaking hands, body, or voice, redness in the cheeks, sweating, loss of focus and mental clarity … I’ve heard it all and my answer is always this – Are you breathing?

A supple strong body promotes supple strong breath which creates availability for a supple strong brain.

In this training we will explore the concept of limiting beliefs that manifest in inhibited breath, bodily tension, and compromised cognition. We explore moving beyond those limitations into a space of possibility through the integration of three practices: yoga, an extensive voice/body practice, and practical exploration of public speaking fundamentals.

What you can expect from this training:

  • a meditation to identify limiting beliefs
  • a brief ashtanga based asana practice
  • an extended vocal practice
  • engagement exercises
  • constructing a narrative of possibility
  • presentation of narrative with personalized feedback

Enhance your speech: intro to accent reduction and articulation

Do you struggle with being understood? Are you constantly asked to repeat yourself?

In high-stakes professional or personal interactions, this can be a costly imposition. Being heard is fundamental to building and advancing relationships. Don’t let an accent or lazy articulation get in your way.

In this class you will learn the basics of Standard American Speech and keys to enhance overall articulation. You will walk away from our time with a strong foundation of how to empower clarity in communication, tools for greater articulation, and exercises to continue after the class is complete.

What are you waiting for? Now is the time to discover your full voice and unlock your full potential!
