"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
