Embodied Voice Care

Partner with me for Embodied Voice Care that reconnects you with your body, heart and voice.

What is Embodied Voice Care?

Embodied Voice Care weaves together movement and voice care practices that support you in rebuilding a relationship with your body, heart and voice. These sessions support voice optimization, they are not meant to be a replacement for voice therapy, but they may support you in maintaining gains from voice therapy.

Embodied Voice Care

Embodied voice care might be for you if…

  • you’d like support to create a voice care plan to optimize your voice
  • you’re looking to feel more connected to your body, heart and voice, but need support with the how!
  • you’d like to feel more confident about your voice
  • you’re feeling alone with your voice issues
  • you feel your voice isn’t perfect enough
  • you’re curious about the voice-vagus nerve connection and ways to partner with your nervous system
  • you’re doing voice therapy to rehabilitate your voice and need support with maintenance, these sessions are not a replacement for voice therapy!

What to expect

Embodied Voice Care sessions weave together Qoya inspired movement and voice care techniques and vocal wellness education.

The initial session is part discussion of your relationship with your voice, part movement and vocal play. We’ll explore a variety of practices to see what works for you. Together we’ll create a voice care plan which may include 1:1 sessions, vocal wellness workshops and/or group classes.

Whether it’s a 1:1 or group session, expect to spend time noticing sensation in the body. Expect to make silly sounds during vocal play, I’ll make them along with you. Expect to express yourself through movement, there’s no way to do it wrong! Expect to focus less on how the movement looks and your voice sounds and more on how it feels.

Expect that voice care is often a spiral process, sometimes messy. It’s not linear, so we take an integrative approach to find what works for your body, heart and voice.

Learning how to take care of my voice! Why was I not taught this in school? So grateful Martha’s offering these tools in an accessible and empowering way.

I highly recommend Martha’s work, as she is a skillful and natural facilitator of sacred movement and the opening of the voice channels. Her style is natural and catalyzing. She creates a safe space where true transformation can happen. She embodies what she teaches and this is deeply felt.

Martha’s playful spirit ignites one’s curiosity and brings a much needed levity to the exploration of movement, voice, and the experience of being an embodied being. What I admire most about Martha is how she creates intentional spaces for individuals to be vulnerable; offering support and insight along the path of self-awareness

Why Partner With Me?

I know it can be daunting to work on voice issues alone, that’s why I support people both individually and in groups so we can do voice care together. I take an integrative approach, weaving together voice care techniques and somatic movement practices, drawing from my work as Qoya Inspired Movement teacher and speech language pathologist.

We acknowledge the land we are meeting on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.
