Would you like to improve your voice? 
Do you experience neck, shoulder, or jaw tension?
Do you have frequent headaches?
Does your voice sometimes feel strained, too loud/soft, or muffled?
What would it mean to you to “find your voice,” or to “give voice” to something?

Physical, mental, and emotional elements combine to create your unique voice and self-expression in the world. When you find your voice, you can improve your overall experience of moving, sensing, feeling, and “performing” in all aspects of your life.

TESTIMONIAL:  “This was a really fun workshop, and not just because the fabulous MaryBeth Davison Smith runs it. Don’t let the voice stuff fool you. This workshop helped me find confidence in myself. Feldenkrais has a tendency to remind me that my rebellious body is there for me more than I know. The movement simply made me aware of it.” –Tracey N., Dallas

Ages 14+.
