The Voice Work

get to know your voice

Lisa has been a professional actor since 1992. Her career led her to play on the stages of The Shaw Festival, Atlantic Theatre Festival, Chemainus Theatre Festival, Manitoba Theatre Centre. She has a deep respect for the process of rehearsal and performance. So much so, that it led her to learn how to guide and support students in their quest to be professional performers.

The Voice Work is inspired by many folk, including Kirsten Linklater's 'Freeing The Natural Voice' teachings, meditation and mindfulness studies, a basic understanding of skeletal, muscular and vocal anatomy, Richard Pochinko's Baby Clown training, as well as, Alisa Kort and the Breath Experience.

Lisa's training includes BFA Acting from UBC and an MFA Acting from York University; The Royal Conservatory Artist-Educator Foundations Course; The Month Long Intensive at Shakespeare&Co; National Voice Intensive; The International Voice Intensive with Richard Armstrong at The Banff Centre; Baby Clown with John Turner; 200hr YYoga Certification, Yin Yoga certification.

Yin, Meditation, and The Voice Work

These three styles of exploration and expansion are a GREAT combination, I have found.

Partly, because listening to one self is an important part to finding your voice.

Partly, because quieting down and being still is another important aspect of expressing your voice.

And, partly, because discovering abandoned and never known physical, psychological, emotional landscapes is another important piece in mining one's voice for hidden gems.

At KarmaTeachers I offer Yin classes on Wednesdays from 5-6pm and Thursdays from 7-8am. I also offer a Meditation class on Sundays from 8-9am. All classes at KarmaTeachers are #free or #bydonation.
