Embodied Voice Sessions with Maria

It is a joy to help people reconnect with how to sing from the right place, to connect with their soul voice. I do not train people to sing like someone else. I simply pass on the tools I have gained over 21 years of singing professionally, combined with 14 years of bio energy transformational energy training with a master in Bali. I love to share the tools which will enhance another person’s song, happiness, connection and life force. You will gain not only a stronger empowering authentic voice, but your own source of healing through sound led by Prana/breath of life.

 

You will start connecting the dots and really feel how to connect to your body and the journey which produces the sound within you. I currently offer in person 1.5hr vocal sessions on a Monday, Wed and Thur in Hove. I will be opening my sessions to an online option soon. If you feel called to this, I invite you to get in touch via email or a quick conversation.

 

I will be offering very soon an introductory discounted online taster session.

🙏🏼🌺 love, Maria

whilst also making it fun and friendly! I recommend!"

"I found my 1-2-1 sessions with Maria extremely impactful. She has such a kind yet powerful presence, and really embodies what she teaches. She is deeply passionate about helping you connect to your own voice and has a variety of tools and such wisdom in how to achieve this. She meets you where you're at, and being someone who has had my own struggles with my voice, I felt very held in the process of opening up - even though it's only the beginning. Thank you for all your guidance, and I look forward to working together again when I'm back!"

JOURNEY

Maria Payne Vlahogiannis is a Celtic/Grecian singer-songwriter, embodied vocal singing coach (1:1 & groups), harmonium player and drummer. She has been singing professionally for over 20 years playing throughout the UK and Europe. Projects include theatre productions to choirs and band projects in the UK, Germany and Poland. Maria’s influences are from a huge cultural melting pot across many eras and styles.

She began in musical theatre and worked in theatre for a few more years after completing her BTEC Diploma in the Performing Arts, with the Chicken Shed Theatre company. There she learned to work with people of varying abilities. Here she discovered everyone has something to bring when it comes to creativity and communication, everyone has a voice. After that learning phase, she entered the music scene and toured and worked with many producers and bands from the UK to Poland.

Although Maria's healing journey began with the performing arts at an early age of her childhood going from a child that was almost mute to a singer with quite the volume!  There was still much trauma to be shifted within, the next level of her energy healing journey really began at the end of her last major European tour in 2009. The energy work led her to an ashram in Bali, to discover strong energy practices including: flower blessing/offering ceremony, various meditation tools, pranic deep breathing, mudras, active bio energy kundalini movement practice and sacred Sanskrit mantras to heal, cleanse, protect and uplift the heart. 14 years of energy work with the Balinese and senior westerners transformed her voice, healed her womb, heart and restored her energy field to the high joyful energy levels people experience through her presence and voice today.

 

Maria now shares her experience and tools through her voice and sessions infused with her deep life changing kundalini meditation practice. For the last 7 years her main vocal work has been as part of the loved acoustic duo Scott & Maria, and as a holistic 1:1 vocal coach, working on vocal blockages, deep diaphragm breathing, use of the lips/tongue/mouth, body awareness whilst singing, Indian influenced scales, vocal play  and holding space for what comes up during sessions for the individual.

In 2022 Maria began to spread her vocal 1:1 work to larger group workshops;  including delivering:

 

- an embodied mixed gender  group voice workshop at the  Ecstatic Dance Festival Summer 2022 & Autumn residential retreat (part of Urubu School of Transformational Arts community) at Osho Leela to over 70 people - view Link.

- an embodied vocal healing session for women's gatherings at the Enchanted Glade Wild Spa -  view link.

- women's Weaving Voices collaborative voice workshop retreat  in Brighton - view link.

- regular Brighton holistic dance events vocal sound journeys, guiding mixed gender groups to explore their voices at the end of  ecstatic dance sessions with western heart songs and Hindu Sanskrit mantras - view link.
