Stephanie Heidemann, Licensed Massage Therapist since 2001 and singer/performer integrates the healing and arts together in her unique modality, “Authentic Voicework”. Stephanie attained her B.A. in Expressive Arts Therapy from Indiana University (1999); interned with Developmental Movement Analyst Fanchon Shur (Growth in Motion Cntr) and later studied classical voice technique with the notable Mezzo-Soprano Brenda Boozer (NY Metropolitan Opera).
Authentic Voicework is a playful & powerful modality of Expressive Arts in sound and motion. It tunes in to the essence of being, through the voice. Participants explore the connection to the authentic self through vocalizing. AV is the ‘Yoga of the Voice’, stretching and removing obstructions around the voice, changing conceptions of who we are and how we allow ourselves to express ourselves as unique, dynamic beings. AV originates from a vast array of Stephanie’s influences: Classical Voice Technique, Expressive Arts Therapy, Voice-Movement therapy, Singing play, World Folksong, Improvisation, Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation, Massage/Bodywork, & Feldenkreis.
