MEET THE COACH
Ariane Leanza Heinz believes your voice is as unique as your fingerprints and has the potential to be clearly heard when exposed to the right training.
Unfortunately, people don’t pay very much attention to their voices, and don’t understand the implication a voice can have on the perceptions others have of the person or the company they represent.
We are using our voices everyday of our lives, and still there is no class in school to teach us how to efficiently use it.
Ariane has made her life’s work to support people with their voices and success.
Starting with breathing techniques (MDH Breathing Coordination®), aligning your spine and ribcage with minimal effort, she will bring you to recognition of your own inner breathing system, which is directly link to the nervous system and affects our ability to publicly present or speak.
Ariane’s classes are based on her core values, namely, “presence”, “efficiency” and “honesty with oneself”. She will bring you on a journey of discovery of your own unique inner voice and teach you the techniques to bring it out.
Ariane guides people of all professions: professors, artists, anchors, speakers, engineers, searchers in her private practice in Seefeld, Zürich, they come to discover their voices, gain confidence and presence. With the different techniques she uses, each client gets to experience a “new voice”.
