Free your voice, balance your body and your mind. Develop a relationship with your creative muse and find your lyrics. Linda's Mining for Gold: Connect with Your Creativity and Write Meaningful Lyrics Exercise will help you find your song and discover your inner musician.



Creativity is what makes us human and we are all creative all the time. With this principle in mind, Linda has been teaching and mentoring in the performing arts for more than thirty years. She works in numerous modalities to help individuals develop a deep and satisfying relationship with their inner artist.


With her professional background in acting and coaching actors, and a Masters of Education in Arts and Creativity, Linda integrates experience and knowledge to help people move through their fear of performing. Fear lives in the mind, and fear of taking creative risks is enhanced by negative self-judgement. Confidence replaces 'performance anxiety' through meditation and body-mind awareness.



Linda is a certified yoga teacher with a professional background in the Alexander technique, and well as vocal and performance improvisation. Her restorative and heart-opening yoga classes are designed to enhance awareness and balance between body, mind and spirit. Yoga in all its forms is the process of connecting us to our greater sense of purpose, whatever we aspire to create or to be or become.
