Private lessons/Sessions

I started teaching classical guitar when I finished my Royal Academy of London studies 23 years ago; then came English language lessons after completing my English Literature University studies, as well as post-graduate studies of Translation, Interpreting and Subtitling. Then came Vocal lessons as I continuously study with different teachers traveling around the globe. As this particular instrument came into my life in 2018, I have started offering Handpan lessons.

I am here on this planet to evolve into my full potential as a human being. By refocusing inside me, I experience a state of unity with my True Self characterised by one quality: peace. People I meet along my path very often tell me that I radiate trust, respect, open communication and flexibility. For me it is pure joy to be your active listener, to provide information, to make suggestions for your orientation and to help you establish healthy life connections and relationships.

I travel around the globe all the time and I am constantly on the move. I prefer lessons in person rather than online, because we can experience more clearly the vibrations of our instruments (including the voice!) So let me know where it would be possible for you to meet me and try to synchronise our schedules in the best environmentally-friendly way possible.

Vocal Encouragement & Singing Lessons
(online and in person)

Life and sound is interwoven. My passion is to share my discoveries and assist you to find your own personal way of integrating the relationship to the sound of your voice into your daily life. I am a soundscaper. My whole life is based on this notion. I can recreate any sound with just my voice. I walk in nature and listen carefully, often recording sounds, and then adding them to my songs on my laptop. The sounds I recreate help me in a number of different ways. They help me release, they provide joy, sometimes they are challenging, they can be a good mirror of my internal state. Tapping into sounds and their recreation often leads to song; sometimes new song and sometimes ancestral song that just comes straight from nowhere. Or so it seems. This whole process helps me achieve making the distance between one thought and the next bigger until I find myself in a continually meditative state.

We can create together an individual voice program for you based on the tools I have to offer.

I am working with Vocal Empowerment including Transpersonal Mentoring for anyone who feels there is potential in you to open or develop your voice and for anyone who wants to connect to their true essence.

In our sessions, we will combine breath work, humming, sighing, guided meditations, voice practices, devotional song, songwriting, individual life coaching and mentoring.

Finding our natural and individual tone and note in speech or song is essential in life and can bring forth shifts and transformation in all areas of life.

Handpan Lessons (online and in person)


I am so excited the Hang or Handpan came into my life; I first became acquainted to this instrument in 2003 in one of my trips to Switzerland. Finally after years, I have the opportunity to compose my songs and arrange traditional Cypriot, Greek and Bulgarian tunes on the handpan. It completely changed and reinforced my perspective & approach to music in general!

SOUND HEALING

1-on-1 Inward Journey sessions
All you need to do is just relax…

Reaching this deep relaxation state without sleeping, allows for deep inner exploration to take place, for body integration and astral travel to receive messages, see clearer paths and be in the flow.

Equipped with my voice, singing bowls and various other instruments, these sessions are designed to create a safe space and a state of bliss. In this way we are enhancing the self-regulation of the body, we are tuning the nervous system and affecting the biochemistry to support the healing process.

CIRCLE-SINGING ¬ VOICE ACTIVATION THROUGH NADA YOGA

We come together in a circle.
We enter a meditative practice, “The Yoga of Sound”, exploring the inner workings of the Voice.
Gradually we start to sing with grace and tune in.
Before you know it, we enter a different space inside ourselves, feeling free and open to share our voice and feel our heart.
¬¬ This is a group music game inspired by the ancient Indian alchemy of Raga, by African heritage singing, by traditional Balkan roots and Middle-eastern soul-speaking melodies, where we use the voice as our only instrument.
¬¬ Participants will work with voice experimentation and sound production, improvisation and expression through spontaneous interaction.
¬¬ Within a safe environment, we will have the opportunity to discover the full potential of our voice and reconnect with the music nature that exists within us all, right from the moment we are born.
¬¬ We use the vibrations of our voice’s sounds for relaxation, release and self-improvement in our personal journey. When using correct breathing, we achieve stability, better focus and greater awareness.
¬¬ Conscious breathing causes an emotionally calming effect. It is one of the most effective methods for reducing tension and hyperactivity of the brain.

HOLD ME CLOSE :: Self-discovery through voice, breath, intimacy

Open your hands, if you want to be held. ~ Rumi

Grace // Intimacy // Eros // Insight

Join Marlia in this 3-hour workshop, if you wish to activate your creativity, inner abundance & personal power and discover a deeper part of your being. The part that lies beyond your thoughts, constructs and created personalities. The part that we know very intimately. We want to experience this part in us, see it in others and share this experience together.

Who are you?

How well do you connect with others?

Can you show your vulnerability to a stranger?

Are you OK with eye gazing and hugging other people?

Can you take care of your boundaries and communicate them?

Can you take responsibility for your inner processes?

These questions can lead you to a revealing and satisfying journey of self-discovery and deep insight.

OUR FUNDAMENTALS DURING THE WORKSHOP:


¬ Awakening your True Self who embodies wisdom, great power and a proper understanding of life
¬ Opening your intuition and inner perception
¬ Breaking stereotypes and barriers about intimacy
¬ Strengthening your Trust in You, in Life and in your Body
¬ Harnessing energy and raising your energetic vibration
¬ Embracing your highest potential and show up in this world from your Soul

HOLD ME CLOSE ¬ SELF-LOVE & MY LOVE FOR OTHERS

Intimacy with the present moment allows for real comprehension and connection. If I wish to invite deep connection, it’s all about my ability to focus my attention and become intimate with the current set of circumstances.
We rewire how to feel oneself and connect to another’s heart, how to make oneself vulnerable and open to intimate interaction, experiencing relaxed heart opening.
¬¬ This experiential workshop offers a potent set of tools for inviting presence, connecting through the heart, and exploring the realms of sexual polarity and deep connection in your own life and with others.
¬¬ Participants will dive into their personal understanding of their own journey, as well as receive the tools to guide others.
¬¬ Within a safe environment, we are inspired to achieve alchemical transformation and healing, a place to practice the art of RISING. This event is for all genders, all bodies and all expression of human.
¬¬ We use the vibrations of our voice’s sounds for relaxation, release and self-improvement in our personal journey. When using correct breathing, we achieve stability, better focus and greater awareness.
¬¬ Conscious breathing causes an emotionally calming effect. It is one of the most effective methods for reducing tension and hyperactivity of the brain.

OUR TOOLS

Humming // Yoga // Blindfold rituals // Embodiment // Tantra // Breath Work // Sighing // Ancient Wisdom // Human spirals // Sacred Dance // Nature // Voice Activation // Massage

MYSTIC DANCE ¬ Movement & Whirling workshop

What you seek, is also seeking you. ~ Rumi

Revitalise // Balance // Freedom // Rebirth

Join Marlia in a 3-hour workshop to discover the power and mystery of ancient dances, rituals and ancestral voicing – a gateway for self-growth and spiritual transformation – through movement, music, love, whirling and stillness. Be moved by beautiful, sacred music.

OUR FUNDAMENTALS DURING THE WORKSHOP:
¬ Awakening deeper connection to your body
¬ Merging spirituality (Spirit) and Body (Matter)
¬ Negotiating choices in improvised movement dialogues
¬ Remembering the sacredness of the Mystics, the Feminine and the Masculine, the ancient Greeks
¬ Harnessing energy and raising your energetic vibration
¬ Healing traumas and embracing your highest potential

Through a regenerative practice that can remain with us days after the workshop, we will use different movement techniques to investigate our presence in our bodies, on the floor, against the wall, with a partner, with multiple partners and in stillness. In a safe environment, participants can practice heightened awareness and responsibility rooting their physical awareness, developing the sense of gravity and dynamic alignment, enabling weight sharing/balancing, exploring the sense of touch and vision, learning how to move together in physical contact and how to read adapt to another body in motion.

Our rivers will climb up mountains as we will move into a sustained whirling movement to sharpen our senses, our capacity to focus, connect our body and mind and enter the state of creative presence. Additionally to the fact that whirling improves balance, focus and perception as well as the overall regulation of metabolism, we will explore how it feels to die a little before we die, to get reborn, to release whatever energy no longer serves us, to relax and open our heart, body and mind.

No experience required – nevertheless it is preferable that the participants are engaged in mindfulness.

OUR TOOLS

Movement // Drumming // Poetry // Contact improvisation // Sacred Dance // Breathing meditation // Sighing // Ancient Wisdom // Human spirals // Sacred geometry // Voice Activation // Nature

I am using English and the universal language of music to speak to you during the workshop

Please bring soft comfortable sporty clothes (T-shirt, long pants) and avoid having a big heavy meal before the session

CACAO BLESSED : : Ceremonial co-creation

Do not feel lonely; the entire universe is inside you. ~ Rumi

Health // Flow // Heart // Mood enhancer

Our ancestors have left us their own way of practicing spirituality and their way to connect. This is a celebration of abundance. Let’s co-create this Sacred Space.

Join Marlia for a sacred ceremony with the heart medicine of Cacao, if you wish to travel and enter into new depths of your inner space. With meditation and sonic journeying, we dive deeper into our individual and collective processes, unconscious programs and life’s designs, honouring the Cacao spirit so it may listen to our intentions and prayers for the ceremony.

OUR FUNDAMENTALS DURING THE WORKSHOP:


¬ Exploring the infinite potential of our individual & collective voice, the most powerful instrument on Earth
¬ Awakening deeper connection to your body
¬ Surrendering to an ecstatic dance where we remember our connection to this cosmic web of power that runs through all things
¬ Engaging with the sacred wisdom of our hearts, making the path clearer
¬ Moving stagnated energy through the body and clearing subconscious patterns
¬ Harnessing energy and raising our energetic vibration
¬ Letting go of fear and shame and trusting our intuition and our feelings

Through this medicine we have a chance to let go of what doesn’t serve us any more and allow the endless flow of the universe to take its course by letting go of our minds and dropping into our hearts.

It is believed that cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Cacao is a powerful heart-opener, increasing blood flow significantly with a ceremonial dose. Its gentle, supportive energy allows people to expand and experience heightened states. It will add a delicious, rich, heart-opening energy to our gathering. As we let the cacao do its work we will get in deeper touch with each other and ourselves.

We will dance through the 4 elements in perfect synchronisation with the rhythm of our hearts. We will use the power of sacred tones and free sound expression to unlock vibrational keys and ancestral melodies from deep within our beings. Our co-created sound can echo through our collective intentions and can create expanded states of consciousness and a deep place of healing.

Practical info:
¬ Avoid eating a heavy meal for an hour before as it will slow down the Cacao absorption in the body
¬ Avoid caffeine in the hours before as Cacao contains thiobromine which is a similar chemical compound and a small amount of caffeine, but together will give you quite an unwanted buzziness
¬ You do not need any experience in singing, meditation or in any practice. Just show up and be open to listen deeply.
