This is not a normal singing class.
This isn't really about singing scales or performing songs. Yes, we'll resonate our vocal chords and send vibration from our bodies into the world (aka sing). But this class is something new - the adventure of discovering and expressing your authentic, vulnerable, and vibrational voice.
I believe that every human has access to a singing voice and the idea that we need to sound perfect before we're allowed to use this tool is ridiculous and harmful. I've been to many countries around the world and not even North Korea, Zimbabwe, or the UK has as shut down of a singing voice as what I've found in the U.S. It's time for that to change. Our wild, feminine, and embodied voice deserves to be felt and shared. Anything less is fear based and stupid.
You may have been singing all your life, you may only sing when alone, or maybe you've never tried. It doesn't matter. An embodied voice that expresses emotion, clarifies boundaries, articulates desires, plays in freedom, and sings for the pure joy of expression, is what I want to help you develop.
We're going deep into the inner voice, the wildest, the most innocent, most creative, and most truthful part of you.
My motivation for Singing Circles.
I teach from my own experience...
My nerves, inner critic, and perfectionism used to prevent from sharing authentically.
I was told my voice wasn't good enough to sing and I believed it.
My throat used to hurt with tension and unexpressed emotion.
I had a hard time setting boundaries and as a result I often felt unseen and unsafe.
I was too timid to share my creative voice with the world.
And I teach from my own ongoing growth...
I now recognize and work with my patterns of self-judgment, projection, and self sabotage.
I love to use my singing voice and I share it whenever I want.
I feel effective and in my body when I use my voice.
I am able to set effective boundaries and use my voice to keep me safe.
I share the creative side of me with the world.

How this work affected others.
The way you hold space made it feel safer to explore emotions and dynamics that previously felt a bit too far out of my comfort zone to play with. I love the free-flowing, personable and interactive way you naturally teach.
I really feel like what benefited me most was having my voice, and the expression in it, honored by another person…and that it gave me permission to open it up.
I'm so grateful for you and the work we did together so that I could show up for myself in this most profound way that is so simple it's hard to believe it would actually work.
Lyra Zabriskie is a supremely talented teacher, someone who has a rare magic gift to truly teach through zoom, using it as an interactivity platform where users feel heard, engaged, and seen.
As someone who had the privilege to sit in on one of Lyra’s webinars, I can honestly say that this woman is beyond talented. Her magic is strong and her ability to uplift women is immeasurable. She will push you to grow in the most loving of ways.
You hold an amazing space and capacity. I wanted you to know that I experienced a big shift into vulnerability with my voice which is very big for me.
It was amazing (not exaggerating). So may things I want to put into practice! I’m so happy I found you. And will share about you to anyone who listens.
Voice class is a joy for my daughter. An opportunity for her to explore her authenticity. She is learning to center herself, and then to speak, shout, sing, or demand from that center.
I feel different! I feel an opening and a new strength and confidence inside. I heard myself talk and I could hear my voice was different and I felt more grounded in my words!

I'm so excited about this work. I've been dreaming of it for years. And now I've got the understanding, the experience, and the courage to play with you. Singing Circles is a fun and encouraging space to explore and express your incredible voice. If you feel pulled, called, an urge, a surge of excitement, a tingling, an inner yes, etc. then give it a try. My desire is to lead powerful women into their birthright of their embodied self expression so they can change their lives and the world. That you?
