“The voice is a vehicle to discovering our inner truth, it shows up in our sound and our singing because it is so intimately connected to our hearts”
“Everything about our true essence and who we are, we knew when we were children”, says Lakshmi Marfil. However for most people I work with, someone has said, “no you can’t be that or no you can’t have that”, so it’s natural when this happens to shut down and stop expressing one’s truth, one’s true nature. Some even became “another version” of who they were supposed to be. They became blocked artists (suppressing their inner creativity and freedom) and blocked their true voice and creative self expression. However, through my work with my clients over many years, I have seen that with these vocal sound sessions (through singing and working with the voice), we unblock the voice and return it to it’s true sound and power. I support my clients in allowing them to unlock their sound, their “true sound” and to help them stand in the truth of who they are. Allowing them to be comfortable within themselves, allowing their true sound to sing!
My mission is to help my clients fall in love with their own voice, to have a newfound freedom to open and take new risks with their voice. I offer support and guidance, so then they can confidently sing out in the world. We work together to unblock the voice that has been stopped by fear and feelings of unworthiness. My work supports my clients in opening their voice, giving it full safety in its expression and giving them confidence to be able to sing. With this work, I find my clients discover, that they have everything they need to fulfill their dream.
I have seen it time and time again, once we connect our hearts to our true authentic voice, the VOICE loves to express. It loves to flow. It loves to sing! All forms of your creativity will begin to open. Yes, your true voice! The one that resonates and feels like home. The one that is YOU! The one that is the truth of who you are.

Here’s what some clients have to say:
WOW! here’s a new testimonial that just came in from Murielle. This is why I love what I do ❤
“In my first session with Lakshmi, I felt like something that has been deeply rooted and blocking my expression in many areas of my life, unblocked and flew out of me… I had one of the deepest spiritual releases in my life. I woke up the next (and many days there after) singing and so happy to hear my own voice again. I felt comfortable letting my voice free and being truly present. My session with Lakshmi has shifted me in such ways that until this very day, I find myself feeling unstoppable! Before working with her, little did I know the freedom of our voices represented the freedom of every other aspect of our lives. Now all the right doors I’ve been waiting to walk through are swinging wide open like a musical symphony. Wow! and that was just my first session with Lakshmi. I am so eager to experience what comes next and excited for my next experience healing my self expression and communication channels. See you very very soon! Thank you so much Lakshmi! You must know, that you are an Angel! Even a million thanks is not enough but thank you!” Murielle Elsa Zinsou
“Lakshmi Marfíl really helped me learn some tools that were a big part in my transformational process and healing. I was in a raw, beautiful but struggling point in my life when I met her. She helped me open up to the possibility of healing and sharing my voice, which is now a vital part of my purpose and existence as a healer and teacher. There was a deep humility that came and comes along with the vulnerability of sharing with her, and if you let it, it could change your life in a beautiful way. I love her SO MUCH and will continue to work with her and hopefully collaborate our hearts together one day!” Adriana Rizzolo
“I’ve taken a few voice lessons with Lakshmi Marfíl and it was a transformative experience. I wanted to start singing and my issue was fear of opening my voice and being heard. She has a way of making you feel totally safe and comfortable exploring your own unique sound in a playful way. Not only did we do scales to open my voice and play with different ranges, we also did positive affirmations that really helped me to let go into the process and just go for it! Unlocking my voice has also helped me speak my truth in life and not be afraid of my potential or being heard. It was a life changing experience and I hope to continue to explore my voice with her.” Lula
“I love working with Lakshmi Marfil! Her combination of intuitive coaching and Reiki have helped me to identify unknown blockages to my fully experiencing my worthiness of joy. It’s been an immense gift to be free of these blockages. I look forward to continuing this work to restore my singing voice, my true joy”. Anasuya Isis
“I started singing lessons with Lakshmi Marfil because I wanted to get more comfortable with my voice. I was less concerned about the technical, and more determined to drop the made-up belief that “I am not a singer.” Lakshmi and I met once per week with homework in between. Each session was unique. Lakshmi was warm and challenging (She pushed me out of my comfort zone, which is a good and necessary thing). I came away from the experience with more confidence and awareness of what I am capable of – in singing and in my life”. Katie Y.
“This is why I love working with my private students..It is so Fulfilling to be part of their TRANSFORMATIONAL process. It is my commitment to the “Power of Sound” and helping people connect their hearts with their true authentic voice.”
Sound sessions are $120 an hour.
The Power of your “TRUE VOICE” workshop-April 29 (4-6p) at Veroyoga in Brooklyn.
A testimonial from a past student:
‘This was my first time taking a workshop with Lakshmi, and it was a beautiful surprise. For me, singing is about expressing one’s spirit, one’s feeling, and fundamentally, about expressing some kind of love for life. You can have the best technique in the world, but if you don’t share from the heart, there is something missing. It can be scary! It’s not easy! And that is exactly the work — and play! — that Lakshmi helps you to develop: to sing from your heart and soul.
I was a little nervous, because I have minimal experience singing in front of others, but her warmth and experience allowed me to open my mouth, and whatever was supposed to, emerged! The workshop connected me to a childlike source of melody and vulnerability, and something was nourished there. On the way home, I composed a new song. Thank you Lakshmi! I look forward to the next workshop!’ Maria Patricia
