From today you will find in all bookshops, even online, my new eBook titled “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice”.
It’s a 100-page eBook that includes much of the experience I’ve gained over the years while working and by receiving dozens and dozens of emails every day with desperate or disillusioned requests for help from people who somehow are no longer able to use their voices in everyday life.
My social commitment has been known for a long time. In addition to the various activities that go unnoticed, I always reply in person to all the emails I receive and I always offer everyone a voice assessment session directly with me. This may seem little, but on the practical side it keeps me very busy.
Based on the emails I receive, it seems that the DIY training and especially the tutorial videos on YouTube are at the basis of many jeopardized voices. Since it would be reckless for me to point out everything as “harmful” or “incompetent”, I preferred to give you a way to figure out by yourself when something is definitely to be avoided and not professional.
In the attempt to “save” at least some of these people in the first place, since the topic of “vocal health” is very important to me, I decided to make this ebook also available free of charge via my website.
I ask you to help me spread it as much as possible through your social networks, your blogs or any other website. The only recommendation is to share the link where to download the eBook and not the eBook itself. Sharing the link means sharing this page:
and not its content, because the book is protected by copyright and sharing the PDF would cause you unnecessary problems.
Here is where you can download the free eBook “The Art of Keeping a Healthy Voice” by Mylena Vocal Coach.
The eBook includes my 5 golden rules, 28 practical tips and 25 testimonials so that you can understand the magnitude of the problem.
For those who prefer paper or use a Kindle device, I asked the publisher to release it at a very low price, so you’ll find it really cheap.
The voice of New York is the most widespread Italian newspaper in the United States and today was published an interview of me made by the talented Liliana Rossano.
The interview is very long and embraces different aspects of my career, not only the most recent ones that have seen me featured by Learn Italy as “Italian excellence” in the world in the presence of the Consul General in New York Francesco Genuardi and the Deputy Secretary General of the Italian General Committee Abroad, Silvana Mangione, then televised by Rai.
Here is the link to original Inteview to the Voice Guru Mylena Vocal Coach
Mylena trains people’s voices and being a vocal coach is her core business. During her 30+ years of experience, she has cultivated a holistic and unique way to interact with the human voice and its vibration and the power of it.
Everything that exists around us is a form of vibration, and so our voice is, therefore, our main bridge to connect directly to spiritual awareness.
Mylena’s successful work and her international research have renowned her as the “Voice Guru.” Her practice was discovered to resonate to the lost principles of Nāda Yoga, an ancient and forgotten form of yoga (nāda in Sanskrit means vibration).
With a clear vision, Mylena separates vibration into two worlds. The external vibration (ahata in Sanskrit), is what can be transmitted to our consciousness via our senses. Then we have the internal vibration what Mylena defines as our Inborn Voice, (Anahata in Sanskrit). This is something unique to each one of us, and no one but you can do the deep personal work to access this gift.
While the Inborn Voice resonates directly with the source of our True Self, the ability to reach inner peace is not available to us if we are not attuned to its presence in our everyday life.
Mylena will team with Marc and the teaching of Yoga Asana to support greater accessibility to the power of your Inborn Voice. Mylena will guide you hold and experience the profound gift that is your personal inner sacred vibration. It will be even possible for highly skilled students to learn how to concentrate on our Inborn Voice as the main path for meditation.
If you want to dig more information about the Inborn Voice method, you can read Mylena’s “The Way of the Voice“.
Inborn Voice is thrilled to present this Luxury Retreat in Sirmione, Italy, September 21-27, 2019. Italian lakes are famous all over the world for their beauty, and Sirmione sits in the middle of Garda’s Lake, the biggest one. Sirmione literally sits on a short strip of land that stretches out to the middle of the lake. The ancient city features breathtaking scenery. The surrounding area is full of colorful houses, vineyards, olive groves, and lemon orchards.
Sirmione is one of the most beautiful places in all of Italy. Mylena Vocal Coach was born in Italy and wants to share this amazing part of the world and its culture, with this truly unique voice, yoga and wellness retreat with all of you!
Starting from the 1st century BC, the area of the Garda, including what is now Sirmione, became a favorite resort for rich families coming from Verona, the main Roman city in north-eastern Italy. Verona is known all around the world for the romantic story of the two lovers Romeo and Juliet and is home to one of the world largest Roman amphitheaters the Arena where is still running live Opera. Sirmione was a possession of the Republic of Venice from 1405 until 1797 when it was acquired by the Habsburg Empire. It became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1860. The main historical landmark of Sirmione is the so-called Grottoes of Catullus (Grotte di Catullo), the most striking example of a Roman private edifice discovered in northern Italy. The town is famous for its natural hot springs that are just in the middle of the lake.
Romans invented the SPA a very long time ago! The word SPA comes from the Latin phrase, “Salus Per Aqua,” or “health through water,” traditionally used to mean a place where the water is believed to have special health-giving properties. This is usually a mineral or hot spring and can include cold water treatments.
But today a SPA can mean much, much more. In fact, the term spa is now applied to any business whose aim is to increase the wellbeing of your mind, body, and soul as long as it includes at least one hydrotherapy treatment.
Our retreat takes place in a Relais Relais nestled amidst Morainic hills surrounded by lush vineyards. It is an ideal location for those who enjoy the peacefulness, rural landscapes and multi-colored gardens filled with scents. It is very close to Lake Garda and to the beautiful peninsula of Sirmione.
In the nearby area, plenty of golf courses are available for golf enthusiasts.
All breakfast and dinners are included, with all the tips included!
We have scheduled a boat trip on the lake with Prosecco and a rich buffet, a winery tour with cheese, limoncello and wine tasting, followed by a dining experience with wine included in the countryside!
We have available Standard double rooms with a single queen bed, Deluxe double and triple rooms and even Suites. Each room has Wifi, in room safe, complimentary toiletries and satellite TV.

Marc will guide you through an experience that will reacquaint you with the essential physical and mental aspect of yourself, including light stretching, breath concentration, and meditation exercises.
There are several incredible excursions in our Sirmione Luxury Wellness Retreat:

We will take a local winery tour to enjoy wines, cheeses, olive oil, and limoncello. All these products find their origins in this region of Italy, and they taste here like nowhere else!

The water is channeled from the thermal spring through a complex system of protected and insulated stainless steel pipes, which keeps its chemical-physical properties unchanged. Every drop of water that eventually reaches the spring has taken a journey that has lasted over 10,000 years!
The sulfurous water with bromide and iodide salts combine bestowing therapeutic actions that affect the whole body and, in particular, the respiratory, osteoarticular, circulatory, cutaneous and gynecological systems.
The area of Sirmione offers a lot of activities to enjoy, including walking along the lake shores or hiking, water sports including sailing and diving, horseback riding, climbing, golf, tennis and much more.

Today it has been broadcasted on RAI, in the program L’Italia con Voi, dedicated to Italians abroad, an interview that has been delivered in New York.
Accidents don’t exist and whoever follows me will know that I accompanied Giovanni Scialpi to the RAI show “Ora o Mai più” conducted by Amadeus and with Jessica Morlacchi as guest. Well, the episode of the show opened with Jessica, followed by Amadeus and immediately afterwards my interview. I take this opportunity to send a big hug to Amadeus and to all the cast of the show, but also to all the operators of the Studio!
But let’s see at my interview (with captions):
Here is the transcript:
First, however, I must launch the next report by Andrea Fumagalli.
We go to New York and hear a vocal coach
Milena Origgi is a vocal coach originally from Busto Arsizio (Italy)
After an experience in London, Milena has moved to Boston three years ago
Tonight she is in New York to present her book “The Way of the Voice” in which she illustrates her method of voice training: Inborn Voice®
This method is the only one in the world that does not try to introduce new knowledge into the people, but tries to extract, to remove, to let out, to remove, errors or incorrect learning, to free completely our ability, our vocality and all our expressiveness!
I carry the flag of Italy high for its “craftsmanship” concept
My classes open in at least three ways.
Generally they are lessons that deal with vocality at a practical level for those who choose the “technical” part than the first place, therefore the exercises are not exercises like the usual vocalisations but they are almost mute exercises, done in silence.
And yet the voice gets better!
And that’s the first magic.
Second magic: some people ask me to go even deeper so here we start in the second part of this method and it is the “emotional” part, as well as the technique.
People begin to improve their socializing attitude, couples talk to each other and improve their communication.
Third and last part that the most complex and I must say almost 3-4% of my clients is that advanced: the Vocal Alignment®.
What it means is that not only is there a link with the external and internal voices, but this is reflected in the universe in all that we encounter on a quantum physical level, but above all, of course, it is clear that it is also on a spiritual level.
I’ve always wanted to live in the United States since I started traveling when I was 16 and I didn’t exactly plan to do this but I definitely thought I would be successful and so I never gave up and determination was the main element.
Tonight’s event is organized by Learn Italy, an agency that promotes the spread of Italian culture and language.
We organize events to promote Italian talent to promote Italian excellence that are many and with the event tonight we launched a new series of projects called “Talents on the net” so we will bring to America especially in the city of New York talents that may be a Vocal Coach as today in the case of Milena or may be creators of fashion or experts in food and wine and similar things.
Our agency is also important in terms of the formation of Italian culture in the world. In fact, for several years we have been carrying out post-graduate and post-graduate courses of higher education and in addition we are authorized and recognized by the University for Foreigners of Siena for courses in Italian language and culture in particular aimed at all those who want to achieve internationally recognized certifications such as CILS, which is the certificate of Italian as a foreign language that is valid for universities for access to our country for applications regarding citizenship, study visas and more.
I am very happy about an evening like this because training institutions like Learn Italy USA have managed to build a bridge over the Atlantic by networking the Italian talents who are making their mark abroad because this is our wealth, our culture, our intelligence to discover new paths through which to help us to become better.
a greeting then to Milena Origgi and also Silvana Mangione of the General Council of Italians Abroad, who was also our guest a few weeks ago together with the members of the presidential committee.
I’m always happy when I received a Testimonial about actual result from my work as a Vocal Coach, this time applied to the acting world. That’s why I’m going to open a studio also in Los Angeles!
I’m pretty sture I will she here in some of the next productions. By Just watching this video you can already tell how skilled she’s now.
Here is the video:
Here is the transcript of the video:
I am so happy, so happy to be working with her!
I hate noted it took me so long to find, you know, a good acting coach.
I had to go through trial and error, you know, with other acting coaches that I came across they only hit the surface.
With Melina she really knows how to dig deep inside of who you are as a person to bring out that believability or whatever character you have to portray,
I don’t know, at first I was a little skeptical about it because I wasn’t used to these types of techniques
I was used to the to the book training that I had in college and, you know, studying the standard versions of acting with Stanislavski also Uta Hagen method
so I was just not familiar with this style and I don’t know how she does it, I don’t know where she gives these homework assignments from, but it works.
It works and you know she has actually been able to help me get more internalized within myself as a person, as a woman, and breaking down what my own personal fears are,
my strengths, my weaknesses, my stressors, all of that, from every single layer that’s part of me and she comes to remove all these negative things that was holding me back
from bringing in that believability, because I did have a fear of showing certain emotions and I felt embarrassed about it.
I was concerned about what people would think if I would show a certain feeling and she helped me to really internalize that to get a better understanding
as to why is this embarrassing or why do I feel ashamed or what’s scares me and then there are other negative things that I had going on internally that has
to be fixed and we worked on it to the core because of that she helped me build back my confidence as an actress and now for her to say to me you know “okay you are now ready to audition”
For her to say that, that really meant a lot because I didn’t know how long this take.
For me, I like to get fast results and it is not proportionate.
I know you’re not supposed to feel this way, but there have been moments where I was like “God I just want to have overnight success”
I don’t want to go through this long process but she helped me to understand that it is going to be a process
It’s not going to be overnight.
You have to practice, practice every single day!
That’s how you get better
You have to do these homework, assignments, every single day
That is how you get better and I love how she would just constantly remind me of well-established actors now
who had to go through this process and who had to overcome a lot of the fears that I’ve had
and look where they are today
you know they are Oscar winners or Golden Globe winners, etcetera
but for me I just kind of lost that confidence in myself because you know I did graduate you know from college with a bachelor’s degree in theatre in South Carolina and I ended up moving to California
Once I got to California it was a struggle
A struggle of finding a stable place to live
I was in a roommate, also you know in and out of work
nothing was nothing was stable for me
So I couldn’t really focus acting you know
Time was moving, other people were auditioning, you know, booking commercials TV and films.
I was just trying to find a place to live!
I was just so emotionally and mentally drained and beaten down even though I still had the passion of wanting to be an actress
I just I just felt that time was just wasting on me
I didn’t want to be where I finally started getting into the industry at an old age
It was so frustrating, so frustrating and I did not realize by coming to California that I really didn’t know how to start my acting career because I’m having a living arrangement problems
and I have to constantly move because this person’s given me a problem and also trying to find work I need money to pay for lessons to be able to get all the materials I need for my acting career as well
At least I can finally say it took time but I finally got myself in order you know I have an apartment here, me and my boyfriend have an apartment together and you know he’s very supportive you know it’s great.
Like Milena said you’ve got to have that support system.
That thinking “I am in no position to have anything in my life” is negative!
That’s just going to cause another downward fall into my career and we have to move forward
so with his support and also my family, a stable job, all this helps me tremendously
the schedule is working out and I feel more confident than ever that I can actually achieve my goal through Milena and her skills
I mean I’ve never come across a woman like her before
she is so skilled, so skilled that I don’t know how she does
I mean I guess you have to just call it a gift in addition to her you know credentials
I mean she’s good and and we only train for 30 minutes you know
I was thinking you know at first when we got started that I would probably need training for two hours or so
but 30 minutes and each time, we train like every week, and it’s just improvement, improvement, improvement.
I was just so happy, so happy, when she finally told me “You are ready, you are ready to audition”
She’s tough, she is tough! Because she you let you know you’re not good, but she said it respectfully but she let you know when you’re not good
she’ll let you know when you are doing great
so her critiques mean a lot to me
I know she’s being honest and I know that she does not want me to look like an idiot going to these auditions
I just learned so much on a more intense detailed level it’s as if she’s making sure that I covered every single little and big portion of acting
because she makes it clear to me she said “I don’t want it to be where you fall, I don’t want it to be where you don’t make it”
She wants to me to fulfill my my joy which acting.
She wants that and I don’t know I just feel so much more at east, so much more at ease knowing that I finally have the right teacher
I mean with other acting coaches it may be working out for other people, whoever they have.
but this woman here, she know what she doing, she knows exactly what she’s doing
I still got to finish her book, the book she wrote but I just can’t believe that I found someone good because the last thing that you need is somebody playing with your career
making it seem like they can teach you and show you how to do things they can’t do! They can’t do anything.
But this woman here she’s passion.
I mean she is so passionate about what she does, even though her focus is on the voice,
but she’s able to help me more with my body movement, the emotions, everything that is layered around developing a believable character
Again to this day I don’t know how she does that
I have no clue because the home assignment she she has me doing
I’ve never heard of it
I’ve never heard of these techniques before
never heard of them
I have not ever been taught these techniques even when I was at school, in college, never!
but I’m just planning this work and I look forward to paying her as needed for the training because it works!
it really works
it works and she’s good, she is really good!
she helps me in ways that I just didn’t think it was possible
I really thought that was necessary a lot of work. I thought
but we were going trough the training she has given me an evaluation to let me know my progress
she say “you really are good, you don’t need a lot of work”
she can tell that there are certain things that need to be tightened up
there are thing that need to be strengthen but it’s not where I have to start from scratch and that’s what I thought
that is what I thought
and I had to start completely from the bottom but I just love, I really love her.
I really do, I really do and I actually feel really blessed to know that, I mean, it’s not being put to waste
but that’s the worst feeling in the world knowing that you’re investing money into somebody who’s making you think that they can help your career and they cannot do anything.
You’re not making progress, you’re not doing any improvement, it is going in circles
I am just so happy, so glad about her, to not give up on that research I to have found her on the Internet and trusting my instincts, my gut
and everything is just working out
just trusting my gut of knowing that I have a good feeling about her
like I said before I can’t explain it but I just felt there’s something about her
I just felt it in the beginning that I think she’s gonna work out
and I’ve seen her results. I think like she was on the cover of Elle magazine and meeting people across the world and countries. And there are schools wanting her.
All these other connection that she’s getting, there are right she’s good
so I will keep her as my Ace, I don’t want her go anywhere else but sticking with me
I tell her all the time “don’t forget about me! keep training me! I don’t want you to stop keep training me! please!”
because I am just seeing so much progress and I’m actually feeling the characters within me
I am feeling it
and she’s really helping me to to just go deeper and deeper into that believability
so thank you Milena
thank you so very much
thank you for being there for me
thank you for being truthful
thank you for being who you are and I can’t wait for our lessons of next week
