The method

Atem–Tonus–Ton® was developed by Maria Höller-Zangenfeind. Her idea was to build a bridge between contemplative breath/body work and body-based vocal training. Breath and vocal training concepts had already existed as independent areas of expertise. Combining these two fields became an exciting challenge. Greater attention was focused on the subconscious qualities of sound, and the method was expanded to include vocal aspects related to personality development.

Atem–Tonus–Ton is body-based vocal training and a means of self-experience and expression. The most important aspect here is authenticity – in body, voice and gesture. Mental and emotional alignment, muscle tone, movement, breathing and voice are experienced as inseparably linked.
