During this 6-week course, participants will learn the basics of drafting and presenting public presentations. Unlike your typical public speaking course, Imke’s approach is informed by somatic and yogic theory. Students will walk away with various methods to calm nerves as well as develop a greater sense of body awareness and self confidence. Students enrolling in this course should come prepared to discuss, present, and offer constructive feedback to fellow classmates. No text book required. Imke Schessler-Jandreau is a two-time University of Maine graduate, holding both a Bachelors and Master’s degree in Communication from the Department of Communication and Journalism. With over ten years of experience working as a communication professional, she has abandoned the nine-to-five world to work as a mom, traveling yoga teacher, public speaking instructor, and communication consultant.
