At AAROHA,
we empower you to unleash the full potential of your voice, at the same time ensuring the long term health of your voice. This is achieved through an effective blend of voice science, vocal arts, medical technology and performance psychology.

AAROHA is the brainchild of Dr. Sadhana Nayak, a vocal arts medicine specialist - laryngologist specializing in ‘Care of The Professional Voice’ [in simple terminology- a voice doctor] and voice performance consultant with a multifaceted background in the field of voice science, vocal arts, phonetics and performance psychology.

Dr. Nayak has been a Visiting Fellow in ‘Laryngology and Care of the Professional Voice’ at Dr. Robert T. Sataloff’s “The American Institute for Voice & Ear Research”, Philadelphia , U.S.A. Dr. Sadhana Nayak was awarded the prestigious Fulbright-Nehru Fellowship for the academic year 2011- 12, as visiting faculty for Voice at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Drama.

She is a certified Associate teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, a comprehensive approach to voice training, taught at Yale School of Drama, Harvard University and other institutions in the U.S.A, Europe and other parts of the world.

She is an associate of internationally acclaimed broadcast voice specialist, Dr. Ann Utterback , voice coach to CNN, ESPN, NPR, NBC, ABC and author of Broadcast Voice Handbook. As a performance psychologist, she has been helping a large number of performers and professionals optimize their performance and stage /media presence through hypnotherapy, NLP and peak performance training. She is a hypnotherapist, certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Nayak is the only laryngologist in India who is a trained singer and voice- over [VO].

I contacted Dr.Sadhana Nayak when I was doing a theatre workshop with EKJUTE. Nadeera Babbar was doing a new play- PENCIL SE BRUSH TAK. When she heard my voice, she commented I had a typical voice quality. I realised I needed some voice training if I had to get a role. I chose to take personal consultation and training with Dr. Sadhana Nayak and my voice showed a lot of improvement. I got the role and I fulfilled my dream of performing at PRITHVI theatre. Now I am doing a course in the Business of Films and Television at Subhash Ghai's Institute, Whistling Woods International. I wish Dr. Nayak all the success that she rightly deserves.

I consulted Dr. Nayak because my voice had become very hoarse. I could not speak or sing softly and I could not sing the higher pitches. With Dr. Nayak's corrective voice training and treatment, my voice is back to normal. I can reach higher pitches with ease. Not only my voice but my body also feels relaxed. I can sing clearly in a soft voice. In the past I used to have sore throats very often. That has stopped completely.

I am very happy with the positive changes in my voice after training with Dr. Nayak. My voice was hoarse before I visited Dr. Nayak. With the simple techniques that she taught me, I found a lot of change in my voice. It got clearer and I am able to reach the higher notes very easily.

Excellent Voice Workshop! It has helped me a lot in learning the basics of voice, which is very important for a voice user like me. The style of teaching is very good. Would love to learn more and more on the subject.
