How To Have Presence

The online course to help you gain confidence and charisma in conversation, on camera, and in front of a crowd. 


"The tools I learned in How To Have Presence taught me to stand there, in that moment where I would have previously felt uncomfortable and awkward, and to instead allow the fear and anxiety to wash away as I settled into the present moment. Today is not the time to be silent, and I credit Elissa with helping me find my voice when I didn't even know I had one."

Katie Schloss

"Elissa's How To Have Presence course is engaging, beneficial, and fun. Thoughtfully structured, each lesson extended my knowledge. Simple homework assignments anchored the material and improved my skill. By the end of the course, I had a new (and much better) understanding of how to work with my voice. Highly recommended."

Mike Gibson
Business Executive

"The How To Have Presence course was profound. Elissa’s instruction both helped connect me to my body so that I understood the physical dynamics of voice, while also connecting what I understand and teach about yoga and spirituality, so it took on such deep meaning for me. The experience was nothing like I could have ever expected but more than I could have ever hoped. I learned new habits that I’m still integrating."

Jen Netherby
Yoga Teacher

"The How To Have Presence course with Elissa took me into a completely different and wonderful world of communication and speech technique. I learned a huge amount about presence and voice range, and have immediately put the work to use. Elissa has a lovely positive energy and is extremely encouraging. Thanks Elissa!"

Does your presence shine?

Hi I'm Elissa! I created this online course because I want you to know that everyone has presence. The ability to light up a room is not reserved for a select few. My clients have often sought presence coaching after trying power poses, increasing their volume, or telling themselves to “be confident.” But it wasn’t sticking. When the big performance or presentation came they reverted back to old ways…

As children we are:

Free, honest, and imaginative. We move through the world uninhibited, feeling our feelings and expressing ourselves fully. This is presence!

As we grow we:

Develop beliefs about our limitations. These thoughts are reflected in our bodies and in our voices. They are often unconscious and are extremely powerful.

Gaining presence:

Requires retraining your mindset and rewiring your nervous system. It means doing the work to create new habits, and letting go of ones that no longer serve you.

It’s about rediscovering your magic. How To Have Presence provides you with the practical tools to get “it” back ✨

The Course Structure

Go at a pace that works for you from the comfort of home. 26 videos + bonuses

The Modules

There are seven module videos. Each one is 10-20 minutes long and explains a key concept. The topics are: identifying your habits, defining presence, overcoming nerves, being fully embodied, utilizing dynamic vocal inflection, landing your message, and memorizing effectively for a polished performance. 

Exercises & Homework

Each module is accompanied by a homework assignment and two short exercise videos so you can put everything you're learning into action. In the private Facebook group, you can share your homework, ask questions, engage with others in the class, and get personalized feedback from Elissa. 

Your Own Pace

Most students do the course in seven weeks, working along with the weekly reminder emails. At that pace, you can expect to spend about an hour per week on class videos, exercises, and assignments. But if you're eager, speed ahead! And if it's a busy time of year, take as long as you need.
