Virtual Articulation Narrating Instrument
Testimonials for VANI
I met Rashmi through a dear friend, at a time when I was seriously doubting my public speaking skills. I had recently conducted my first big workshop for a large group of people & I received feedback saying " You lack energy while speaking." When I asked for more details, nobody could tell me what they really meant by lack of energy. So I went with this confusing feedback to Rashmi hoping she would help me not only decipher the true meaning but also help me overcome it. And oddly enough, the first time we spoke she laughed and said, " Where is the energy lacking in you ? Well, I can't see it! And I want you to stop believing that immediately. Instead let us focus on finding your authentic voice." And from then on through the 5 week Vani course, Rashmi helped me understand the true elements of voice. I learned that Voice is beyond the physical - it is also the arrangement of thoughts, choice of words, and the intention behind using it. Week by week, her guidance helped me peel back layers of inhibition & self doubt. This gave me tremendous clarity about who I am & about how I want to express myself from now on. I also realised how voice can be used to help others. Rashmi is one of the most patient and compassionate coaches that I've come across ! Her greatest strength is her understanding of human nature & she helps people make authentic connections with themselves and others. Her positive presence and loving guidance helped me find courage to express my 'true energetic voice' ! 🙂 I would recommend anyone who is looking to find their own voice and their authentic self to take on this journey with Rashmi through the Vani course.
These classes are a must due for any person looking for improvement in speaking skills! It has been a life changing experience interacting with Rashmi. My journey with her over 12 weeks brought over a new side of personality which help me self introspect, think deeper and feel grounded...... MUST DO!
Every Individual needs are unique in finding their voice. Women struggle to find the voice to reclaim their point of view; parents need the most in their parenting journey, and for leaders, it is a paramount weapon in their armory. My needs were to have confidence in myself, accept myself as I am, go through the awareness journey to understand who I am, and communicate assertively in my personal and professional interactions. This exactly sums up the learning journey I had with Rashmi Shetty during her 10 week-long sessions at VANI. Her sessions were unique and come with philosophical touch and those tenets touch your chord at the right place and at the right time. I am very grateful to Rashmi for her coaching sessions. May her tribe increase in multifold and wish her all the very best in all her endeavors.
To quote from Longfellow “The human voice is the organ of the soul”. While I was using my voice as a moderator on many occasions, I felt somewhat untrained and sensed a lot that remained to be tapped if my true potential in this area. Speaking to Rashmi, who has been a friend from the time before her radio jockey and coaching days, validated this thought. Rashmi has always had a voice that stood out and made me want to hear more of what she had to say. When she offered to coach me and take me through the VANI journey to help me ‘unbox’ myself last Christmas, I had already given myself the best ever Christmas gift! It was a beautiful journey and Rashmi helped me step out of my comfort zone and explore emotions, modulations and much more. She gave me tools to stay calm, think on my feet and manage time when I speak. The rich toolbox she equipped me with makes me feel much more confident and self aware when I speak in public. I have effortlessly expressed myself the last few months and realised only in retrospect how much this has all been thanks to Rashmi and VANI. The completion of VANI marks my transition from a hesitant speaker-by-chance to a confident speaker-by-choice, and makes Rashmi my one and only friend-cum-coach. Thanks Rashmi for helping me connect with my own voice!!
VANI is an excellent forum for Voice coaching and goes much beyond making effective presentations. It includes how through our voice, tone, and use of language we can communicate to foster better relationship. Thank You Rashmi for your valuable coaching and feedback. I treasure it !!!
10 sessions with Rashmi were full of self discovery. The journey involved multiple assignments to focus on key areas of communication: voice, breath, pitch, emotions, structure & simplicity. Each session was around discussion on homework, impromptu in session exercises, stories & examples. At the end, i was able to discover the mantra that will work for me in presentations and as a speaker. VANI program has made take on more opportunities where I can speak, express, learn and inspire instead of avoiding It
I started my VANI journey as a coach who was evolving, discovering my true self. I had always felt that my voice was not fully expressed or heard. And I knew that I was getting in my own way. Coach Rashmi's guided modulation exercises helped break the self-doubt, anxiety, self sabotaging behaviors that kept me from sharing my voice. Though it was difficult understanding my inhibitions at first, it was amazing how Coach Rashmi held space for me, waiting for me to let my authentic self be heard! I'm immensely grateful for Coach Rashmi's patience, smiling demeanour, insightful sessions that helped challenge myself every step of the way. I feel a new found freedom in realising that my voice is like no other! And it's unique, gentle, beautiful all the same. Thank you for all that you are! You truly deserve all the love and light in this world.
I have had a wonderful experience of discovering myself through these sessions. Extremely valuable learnings, that will surely help me grow.

" VANI is not just a voice coaching session, it's a journey Rashmi ma'am walks with us, to find a better, beautiful version of ourselves. VANI helped me not alone to improve my voice, but boost up self confidence, which is the ultimate key to any success. Thank you very much for offering VANI, as a blessing, for us ! "
Working with Rashmi Shetty has helped me to speak with greater inner freedom. The inner judge inside me wanted me to be ‘perfect’ and it used to restrict me. But in giving up the perfection, I found ease and flow. This is thanks to Rashmi’s coaching style where she herself goes with the client’s flow and needs; gives valuable feedback as well as technical tips on the how and what of your voice: pauses, expression, tonality, etc.
Rashmi is the epitome of an ideal woman who embodies great confidence through her humility, her nurturing quality, the expertise of an experienced credentialed coach, her articulate and magnificent style of speaking demonstrated through her experience as an AIR- RJ, which she shares through her life lessons at 'Meaningful Mondays" sealed with an ever pleasant demeanor and a constant smile in all her interactions. These aspects of her instantly drew me to want to learn from the pages of her book. I have benefited in more ways than I ever imagined through her curated one-on-one sessions, which were packed with content and integrated with a coaching approach to far exceeding my goals. It is a pleasure to connect with her, she is very resourceful and generous with her sharing, and I am very grateful to know her. Thank you, an awesome lot Rashmi!”

My Heartfelt Gratitude to you Ma’am, for everything! Uncovering many colorful dimensions of myself. To be able to love my own Voice more and more. To Enable me to unleash my own hidden treasures. Besides VANI’s impact on me, it’s YOU who impacted me up to a great extent. VANI &YOU .. beautiful combination for everyone. The list can go on. Thankful to you forever.
"The sessions with Rashmi Shetty began with tools and techniques for voice modulation and communication enhancement. But in the course of our journey, I found in her someone with whom I could share other challenges too. She always had an answer to show me the direction. That’s the reason I feel she is more than just a voice coach. Every session with her left me energized and charged up with the motivation to do something. At the end of the course, I realized I was much more confident in public speaking, and there was also a shift in my mindset. Now each time I am asked to speak, or even if anyone requests me to sing a song, it’s as though I have a magic button to switch on. I recall Rashmi’s Shetty’s face, and automatically I am ready. Though it may sound weird, that’s what I have been doing. The course unleashed something within me, making me more positive and confident. It’s a course worth taking for those who wish to build confidence, develop their speaking skills, and open up as a person. Most of the courses in the market are highly priced. But here you have someone who has priced her course such that most women, wanting to experience a change, can avail it. I sincerely thank Rashmi Shetty for this beautiful voyage of self-improvement and self-development."
I always thought the issue was with my voice, it's too childish or soft and that was the issue. But through VANI, I understood it's about how we effectively use our voice. And that also means being self-aware and working from a conscious place of understanding yourself. So I got a lot more than I expected signing up. I looked forward to my sessions with Rashmi, understanding my voice, how it reflects my emotions and personality, and learning techniques to center myself and effectively use my voice. I've understood that no one thing exists on it's own, it's a consequence of different aspects of your life and that's why Rashmi's holistic approach to coaching was so very valuable. And as a bonus, she is so wonderful to talk to as well, sharing such rich insights and experiences, that there was always a takeaway from every interaction. I would highly recommend VANI to anyone looking to not only learn to understand and use their voice more effectively but also for well-rounded training and guidance. It's an investment that has made a world of difference to me.
Rashmi, thank you so much for the wonderful VANI Coaching session. Each session was fantastic, and you were extremely helpful in providing pertinent feedback and correcting my mistakes. This incredible three-month journey with you was thoroughly enjoyable. I am confident that I will apply all my learnings into practice in my day-to-day work.
