Laura Bond is an internationally recognized master teacher in the Alba Method of physical emotion regulation. She teaches Alba in university classes, private lessons, and through regional, national, and international workshops. She studied and co-taught with the method’s founder, Dr. Susana Bloch, in the USA and in Chile where Susana Bloch resides. Since then Laura has dedicated her career to developing new methods for teaching emotional awareness and the emotional effector patterns to the general public. She also works with performers, public presenters, business professionals, therapists and life coaches to help them recognize how physical emotion regulation and the emotional effector patterns can be used in their practices.
Laura often teaches workshops where Alba lessons are supported by the Feldenkrais method (taught by Feldenkrais guild certified instructors) and the Estill Voice technique. As a result of this partnering, Laura has developed new ways to teach emotional effector patterns with greater somatic clarity, vocal expression application, and sensitivity to the individual. Laura is considered a universal emotional effector pattern teacher, creating lessons and workshops designed to match the needs of individuals from varying backgrounds and professional fields.
Laura is a Full Professor at UNC-Asheville, and the Director of the Arts and Ideas Program. She is the author of TEAM for Actors: A Holistic Approach to Embodied Acting.
She is currently working on a second book, titled The Emotional Body, on the emotional effector patterns and their use for emotion regulation for the general public.
In addition to her work in physical emotional regulation and personal expression development, she also teaches acting, directing, voice production, storytelling and public speaking. She is a Certified Master Teacher of the Estill Voice Technique, is a professional Equity actress, director, singer, and voice-over artist.
