Renata about music

All islands are unique but linked at the bottom and by the sea. We are the same, unique but connected on a deeper level. When ocean of silence around us and inside us resonate, music is born. Music is the waves of the ocean that connects our souls.

Relaxation, voice and body movement

Connecting knowledge, skills, experience and intuition.

Our desire is to awaken in the participants the joy of singing and expressing their voice.

Singing is one of the most delicate and powerful expressions of freedom, openness, vulnerability, strength, and self-acceptance.

By joining voice with movement, child-like playfulness and lightness of a human body are restored so that voice can resonate freely.
