Do you have the impression that your life is actually quite good, but it doesn't feel like that? Do you feel driven by foreign and your own expectations? Would you like to live more consciously
instead, be more relaxed in everyday life and enjoy life more again?
Which role does your personal development play in your life? And what does your voice have to do with it?
In the search for a harmonious life, it is important to start with ourselves: To celebrate moments of pause in everyday life, to listen deeply, to (re)discover and develop our very personal voice and thereby become clearer and more coherent.
The way you breathe shows you how you live your life. The other way round breathwork can influence your life. If you learn to let your breath flow, your life will get into flow, too. You gain consciousness, serenity, well-being and clarity. Integrative Breathwork affects body, mind and soul.
Integrative breath- and voicework leads you into silence. It gives you inner calm and peace. Deep listening is important to recognize your essential wishes and goals. Deep listening is also essential for good communication, for going in resonance with your fellow human beings.

The development of your voice not only affects your own well-being, but also your charisma.
Our voice is a special gift of life. Not only for professional singers, but for everybody. Your voice shows how you feel at the moment and who you are. Enfolding your voice enables you to find inner harmony and balance and to get in tune with life. It encourages you to speak up wherever it is necessary for you, for others or for important issues.
Enfold your voice. Start in a private room, hidden from the ears of others. Dont't be anxious. Just try. Be curious and bold. Don't criticize yourself. Avoid any expectation. Just feel and listen to what comes out of you.
Express your current mood and stay within. After a while you will hear and feel that something changes inside of you and in the sound of your voice. Good mood will be more intensive. And sadness or anger will transform.
Over time positive vibe and your personal charisma will develop.
