Bianca began her personal yoga journey in 2003. During a significant visit to India in 2012, she immersed herself in intensive yoga, meditation and yoga philosophy, which triggered a deep connection to this ancient practice. Yoga for her was more than just physical exercise; it became a holistic lifestyle that nourished body, mind and soul. Drawing from various teachers and experiences, she has embraced continuous personal development both as a student and a teacher.

Liliana Morell

August 31. 202405, 2023

from 18:30 

Liliana R. Morell has been accompanying people on the path to self-discovery for many years. With her very own kind of sound healing/sound meditation, she takes people on a deep journey to themselves. She now lives in Weggis, before that she lived for many years in Hawai'i, where the culture, spirituality and nature around Lake Lucerne are her source of strength and influence her being. Liliana's inspiration is to pass on her rich knowledge and many years of experience, to accompany people, to touch hearts, to make inner silence and one's own being tangible through sound, to inspire, to conjure up a smile. Liliana offers private sessions, small groups and special retreats with sound healing and transformation coaching in Weggis, directly on the lake ( She works as a freelance visual artist (

SOUND JOURNEY - MEDITATION Sound healing uses sound frequencies to achieve a deep state of relaxation, reduce stress, dissolve blockages in the body, activate self-healing powers and create inner harmony. Sounds have the ability to penetrate deeper layers of the body and psyche, bypassing our rational consciousness, so to speak. Immerse yourself in another world. Through the sounds of various natural and overtone instruments from all over the world, Liliana takes you on a healing journey, your energy systems come into balance, your entire body and your soul begin to vibrate. Your inner sounds are addressed by external instruments, you connect with your own soul sound. Doors can open that allow you to access inner resources and experience soul touch. Deep relaxation, well-being and healing can occur on many levels. Body, mind and soul are nourished by the sounds of various singing bowls, gongs, 1m mother drum, ocean drum, handpan, koshi, cymbals, chimes, rain pipe, pu'u.... You may experience the high frequency of a special ‘Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowl’, The human voice, the ‘soul song’ is also used as a profound tool to heal and access your heart. LET GO AND RELAX - A JOURNEY TO YOURSELF, INTO YOUR HEART, THE CONNECTION TO YOUR SOUL

The lessons take place in German.
