"I started the first day with an empty part inside myself and left the second day filled with love, inner fullness and connection - to me, to the group, to Suyana, to the life and of course to my voice. Since I attended the Opening the voice Workshop I sing everyday again and my whole body is swinging. Suyana led us very soft and gentle out of our comfort zone and created a space, where everything was welcomed like it was. She showed us that everyone can move and touch people very deeply with the own voice like it is. I'm so greatful that she followed her inner call to serve others with her voice. It is full of peace, light, softness, power, dedication - and brought me to tears several times. Definetly one of the most heart-opening events I've every experienced."
"I just attended Suyana's 'Opening of the Voice' workshop.. After performing and teaching soundhealing for over 23 years myself, I am very impressed by her natural ability to teach this delicate craft of voicework in a way that I can only describe as pure and heart-centered. Listening to her voice it becomes clear that she has the rare and precious gift to be able to reach ones heart and soul. But I could never have dreamt that she would be able to ignite that gift so effortlessly in others.
Her teaching comes straight from the heart and ignited the group from the first minute. I was amazed at how quickly she had her participants opening their voice and singing from their soul, often being brought to tears. The work was profound and deeply moving. By the end of the workshop, the whole group had literally changed. Suyana is a gifted healer and teacher. I highly recommend her work".
Dear Suyana, I would like to give you a few words of love that come from the heart. In 2017 your music has found me. A few friends have turned on tracks of yours and since then something has changed in me. Your voice has been present in my life every day since then. You shine the way with your singing prayers and now finally I have found my voice again. Through you. You were like a tuning fork for me and I'm getting closer to myself. Never has a human touched my heart so much as you have. Your voice sounds like a world full of angels and everywhere the light is on the sun. Flowers and butterflies. Thank you Suyana for giving me the way to my voice. Even if you did not know anything about it, you did it. I want to tell you that. You are an inspiration to me and finally I have the courage to show myself even more and to let what is in my heart flow. Thank you for your songs and prayers. You are a precious gift and love that has become visible. I send you my regards and bless you. Continue to beam so beautifully and I wish to hear you sing live someday and to see you. Only the best for you Tanja Sutter
I came to the workshop with the point of view of having a blocked voice. Instead of techniques to "fix" my voice I learned to see and to use the beautiful parts of my voice. As a consequence, loads of blockages and shame dissolved naturally! Such a wonderful approach! I loved the way you led us through moments of stepping out of the comfort zone in a playful and affectionate manner. With your tender and encouraging voice carrying us and allowing us to flow. To discover the healing effects of my own voice was truly magical. In the end it's a matter of trust - in myself and in life. This is a big thing to experience. It made me softer and stronger at the same time. Endless THANKS to you and your love that is felt in how you treat others and especially when you sing! Lots of love
I think what makes it so easy to open up in your workshop is your loving and authentic presence. Opening one's voice is a very intimate process and you create a sacred space where one can sink down into the realm of the soul. You guided us through different phases of this process with thoughtfully chosen exercises, a mixture of challenges and playful experiences. What impressed me most on the first day was how strong a healing tool my voice can be. As I am personally going a path of healing for many years I was really touched when being of service using that tool and could feel the healing effect it had on me at the same time. Between the different stages of our journey you made it easy for us to process and let everything sink in. Using your lovely voice you created a save space where one was taken back in time to a memory of being sung to by our mothers or grandmothers when we were small. I realized or even remembered on this weekend how one's authentic voice is a reachable tool for us to express our truth and innermost feelings. Thank you so much, Suyana for this exeptional experience and for igniting a spark....
Singing is one of the most beautiful thing we can do in this life. What Suyana transmits during her « Opening of the Voice » workshop isn’t just to teach you how to sing, but to help you find your own Inner Voice which you’ll then be able to use for Healing. Healing through the Breath is a powerful and beautiful tool ! What I learned within 4 hours of workshop brought me so much. I’ve been intrigued to explore my voice because some spontaneous melodies come out of my mouth since I’m drumming with my medicine drum. Suyana showed me how, through breathing properly and fully, the sounds can resonate and vibrate in my heart while coming out in a way I would have never imagined. I would totally come back to explore my voice on a deeper level with Suyana and would recommend this workshop to everyone. Opening our own voice isn’t easy but once we start, we feel better and more empowered to go through life with self-confidence. It’s also a kind of release. Suyana definitely helped me bring my own consciousness of the sound of my voice to the next level.
Throughout my life very few things have soothed the discomfort of being in my body. With the guidance of Suyana’s weekend workshop ‘Opening of the Voice’ I am continuing to discover the solace and comfort that singing can offer. Her teachings, exercises and practices are laced with a deep compassion for each individual regardless of the personal backgrounds and stories that accompany us.
Recently my vocal range has deepened significantly with thanks to sex changing hormone treatment, but it wasn’t until working with Suyana that I was able to truly celebrate this new depth of tone in my voice. The most freeing thing I kept realising is that my voice doesn’t need to be trained to technical precision in order to have a deep emotional impact within myself or someone else. Since the workshop I have created a daily practice of connection to my voice. This has become a precious time for appreciating my body and all the beauty it holds inside, regardless of how it may appear outwardly. Opening of the voice has added fuel to a fire that was quietly burning inside me. My life is now gathering a lot of momentum down an unexpected, but inarguably beautiful path. The music inside me is slowly, but surely being revealed to the world.
I am beyond grateful for Suyana and this experience.
“Suyana's workshop provided a safe space for me to explore my voice among a group of other people. Normally I don’t sing around others because it doesn’t feel natural to come out. But we did beautiful warm up exercises to really be in our hearts and learn how to use our voice directly from feeling our heart, so it felt natural and harmonious from within. It was a beautiful opportunity to explore my own ranges and to be received by others. It definitely made me feel safer to explore singing and I look forward to play with the exercises she offered and continue to find confidence in my own voice." Michelle Muller
"Like so many of the other participants, I had been silenced by experiences in my early life. I had lost confidence and joy in my own voice, and had forgotten what it feels like to let my voice ring out. As a young child, I still had that shameless, natural connection, but it dwindled and disappeared over the years. Suyana's Opening of the Voice workshop created a safe, caring space where I felt free to explore my voice. Her exercises didn't just teach us voice lessons, but created a comfortable atmosphere where we could put aside our self judgement. There was another aspect that was surprising and new to me: she taught us to receive each other's voices as well as give our own. Bathing in the joint and individual voices of the group was an unexpected and healing experience. Overall, it was an energising and joyful session that served to break down some of my inner walls. I'm looking forward to continuing on this path! Warmest regards and thank you very, very much! Much love, " Elina °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
"I always had the impression, especially with speaking in front of groups, that my voice felt blocked. So I was recommended Suyana’s workshop. From the beginning I was surprised how, with very easy exercises, my voice was opening up and feeling free. And the exercises are easy to integrate in daily life. Suyana’s loving approach and the humorous atmosphere within the group are a very beautiful bonus on top. I can simply and warmly recommend this workshop. With love, " Irene
"Your authentic way of expressing yourself, immediately helped me to allow myself the same.. to speak and sing from my heart. Thank you for creating such a loving and supportive space, that made me feel safe enough to open up not only my voice but also my heart. I still remember that blissful feeling when thoughts disappeared and intuition took over and was leading my voice. What a great joy and liberation it was to find my way back to exploring and playing!" Sabine S.
Dear Suyana Thank you so much for this women’s circle. It was amazing and just what I was longing for. I really needed support and sisterhood in this moment, needed to be held and this was exactly what I received. It was so nourishing to meet up with these beautiful women. I loved the singing together, finding my voice and expressing myself in the save space of the circle. It inspired me and brought me back on my path to share my light and gifts with others as well. Thank you for your devotional work, it is so necessary that women realize the beauty and power that lays inside.. Mi Cha
'It was such a magical experience to attend one of Suyana's Women's circle. An experience I will never forget. She creates a safe, comfortable and loving space for everyone and facilitates such deep healing. To describe Suyana is to describe love. The world is a better place because of people like her, and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and learn from her. Marita https://www.maritamaeland.com
Dear Suyana On Saturday evening a whole new world opened up for me! The combination of a women's circle with the singing was so beautiful. Until now I was always skeptic about women's circles because I believed that women were not ready to have integrated the unique combination of the softness and strength needed to guide such a circle. You proved the opposite for me.. I also discovered that maybe singing IS my 'thing', despite that I am singing out of tune my whole life. I know now I want to keep singing and exploring with my voice. Thousand times thanks to collect and offer your softness and strength! Much love.! Vero
Sitting in Circle with Suyana is an incredibly special experience. Her beautiful energy creates a safe space where people can be open and honest with each other and with themselves. What really sets Suyana apart is her exceptional singing voice. Her use of mantra and song is incredibly peaceful, while at the same time energising you. Raising your voice in unison with Suyana and the other women present (regardless of whether you “think you can sing” or not) makes for a singularly wonderful experience that will stay with you for a long, long time..

It was amazing. The women circle helped me to open my heart - for my sisters and also for myself. I love how you are able to reach with your beautiful singing the hearts from all of us. In very short time we built up a group, where everyone is welcome and equal. Thank you so much for holding such a great space for women to find the truley me. Lots of love!
