Sagit: http://www.sagitzilberman.com/bio.html A musician since the age of 6, Sagit attended Berklee College of Music and graduated in 2007. She has performed internationally and toured with 25 different bands in more than 15 countries in South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa - picking up songs and very rare and unique instruments which she plays. Sagit is a yoga and meditation instructor and applies her music for relaxation and meditation.
Lisa: Lisa was introduced to the beauty of sound healing in 2016 when she was asked to play a quartz crystal singing bowl at a friend’s gathering. As she stroked the bowl, she felt the vibrations of the sound go through her entire body. She looked around to see if anyone else felt what she had – she instantly knew this was the instrument for her to share her “voice” – through singing bowls she would create her business Sound Healing for the Soul which has become Lisa’s vehicle for sharing her musical talents and expressing herself.
