Many musicians will experience pain from a repetitive stress injury, struggle with chronic pain, or have issues with performance anxiety. A common statistic claims that 87% of professional and 90% of student instrumental musicians will experience a physical playing — related injury at some point in their careers, but in reality the numbers could be much higher. Tools that have been scientifically proven to reduce risk of repetitive stress injury, reduce pain, stress and anxiety and improve overall health are: yoga, body awareness, meditation and breath work.
In this 12-week workshop series, you will learn how to have a deeper level of awareness and optimize your ability to perform through body mapping and movement. Led by Kimberly Hankins and Brianne Borden.
All sessions are free and open to the public. Be sure to come in comfortable clothing and bring your yoga mat if you have one — the instructors will provide them for those who don't.
