Playing music is so much more than just getting the notes right! It can also calm and heal us.
This workshop will tell you all about it!
Using techniques from Eastern as well as Western traditions, we will explore simple and effective ways to reduce stress when we play music as well as in our daily lives, actually saving practice time while enhancing our tone and technique!
Simple Yoga stretches, Japanese Divine Healing Excercises, meditation techniques like Kundalini shaking, Nadabrahma humming, Pranayama breathing and Do-In self massage are a few of the many ways we can de-stress our bodies as well as our being.
Playing with the traditional Indian tambura, brings about a deeply calming effect on the mind and body as well as effortlessly opening our ears to intonation.
The next step is playing simple western melodies or using centuries old traditional mantras, which bring us easily to a peaceful state.
Playing music becomes a delightful source of inner nourishment and relaxation.
