YOGA FOR MUSICIANS
Lectures and workshops
MY YOGA AND TEACHING STYLE
I offer many types of workshops for musicians, and I am trained in Global Yoga, that is a physical yoga style, mixed with clear intentions, mindfullness, breathing techniques and relaxation.
I adjust and can give several variations of the poses, so all levels from beginner to advanced can be in the same workshop.
I don't make any religious references when I teach yoga for musicians - only music references! My teaching style is relaxed and natural, and we always have some laughs and have fun together.
In big orchestras or groups we often start with a 45 or 60 minutes lecture. Then we can be in whatever clothes and we all sit mainly on chairs. I talk about YOGA FOR MUSICIANS and how I use it, and in between we do shoulder stretches, breathing exercises and some standing positions. After a break we normally do a longer workshop with yoga mats and an outfit to move and then a nice relaxation.
Due to the space and sound system, I could have all from small groups up to several thousands in the same lecture. If the group is more that 40 people I prefer a head microphone.
So far I have had everything from ten minutes sessions up to three hours, it all depends on your wishes. A workshop contains a warm up, followed by a physical flow with natural breaks in easier positions in between, sometimes we stop and work more on technique and the my workshops always ends with a relaxation.
In my workshops you will learn breathing techniques and yoga positions that you can use in your daily life as a musician. I connect all techniques in the workshops to your life as a musician, so you get the tools to let the yoga help you during your day, while you practice your instrument, before a concert or audition or after a concert to recover faster or relax.
I can teach in Swedish, English or Norwegian.
A longer workshop gives even more time for breathing exercises and relaxation, or questions. After the workshop everyone who attended will get a pdf with the program we did and access to my video gallery. It will also be possible to add personal sessions for a special price if you book or attend in a workshop.
