Yoga for Musicians classes are designed specifically for anyone that plays an instrument. As musicians, we often make the same repetitive movements and hold static postures that can wear down certain muscles and joints over time. These classes counteract the repetitive movements we make and postures that we hold ourselves in. We gently stretch the fingers, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, and hips to release any buildup of tension or tightness that we have from playing our instruments. We increase strength and flexibility in areas that may have weakened due to lack of use or poor posture. We learn practical anatomy to improve alignment and move easefully, the way our bodies were intended to move, and we apply this to playing our instruments.
A consistent yoga practice can have many long-term benefits for musicians. We all know of amazing musicians who have had careers cut short due to injury. Yoga can reduce pain, prevent injury, and increase the length of your music career. It can also open up new pathways for creative expression and enhance ease and enjoyment in your playing.
