Is your practice inefficient? Are you not performing to your highest level? Are you bored in the practice room or do you dread concerts? Are you burned out? Nervous? In pain? Would you love to play effortlessly and with an open heart?
The Breathing Bow is a holistic approach to string playing that uses breath, meditation and yoga inspired techniques to promote ease, presence and well-being both in the practice room and on stage.
Learn to trust your body and let the music speak for itself.
‘The bow must be a living thing at all times,
and all living things need to breathe.’
– Steven Isserlis.
The Wave of the Breath and the Nervous System
WHO IS IT FOR?
‘To relax is not to collapse, but simply to undo tension….There is nothing to be done. It is not a state of passivity but, on the contrary, of alert watchfulness. It is perhaps the most ‘active’ of our attitudes, going ‘with’ and not ‘against’ our body and feelings.’
-Vanda Scaravelli Awakening the Spine.
