THERE IS NO TECHNIQUE THAT WILL ALWAYS HOLD. WE ARE ASKED TO EXPAND OUR OPTIONS AND BE FLEXIBLE IN ORDER TO REACT ADEQUATELY AND SPONTANEOUSLY TO THE UNFOLDING MOMENT.

In the intimate interaction between your body and mind you can discover natural ways to growth, inspiration and self-confidence. I act as your mirror and guide to understand this process.

My focus is to show you ways to bring your body and mind into alignment with each other, with the instrument and in relation to the situation in which you find yourself.

You will discover physical and mental postures which are natural for you. Breathing and movement patterns can come into flow and become more efficient and enjoyable. Pain is released, self-confidence and presence begin to unfold. And your focus shifts from lack to abundance!

Mental and emotional processes are stored in the body as memories, movement patterns and inner images. Some of them are powerful and beautiful, some traumatic.

The good news is that we can benefit from pain and blockages, because they provide a vital information about what we need to make music in a joyful and healthy way.
Often, however, we have forgotten to trust our perceptions...



BODY WORK

Exploring your own body and its connections with the mind has a positive influence on your sound, well-being, technique and stage presence. 

Practicable anatomical knowledge and its integration into your own body experience are important components of my work.

 

Somatic work is useful:

  • to release tension 
  • to foster natural alignment
  • to free breath and movement
  • to uncover obstructive patterns
  • to learn new patterns
  • to expand your artistic vocabulary

Violin | Viola

Apart from technical skills, music-making also requires imagination, creative freedom and artistic sensibility. For this, it is vital to understand our bodies and feelings and to use them intelligently. Then playing an instrument becomes an exciting self-exploration.

I will help you to: 

  • match your technique to your anatomy (and not vice versa)
  • experience more joy while playing
  • practice and perform in flow 
  • prevent pain and anxiety
  • increase your stage presence

Yoga | Meditation

Yoga is a path of practice. We learn to look at where our limits are and how to deal with them. We learn to set clear goals and to pursue them calmly. We have a clear focus without losing sight of the whole picture.

 

Through yoga we become:

  • flexible and strong
  • steady and focused
  • free and joyous
  • grateful and humble
  • sincere and balanced
  • centred and confident
