MISSION

SOMA is the body perceived from within. MUSE stands for music and the muse as inspiration.

SOMAMUSE refines your awareness of your body and the understanding of mental and psychological processes.

The goals are as individual as the people I support. They all have in common the desire for more joy and mindfulness, for growth and creative self-expression.

 

Together with musicians, I explore how their body experience is connected to their movements on the instrument and the perceptions they experience, and how this unity becomes unbalanced. 

You will expand your vocabulary of movement, expression and sound and increase your stage presence. Anatomical knowledge and new ways of moving with/without your instrument prevent bad posture, discomfort and fatigue. 

Individual sessions and workshops at music universities and in orchestras offer practicable knowledge and integrate it into the body experience of the participants. 


WHAT WE NEED FOR CHANGE IS INHERENT
IN THE PERCEPTION OF THE HERE AND NOW.
OUR BODY IS BEST SUITED TO BRING US INTO THE PRESENT MOMENT.
