“Embodiment & Expression for Musicians” is a unique course of study in the Bay Area, based on the integration of two somatic modalities: the Feldenkrais® Method and Body-Mind Centering®, the work of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
Our body is our instrument. How we use it influences the quality of our movements and the sounds we make with our voices and instruments.
In both this group class and in private lessons, you will learn tools to free yourself from tension, pain and injury; improve your posture, breathing, tone and coordination; enhance your ease in technical proficiency; and help you find a dynamic expression and creativity in performing, composing and improvising. These tools are based on embodied anatomy and physiology, movement skills and guided attention.
