PILATES FOR MUSICIANS
led by Mrs. Renata Sabongui
Pilates is a form of exercise, which concentrates on an evenly distributed development and strengthening of muscles, a betterment of breathing technique, and connecting the mind and the body.
The workshop Pilates for Musicians will approach the musician from various aspects:
- We will dissect how our state of mind influences our bodies, thus our muscles and how that in turn influences our musical performance. After all, music is the language of the body and the soul.
- We will analyse posture. Our feet form the foundation of our bodies.It is now proven that weakness or instability within the feet will inevitably have a detrimental affect on muscles and joints throughout the body, leading to poor posture and even injury. In this workshop participants will learn to identify defective alignment in feet, ankles and knees and how to prevent such problems from manifesting themselves progressively elsewhere in the body.
- We will test the range of our movement and breath, and see if and how it limits us. Strong abdominal muscles relate to a healthy back. We will lean how to work dynamic core control, breath, improve agility and reactivity and also increase stamina.
- We will learn how to speak with our body, so it is understandable for the audience, the orchestra and, if applicable, dancers and singers. We will clarify, why it is important to take note of other artistic bodies and if and how to react to the audience.
- We will discuss a musician’s stage presence, including walking on and off the stage.
- We will familiarise ourselves with new findings from the latest IADMS conference in Helsinki, including how to manage an injury, and how the effort of our soul, mind and body concentrated on music is well spent energy.
After finishing the workshop, you will be better at being aware of your body, its expression, and you will have the knowledge how to use your body in a healthier and more effective way within your music career.
