Reviews for Yoga for Musicians

Filmed in the beautiful setting of Trinity Laban (it may well attract potential students!) the DVD is in two parts……Great attention is given to detail, with clear explanations of the benefits of each exercise, how to combine the movements with the breath, and how many times to repeat the movement. The pace of the presentation is well judged. Using this DVD with pupils, or teaching a few of the given exercises to a pupil as part of a warm-up, could be hugely beneficial…an excellent introduction to yoga for musicians.
