STOP PRESS! ONE PLACE LEFT ON THE LUXURY BREATHING BOW RETREAT
IN PROVENCE! OCTOBER 16_20. SPECIAL LAST MINUTE DEAL – £495.

What is Stage Presence and how do we practice it?

Autumn retreat in Provence with Ruth Phillips and Jane Fenton

Exploring tension, release and space through yoga, breath and mindfulness. Held in a magnificent Provencal farmhouse, and catered by whole-food chef, Tara Lee Byrne. Open to all string players – amateurs, students and professionals.

What we will cover…

* Through gentle yoga based practices, we will find our ground, get in touch with our backs and our feet, and look at even the smallest movement as it originates at our centre.

* Through breath work we will learn how the natural expansion and contraction of the body supports effortless phrasing and technique, from bow changes through shifting to rubato.

* Through mindfulness practice and compassionate communication skills we will learn how to free ourselves from crippling thoughts and judgements, and come to delight in the present moment.

*By developing a set of simple skills we will open the way to reconnect with our joy in music-making and in sharing that joy through performance.
