Twelve years ago my first “wellness” article, Using Your Body’s Wisdom to Unlock Technique was published in the American Music Teacher (June/July 2003). At that time a friend mentioned that it read like a first installment…and indeed it was simply an introduction to my own personal journey. Education is never-ending and in the ensuing years I have walked through many doors. Now I can honestly say that the development of physical perception has become the cornerstone of my teaching. And whether in the music or yoga studio, it has become increasingly important that I help others discover their body wisdom. I offer many ways to listen to and befriend your body – do it and it may be the greatest gift you can give yourself and your teaching.
