Intermission: Music, Movement, and Mindfulness
Venue: Music Practice Building 103
Meet Melissa White, violinist of the Harlem Quartet, Lansing native, first-prize laureate in the Sphinx Competition, and soloist with some of America’s leading ensembles, including the Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston Pops, and the Atlanta, Baltimore, Colorado, Detroit, and Pittsburgh symphony orchestras.
Melissa is a founder of Intermission Sessions, which provides sessions and retreats on yoga and mindfulness to musicians. Join us for a workshop that will lead you through light yoga sequences with an emphasis on preparing the body for instrumental practice sessions or performances: arm and hand stretches to warm and limber the muscles, breathing techniques to relax and center oneself before a nerve-wracking stage appearance, and properly stacking the body from the feet to the crown of the head to achieve optimal posture.
Come prepared for light exercise--wear loose clothes or active wear.
Open to the public.
