We all love music and musicians. They bring so much joy and healing into the world. Wouldn’t it be great to utilize our profession to support and give back to them? Musicians put a lot of wear and tear on their bodies. In this workshop we will look at the imbalances that are caused by various instruments, the stress that is put on a musician’s posture and other muscular, skeletal challenges of the musician. We will then look at solutions and programming following the session format, using various Pilates apparatus, modifications, and props.

Presenter: Nancy Gwinnell Hurd

At the end of the workshop the attendee will:

-Understand how various musical instruments and practice can cause imbalances in a musician’s body

-Understand how these imbalances will put stress on a musician’s posture, joints, and muscular and skeletal systems

-Be able to create effective programing and sessions to address and alleviate pain, bring the body back to balance and add longevity to a musician’s career and/or recreational playing.
