Following on from the live discussion between Peter Blackaby and Ruth Phillips for the London Cello Society on October 3, Ruth Phillips and Jane Fenton (who trained to become a yoga teacher with Peter) are delighted to finally be together again LIVE, through the European String Teachers’ Association, sharing what they love best: The Breath! In this one-day workshop for string players, they will offer simple mindfulness and yoga-based practices that have completely transformed their own experience of practice and performance. Together they will invite you to explore the vital balance between tension and release, planning and the present moment, doing and non-doing, all through the window of this great and simple teacher within us – the inhale and the exhale. We hope you will leave the workshop feeling calmer, refreshed and more embodied, ready to re-enter your musical life with joy, ease and confidence.
