Body Mapping is the study of accurate information about the body in movement and it is teaching the art of movement in all that we do. We need the conscious correcting and refining of our own body maps to achieve this efficient, graceful, coordinated AND effective movement; while also strengthening the mind-body connection.
As musicians, we spend lots of time and money tuning and fine tuning our instruments. Why wouldn’t we do the same with the bodies that bring the sounds out of them? Body Mapping targets and releases tension that holds us back as performers, unlocking potential and making the musical journey more fruitful and enjoyable.
Because Body Mapping is about improving performance by gaining a better understanding of how our bodies move, it can be applied to those beyond musicians. Athletes, artists, teachers and all movers have enjoyed success through learning more about the body and its structure, function and size.
The results from this work are often immediate and long-lasting.
