Join Kayleigh Miller, violist, professional yoga instructor, and founder of the Musician’s Health Collective for this discussion of musician health, anatomy, and yoga for musicians. What should musicians know about their bodies (especially upper bodies) and how our playing positions and daily activities effect our bodies?
