      “Body, Mind, Music” is a one-hour class offered to undergraduate and graduate music majors interested in achieving and maintaining a healthy sense of balance and resilience in performance and in their lives. This is a pilot course designed to introduce students to body-centered practices such as yoga and movement exercises, as well as mindfulness training and other contemplative practices.  These practices help to reduce stress and promote focused and relaxed attention.  Students are encouraged to integrate these techniques to musical practicing and performance.
