Full Bio & Programs
For everyone; no musical or yoga experience needed.
Could you benefit from a unique and joyful way to begin or deepen a mindfulness or yoga practice? If so, what has that got to do with playing the harmonica? Breath focus is a basic element of yoga, mindfulness, and many stress-reduction methods. What better way to focus on breathing than with the inhalations and exhalations of a catchy rhythm on a harmonica?
This workshop teaches you to
- Play in duets and small groups to build musical, interpersonal, and communication skills
- Integrate harmonica-based breath focus with asana to enhance vinyasa and create a personalized mindfulness practice
- Use a HarMantra to short-circuit stress
Within minutes, you’ll be improvising simple blues and rock. By Friday, you’ll be playing everything from Amazing Grace and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony to amplified jam sessions. In the process, you gain accessible and effective mindfulness skills that can be applied anywhere, anytime-with or without a harmonica.
Note Tuition includes two harmonicas and David Harp’s 96-page workbook and CD, A Band in My Pocket. Each workshop is customized to meet the group’s interests regarding musical styles and the balance of yoga, mindfulness, and music.
