Pianodao Wellbeing

Wellbeing is the act of practising healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes, so that instead of just surviving, you’re thriving.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), our personal health is defined as being.

“a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

We all have a life outside of our piano playing, and it is clearly worthwhile considering the connections that can exist between our experience of life and our ongoing musical development.

To this end, Pianodao Wellbeing offers two major modes of support:

QIGONG FOR PIANO PLAYERS provides simple breathing and stretching exercises rooted in Chinese martial arts, meditative and medical practice.

These have been shown to foster physical wellbeing, emotional equilibrium, and can help players avoid tension and injury.

PATHWAYS FOR WELLBEING articles consider broad lifestyle issues and promote mental balance.
