Here at IMIF, we use special techniques throughout the institute to improve not only the student as a musician, but as a whole person. A focus on mind, body, and spirit makes our institute unique!
One of these techniques are the daily morning exercises. At the beginning of the institute, most students are less than excited about the thought of waking up at 7am to do morning stretches. However, by the second or third day, students look forward to these exercises as a way to stretch and prepare their bodies for a long day of music!
The exercises are led daily by our own IMIF Executive Director, Elizabeth Borowsky.
Elizabeth uses a mixture of yoga poses and other stretches to help a musician's body relax and prepare for hours of practice!
The students agree that is a great way to come together as a group before the day starts :)
