Body work for musicians
Timani

A few years ago, starting my studies at the conservatory in Trondheim, I got pain in my arms from playing. Through school and musical colleagues I was introduced to Timani – a physical approach to playing an instrument. This was the first thing I had ever come across, that could give me relevant knowledge on how the body works, supporting exercises and ways to get the power I needed from it in order to play as I wanted to. 

Timani helped me overcome the pain, but more importantly, it became apparent to me that the quality of sound, time and musicianship had a direct link to how I used the body - and it became so much better. Read more about Timani here.

Performance enhancing techniques for musicians
Brainspotting and meditation

As musicians we're constantly faced with exposing situations where we have to perform, and do it well. I used to have stress around performance, and life in general. However, finding great resources like Brainspotting and meditation, I learned that it was possible to have a different experience of life. Now playing is the most fun thing I do!

Brainspotting is a therapeutic tool that efficiently and easily allows the nervous system and body to process old trauma. When coming to a session, a person may for instance have performance anxiety or a sense of limitation in an area that he or she wants to work with – or even a wish to expand more on something. Because I found it so helpful myself, I wanted to dive in deeper. I have taken phase 1, 2 and 3 of Brainspotting and I use it with colleagues or with whoever wants a session. More about it and how it works in the video below!

I've also learnt, and teach, a meditation technique called Ascension meditation (The Bright Path). It's simple techniques, that have no belief-system to them. People often times experience more flow, ease, peace and happiness by applying the practice. I use it a lot when traveling, playing and in all kinds of situations, as it's also an eyes open practice! I love to see that it's possible to actually live an active life, and experience flow and peace at the same time.
