Piano-Yoga® Transform Your Hands 10 week course of exercises
GéNIA, creator of Piano-Yoga®:
"When I was learning the piano the majority of exercises were either boring and unmusical or extremely difficult. Often I did not have enough patience to go through them.
Years later as a professional pianist and teacher, I wanted to devise a particular programme for myself that would allow me to stretch my fingers, widen my hand span, and increase the capacity of my hands. Despite extensive research, I could not find one coherent exercise programme specifically designed to enable me to do this.
My response was:
'Ok, great! Let's make a course of exercises that are short and sweet, like little yogic exercises for the fingers - let's give every pianist the five minute routines that the professionals use to warm up before their recordings and concerts.'
The result is the first book in the Piano-Yoga® series "Transform Your Hands: A complete ten week course of piano exercises", a unique hand and finger workout that will do more for your technique than hours of practising pieces: the muscles of your hands could become much stronger and in turn your finger flexibility should increase. By the end of the first two weeks you may start noticing changes and as the programme continues your span on the keyboard may also increase. Your hands may even feel and seem larger!
These exercises can be especially beneficial to people with smaller hands and you may even be able to start playing the pieces that you have always wanted to.
The whole approach of this book is influenced by the ancient practice of yoga. Being a practitioner myself, I used the holistic principles and approach of yoga as the foundation of this course.
All the exercises are simple and will suit anyone who plays the piano from advanced-beginner to intermediate and advanced level. With the correct approach you should feel connected physically, mentally, and spiritually to your instrument. Once you are familiar with this book, you can also create your own exercises using the Piano-Yoga® exercises in the book as a basis.
Have lots of fun, be creative, and enjoy your practice!"
GéNIA studied piano at the Kharkov State Institute of Arts, Guildhall School of Music, London and Trinity College, London. She is a qualified B.W.Y. (British Wheel of Yoga) accredited teacher and trained at The Life Centre®, London.
