The Fit Musician


Yoga with Adriene is my favorite channel on Youtube, next to NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts. I love her 30-day challenges the most, though I have to admit..I've skipped a few days here and there. Last year, for the 2017 challenge, I had all three of my kids, both dogs, and my bunny crammed together in the living room. For each human equipped with a mat, there would be a curious furry face ready to lick an upside down forehead, or use us as bridges. It was a really fun way to start off the year. This year is a whole new challenge, and I can't wait to participate! 

Now, if you don't want to commit to a whole 30-day challenge, try this video, made specifically with the musician in mind. If you start to work this into your weekly routine, and maybe up to a couple times a week, you will definitely start to feel better, overall. Take your time and feel free to flow with your own body, rather than try to become a master on day one. Adriene is REALLY good at reminding us to listen to ourselves and to really feel what our bodies are asking for.

Music and the Mind- Health Matters [University of California Television-San Diego 2010], hosted by Dr. David Granet, M.D, brings together experts Aniruddh Patel, PhD, of the Neurosciences Institute, and Barbara Reuer, PhD, of Resounding Joy to discuss the effects of music on the brain, targeting subjects such as the comparison of animals vs. humans ; music vs. disability; the brain creating music vs. the music creating the brain;  in what ways we connect as a whole on a non-verbal level; and the future of music as a central focus in our education system. You'll also find below, two more videos delving into the latter two subjects a little more from Tedx Talks, Unlocking Music with Neuroscience with Ardon Shorr and The Value of Music Education with Richard Gill. All are well worth the time.

*I'd like to give a special thanks to University of California Television for allowing me to share this video with you all!
