Piano-Yoga® Retreats Return to Kings Place, London, on 12th February 2012

On the 12th February Piano-Yoga® – the miracle piano technique which allowed its creator, GéNIA, to return to the podium just 10 weeks after breaking her wrist – returns to the refreshing environs of the sparkling new world-class music venue, Kings Place, where Piano-Yoga® retreats were first launched earlier in 2011.  Russian virtuoso pianist GéNIA will be sharing the cutting-edge piano method that is Piano-Yoga® with pianists looking to transform their playing and gain a more in-depth insight into the Piano-Yoga® philosophy and lifestyle of well-being.

A retreat is the perfect opportunity for immersion in this fun and effective new holistic piano method, allowing participants to experience all that Piano-Yoga® has to offer, with a combination of pure yoga and relaxation classes, technical ‘Piano-Yoga®’ exercises, performance psychology and group piano masterclasses.  Unlike regular Piano-Yoga® lessons, a retreat provides the opportunity for participants to completely disconnect from the daily grind and get into an optimal frame of mind to focus entirely on their piano in a nurturing environment.  And given how solitary the life of a pianist can be, one of the main pleasures of a retreat is the opportunity to work as part of a group of like-minded people, make new friends and share ideas.


10.30 – 11.00 Introduction
11.00 – 11.40 Yoga warm-ups for piano practice
11.45 – 13.00 Finding your own musical interpretation
13.00 – 14.00 Lunch break*
14.00 – 15.00 Mastering sight-reading skills
15.10 – 16.40 Masterclasses (optional)
16.50 – 17.30 Exercises for combating stage nerves

*At lunchtime participants can stop by the Green & Fortune Café at midday for a healthy bite to eat, or treat themselves to a more indulgent dining experience at Rotunda Restaurant overlooking the river.

Who can attend a Piano-Yoga® retreat?

Piano-Yoga® retreats are targeted primarily towards amateur learners, but they are open to pianists of all levels from the age of 14 upwards.  From conservatoire students looking to polish their technique and concert pianists concerned about an injury, to piano teachers looking to broaden their pedagogical horizons and amateur pianists simply wanting to get the most out of their piano, all are welcome to come and join us, leave their worries at the door, kick off their shoes and enjoy their favourite activity in a friendly and relaxed environment.  No prior experience of yoga necessary.

Our London retreats have been carefully programmed to complement each other, which means that for pianists who already attended one of our retreats in 2011 our Kings Place retreat offers an excellent ?follow-up?.

Events: Course January 2012 – “Vedic Art”

The founder of Vedic Art is the Swedish artist Curt Källman. He received a traditional art education at the Academy of Art in Stockholm but soon started to work in his own way. He created a training in which he combined the traditional art school with the Indian Vedic philosophy. 

The ancient teachings of the Vedas point out, that all knowledge already exists within us, like a seed “knowing” how to become a flower. When nature is allowed to follow its own flow, everything is perfect and in balance. This counts for human beings as well if we let ourselves be guided back to the source within.

All knowledge we need, is already present and the so called 17 principles in Vedic Art are nothing new. They work through everything as a natural longing to create unity. They go beyond right and wrong, allowing life itself to take over…

To create is something natural and everyone is able to do it! Vedic Art is about direct experiences. The 17 principles are simply a tool to guide you within. While you are painting, feelings are awakened…You become more aware of yourself and at the same time you will experience the whole process of creation: Art and life merging into one…That is Vedic Art.

Time: January 2012

Length: One week.

Group Size: Around 15-20 people. 

Steps: The process involves 3 steps. Students can take one step in 2 days or go all 3 in one week.

Cost: 190 GBP per step
