Join Kayleigh Miller, violist, professional yoga instructor, and founder of the Musician's Health Collective for this discussion of musician health, anatomy, and yoga for musicians. What should musicians know about their bodies (especially upper bodies) and how our playing positions and daily activities effect our bodies? What kinds of healthy routines can musicians practice to fight off fatigue and pain? Have questions for Kayleigh? Join the hangout and ask away!
