The Certification will cover anatomy, Timani methodology and movement fields that create the foundation of the Timani approach for musicians. Simultaneously you will also get performance coaching for releasing any mental blocks when playing your instrument/singing and teaching Timani.
When you are certified you will have a much greater understanding of what it takes to play an instrument or sing, and you will have tools to help and inspire yourself and others to grow and discover more of both your and others’ potential.

I have a special interest for the potential of the body in relation to instrumental playing/singing.
I have special interest in helping other people, to get to know myself fully, my body and my potential
I have been to an Ascension Meditation as taught by The Bright Path Ishayas www.thebrightpath.com or I agree to take the course starting on the 28th of June in conjunction with the certification.
I have studied music or I am performing professionally or teaching (let me know if you want to apply even if this doesn’t apply for you)
I am a mature and responsible human being in my own life
I am interested in developing further as a musician, teacher and person
I am willing to dedicate myself to learning the content of the Timani Certification program and follow it to the best of my ability
Ready to fill out the application with: Name, birth date, where you have studied, work place or place of current studies, address, mail address, and a text about the reasons for your interest and why you want to study Timani. What do you want to have from the course, and how have you worked on your self up to now in regards to taking care of your physical and mental health?
“I took the Timani weekend intro course in 2015 and for lack of a better phrase I had my mind blown. “Someone actually knows this stuff?!” It was such an empowering relief to get clear, anatomical explanations of things I had experienced, but which my teachers hadn’t been able to help me with.
I used the exercises on my own for months afterwards and they helped, but for some reason I didn’t think the teacher training certification was for me.
Finally my hunger for the whole big picture outweighed everything else and I applied. I can’t believe I waited so long!!! I learned SO much in only two weeks, had incredible support from the amazing teachers, and came away with more than enough tools to keep me busy the whole year. This course is unique in that it focuses on the whole person, each individual is seen, heard, and gets what they need. I honestly can not wait for Level 2 this summer!”

“Basically I have no time to practice in my daily life as a freelance cellist, a teacher as well as a mother of two children. Since I have learned Timani it has been bringing me a hope that I can continuously develop as a musician even without sitting by my cello. Because all timani exercises I can easily apply in my daily life, and it gives directly an effect on my cello playing. I am really astounded!”
