Have you missed a practice of deep relaxation?

Do you experience that inner peace is hard to experience in your everyday as a musician?

Or are you just curious about what might happen if you get a tool to “go inward”?

In Timani we recommend musicians to have a daily practice of some form of meditation. This works to develop the brain, create less stress and can help yoube more present in the moment on stage and in the practice room. It is vital to find a form of meditation that YOU like. There are many meditation techniques on the market, including Mindfullness which has become very popular. Th most important thing is to find something that is experienced as meaningful to you personally.

At the Timani academy we have chosen to focus on a meditation technique called ”The Bright Path Ishayas’ Ascension”. This isnota part of Timani, but is practiced by the Timani teachers to find inner peace and focus. It is simple to use and can be practiced with both eyes open and closed. You can find courses in the whole world on this website HERE.
