Being physically fit is key to a long, pain-free performance career.  Local 802, the union's Membership Assistance Program (IMAP), The Actors Fund and MusiCares are offering a free, weekly class to help raise fitness levels and lessen the physical  toll of stress on the body.

Whether you stand or sit to perform, your body takes a beating over  time. Do you experience a chronically sore back, "stuck" shoulders, a stiff neck or maybe shooting pains running down a leg? These are among the most common complaints of hard working musicians. These types of conditions tend to get worse unless you take action. Don’t wait!  Join us to get a stronger body, week-by-week. You'll start  feeling the benefits from the first class.

RSVP via e-mail to Siena Shundi. There are a limited number of spots available, so sign up now!

Do you find yourself constantly feeling distracted or unfocused? Unmotivated and feeling stuck in a daily routine? Lacking energy during the day, yet still unable to sleep at night? These are all signs of burnout! Yoga has many tools to help one achieve a sense of balance, calm and over-all well-being. You don't have to be an athlete or acrobat to reap the benefits. This is an ideal workshop for first-timers and those just starting, or getting back into, their practice, but all are welcome!
 
This workshop will break down a variety of physical postures, breathing techniques, and some general anatomy awareness to help the body relax and restore.

Come prepared to learn how you can benefit from yoga! Dress in comfy exercise gear because everyone is encouraged to participate! Please bring a yoga mat or towel too!
