Movement for Musicians with Mara Plotkin
This workshop will consist of a 15 minute talk about my background as a professional clarinetist and an introduction to what pilates is. The remainder of the hour will consist of a guided workshop through pilates inspired movement and stretches that can be used as a long term strategy to promote a healthy lifestyle and prevent injuries. Since this will be interactive and involve everyone's participation, it is highly recommended that those who attend wear comfortable clothes.
