The role of breath

James Jordan examines why and how the breath is the "delivery system" for human and musical ideas in performance. "The breath," Dr. Jordan writes, "is the most magical and human thing we can engage as artists." This companion DVD guides viewers through yoga practices that can provide access points to understanding breath, free points of tension, and "holding" in the breathing process. The DVD aids viewers in understanding their own bodies and breath, and helps them identify individual strengths and weaknesses. It is suitable for individual study or group use. Portions of the DVD can be extracted for use in classes and rehearsals.
