Stability with Mobility Volume 2 - For Musicians
The program combines strengthening, stability and stretching exercises. It is based on the principle that by strengthening the muscles that stabilize the neck, shoulders and lower back, while also increasing their mobility through stretching and self-massage, musicians will enjoy a greater freedom of movement.
"Ginette's exercises have been invaluable to me in keeping me fit and healthy enough to tackle difficult and physically demanding repertoire. They are tailor-made to address the specific needs of orchestral musicians and are also useful in overall body conditioning. More and more Toronto Symphony musicians are discovering these excellent exercises, and it is now a common sight to see us stretching before rehearsals and concerts. I feel truly indebted to Ginette for enabling me to perform pain-free. "
Assistant Principal Second Violin with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
