Principal Clarinet's Recovery
Alex Laing, Principal Clarinet, The Phoenix Symphony's Success Story
Like too many musicians, I was prompted to examine my relationship to my body by the crisis of injury. Too many years of pursuing the music I wanted to make at a all costs finally caught up with me and I found myself first in pain and ultimately, unable to play. While my treatment was multi-faceted, Feldenkrais was instrumental in moving me along the road to recovery. For me, Feldenkrais was and remains an invaluable tool to help develop a greater sensitivity and awareness of what my body is actually doing and how I can best move within it.
