Warming up before our performance.

Cynthia Huard reminded me yesterday to do what I need to do be performing yesterday.   Self care is so important.  Before concerts I like to run my hands under warm water, do some yoga and be quiet and undisturbed for a bit before going “on”.   Sometimes it is hard to remember to do what you need to do though.  Self-care advice to get a good nights sleep, take ample time to practice, rehearse, and stretch is often ignored or put-off but can show in the performance (at least from the perspective of the performer).

Thank you Sarabeth for the pictures!
