BONUS: Breathing Tips To Calm Nerves with Cindy Doire
Play • 14 min

It’s a fallacy to believe that if you love to perform, that you won’t get nervous… Or that if you’re working in your passion, that you won’t feel anxiety.

The truth is actually anything but, and musicians and artists, like any humans, can feel stressed before, during and after performances (i.e. at any time in life!).

But don’t let the truth about stress get you down. The path forward to creating greater calm can be easier than you think - and Cindy Doire, registered psychotherapist, is here to show you the way. 

Discover powerful breathing techniques that can ground you in the present moment, and bring you back into your body. Experience the empowerment of regaining control over your anxiety, and add another tool in your toolbox for mental health and wellness. 

Take a deep breath and tune in now!
