"It makes you visualise what is happening inside your body."

 

"The exercises help awareness, improve strength, posture and balance, and make playing easier."

 

"The exercises are very clever, they can trick the brain so that you go into the right posture instead of going back to old habits."

 

"Working as a group is very useful.  Seeing and understanding other people's problems helps you understand your own.  You hear other people's sound improve."
