Directed by cellist and Feldenkrais Practitioner Uri Vardi and former flutist and Feldenkrais Practitioner Hagit Vardi, the YBIYS Virtual Institute is a live interactive two-week institute open to all instrumentalists and vocalists – students, educators and professionals are encouraged to register.
The Institute offers opportunities to discover body awareness in performance, learn from cutting edge faculty and speakers, connect with world-class artists, and create a community with fellow musicians from around the world!
