General Information

Mindfulness, a conscious approach to your own body and mental strength are essential in order to maximise your own potential and pursue a healthy and successful career in the long term. With basic theoretical knowledge and practical exercises, the Physio & Mental Coaching programme aims to provide an in-depth exploration of the topics of body, mind, health and mental strength. It serves to expand personal skills and knowledge, improve performance and enable students to practise their profession in a healthy and stable way, even in the long term.

For most people, practising an artistic activity is not just a profession, but a vocation and constantly demands top physical and mental performance. Tension, pain, postural damage, but also mental stress such as performance anxiety often arise and make playing and performing a challenge.

In addition to theoretical principles, students primarily learn practical exercises, bodywork and mental training methods. Students are informed about preventative measures, ergonomics, physiological and anatomical principles and are supported in dealing with mental challenges and their own performance under appropriate guidance. They are given tools to deal with excessive perfectionism or a lack of self-confidence. They are encouraged to activate their own resources so that they can optimally utilise their own potential in performance situations. The focus is on self-care, perception and reflection as well as performance coaching, learning relaxation methods, self-regulation and expanding one's own competences in artistic practice. Students also have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the latest research findings and research methods.

Basic module
In the basic module, students are given an overview of theoretical principles, practical exercises, bodywork and mental training methods and can focus on in-depth topics.
