I am Yanna Pelser, Resonance trainer and performing musician. As a trainer, I work with musicians who want to play effortlessly and with vivid expression.
In every body there is a natural connection between hearing and movement that allows you to move freely and effortlessly. Because of learned thinking/movement patterns, this natural connection can be clouded.
For many years I have been helping people to rediscover and actively apply their natural sound-balance-movement system (also called “audio motorics”). I do this by teaching the balancing movement quality of the Resonanzlehre. When musicians can let the natural balance work for them, and let themselves be guided by the sound, unfavorable and disturbing patterns and blockages naturally fade away. Space is created for expression in sound, which is why we make music.
I give private sessions as well as workshops to groups and ensembles/orchestras.

Through the sessions with Yanna I get more sound from my instrument, I can play more dynamically and I am more aware of how the sound resonates in the space in which I play. It also helped to deal with my arm injuryWillem Romers (jazz drums, NL)
Yanna’s Resonance workshop had a big impact on my way of practicing. I now feel generally more ‘in shape’, without needing to do all of my routine’s exercises. My listening awareness and how to connect what I feel and hear is improving a lot!Katharina Russland (classical viola, DE)
