Welcome to

Is stage fright preventing you from performing with ease, freedom, and joy? Are you sick and tired of your inner critic judging everything you do and running the show? Do you get so scared when you perform in front of others that sometimes you think it would be easier to just give the whole thing up?

Don’t give up! Stage fright is a natural response of the body and mind to a stressful situation. Most performers, even high level professionals, have experienced stage fright at some point in their lives, and the fact that you experience stage fright does not mean there is something wrong with you. The good news is that there are lots of things you can do to mitigate the effects of stage fright or even stop it from happening in the first place! 

In this 3-hour workshop you will learn about the physiological and psychological symptoms of stage fright, practice techniques for calming the body and mind, and learn easy things you can add to your pre-performance routine to prevent stage fright from happening. At the end of this workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to perform a song for the group (optional but strongly encouraged). You’ll walk away armed with knowledge, easy and effective tools, and the confidence that stage fright doesn’t need to stand in your way of giving your best performance!

Definitely not! Stage fright occurs when the body and mind get triggered into a fight/flight/freeze response. The nervous system becomes dysregulated. We feel uncomfortable feelings in our bodies, and our minds begin racing in an attempt to “help” when they are actually making things worse. When we understand what our personal symptoms of stage fright are, we can catch it more quickly and use practices based in breathing, movement, meditation, and self-talk that help the nervous system regulate and the symptoms of stage fright abate. What’s more, there are easy things you can start doing before your performances that will make it less likely for stage fright to occur in the first place.

Most of us relate with stage fright by white-knuckling it and just trying to survive the experience. And we tend to use the same coping strategies over and over, many of which simply don’t work. But when you have specific practices you can do that have been proven to regulate the nervous system, then the mind and body can feel safe again and the fight/flight/freeze response can dissipate. The more we practice these, the more quickly our nervous systems will return to normal so that they stop interfering with our performances. They are easy to do and they really do work!

What we’ve found here at golden lotus studio is that there’s just no substitute for being in a class along with other students and an instructor that supports you. By joining us, you’ve subjected yourself to a level of accountability that’s simply not present when you casually surf YouTube. You’re going to engage with the material in a different way, you’re going to show up in a different way, and you will be supported in a different way with the presence of classmates and an instructor.
