How can classical musicians actively encourage confidence and happiness in their lives? with Kiyoshi Hayashi
My guest this week is violinist, certified personal trainer, and holistic health and mindset coach, Kiyoshi Hayashi. As a performing musician, Kiyoshi is the founder, managing director, and violinist of the award winning Rasa String Quartet, the Co-Artistic Director of the musician-led string ensemble and nonprofit organization, Palaver Strings, and regularly performs with numerous ensembles around New England, including A Far Cry, Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra, and Phoenix Orchestra.
As a wellness professional, Kiyoshi has worked as a personal trainer at Equinox Fitness Club and in 2019 launched his personal health and life coaching business, Train From Within, where his mission is to help young musicians achieve professional and emotional sustainability by helping them implement habit change in health, mindset, and performance. While Kiyoshi has been successful as both a performing musician and health professional, his goal now is to find the intersection of these two passions and use them to inspire social change, foster community, and create a happier, healthier, and more compassionate world.
The Question of the Week is, "How can classical musicians actively encourage confidence and happiness in their lives?" Kiyoshi and I discuss his own journey towards health and happiness, the obstacles he overcame that led to the work he does now, and what a happy, confident, and healthy person looks like.
