The Piano-Yoga Foundation Stage is important for people new to the method, as it will prepare their hands and their mind for more advanced exercises in further stages. It introduces the fundamentals of Piano-Yoga® and is very different from all other chapters, as the majority of exercises here can be done away from the piano: in a car, in a park, in your living room or bedroom - whenever you have a minute. Piano-Yoga is working on releasing the next stage of Transform Your Hands onto Kindle and the Foundation Stage will be released on Apple’s iBooks, Sony Readers, Nook and Kobo very soon.
