Working in the performing arts requires huge amounts of physical and emotional energy. Meditation can help to harness that energy for the moments we need it most. Whether you’re performing, recharging, getting out of character, or just relaxing, we hope you find this meditation helpful.

Meditations designed and delivered by Deone Zanotto, owner and founder of Performance Based Meditation. Shortly after winning the green card lottery, Deone moved to New York and was almost immediately cast in a Broadway show. Not sleeping well, and under incredible stress, Deone found meditation, and suddenly her life looked completely different. She began sleeping through the night, and handled the pressures of her new job with ease, grace and joy.

Deone is passionate about meditation, and has had a daily practice for more than 13 years. After studying in New York and Los Angeles she decided it was time to share her skills with other performing arts workers.


Perfect for anytime:

Extend Breath

4 minutes

Extending your breath can have an incredibly calming effect. A great technique to use before an audition, before you step out on stage, in the middle of an argument, when you’re stuck in traffic – any time you need to feel calm in the ‘right now’.
