Gaga classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement. Gaga’s movement language is developed by Ohad Naharin, house choreographer of Batsheva Dance Company, and is constantly evolving.

In Laura’s ballet class, she encourages exploration of energetic patterns in the body and positive thoughts in the mind. The technique of Ballet Bernasconi stems from principles of the Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, the Ilan Lev Method, Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis, hatha yoga, sports psychology and martial arts. Laura focuses on individual needs of each student with support, empathy, love and mudita, or vicarious joy.
