About Laura Rae Bernasconi is a certified AcroYoga teacher since 2008, Hatha Yoga teacher since 1991 and has been a docent to professional ballet dancers all over the world since 1984. She also teaches wellness classes and is a certified Shi'atsu Therapist. Using principals of the Alexander Technique, Feldenkreis, Gyrotonic and Gyrokenisis, meditation and mindfulness Laura focuses on individual attention to each student.

AcroYoga combines the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of acrobatics. These three ancient lineages form the foundation of a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness, along with healing, opening and strengthening that a dancer might not find in his or her regular dance training. Participants will find new ways to build a deep, inner core strength, discover how to create more space in the joints, build a new foundation of partnering techniques and obtain the skills to generate a powerful flow of energy and increased body awareness.

Circle Ceremony initiates the ceremonious joining of community with a flow of integrated movements. Here we establish connection with those around us and cultivate our openness to higher awareness. The circle ceremony sets the tone and theme of the class.

Asana Warm up, Yoga postures warm the body and grounds us individually in preparation for partner work. A mirrored partner asana flow helps to develop concentration, focus, and flexibility. This is an opportunity to look outside ourselves and open our awareness to the common experience.

Partner Flow is a creative sequence of mutually beneficial partner postures and stretches. Here we learn to understand the give and take of weight through communication, trust, self-acceptance and honesty.

Inversions turn our world upside down and bring out our childlike nature, pushing us to summon our courage and let go of fear. Spotting techniques develop deeper levels of trust, building the foundation for partner skills.

Partner Acrobatics is the most dynamic expression of this work. Greater levels of risk amplify the need for heightened trust, concentration and presence.

Thai Massage techniques use rhythmic muscle compression, assisted yoga positions and stretching that release stagnated chi along energy meridians creating a relaxed, meditative state for both the practitioner and receiver.

You work as a professional dancer or mover and have a Bachelor or comparable. You have to be interested in and have practiced Yoga.
