GAGA/People Classes for November

Saturday November 4th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with James Viveiros

Saturday November 18th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with Laura Toma

Cost: $16 plus tax

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members.  The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with themselves and others.

Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.

« Mindfulness is not a tool, it’s a path » – Thich Nhat Hanh

In this intro to meditation 8-session workshop, we will start unfolding what mindfulness means. Every evening will be divided between talks about the teachings, and practice. We will discover some of the main teachings, like the 4 noble truths, the eightfold path and the brahma viharas. We will then get a sense of what they mean through our own experience, practicing in many different ways. Some home-exercises will also be suggested as a way to foster and bring continuity to the practice. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Cost: 80$ for 8 sessions or 15$ per session
