Lori Laub -- I have been practicing barre for over a decade. It has allowed me to transform my mind, body and spirit into the person I've always wanted to be; calmer, more focused and balanced. I call this my "Fountain of youth". My body has caressed this method with such gentle ease and my flexibility and tonality reflect that. The sense of well-being has carried over into my family life, as a wife to my incredible husband and mother to our two wonderful children. In class, we will have a soulful interaction. It will be a place where you will be challenged; both mentally and physically. My goal is to bring you longevity, youthfulness and inner calmness.
