“Ayal models an embodied approach to education and human connections, bringing soul to mind and body, stretching our abilities to be more fully present and alive. He led a phenomenal Torah/circus workshop for the Lab/Shul staff. The techniques he employed included in depth text study and deep, heart opening exercises using our full bodies and full selves that left us inspired in our work with adults, kids and with our own artists and educators. Ayal is a master teacher, passionate and patient, an overall mensch who offers a unique, accessible and transformative approach to lifelong learning.”

— Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie (Lab-Shul)

"There have been startling moments of clarity and spirituality throughout the course as well as an invaluable bond between students that this type of learning has the ability to create.”
