I’ve developed dozens of yoga and resilience-related workshops that can be offered in a variety of settings and adapted to different populations. I’ve presented at nonprofits, universities, museums, libraries, hospitals, companies, conferences, yoga studios, and in yoga teacher training programs.
Virtual Pen & Pose: A Workshop in
Yoga & Writing
Offered through the Prince Georges County Department of Parks & Recreation Saturday May 1st 11-12:30 pm
For many, this pandemic year has stymied our ability to travel as freely and distantly as we once did. We yearn to wander through bookstores, museums, and café-lined streets in unfamiliar places that heighten our senses. At the same time, we might have learned to meander closer to home – watching migratory birds in our backyard or taking online courses with participants around the world. Using writing and yoga, we will intersperse movement with writing prompts to map out the road ahead. Lead by poet and yoga educator Yael Flusberg, participants should dress comfortably, have a yoga mat and any props they like (a blanket, blocks or a thick book, a strap), and bring your favorite notebook, pen, and an open attitude. This hour-and-a-half workshop will be held via Microsoft Teams. Please ensure your email is inputted correctly, as a link will be sent out the day before the workshop.

Some workshops I’ve taught recently include…
Yoga Therapy for Special Populations or Conditions
I can customize a six- to eight-week program for your population or condition. These programs have included yoga for people dealing with cancer, yoga for insomnia, yoga for grief, yoga for medical school students, and yoga/mindfulness for doctors.
Pen & Pose: A Workshop in Yoga and Writing
Since 2007, I’ve helped participants use literal and metaphorical vehicles to reveal concealed aspects of themselves using mindfulness, movement and creative expression. I’ve offered Pen & Pose at libraries, universities, poetry festivals, art galleries, hospices and places of worship. Each workshop is unique with themes ranging from the chakras to crossroads, from Mother’s Day to the New Year.
I teach what resilience is and why it matters. Can be adapted for different populations (e.g., physicians, medical students, Jewish women) or times (e.g., during a pandemic, election season, etc.)
Breath & Tonic
A combination of breathwork with restorative yoga postures to revitalize. An excellent “chill pill” and especially delightful for those suffering adrenal fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety, or any auto-immune or chronic conditions.
I offer First and Second Degree training at the GW Center for Integrative Medicine, usually co-taught with Luann Jacobs. Check out GW Center for Integrative Medicine for more information.
Yoga Teacher Training
I have served as core and guest faculty for both 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings, offering modules ranging from resilience to restoratives, sequencing to storytelling, ethics to energetic anatomy, theme to trauma-informed yoga. In addition, I offer a stand alone 50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training. More info here
Heart Rate Variability & Contemplative Practices
I’ve co-presented this experiential session for doctors and other health care professionals wishing to incorporate mindfulness practices in reducing patients’ stress and improving health care outcomes.
