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.

Reiki 1 

June 3rd 1-7pm

Deepen your awareness of the energy body in a day-long introduction to the Japanese healing art of Reiki taught by Yael Flusberg. By the end of this session, participants will be beginning level Reiki practitioners, able to use their hands to heal themselves and others. You will learn the history of Reiki; the three pillars of Reiki; and the five Reiki principles. We will go through and practice the self-treatment protocol, as well as the hand positions for sharing Reiki with others. Most importantly, you will be attuned to the Reiki energy, without which Reiki will not flow. Yael will also teach Japanese Reiki techniques and touch on the differences between Reiki as it is practiced in Japan and elsewhere. Highly recommended: Having received a Reiki session (with Yael or any other Reiki practitioner) to be sure this is for you. A certificate of Reiki Level One will be sent when you have completed 21 days of the Reiki self-care protocol and two additional Reiki sessions with a family member or friend and share your observations with Yael.

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 and mindfulness for people dealing with cancer, insomnia, grief, transition, as well as yoga for medical school students and physicians.

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.

Reiki Training

I offer First and Second Degree training at the 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.

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.
