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.
Forgiving into the New Year
January 13th 6-8pm
We know that endlessly replaying our hurts and wounds makes us feel helpless while forgiveness returns our sense of agency. Yet try as we might, letting go remains one of our greatest challenges. Forgiveness is the perfect practice for the beginning of the year, helping us release grudges and opening us to being more loving and free of the past. In this workshop, we’ll hold long yin poses while feeling the uncomfortable. As we release physical knots, we’ll gently begin the process of forgiving others and ourselves. Dress comfortably, and bring a notebook and your favorite pen.

The Faraway Nearby: A Retreat for Women & Nonbinary Writers

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.
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. 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.
