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.
Yin for the Harvest Season
November 4th 6:30-8pm
Meister Eckhart, the German mystic said that “what we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.” This November, join Yael Flusberg for a special class on the gifts of this year’s harvest. Expect slow yin flows and longer held poses, with time dedicated to journaling and visualization.

By the end of this training, you will feel confident facilitating Yin sessions to a wide range of students in a way that is anatomy-informed, trauma-aware and compassionate. You will be able to sequence Yin classes using principles of both physical and energetic anatomy, and understand how to create and hold space for students to be in touch with their psychological and spiritual motivations.

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.
