Yael Flusberg is a sought-after yoga therapist, writer and coach who helps people find resiliency, relief and creativity in the midst of transition and loss, and in the aftermath of trauma. In her individual sessions, classes, and trainings, Yael helps students assess their physical, psychological and spiritual health; learn evidence-based techniques that help them with their particular issues and conditions; and ultimately engage in sustainable yoga and other healing practices that helps them experience every season and stage of life as meaningful.
Prior to becoming a full-time yoga educator, Yael spent 20+ years working with hundreds of grassroots, philanthropic, and creative communities through capacity building, community development and strategic planning consultation. The daughter of Holocaust-surviving immigrants and the first in her family to earn a college degree, Yael began her nonprofit career engaging in community organization and social justice advocacy with refugees. She is the Board Chair of Circle Yoga Cooperative in DC, and of Antidote, the nation’s only nonprofit that takes a public health approach to the issue of psychological manipulation of extremist organizations.
