Biography
Yael Flusberg’s meditation journey began as a small child attending an orthodox yeshiva, mesmerized with the rich storytelling and re-imagining that goes into every single sentence in the Bible. She gravitated toward practices like kavanah, which translates as “intention” and is about both the mindset one should be in when engaged in learning and rituals (“with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might”) as well as training yourself to see past the literal into the underlying layers of reality. In her 20s while working as a community organizer and social justice advocate for immigrant and refugee communities, she pursued studies in a range of mindfulness technologies, ranging from Kabbalah to Q’ero Andean to Terevada to Tibetan Buddhism to Yoga. These days, Yael is a sought-after yoga therapist, writer and coach who helps people find resiliency and relief in the midst of transition and loss, and in the aftermath of trauma.

ABOUT MY CLASS

yoga nidra
This guided sleep meditation is a lucid state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Nothing else is required of you but to lay back and listen as your body is completely relaxed and becoming systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

mindfulness (+writing)
With so much information coming at you each day, it’s easy to feel like your brain is bombarded and busy, like a hoarders’ attic or a mall on Black Friday. Mindfulness and writing can literally change your brain, boost immune function, and lighten your mood. Both help us become more resilient—to pay attention to the small stuff, play with shifting perspectives, be grounded and optimistic, learn from failure, and make life-affirming choices filled with integrity and compassion. “Wisdom begins in wonder,” said Socrates, and we’ll integrate mindfulness practices with brief readings and writing prompts to help us get a little bit wiser, a little bit more hopeful. Bring your favorite notebook, a pen, and an open attitude.
