Friday Slow Flow


This class is taught by:

Greg Schumacher

 
  • My teaching style is: Evolving with an emphasis on safety & exploration.


  • My favorite yoga pose is: Downward Facing Dog

 

  • Yoga has helped me overcome: My inner “critic”. I am learning that yoga can be a path to self-acceptance which potentially is one of the most difficult paths to follow.

 

  • I love my feet because: It is our feet that support us every day in our physical endeavors

 

  • My favorite deity or god/goddess is Shiva Bhairava, the Beggar with Dogs, because: This deity represents those who have been disfranchised from society. As an educator, I advocate & work with students with disabilities. Many of these students are considered on the fringe of society, & predominately come from poverty. I have also been blessed with the companionship of dogs whose example of unconditional love continue to inspire me.

 

  • You must try this healthy snack: Spinach…raw, steamed, sautéed, even fried!

 

  • My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is Jai because: It means victory, specifically victory to one’s Higher self.

 

  • My advice for beginning yogis is: Keep at it, & let it permeate your being.

 

  • I’m most grateful for: Those individuals in the past & present who have taught me something about myself.

 

  • The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: I don’t know if I consider this “exotic” but it was an interesting experience: A mixed gender, all- nude yoga class in the Castro District, San Francisco, CA

 

  • If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be Mom because: I miss her.

 

  • I’m motivated to take my yoga to the next level because: I am learning that as I embrace the deeper aspects of yoga (not just asana) that life, though chaotic at times, can be more centered.

 

  • My heroes are: Those everyday people who help others.

 

  • My one wish for the world is: That everyone takes the time to get to know themselves.
