    FLOWGA, Florence’s unique, deeply touching, therapeutic, accessible,  gentle, whole person yoga practice results in feeling free, happy, heartful, healthy, and powerful in your body.

    Because FLOWGA is an experiential education, as well as a direct embodiment experience of health, healing, and happiness, conscious choice in your health, healing, and happiness will be learned in the process, empowering you to keep the good feeling going as you move through the rest of your day. 

     Florence’s leading-edge FLOWGA approach and wisdom arises from her determination to return to mind-body-emotional health after being hit by a tractor when she was a child, and a whole array of challenges, on all levels, that she faced as a young adult.   When offered conventional treatments which would involve force and pain for hoped gain, pain management rather than complete resolution, temporary fixes and life-long aids to manage imbalances, Florence felt inside that it must be possible to return to mind-body-emotional health naturally, and at the age of 16, began the journey to learn how. 

    FLOWGA is Florence’s latest-greatest, tried on herself and true, total health maintenance yoga practice that she has learned through her own journey back to health and wholeness. 

    Florence has been teaching for 20 plus years now. 

    No prior experience is necessary.  This approach is accessible to all.  It can even be done in or with a chair if necessary. 

Student Comments:


      “Your class is very healing, both mind and body.  It was really an exceptional experience for me, and I was surprised.  I have never experienced this approach before and I have taken classes in many different studios throughout the bay area and the east coast as well.  Most of the other classes I have taken have only affected me on a physical level.  Your class affected me on all levels.  Thank you so much!”

    “Your yoga class changed my life for real.  You taught me to be in touch with my spiritual side and to be nice to myself.  I also became a certified yoga instructor and have yet to meet any instructor as awesome as you are!   Also, your sweet open spirit helped me open my heart.”

                                                                                      ---Sue H.

   To everyone new to Flowga, l recommend Florence Schneider whole heartily. I took my first yoga class from Florence about 15 years ago. From the very start, Florence introduced me to myself in a way that I could not have done by myself.

    Her capacity to empathize and understand where each student is coming from and needs to go is unparalleled. There is a knowing that precedes thinking and analysis that is a wonderful gift that she brings to us all. If you have the chance to attend one of her classes take it. Even better, if you can afford a private session it will be great! If you're open to it, you'll learn things that you didn't know you needed to know.
    Florence is a rare breed of teacher in a world where Yoga has been reduced to a kind of flexibility class in virtually every gym. Florence carries the torch for the great tradition of Yoga as a deep and wide spiritual tradition for self discovery that is constantly evolving.”
