For over 40 years John and Barbara have welcomed yogis to join them for their annual trek to Negril, Jamaica. Negril is a relaxed resort on the west coast of Jamaica, one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful and lush islands and a wonderful place to unwind and restore the soul. Negril is vibrant and brought alive by Jamaicans, their music, and a sultry climate perfect for rest and renewal.
Barbara Benagh’s unique teaching style draws from many traditions. A teacher since 1974, Barbara has a quirky style that combines breathwork, exploratory movement, yoga philosophy and alignment-based poses. Her unique voice and language invite you to listen more than look as you are guided into a deeply meditative practice that encourages asana to grow from the inside out- very slowly. With good humor, she teaches patience and attention with the goal of creating a yoga practice that is economical, effective, and elegant. She lives in Durham, NC .
John Schumacher, a teacher for 50 years, is one of the most prominent and respected teachers in the Iyengar tradition and a senior certified teacher in that method. The director of Unity Woods Yoga Center in Bethesda, MD until 2023, John continues to teach weekly classes as well as continuing education workshops for teachers online. The precision, clarity, humor and directness that John incorporates in his teaching help to guide students toward experiencing the richness and vitality that are possible through the practice of yoga. He lives with his wife Suzie Mann in Bethesda, MD.
Barbara and John got to know each other while sharing a long flight to India and, while their yoga paths have diverged over the years, they relish this annual get together. Their very different teaching styles demonstrate how diverse interpretations of Hatha Yoga can be respectful, informative, and complimentary in a way that inspires students to create an authentic practice.
