Workshop Details

Join Noah Mazé for a week of yogic practices, community, nature, contemplation and celebration of our freedom over this July 4th week. Each morning session begins with a mythic yoga story to awaken your imagination and subconscious mind followed by a strong and focused alignment-based yoga class to open and strengthen your body. Each afternoon session nourishes you with restorative yoga, hip-opening poses, pranayama, mantra, meditation and journaling. Throughout the week, we will explore yogic teachings and perspectives of freedom and what those teachings may mean to us today. Expect to work hard, play deeply and be nourished in this week of yogic practices designed to expand your capacity and connect to what lies at the foundation of your relationship to yoga. Each session will include alignment and Vinyasa techniques, applied anatomy, strong work in fundamental poses, progressive sequencing to intermediate poses and lots of fun!

We invite those with a regular yoga practice including adho mukha vrkshasana (handstand) and urdhva dhanurasana (full bow pose/wheel pose) to participate. Please bring a yoga mat and a journal to each session.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
