Mark Morford

One of the Bay Area’s premier yoga instructors, Mark Morford has been leading fiery, inspiring Vinyasa classes, workshops and retreats in SF and around the world since 1999. He’s also an author and an award-winning senior contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate, a contributing writer for numerous publications (HuffPo, Yoga Journal, Sex+Design, many more) and author of The Daring Spectacle: Adventures in Deviant Journalism, as well as the Apothecary iOS app. More recently, he created the ‘Yoga for Writers’ and ‘Everyday Sorcery for Urban Mystics’ programs for inspired yogis.

Mark’s yoga is both physically challenging and acutely reverential, a molten combination of the body’s most ecstatic cadences and Shaiva Tantra’s most lucid metaphysics, all designed to tonify the body, guide the frenzied Self toward liberation and burn off toxic text messages and reckless illusions. Simple, really.

Fire in the Sky retreat - With Mark Morford

Calistoga, CA, USA


Warm, intense, mystical
Mark possesses a keen ability to not only hold space, but significantly develop the container of energy for yoga practitioners. The style can best be described a devotional moving meditation which unfolds as a fluid, seamless dance wherein prana is explored, moved and becomes more discernible. The retreat was a great well of replenishment for not only my personal practice, but also inspiring for own my teachings. I particularly appreciated the morning mediation space to begin my day. Additionally, the inclusion of astrological shamanistic bodywork added yet another layer of breadth & depth to this amazing summer weekend retreat. ~ Loren Altura Yoga
