About Me

One of the Bay Area's premier yoga instructors AND most provocative writers, Mark Morford has been leading fiery Vinyasa classes, workshops and retreats in SF and around the world since 1999. He’s also an author and an award-winning senior contributor at the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate (since 1997), and a contributing writer for numerous publications (HuffPo, Yoga Journal, Sex+Design, more). More recently, he created the ‘Yoga for Writers’ and ‘Everyday Sorcery for Urban Mystics’ programs for inspired yogis. He was raised by long-eyelashed callipygian wood nymphs and spoon fed dark chocolate, raw pomegranate seeds, Shaiva Tantra mantras and artisan bourbon until he could fly. Mark’s yoga is physically challenging and acutely reverential, a sinuous combination of the body’s most ecstatic cadences and Tantra’s 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.

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
