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), 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. 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 both physically challenging and acutely reverential, a sinuous combination of the body’s most ecstatic cadences and 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.
