Noah Maze in the shala July 15-19th!

Join Noah Mazé for this dynamic theme-based vinyasa class series. Tales of Hanuman of Five- Faces (Panchamukha Anjaneya) inspires and informs this series of vinyasa flow classes. Each class begins with story time, interpretive symbolism, subtle body correlations (kundalini, chakra) and mantra practice to awaken our creativity and imagination. Then we become the story through breath based vinyasa flow classes sequenced to embody the qualities of the heroic heart. Come ready for story time, continuous breath based rhythmic movement, intelligent and progressive sequencing all while working hard, playing deeply and getting your sweat on. Bring your adventurous spirit, a towel for class, hydration, and a change of clothes for after. $40 drop in.

Arrival Info

Please arrive 10 minutes early to check in and set up your mat.
Mats and towels are available for you to borrow.  Our studio offers a spacious comfy lobby, plenty of cubby space for your belongings, wonderful showers and a generous amount of parking spaces!


Here’s how to find us at IX

Park in one of the small lots on the side of the building across from the art park (not the news complex side). Look for a big sculpture of an upside down man on the roof. Walk all the way down the outdoor corridor under the sculpture. Enter the building through the double glass doors. The studio is the first biz on the left after you enter the building. The door says M3 and Opal’s sign is down a little lower in the window.
