    He is too verbose.
    • Noah Maze     Apr 21st, 2014
      I can see how you might feel this way Chrystal. I am very specific and give a lot of instruction, but I try to be concise and give only the information that is needed. My aim in instructing this way is to teach my students how to do yoga proficiently. Thanks for taking class! I hope you will give it another go sometime. :)

    This was spectacular. I'm so glad I stumbled across it - I've already surprised myself this year with previously unknown flexibility and strength. Thank you!
    • Noah Maze     Apr 21st, 2014
      That's wonderful Marcie! I hope you keep on discovering the flexibility and strength you have within. Have a wonderful 2014!
  • Rachel Odhner     Jan 9th, 2013
    The years go by, and I still have yet to be in your presence. However I feel connected to the spirit of this practice and I know we will meet somewhere down the road. Thank you for your dedication and for holding the highest vision for yourself, for humanity and in your teaching. You are one of the many blessings in my life. Strong and clear and true, through the tests of time. I bow in recognition of that teaching within myself.

    When inspiration seems hard to come by, I can always count on receiving some from your classes...even here in snowy Scotland. Thanks again for another heart-opening sequence!
  • Noah Maze     Dec 18th, 2011
    Thanks Jo!
  • Noah Maze     Dec 18th, 2011
    Thanks Lara; time flies when you are in the groove!
  • Lara Swinarton     Dec 17th, 2011
    So I am starting this 30:30 series a year late but better late than never! I LOVED this class! I actually started it thinking "there's no way I can get through 90 minutes" but not only did I forget time while doing this class and do the full 90, I did a few of the poses I did not know I could do! Thank you!!!! Fantastic~

  • Joanne Whitford     Dec 7th, 2011
    Noah,
    Kicked my b..tt as always! Love this.
  • Noah Maze     Feb 21st, 2011
    I love that we all get to take class together! From Telluride to Spain and beyond... @Temple, the wrists take time to build up sufficient strength. Downward dog is a great pose, as the angle on the wrist is much less severe, so it is a great pose to build up time and strength in.
  • Debbie Barran     Feb 21st, 2011
    My first online class and I learned so so much; yoga is teaching me about life and my connection to it and my possibilities in this life.
  • Stefanie BAY     Feb 20th, 2011
    Great class!
  • Temple Hightower     Feb 16th, 2011
    You are a great teacher! So thorough. My dear friend and I are doing the 30 day challenge and we loved this class. Any ideas for someone who has wrist trouble? They are getting stronger, but I just can't seem to do some of the poses that put a lot of weight on the wrists..
  • Margaret Monnier     Feb 1st, 2011
    Thank you for this beautiful class. I'm so grateful to enjoy your teaching all the way from Spain!

  • Noah Maze     Jan 1st, 2011
    Oh, and Michelle, I'll be in Dublin in January if you ever want to study in person!
  • Noah Maze     Jan 1st, 2011
    Hi Gayle,

    Yes, I am teaching a workshop this weekend with Darren and Christina. We are having a blast. With proper planning, it's amazing how many places I'm able to be at once! Love to you, Noah
  • Gayle Jann     Jan 1st, 2011
    Hey Noah, I thought you were teaching a workshop at Yoga Oasis with Darren and Christina. When did you teach this class? Just curious. ;-)
  • Noah Maze     Jan 1st, 2011
    Thank you all for your sweet and meaningful feedback. It means a great deal to me to be able to share this first day of the year and perhaps contribute to your processes of setting intentions. I am so thrilled to be able to share this yoga with you in this way. Thank you for supporting me in the very best job ever.

    With wishes for a healthy abundant year for each and all of you. Noah

    aloha, Padma
  • Gayle Jann     Jan 1st, 2011
    Noah, That was awesome. Gave me a greater understanding of visvamatrasana and different ways of teaching full vasistasana. Loved the theme of Ganesh writing the story as well.
  • Alyson Raskin     Jan 1st, 2011
    Noah I cannot think of any better way to start the New Year. Thank you for such a powerful and sacred class.
  • Carol Allen     Jan 1st, 2011
    Perfect theme for the first day of 2011 that was exemplified by the practice-set your aspirations and then break them apart step by step to manifest them. Truly, Noah you gave us the tools and inspiration to achieve our intentions for 2011.
