Noah grew up meditating with his family (both at home and in Siddha Yoga's Ashrams in India and New York) from the age of four. He began a regular hatha practice when he was 14 years old and has spent his life learning, gathering, experiencing, curating and embodying this vast subject. He has travelled the world absorbing much of what has been on offer. At one time or another, Noah has been a devoted student of most well-known asana “lineages,” and was/is certified to teach in the majority of those he has studied. Though Noah has experience learning with yoga’s most renowned and sometimes infamous master teachers, he has learned equally as much from his time with his many teachers whose names are not so easily recognized.
In 2003, Noah co-founded a Yoga Alliance registered yoga school (RYS) now known as "The Mazé Method" with his wife, Tracy. Since that time, the couple has pioneered the creation of a wide spectrum of yoga content that has set the standard for excellence in the world of yoga education. Together, they work tirelessly to help yoga teachers and practitioners around the world learn how to learn, sharpen their skills, increase the breadth of their knowledge, and enhance their lives. Noah has been blessed with an unusually long career teaching yoga online. He spent a decade helping to create and contribute to the success of a well-known website known as yogaglo. After nearly a decade of offering his classes on yogaglo and helping to curate the site’s content, Noah decided to create a platform of his own; and thus he and Tracy founded MazeOnYoga.com, a comprehensive virtual learning outlet with an ever growing library, where serious teachers and students of yoga come to study and practice. Mazeonyoga.com also offers and streams classes to students of all levels.
Noah believes that always remaining a student is essential to teaching. He remains devoted to learning and creating new pathways for teachers with all levels of experience to continue their learning and cultivation of their craft, skill and voice.
Noah lives in Los Angeles, along with Tracy, their two children Madeleine and Oliver; at least 4 rescued dogs, and (usually) at least one goldfish. These days Noah bakes bread, grows food, and carves wood in rare pockets of spare time. Writing this today, he is most proud of the sourdough starter he has managed to nurture to maturity.
