I did my 200 YTT with Amy Petty and Noah Mazé in 2017 and returned to complete my 300 YTT with Noah in the fall of 2019. The first two modules of the 300 YTT were in person in LA, then due to the pandemic, we shifted the program to an online format. I was extremely impressed with the online program Noah and his team has put together! I felt engaged and challenged. The live zoom portions allowed connection to the diverse group of experienced students from all over the world, and a chance for students to bring our own questions and perspectives, allowing me to learn from and share with the other students as well as with Noah. They created a real learning community, which made the whole experience so much richer than I could have imagined an online program could be. The timing and pacing of the day made the online format manageable. Having ongoing access to the online materials and recordings for further study and review was a real bonus. I highly recommend this program! — Kathleen Brooks

This training was amazing! I began the 300-hour RYT training during COVID 19, to expand my yoga knowledge. I never realized it would be so fulfilling. I started studying every module, worksheets, assignments, practice, daily meditation, and recommended readings books. I can confirm that they exceeded my expectations. I’m still digesting all the material, notes, and this beautiful experience. I’m so grateful that I chose Noah as my teacher. A teacher who teaches from the heart with great passion. Noah, Tracy, and the team are an inspiration. Thank you so much for doing this. I will forever be grateful for this experience. It was exactly what I hoped for and exceeded my already high expectations. I highly recommend The Mazé Method teacher training program for anyone who is serious about teaching yoga and developing their skills as a teacher. I truly feel ready to keep my yoga teaching journey. — Annie Salado
This 300 RYT program is extremely in-depth and comprehensive – it is very clear that all involved at The Maze Method in putting together this training are passionate, professional, invested in your success and just plain amazing – truly a life-changing experience on many levels! –Teresa Torgerson

This training was amazing! Noah Maze and team are constantly growing and evolving their program. I feel like I could take this training in another year and it would be a completely new learning experience. I loved the style of teaching and how each educational category was woven throughout the specific educational category that we were focused on for the week. Simply brilliant. I felt inspired and engaged throughout the entire training. –Meghan Ruiz

I loved the way that Noah’s curriculum encouraged us to find our own creative voice as established teachers, while definitely pushing us past our comfort zones and illuminating new ways to approach our teaching practice. I was challenged but encouraged along the way and given many opportunities to contribute to group discussions and some very deep learning. I really loved the Modular structure of the course, which allowed me to fit it into my strange and inconsistent work schedule. They were incredibly accommodating from the start and his team of teachers was just outstanding, each with their own unique take on the same curriculum, inspiring us to take the content and make it our own too. Loved every minute and I can’t recommend their training programs enough.
I was very pleased with this training. Anatomy, asana, and philosophy were detailed in instruction and included a lot of repetition to make the material easier to absorb. Communication was prompt and the course was laid out in a well thought out methodical manner.

“Noah offers a solid immersion into alignment rooted in the Iyengar tradition and a mind-altering exposure into classical philosophy and texts. Over the course of this year long module I learned a lot about what works for me and how to infuse my teaching with a deeper awareness of anatomy and philosophy. I got exactly what I wanted out of training with him, and that it isn’t often that you can say that about a program. As a teacher for over 11yrs now and a student for almost 20yrs, as someone who’s studied with some of the world’s most respected yoga teachers, I got asked a lot why am I doing this training? Do I really “need it”? In my case, the answer was YES. What do we truly need other than what our heart pulls us to? I’ve learned not to question those pulls toward something. Usually that indicates a period of change for me. I continue to thank Noah and others who have helped shape and encourage me over the years. You have helped me open the door to growth and change.” -Aria

“I’ve been in several of your workshops over the years and in your advanced teacher training two summers ago at Yoga Tree in SF. When I heard it was national teacher appreciation day I immediately thought of you, and wanted to send my gratitude for all the inspiration you’ve given me over the years. I’ve learned so many things and wonderful cueing from you, but the thing that stands out the most with me is how you yoga with humor. It’s always current and appropriate humor and seems effortless to you, and your delivery is always spot on! And for me it’s what I wait for in your teaching and what keeps yoga light and friendly and it seems to bring everyone together and into community spirit, as we practice together. Thank you Noah for all you’ve taught me, and for your “Noah gaze” … that direct eye contact with students in a class is amazing! Your gaze is as intense and so natural … what a gift to be able to connect with people in that way. With appreciation” -Kathy

“I’m sitting here about to begin working on my homework for the day but I’m still buzzing from our practice this morning. I’ve been reflecting on how much has changed since I went to your workshop at Tough Love last January to today. I was mesmerized by your teaching then and I’m beyond mesmerized now. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all you give. Thank you to you and Tracy for providing me with a scholarship so I could have this amazing opportunity to study with you, that has not only changed my teaching, but has changed my life. Every time I go out to LA for another module, it gets harder and harder to leave the safe, enriching community you all have created. I have already learned so much from you. The power of your words inspires. I know when we speak, you give me 100% of your attention and energy. I’ve been having a bit of a hard time outside of yoga recently, and have realized what a gift that is. So thank you for that as well. I can’t wait to continue this journey. I am already saddened knowing we only have 2 modules left. But I know that just because the training will be over, my journey will never end. You have given us amazing resources to continue with, but you have also sparked something within me that I was struggling to light before. Much love and gratitude” -Madison

“If you have the opportunity to study with Noah Mazé and the The Mazé Method faculty– do not miss it! These are some of the most gifted and intelligent teachers currently living. I will be a lifelong student of theirs.” —Shannon Brasovan

“This experience has been amazing from start to finish. Noah’s ability to impart his vast knowledge in a practical and understandable way is what makes him such a talented leader.”—Kim Munro

“Noah Mazé is exceptional at meeting students where they are. He gave me direct feedback on my teaching, helping me identify my strengths and see where I could improve. He encouraged me to venture out of my comfort zone one step at a time and provided tools that helped me immediately. Since taking teacher training with Noah, I am more clear, concise and direct. My sequencing is more skillful and I am better able to read the energy of the room and modify as needed. I now teach from a more authentic place.”  —Jennifer Davis

“Rocky really wowed me. He is a rock star and I feel so privileged to have observed and taken in information from him. Rocky is a distinctly colorful individual who happens to embody a similar level of excellence to Noah. I fell in love with Rocky in this program and would highly recommend him to everyone as a teacher and a guide.”  —Carol King

“This experience has been transformative, although in quieter, subtler, and more profound ways than that word often connotes. There is so much I could say, but the one thing that stands out is what Noah exemplifies; what he models in the room. I’ve learned a very great deal from him. More even than the quality of information offered (which is second to none), I have learned this through Noah’s example of rejecting nothing, but applying critical thinking to everything.”  —Martin Collyer

“I am so completely and fully amazed by the The Mazé Method program. In my 200-hour I felt like it was pretty amazing, but thought maybe that was the newness of it all.  When I did the Teacher Tuneup in LA and mingled with experienced teachers from all over, I started to realize how amazing my training had been compared to other 200-hr programs. And now, participating in the 300-hour, I feel like I’m almost ahead of the game. –Jill Fenske

“The quality of teaching I have received from The Mazé Method is so excellent, thorough, encouraging and wise. I am truly blessed by this experience. I am Noah’s forever student.”  —Madison Moore

“Noah and his amazing team are a catalyst for growth. This training was hard enough to make me grow exponentially, but soft enough to remind me that I was capable to do it.”  —Jessica Waters

“Noah’s teacher training is education based, and designed to create an authentic foundation for a lifetime of studying yoga and learning to teach it skillfully. In my opinion, 200 hours (and honestly even 500 hours to some extent) of yoga teacher training seems rudimentary. Make no mistake, Noah’s trainings will definitely allow one to start teaching yoga straight away. Creating a basis and methodology for continuing study, however, I believe is the strength of the program. Noah’s training is born of his extensive and diverse background in all of the major systems of yoga as well as the underlying philosophy from which it comes. His training is non-dogmatic, and his style of teaching is both dynamic and supportive in a manner that pushes students in a reasonable and compassionate manner. His training invites and inspires students to establish a methodology for ongoing study and deepening of teaching skills. Three days into my initial 200 hour training, I enrolled for the whole 500 hour program, as Noah’s knowledgeable, direct, and kind teachings were perfect for me.”  —Mark Meers

“This is the hardest and the most rewarding training I’ve ever done. I really loved it. I love the non-dogmatic approach and the openness to other points of view. The content is solid. The instructors are all knowledgeable. I felt inspired and supported. Noah is a bad-ass teacher and amazing human being. I loved everyone on this team – thank you all!”  —Aria Morgan

“I would wholeheartedly recommend this training. A lot of 300 hour trainings will teach you aspects of yoga. The The Mazé Method training is singularly focused on teaching you how to teach those aspects, and that’s a critical distinction. You get the content, but more than that you get the skills to deliver that content to your students.”  —Taylor Trussell

“This experience was transformative. I felt guided, yet did not feel micro-managed. I was challenged, affirmed, inspired, and was reminded constantly of what a gift it is to be a yogi and have such a beautiful experience with gifted and talented teachers and peers.”  —Willis Johnson

“I came into this program knowing very little and as we progressed through the modules and online discussions, I noticed that I developed good and strong habits that are affecting more than just my teaching yoga. This training has deepened my own practice and my understanding of the poses as well as of the history and discipline surrounding yoga. The program has introduced me to a new community of people and I have made friends and family as we struggle, learn and prevail together.”  —Nicholas Trubachick

“The improvements to my own understanding and practice are overwhelming to me. I did, of course, expect to experience such developments…but the ease with which they came are truly a testament to Rocky and Noah’s formatting their expertise, and the proficiency of their assistants. Their breadth of knowledge and earnest desire to share what they know has inspired me as a teacher. I have learned so much and have become so passionate about sharing my practice with others!” –Dana Cape

“I loved the experience and signed up for the 300 hour program even before I finished [the 200-hour]. Aside from just being able to focus on yoga for 8 hours a day, a week at a time, with incredible instructors, I enjoyed working with my classmates and watching us all grow as yoga practitioners and instructors.” –Jeff Swanson

“I have known Carrie and Noah for about 8 years and when the opportunity came to learn YTT through her and The Mazé Method, I had no question in signing up.  Even though I was already committed to full-time work, technical Master’s school program and a dance academy, I knew this is what I wanted to do. I have no regrets, even though it can be hard balancing it all, since this is something I truly wanted to do and went in with full commitment. Surprisingly, the program has been like a mini “yoga retreat” for me each weekend and so has actually helped me focus better on my other tasks by taking time for myself to do something I’m passionate about. The skills from the training have translated into all other aspects in my life: relationships at home/work, clarity in my leadership/speech,  self-awareness in my own practice, and much more. I’m so grateful to have Carrie and this program available to us and sad to see the training almost coming to an end!” –Priti Shah

“While teaching yoga, I am flooded with just how much I love this asana practice! It also occurred the week before, after returning from your last module! I still remember the first time I studied with you. It was over 10 years ago, perhaps closer to 15, when the kula was full of amazing yogis. You stood out. Your physical prowess, yes, but your level-headed calm demeanor, your razor sharp clarity of mind, and the most down to earth personality, set you apart as a remarkable teacher who could make this world accessible to almost anyone! You opened the seams and made it easy to step into! I know those were my first impressions. All these years later I am amazed even more! As I have learned so much, I still sit in this seat and want to thank you for being the amazing yogi you are.” —David Henry

“I am very lucky to have shared this experience with Noah. If every yoga teacher had the opportunity to attend a training – or even a workshop with Noah, yoga would be vastly improved and well respected. Noah empowers his students to be their own best teachers and offers his endless support. I was impressed with his ability to cater to each of his students’ different learning styles. Noah holds space beautifully and gives everyone in his presence a chance to speak and be heard – and he listens before he responds, which is so rare to see.” —Hannah Bell

“This experience calls you to dig deep and bring your best self out into the light. I honestly believe I was transformed in the process. My life mirrored this evolution and learning process in unexpected ways, as I went from teacher to studio owner. This program gave me the tools and confidence to take on this challenge in leadership. I now find myself in a position where I can utilize all of the skills I have acquired during training. This program is not just about becoming a skillful teacher, but becoming a leader. I am truly grateful to have been a part of this training. I simply cannot imagine what my life would be like without this experience. Thank you for making me a better person!”  —Veronica King

“Authentic, fun, and expanding – three words to describe the 500 hour teacher training. Noah is a true master of his craft and to have the chance to practice and learn from him is a gift. Noah’s 500 hour teacher training is for serious students who want to go deep within their own practice, and become a more authentic teacher. Noah is the real deal. He offers simple, yet extremely detailed teachings that are fun, and to the point. Noah’s passion for yoga clearly shows through his teachings, and studying with him has powerfully changed my teaching, my own practice, and my life.”  —Nick Florino

“Over the course of my 14 years of yoga study and 6 years as a teacher of yoga I have noticed the value of Noah’s capacity for responsiveness and feedback toward empowerment and cultivating self responsibility and self-directed learning. This is why I choose to take teacher training with Noah above all else, because I learn effectively and take my insights directly into my teaching and life after my studies with Noah. Study with Noah is worth every cent.”  —Caroline Sereda

“I would highly recommend the The Mazé Method 200 hour teacher training because it’s not just about learning to teach yoga poses. It’s learning about yourself. It’s about individual growth. That’s why I chose to study with The Mazé Method. Through this training I’ve become much more observant and gained awareness and understanding of what the poses do for our bodies. I joined the program to deepen my knowledge, but it has also been about evolvement in my own being. It’s scary, exciting, very emotional and wonderful for me.”  —Laura Wang

“I would highly recommend The Mazé Method training. Noah is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but supportive. The training is refined in order for most effective learning for all students. Through this training are developing a whole new skill set and this learning continues far beyond the training itself. I have never felt stronger or more confident or so inspired.”  —Robin Petering

“Studying with Noah has opened up possibilities I hadn’t known existed. As a result I am going through a major growth period.  My role within my community is beginning to shape and is forming into that genuine connection I have always longed for. The decision to train with Noah came when I decided to teach yoga instead of pursuing a career in nursing. As a yoga teacher and registered nurse I am now working hard to teach the art of yoga in my community. A community needs yoga teachers that have varied and vast knowledge, especially when reaching folks who have quite variable physical, mental, financial, and social conditions. The tools I’ve been given by Noah are invaluable. I haven’t been indoctrinated into a specific methodology, rather, I’ve been shown how to teach the methodology of my choosing based of the course on my experience, continued learning, and the needs of my community. Noah Mazé is amazing. I encourage yoga teachers needing direction to seek his guidance.”  —Natalia Callard

“Whether you are contemplating a teacher training, or just want to immerse deeper into your yoga studies, may I suggest studying with Noah Mazé. Your time and money will be a worthy investment in yourself, your yoga and to the students you teach. Noah is the real deal. He teaches with skillful precision, steeped in immense knowledge and artful expression. The environment Noah creates, whether in person, or online is rooted in dignity and safety for everyone. His classes are intelligent, spot on funny, yet always sensitive. I have laughed and cried in his presence and have never felt diminished by my vulnerabilities.  I have learned so much from Noah. He always offers more than I expect to learn every time I study with him. He never looses sight what an in-depth endeavor yoga is and answers my questions from a place of context, integrity and wisdom. Noah represents everything about yoga I aspire to as a teacher and a student. If you have the opportunity to train with Noah you will find yourself coming back to learn from him over and over. Noah Mazé has opened my eyes, heart and mind far beyond my yoga mat. He never ceases to inspire me to be my best self and I am forever grateful.” —Nancy Dales

“I took a chance last year and enrolled in a training program with Noah. It was a lot of time, travel, money and study to invest with a teacher I had not yet met in person. But wow, what a great decision I made! The training absolutely delivered, and to say Noah is a really great yoga teacher doesn’t give him justice ­ he’s so much more.  Noah’s teachings are right on key with my life. He reminded me of the power of the asana itself through his direct teaching methods. And Noah is keeping me infinitely curious about the rich history of the teachings because I see so clearly that even with his mass of knowledge he always has an open, beginner’s mind. Thanks in part to Noah’s example I have fully re-engaged in my ‘yoga career’ as teacher, student, studio co-owner and stay-at-home-mom. I am more present now in my days with my toddler and have carved a more satisfying schedule in my roles as studio owner and yoga teacher.  And best of all I am regularly attending two weekly public classes just for me. I look forward to studying with Noah for a long time to come and recommend his trainings to anyone seeking direct and effective teaching methodologies that will make a difference on and off the mat from day one.”  —Betsy Poos

“Just as his teaching style is extremely focused and clear, Noah’s talent of getting to the essence of what it takes to bring instructors to the next level of their teaching ability is spot on. He facilitates development of authenticity in teacher trainees as his respect for others runs deep. I found myself in ‘very good company’ during my teacher training as Noah and his wife Tracy do a beautiful job in connecting their yoga community. Fabulous experience and my own students are reflecting back to me that my teaching has become stronger.”  —Abbie Britton

“This training has been the best decision I have made this year! I am really enjoying myself and learning a ton! Thank you for being you!” —Tiffany Porte

“Noah’s teaching style was very funny, extremely knowledgeable, and powerful.  I really enjoyed every class from the beginning throughout the end.  His kind and open style offered such freedom for students to accept the challenge or to feel comfortable where we were on each given day. Having his family attend our super fun Talent Show seemed to show his commitment to his teaching and demonstrated such respect and love for his family and his students. I do hope to have another opportunity to participate as a student for future events.”  —Stacy Muccino

“Thank you again for such a great week. I learned crazy amounts and am thankful for the opportunity to continue to refine and expand my knowledge and experience as a teacher. I appreciate your willingness to help us find a framework and methodology to teaching. Your cues are spot on, direct, specific and some of the best I have seen. You definitely got the wheels in my head spinning. I am so lucky to have you as my teacher, and I appreciate you! What you guys do at The Mazé Method is brilliant and I am so grateful to be a part of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”  —Alison King Tigges

“This workshop was wonderful in all ways! Noah taught with wisdom, humor and grace to inspire a new awareness in yoga practice. His knowledge of yoga and anatomy of the human body was just awesome. I feel so blessed to have been a part of this workshop.”  —Debra Williams

“This was the most holistic, detailed, serious and fun yoga instruction I have ever received. The group was lead with great skill across the ability range within group throughout the program. I learned a lot. I grew in my yoga practice and as a person and had a great time.”  —Esalen Workshop participant

“Noah was the most excellent teacher I have had in recent experience. He was precise, informative, encouraging, warm and wise. He brought out the best in us – on every level.”  —Esalen Workshop participant

“The Mazé Method training with Rocky Heron this past week could not have gone any better! Everyone is incredibly pleased with the curriculum and they are loving Rocky (I am too of course)!  He is doing an excellent job of teaching the TT and I feel very confident in him and his knowledge of both yoga and with the The Mazé Method program!  This course is raising the bar for everyone in the yoga community and I am so happy that we worked this out! Thank you so much for your support and desire to create a TT program that works and creates better students and teachers which in turn extends the knowledge and growth of yoga to others!”  —Tiffany Porte

“It is very clear to me that all of the The Mazé Method teachers are very knowledgeable, skillful and they know their resources.”  —Hella N.

“I would describe the experience as delightfully challenging, explorative and interesting as well as abundantly supportive. I truly and honestly cannot put into words how much this program has touched my heart and inspired my life’s progression.”  —Lindsey Orellano

“I would absolutely recommend this training, mostly because of you, Noah. Your understanding of yoga as a physical practice, a psychological, and a philosophical practice are so rich and authentic. There is not a question I have that I don’t feel you could not answer. You have done the study thoroughly yourself and therefore I trust being your student, and I recommend others to do the same. Thank you for your time, your dedication, and your care with each student. Your space felt safe, warm, and encouraging while also being challenging. My boundaries were pushed and my capacity was expanded. I have a new knowledge to articulate. What a gift. I thank you ALL!”  ­­—Ivorie Jenkins

“I find this training to be top notch in terms of quality and quantity of material provided and made available, as well as support and openness and communication. This training goes above and beyond for any student wanting to deepen their skills, gain confidence, and reach a new level of mastery in yoga. Noah’s unique experience has produced an unparalleled leader, facilitator, and guide. He is inspiring and exhibits an unparalleled mastery of teaching. For some time now, I have been contemplating the notion, “be impeccable with your word.” I tried to think of people who embody this and would often come up empty until I met Noah. Noah is careful with his words, exhibits accuracy, accountability, and thoughtful articulation. These are important qualities in an effective leader. When Noah speaks, people listen – and they take it to heart. Along with that, he also embodies creativity, playfulness, humor, sensitivity, and ardor. All of these qualities make for a very well-rounded, inspiring leader and I feel honored to have received guidance and to have learned such a great deal, not just about yoga, but about life.”  —Carol King
