Yoga found Molly during a particularly demanding time in her life in 2002. For one hour, twice a week, she was told to “shed all negative thoughts of self” and “do” whatever felt right. No judgment, no yelling…just self-love and acceptance. The next few years were full of more challenges and changes, but she always found herself back on the mat.
After a snowboarding injury and two shoulder surgeries in 2010, Molly’s yoga practice became less about twisting into a giant pretzel and more about strengthening the mind-body connection through her recovery. Wanting to deepen her practice and share its healing benefits with others, Molly completed her 200-hour Teacher Training (RYT) in Honolulu, HI in August 2012. During training, Molly met her dearest friend and mentor Coco Zhang, whom she assisted and studied under for over 2 years. It was through Coco’s love, support, and encouragement that Molly found her voice and confidence as a teacher. In December 2013 she also completed a 120-hour Bhakti Flow Teacher Training under Rusty Wells and Jason Crandell in San Francisco, CA
Carefree and playful in her own practice; Molly believes you should never take yourself too seriously, especially on your yoga mat. Little stumbles, bursts of laughter, and occasional face-plants on your mat (and in your daily life) make you a stronger yogi and a more compassionate human being~
