Molly completed her Master of Science in Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a Master of Fine Arts in Theater Arts and Dance from the University of Arizona.
Molly was introduced to yoga in 1993 in Tucson, Arizona while on a journey to keep herself healthy as a dancer. Although in coming from a dance background she connected immediately with the asana practice, Molly found herself intensely inspired to learn more about yogic philosophy. Molly’s interests in Taoism and Buddhist philosophy have shaped many of her endeavors, including her pursuit of learning Traditional Chinese Medicine which she now practices both privately as well as in several hospitals.
The concept of fluidity is pervasive in Molly’s approach to teaching, whether it is in dance, Chinese Medicine or yoga. There is not any part of life that is static, so naturally studying, exploring and experiencing life through movement makes sense. When we exhibit fluidity, we have the opportunity to ebb and flow, choose calm or excitation, connect with joy and experience clarity.
Molly believes that the stillness that many seek is not lack of movement, but rather an experience of living in which the energy of the body is fluid and uninhibited so that we might experience vibrance without chaos. Molly endeavors to facilitate in each person that she teaches, the start of or continuation of a journey of wonder and discovery.
