Mollie teaches a traditional, philosophical, light hearted class that is accessible to all levels of practitioner. Her aim is to hold space for each individual and meet them wherever they are at in their own practice. She specialises in Yoga for Mental Health and has extensive experience in the mind-body connection, and the purification process that Yoga starts, therefore has the ability to hold space for her students through the myriad of emotions Yoga exposes us to in a kind, gentle and loving way.
Her passion lies in working one on one with practitioners to deepen their understanding of how Yoga and Meditation applies to them as an individual on a physiological and therapeutic level, and empowers her students to cultivate a self practice and become their own teachers. She also loves teaching Kids!
Mollie believes that by learning to apply the physical and philosophical practice of Yoga to our day to day lives - we will start to empower individuals to reconnect to themselves, which will in turn make the world a brighter, healthier, balanced, and a more sustainable place for ourselves, our families, our planet and for future generations.
She regularly holds events and workshops revolving around Marine Conservation and the practice of Yoga Asana and Philosophy, as well as teaches regular weekly classes around the Gold Coast.
