  • "As a holistic psychotherapist, I have studied Yoga Nidra for many years. Naturally, I’ve listened to many different versions of this ancient, healing practice. Molly’s is one of my favorites. I use it regularly and recommend it to all my patients. It’s excellent for post-traumatic growth, insomnia, anxiety, relaxation, addiction recovery, and for people who think they can’t meditate."

  • "Yoga is a gift for yourself and Molly is a gift to Yoga. Molly is a wonderful teacher and skilled facilitator – I am always impressed with her deep knowledge of yoga as a science and a philosophy. But it is her heart and compassion that truly makes her stand out. In this fast paced and sometimes unsettling modern western world, yoga allows me to bring my mind, body and soul back into balance. Molly has helped me cultivate an atmosphere of peace and serenity that I never realized was possible. Her calm assurance is infectious, and her powerful message of self-acceptance and self-love – you are whole just as you are, there is a part of you that is untouched by all that has happened to you –resonates deeply. Treat yourself and grasp the opportunity to deepen your physical, mental and spiritual practice with this warm and empowering guiding spirit. Thank you for all you have helped me realize in myself, Molly!"
