|Meet The Business Owner|
Innately perceptive, wise beyond her years and wildly passionate about, well, every little thing that crosses her path, Molly is a force to be reckoned with. Whether she's devouring a cupcake, scoping out the next can't-live-without-it piece of fashion for the YC boutique, ripping down the face of a wave (in a bikini she designed herself!), or teaching one of her insanely cathartic yoga classes, Molly applies a level of delight and determination that is truly one of a kind. Spend a few minutes with this dynamic woman and it makes perfect sense that she should be the owner of a yoga studio and boutique at an age when most of us are still trying to figure out what we want to be when we grow up. Molly's unique teaching style is both intense and focused but lightened with creativity, compassion and humor. She believes that this balance of effort and surrender is key to unlocking the awareness of ones true nature. Molly has studied intensely with Chuck Miller, Maty Ezraty & Annie Carpenter.
