Welcome to Mighty, Molly!

Please join us in welcoming our newest addition to the schedule, Molly Kornblum! A former New Yorker who trained at Laughing Lotus in Union Square, Molly is a wonderful addition to our Mighty family. Interested in getting to know her? Well, as all the magazines say, we sat down with Molly to learn a little more about why she loves yoga and her life off the mat. Check it out below!

Mighty Yoga: How did you come to yoga?
Molly Kornblum: I used to do yoga with my mom when I was little. She taught me fun poses with names I could relate to like tree, and lion, and downward dog. We laughed a lot when we practiced. It wasn't until I took classes in college, however, that I really got hooked.

MY: Why did you decide to teach?
Molly: I wanted to teach yoga for many years before I actually got certified. I was working for “Corporate America” in New York City when my company relocated. Instead of moving with them, I took the awesome severance package and used the time and money to attend yoga school. It was the best decision I ever made!

MY: Since you're teaching a Basics class here, any tips for someone new to yoga?
Molly: I know it's hard, but try not to judge yourself when your practice doesn't look just like the girl's next to you. Try to accept yourself where you are. As long as you keep practicing, you'll get exactly where you need to go.

MY: What do you like to do off the yoga mat?
Molly: I'm in nursing school; nursing is a passion of mine. I play old-time music. I swing dance with my sweetie!

Meet Molly tonight for her first class, Basics 7:30pm -8:30pm!
