Molly is a Sonoma County-based yoga instructor. Her vision is to spark and inspire students’ desires to improve their lives with yoga. She loves connecting with people and being witness to their developments and changes as they evolve into their best selves through yoga. She is open and friendly and creates a space for people to feel great in their bodies, minds and spirits.
She began taking Forrest Vinyasa and Bikram style classes in 2009 to help heal her atrophied leg. Her yoga journey has not only prevented surgery in this leg, but led to unraveling and letting go of tightness, emotional boundaries, issues of self-worth and so much more! With yoga, Molly has learned what it's like to really listen to and connect with who she is at her core, and to follow her Source energy, her intuition.
Molly’s yoga path has been and continues to be the most fulfilling and interesting journey she’s ever experienced. It has allowed her to set clear intentions and tune into her intuition to shape her reality. Yoga makes it possible for her to live more comfortably in all ways, body, mind and spirit, which she believes is the ultimate purpose of life. Molly has discovered that teaching yoga is her life’s work. She offers and facilitates a safe space for people to let go of that which plagues them, to recognize their potential shields and then to move them aside and live more freely!
With clear cueing and a positive attitude she leads students through well-sequenced classes allowing them to stay safe as they progress and learn challenges and up-levels. She has taken several trainings and workshops with Ana Forrest and has been teaching since 2011. Learn more at www.mollyvogelyoga.com.

Creativity in Sequencing with Danielle Kelleher, MA

Deepen your personal experience within your own body and learn to create more real sequencing. If you are going to practice in a real way/teach in a real way, it has to come from a completely viable and changeable source. Learn to trust yourself and all the weirdness and love of yoga that is your true voice and body.
Danielle has 15 years of teaching experience and 700+ hours of training.
The Spirit of Touch with Kelliann Reginato
Oct 14 & 15 (12 - 5pm)
Practice seeing people on both physical and emotional levels and perfect the art of assisting all body types as individual spirits - aesthetically, physically, verbally and spiritually! Celebrate each practice as an opportunity to engage in ceremony with mind, body & Spirit. We will dive into weaving emotions and intentions into our yoga practice and will study how to SEE students and ourselves both within and outside of the physical realm. This module is all about TOUCHING the hearts, bodies and spirits of others.
Structural Alignment with Molly Vogel
Oct 21 & 22 (12 - 5pm)
This module will focus on the details of how to do Forrest Yoga poses, as well as the principles of skeletal alignment. When our structure is properly aligned in poses, they become easier! This ease of movement allows us to both get out of tightness and/or pain in poses and progress into more advanced and balanced variations. We will hone in on the details of alignment to breathe fully, to learn what, where and how to feel, and to explore healing moves. We will learn how to feel when in correct alignment and how to practice in a way that is truly strengthening. Additionally, we will discuss the effects of continuing to do poses unaligned, a process which inhibits us from safely going deeper or progressing!
Restoration of Self with Sarah Klein
Oct 28 & 29 (12 - 5pm)
This module will guide students and teachers in the direction of using yoga to restore balance physically, emotionally and spiritually. Learn how to guide meditation and also develop a deeper understanding of sequencing classes that are more restorative and appropriate for students with injuries or other limitations. Lifestyle and Ayurvedic medicine will be studied as a means of creating more internal balance. Additionally, this module will work with yoga for grief, emotional healing and stress reduction. Basic safety in Pre/Postnatal yoga will also be explored.
