Molly is an International Yoga Teacher and Thai Bodyworker. Her roots are in Western Maryland and she is super excited to reconnect with the community! Since completing her Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 at Wise Living Yoga Academy in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Molly has continued to delve deeper into the healing arts. In recent years she has studied embodied anatomy and Thai Bodywork. Her sessions are tailored to the individual needs of her clients, guiding them into a place of deep peace and cosmic unity.
Thai bodywork origins date back 2,500 years ago to the time of the Buddha. The founder, Indian Doctor Jivaka Kumar Bhacca was a contemporary of the Buddha and personal physician to the Sangha (monks). In present-day India and Thailand he is respected and honored as the “Father of Medicine.” The theoretical foundation of Thai bodywork is based on the Pranayama Kosha (energy body) and 10 Sen (energy lines). The practitioner uses their thumbs, palms, elbows, knees, and feet to apply a combination of acupressure, gentle rocking and twisting, joint mobilizations, and assisted yoga stretches. Thai bodywork is done on a firm floor mat and performed as an act of loving kindness.
Thai bodywork is a beautiful form of nourishment for your body, mind and spirit. The benefits include increased flexibility, deeper breathing, digestive ease, and improved circulation. Muscles are stretched, emotional tension is released and the nervous system becomes relaxed.
Molly received her Thai Bodywork certification from the Sunshine Massage School of Traditional Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It is her passion to give healing through bodywork, yoga and meditation.
