From Roots to Fruits – A History of Modern Yoga

Have you ever wondered about yoga’s historical context?

Have you ever been asked if yoga is a religion?

Do you have concerns about cultural appropriation?

Are you confused about the various texts within the Hindu knowledge stream?

Do you want to understand more about the Bhagavad Gita, or the Upanishads, or the Vedas?

Join Molly for this exciting webinar – an opportunity to better understand modern yoga in its historical context, for just $95 for six hours of audio/video. This workshop will take the students back to the beginning, to the very first Veda, the oldest known literary work, and draw a winding line to present day yoga as it is practiced by most people in the west. This online course is the first in a series of yoga talks offered by Molly and is for anyone interested in teaching or practicing yoga and trying to understand both its history and impact.


  • Wednesdays and Fridays
  • July 5, 7, 12, 14
  • 8:00  am – 9:30 am PST. Online.

If you cannot attend any of the classes, you may watch/listen to the videos following the live class.

Cost: $95

About the teacher: Molly Lannon Kenny


Molly Lannon Kenny has been on the path to fulfilling her dharma since her earliest memories.  As a child, her parents would frequently take her and her brothers and sisters to the bookstore and let them wander for hours, lost in the magic of words and pictures.  Molly often found herself sitting cross legged, flipping through BKS Iyengar’s Light on Yoga, intrigued and entranced by the photos and the mystery behind them.  As a child, she was both physical and flexible, and often heard “you should do yoga!” from the adults around her, although it had very little meaning to her, but in fact, was most likely what sent her to the Yoga section of the bookstore in the seventies, long before Yoga was so widely accepted and practiced in the United States.

Life brought her many opportunities to share her fire and to realize her dream, but it was only when she discovered Yoga as a practice, rather than an odd set of circus tricks, did her specific path become clear to her.  Molly has been teaching Yoga to all levels of practitioners for over ten years, and has worked tirelessly to create outreach programs to people who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience joy and contentment through the timeless teachings of Yoga.

In 2001, she founded The Samarya Center for Humankind (ness), a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to individual transformation and radical social change. She created, published and trademarked a unique therapy method, Integrated Movement Therapy, built on these same principles of acceptance and inclusion.  She has written and taught extensively on the topics of Yoga as Therapy and Yoga as a means to individual and social change, and is widely known as a vibrant, funny, accessible teacher, with a heart of gold and a spirit of fire.
