Samarya Yoga 200 hour Residential Teacher Training
Apr 13, 2018| $3790 – $4370
The Samarya Yoga Teacher Training is dedicated to creating a welcoming space where students of all levels can learn the basics of yoga, in order to practice, teach and work towards healing ourselves and our communities. Our mission is to foster individual transformation as a means to radical social change.
If you are thinking of becoming a yoga teacher, or you are a dedicated student wanting to heighten your understanding of the practice, if you want to learn to teach through a lens of social justice and radical inclusion, if you want to learn therapeutic aspects of yoga as an extension of your own spiritual practice, if you want to make yoga accessible to all who walk through your doors, if you want to truly be of service through offering the practices and teachings of yoga from the depth of the tradition, meaning the depth of your own experience and awakening, the depth of love itself, then we invite you to study with Samarya.

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.
