Yoga and Social Change with Molly Lannon Kenny

In this super fun online class we will enjoy a brief overview of Sanskrit in general, and then look at and learn the basics of standard transliteration.

We will then practice on several short sutras as well as names of poses and their component parts. A great way for students and teachers alike to improve pronunciation while learning more about these texts and their true message.

Schedule:

  • Saturday, Sept. 15th, 2018
  • 8:00 am – 10:00 pm PST

This is a part of an ongoing online series called Dropping In, with two hour online classes on a variety of yoga related subjects. These classes are open to the public and required for students pursuing a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification through Samarya Yoga School. You may also purchased recorded versions of Introduction to the Bhagavad Gita, Wisdom Teachers, and Pranayama Basics or watch for the next live versions.

About the Teacher: Molly Lannon Kenny

Molly-Lannon-Kenny-Samarya-CenterMolly 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.
