About Molly Mitchell-Hardt
Yoga transformed Molly’s life, and during challenging experiences, even felt like her saving grace. To her, yoga is a way of life; a path that transcends the physical into the spiritual. As a teacher, she aims to provide a safe and empowering environment for practitioners to experience their own unique transformation.
Molly's yogic journey took her to India where she completed 300 hours of training with Swami Santhiprasad and later another 125 hours with Annie Carpenter back in Venice, CA. She learned the ancient philosophies behind Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga, but most importantly, how to live a meditative, yogic lifestyle. Her goal is to carry the torch, exemplifying this way of life through her practice each and every day. Molly is currently a graduate student at Pacifica Graduate Institute earning her masters in Counseling Psychology as well as pursuing her Marriage and Family Therapy License.
Molly is the owner and founder of Hamna Shida Yoga and co-founder of a meditation movement called APSARA. She has had the opportunity to share her passion of yoga and meditation in many unique places including Panama with Kalu Yala, Utah with Summit, Austin, TX at SXSW, New York City, Connecticut, and all the way up the Coast of California with APSARA. She looks forward to many more adventures and opportunities to share what she has dedicated her life to, self awareness and personal growth through mindfulness, self study, and healing.
