Molly Roberts  Molly believes that the challenges an individual faces in the world can be worked through on the mat. She turned to yoga over a decade ago as an antidote to the stresses of life and received her teacher certification in 2017 under the instruction of Daniel Orlanski and Liz Owen at The Arlington Center (Arlington MA). Her practice revolves around asana flows anchored and propelled by the breath, and recognition that our physical practice is tied to our emotional and spiritual well being.
