Molly received her Pilates certification from Balanced Body University in 2015, after completing a two year teaching apprenticeship at EHS Pilates. Originally from Indiana, Molly moved to San Francisco in 2006 to pursue her MFA at California College of the Arts, where she focused in site-specific dance performance and sculptural costuming. Chronic pain brought her to Pilates in 2011, as the repetitive stresses of dance and office desk life left her with sore knees, shoulders, and low back pain. Within a few months of weekly mat and reformer classes, she was able to move pain free and made huge gains in her dance technique, making her a Pilates convert for life.
For Molly, the power of Pilates is in its adaptability to meet you where you are and build your inner body knowledge to help you move toward your goals, whether that is walking with ease or training for the circus. Her approach to teaching combines release and centering work with a little movement education and a lot of sweat so you walk out into your day feeling longer, stronger, and more grounded. Her goal is to empower each client to be a wise steward of their own body and connect to the joy in moving well. In her free time, Molly continues her studio art practice and enjoys hiking, archery, and her newest obsession, aerial dance.
