Om Shanti: A Yoga Blog is expanding! Throughout 2013, I’ll be introducing several new contributors on the site. These yogis all share my love of Ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga, but each will bring his or her own unique perspective and voice to the discussion. In the coming months, expect to see a growing range of articles, videos, interviews, and other yoga-related content on Om Shanti.
First up is Molly Lubetkin, a Chicago-area yoga teacher who will begin contributing to the blog this month. She’ll be writing on asanas, reviewing yoga products, and reflecting on her experiences as an instructor in the local yoga scene. Read her bio below, and keep an eye out for her first article, which will be posted shortly.
Molly is a Chicago-based yoga teacher who teaches vinyasa and teen classes around the city and suburbs. She was drawn to yoga by the challenge to strengthen and relax her body and mind. Growing up with ADHD, Molly found that yoga allowed her to do the seemingly impossible – slow down and accept her body, mind and self. She received her 200-hr RYT certification at Hot House Yoga in Iowa City while studying at the University of Iowa where she majored in English and creative writing. She continues to study under the remarkable guidance of Mac McHugh, Gina Saka, Quinn Kearney, Claire Mark, Geri Bleier and Tom Quinn.
