January 21-27, 2017

 

This 6-day yoga adjustment training and retreat in Mexico is open to yoga teachers from any training or tradition.

Each day will include morning class with Molly, a delicious breakfast, and four hours of adjustment training, with the remainder of the day open to rest, restore, and adventure!

molly-headshotMolly Lannon Kenny, MS-CCC left her clinical position as a speech language pathologist in a large HMO to become the founder and director of The Samarya Center for Humankind (ness). She is the creator of Integrated Movement Therapy and the lead teacher on the Samarya Yoga two-week residential intensive. She is  nationally recognized innovator, researcher and  educator in the field of yoga-based therapy. She is past Vice President of The International Association of Yoga Therapists, and was the board liaison to the committee for creating educational standards for the field of Yoga Therapy. She is currently a member of the advisory board to the Yoga Service Council and was the keynote speaker at the 2014  Northwest Yoga Conference, where she will be featured again in March 2016.

Molly has written extensively on the subject of yoga as therapy and is published in multiple editions of The International Journal of Yoga Therapy and Yoga Therapy Today. She has been extensively featured for her work with special populations, as well as for her commitment to social change, in various press and publications  including The New York Times, The Seattle Times, Yoga Northwest and  Yoga Journal, the  BBC, and on MSNBC. She has been invited all over the world to teach, including being invited to be the academic advisor to a new yoga therapy program in Tel Aviv, Israel.

She has worked with literally thousands of students all over the world, from children with severe autism to adults at end of life to returning veterans to people with chronic illness and PTSD to folks with para and quadriplegia. She has created programs for adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness and written protocols for people suffering from traumatic brain injuries. She has also worked extensively with people of all ages in the prime of their practice. There are few teachers who have the depth and breadth of experience that Molly brings to her teaching.

She was the host of a bi-weekly podcast entitled Transparent: Yoga and Everyday Life for over two years,  in which she connected ancient ideas and principles of yoga philosophy to everyday life.  Her book, No Gurus Came Knocking, reflecting her own spiritual journey, was released in November 2015 and is available through Book Patch and Amazon.

Yogarupa Rod Stryker has called Molly “a most rare and precious gem in today’s world–piercingly insightful, humble, erudite, generous, unfailingly honest, authentic, loving and, above all else a tireless seeker–for the highest Truth.” 

Joseph LePage has applauded Molly as “an individual who has always shown an intensive drive to discern fact from fiction and to find her own path within the ever-growing maze of spiritual disciplines. At the same time, she has tremendous heart and has supported large numbers of students on the journey toward healing through Yoga.”

Street Yoga Founder Mark Lilly says of Molly,“Whether it’s the Divine in each of us, the Truth that can be found in sacred texts, or the simple Power of helping a dear friend with chronic illness die with great peace and serenity, Molly gives us street level access into a life spent in search of the edges and seams of her own soul, the place, she found, where souls meet Love.”

Ram Dass says of Molly, “Molly, the way you teach yoga is the real thing. It warms my heart.”

Pack and go

 

This retreat will take place in Molly’s home town of Lo de Marcos, Nayarit, Mexico about one hour north of Puerto Vallarta. Lo de Marcos is a very quiet rural fishing village with very little tourist infrastructure – allowing the retreat participants to connect deeply with the local community as well as to have plenty of time reading and relaxing on the beach.

Molly has recently opened a small cafe, Cafe Sita, a “spiritual speakeasy” where we will hold all of our classes, but where retreatants can also enjoy fresh, light vegetarian food, delicious coffee and fresh juices, and participate in English or Spanish classes.

Students will be housed in a lovely hotel with its own swimming pool. Each room has two double beds, a porch, sitting room and kitchen with all necessary items to cook food at home as desired. This retreat is a time for lots of learning, and lots of relaxing.
