Molly Ford Yoga

San Francisco, CA

I am a Yoga Alliance-registered yoga teacher specializing in the Vinyasa and restorative styles. I am also certified in pre- and postnatal yoga, appropriate for mothers in every stage of their pregnancies and their postnatal period. All of my classes are infused with encouragement to build strength and flexibility, but maybe more importantly, to focus on conscious breath, to be present, to calm the mind, to set intentions, and to carry the benefits of yoga with you form your mat into your everyday life.  


About Me

I am a 200-hour Yoga Alliance-certified (RYT-200) yoga teacher trained in the Vinyasa and Restorative styles. My training was with Awakened Life School of Yoga in Bali, Indonesia, a tremendously inspiring and transformational experience. In addition, I have an advanced certification in pre- and postnatal yoga (RPYT) that I received through Yoga Garden of San Francisco. 
I started practicing yoga in 2005 as a way to get in shape and de-stress, but over the years the mental clarity that the science of yoga has brought me has become the foundation of my life. The positive changes I've seen in myself over the years has now inspired me to share this practice with my community. 
Prior to my teacher training I spent nine years working in PR and online marketing for various San Francisco companies. When I'm not practicing, you can find me raising my 1-year-old, Sylvie, with my husband, John, reading, cooking, and traveling as much as parenthood will allow. I received my BS in Journalism with a second major in history from Northwestern University. 
What is Vinyasa Yoga? 
"Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term often employed to describe a broad range of yoga styles. Vinyasa can be decoded from its root words Nyasa denoting "to place" and vi denoting "in a special way." It symbolizes a flowing, dynamic form of yoga, where postures are linked together using breath."
