Molly has been practicing yoga for eight years and received her 200 hour teaching certificate through Pink Lotus Yoga in July 2014. It was the benefits of the physical practice that originally brought her to the mat but the recognition of yoga as a total healing practice that kept her coming back. Molly firmly believes that there is a style of yoga for everyone and that through a consistent practice, change happens. She is passionate about the origins and principles of yoga and incorporates meditation, mantra practice, and ancient Hindu mythology, among other disciplines, into her practice.
Nicole McL first came to yoga in search of way to ease stress and anxiety. As her practice advanced, not only did she gain more of a sense of calm, but also noticed that yoga’s physical and spiritual benefits were transforming many areas of her life, both personal and professional. That’s what inspired her to teach. She completed her 200-hour certification with Pink Lotus Yoga in Lakewood and continues to seek ways to learn and grow, both as a teacher and practitioner. Nicole believes that yoga is for everybody and that everybody’s yoga journey is personal. She seeks to offer a safe and fun environment for others to develop their own practice and discover yoga’s life-changing benefits for themselves. Away from the mat, she’s an actor, singer, French cooking enthusiast, die-hard KISS fan, and dreamer.
Nicole R curiously took her first yoga classes 15 years ago as college credit. Nicole is a 2015 graduate of Pink Lotus Yoga’s teacher training program. She credits Marcia Camino for giving her a solid foundation to build her teachings on and for invoking in her an interest of yoga history and philosophy. Nicole loves incorporating movement on the mat with breathwork, meditation and Indian and Chinese energy anatomy. She believes the best way she can serve her students is by maintaining the curiosity that brought her to yoga to begin with, always learning and always a student herself.
Danielle Derouin Kim
Danielle has been practicing yoga for about 8 years. As many do, she went to her first yoga class for the physicality aspect, but quickly began to realize the transformation yoga created in both her mind and body. It has brought awareness and healing to many parts of her life.
In October of 2015 she went to Cahuita, Costa Rica for one month to train with Frog Lotus Yoga led by Jennifer Yarro. There, she received her 200-hour certification to teach Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga. Since her training in 2015 she has gone on to study with Jason Crandell and Alexandria Crow. Two things in life that are important to Danielle are yoga and volunteering. Recently, she found a way to combine the two by beginning her own company called Yogatta Give Back. Every event begins with one hour of vinyasa yoga followed by either a donation drive or community service of some sort. She is excited to introduce this concept to the students at Firehouse Yoga.
