Hi guys! I’m Molly Hogan. I am the owner of Manipura Yoga by Molly, and now The Fitting Room as of July 2022! We are located in the beloved, historical, Uptown in Richland, WA.
I am a wife, mother, 200 hr Certified Yoga Instructor and Certified Medical Assistant. Meaning, I went through school and training to gain the baseline knowledge to safely lead you through classes, today! I found yoga when I was hurting, feeling totally broken, and lost, and practicing helped bring me back to my true self. Through yoga, I began to rebuild my confidence and reshape who I really wanted to be in this life.
I am originally certified in three foundational, traditional, styles of yoga- Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin. I fell in love with a happy mixture of those and call it Deep Stretch. As my love for yoga continued to blossom, I branched out and am now certified in Buti Yoga, Y12SR, Reiki I, and am a Functional Strength Coach. I enjoy taking workshops and courses to further my education and believe that the pursuit of knowledge is endless!
I have been teaching since 2015 and have had the opportunity to spend several months assisting other teacher trainees to become Yoga Instructors themselves in Carlsbad, CA. I also had the immense pleasure of co-leading an international yoga retreat in beautiful Bali, Indonesia in 2019. I’ve taught several wine and yoga events, Goat Yoga, Blacklight Glow yoga, other themed classes, workshops, and so much more.
You may have seen my face around some of the yoga studios/gyms in the Tri-Cities as my journey has shifted and evolved throughout the years. Maybe you’ve taken one (or several) of my classes, and for this, I want to thank each and every one of you for trusting me to guide your practice. Teaching is a passion of mine and I truly believe it is a purpose in my life and it really has been an honor.
My intention for this studio is a community-minded space where people of all abilities, ages, gender, shapes, and sizes can feel completely free to express themselves, share their craft, and inspire others. Where people feel that they are important, that they belong, and that they matter. A place where everyone can come as they are, allow themselves a moment of self-care, come to a safe place to move freely, blow off steam, celebrate, teach, connect, and so much more- honestly with a place like this, the opportunities are endless. I truly look forward to supporting and serving our wonderfully diverse community.
Please be on the lookout for events and classes at The Fitting Room, and around the community. We would love to see new faces and familiar faces, alike! If you have an event, meeting, workshop, class, or camp in mind and need an affordable, welcoming space- please send me a studio request! I look forward to holding space for you at The Fitting Room.
The light in me honors the light in you.
