MEET THE INSTRUCTORS
Molly Elizabeth Rice I discovered yoga in my twenties at a donation based studio in NYC attracted initially by affordable exercise and profoundly impacted by the deep healing I found. With a background in the performing arts, I have always loved movement, music, and the mind body connection. On my mat for the first time I found a form of self expression that was entirely my own to explore. A space for self inquiry, self acceptance, and tools to transcend my self limiting patterns. I did my first 300 hours of teacher training in 2011 in NYC and have been studying, practicing, and teaching ever since! I’ve studied yoga in Nicaragua, Thai Massage in Thailand, and Ayurveda in India. I am personally passionate about the therapeutic applications of yoga in supporting anxiety, depression, and addiction, all of which I have personal experience with. I believe with the right combination of curiosity, compassion, and discipline, we can find more presence and purpose both on and off our mats..
Amanda Gloria Valdes I arrive in space with the mission to utilize the practice of Yoga, Meditation, and the Arts as a catalyst for social change and social equity. Community building has been a passion for me for as long as I can remember. I strive to support my community as a Yoga and Meditation guide, teacher training program manager/curator, and mentor. I take pride in creating non-traditional spaces to practice yoga, meditation, and arts enrichment by building programs centering BIPOC, LGTBQ+, and birthing folx. In 2012 I was certified as a Vinyasa Yoga teacher and began teaching in New York City. In the following years I became a 500+ hr E- RYT and YACEP member. My offerings are informed by History & Philosophy, Bhakti Yoga (studied in Rishikesh, India), Energy, Subtle Body, Ayurveda, Inversions, Meditation, Katonah Yoga and more. I am passionate about supporting birthing folx as a full spectrum doula via Sumi’s Touch, Prenatal/ Postnatal Yoga, Womb Wellness Education, and training. My Yoga and Meditation offerings and training span from Y7 Studio, New York University Global Spiritual Department, zoom, and maybe your local park!
Casey Layne Anderson From Los Angeles to New York City, I have 10+ years experience teaching yoga, guiding meditation, offering Reiki healing, and promoting empowered, personalized wellness. With a BFA in theatre from Carnegie Mellon University, I bring dynamic insights to the power of human connection. I love to utilize my talents to create artistic and inspiring experiences, combining energy and fluidity both physically and philosophically. In addition to hosting workshops and retreats, I feel most in my purpose while working with newly certified teachers as well as business professionals seeking to improve their public speaking skills and confidence. I have worked in continuing education and as a mentor with Y7 for the past five years and continue to create modules and content to take yoga off the mat. Additionally, I have extensive experience with hiring, recruiting, and providing feedback to yoga teachers of all levels. I invite you to enter the experience of teacher training with openness to the abundance of possibilities that exist for you, even those you have not yet considered. This is the beginning of a great adventure!
Darby Rae McCullough I am a yoga teacher and avid lover of all things that cultivate a deeper understanding and appreciation of the human experience. I hold a 500 E-RYT with the Yoga Alliance and have been teaching Vinyasa, Hatha, and Trauma Informed Yoga for 5+ years. I have extensive training in trauma informed yoga, and yoga as a tool to engage in social justice. I believe that this practice has unlimited potential to create pivotal change within the individual and their community. Whether my students are simply interested in deepening their practice or becoming teachers themselves, it is my intention that I equip them with information and inspiration to prepare them to make their unique mark on the world.
Jo Murdock I am a New York Native and lover of all things that elevate the mind, body and spirit! Yoga found me in 2017 and that’s the year I started living intentionally, breathing with a purpose, and manifesting the life I envisioned in my mind. Before Yoga I studied dance my entire life and cultivated a deep love for movement. I am classically trained and have received my certification of completion from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Once yoga became my life, I took my existing love of movement and explored the ways in which it could heal, teach, empower, and help. So, here I am today, doing my best to pay it forward. My mission as a yoga teacher is to bring yoga to communities that have historically been withheld from it and underrepresented within it.
Dorian Shorts (E-RYT 500 YACEP) has been serving communities in the NYC area since 2015. His love of vinyasa and restorative styles stems from a lifelong pursuit of mental and physical balance and his goal as a teacher has been to expand the limits of possibility within his students, creating a deeper awareness of agency over one’s personal health. Trained in Lotus Flow vinyasa, Dorian has been a private teacher as well as an instructor at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center, LL Studio, Harlem Yoga Studio, Chelsea Piers Fitness, Equinox and the Ali Forney Center. “In order to create and sustain balance, a physical practice must be a combination of exertion and rest, and that looks different for everyone!” Dorian is thrilled to team up with Y7 in order to share his practice.
