Meet Your Teachers

Molly & Amanda nataraj

Meet Molly Masaoka & Amanda Webster, both ERYT-500 & YACEP

About Molly:

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to study with some of the world’s most influential instructors including my primary teachers Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty. I’ve also completed teacher trainings with Don Stapelton from Nosara Yoga Institute, and Annie Carpenter of Smart Flow Yoga. I credit Annie for giving me the skills to teach intentional alignment and sequencing, Don for the ability to encourage self-inquiry and Chuck for helping me to find the unity in all things.

Ultimately, Molly believes that the yoga mat is a microcosm for who you are. It’s not about how good you are at handstands or how flexible you are, it’s about how you approach life. Yoga reveals this and so much more. It’s about discovering who you are—in spite of the pose—and finding acceptance right then and there in that very moment. I hope to meet you there soon.  Read more about Molly here.


About Amanda:

Amanda loves watching students light up from the practice of yoga! Her mission as a teacher is to help others recognize that mindfulness can take many forms and may be cultivated in a myriad of ways, such as yoga, martial arts, meditation, self-care, or by simply (simply…ha!) being present in everything that you do! She teaches heart-centered classes that range from upbeat to serious, humble to powerful, and everything in-between. Her specialty is breaking down asana and vinyasa into manageable steps to suit each individual, and encouraging you to OWN your practice as it needs to exist in each breath without comparing yourself to the person next to you, trying to live up to your previous practice, or shutting down when something challenges you. Amanda is also a Certified Ayurveda Counselor, through the American Institute of Vedic Studies, and often incorporates the ancient holistic practices of Ayurveda into her teaching. She believes that the genuine practice of yoga intensifies when you leave your mat and looks forward to helping you establish this awareness, too, for a healthier lifestyle and more content outlook on life!
