'Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes'. Carole interviews Chris Molloy
A quote from Nicolette Sowder describes Chris Molloy to me 'Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes', Chris describes herself as having been a wild child, she became a mother while she was still at school. Having a child so young presented many challenges that Chris overcame, she went to college and started work in the financial sector and then in recruitment and she got married and had more children. Chris loved going to yoga classes and a few years ago she trained as a yoga teacher and she now has a very successful teaching practice using her skills and time in the business sector to help her with her teaching practice. Chris teaches online and when there are no covid restrictions she loves to teach outdoors in parks, in studios, in companies and in colleges. She also is involved in a new program with the national maternity hospital for young teenage mothers. You can find Chris on line at chrismolloyyoga.com, insta @chrismolloyyoga and facebook chrismolloyyoga and linkedin Christine Molloy
