Anna Molitor is a certified Mogadao Qigong Instructor and Internal Alchemy Guide who teaches at the Mogadao Institute and in private practice in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is currently also training with Damo Mitchell and the other teachers of Lotus Nei Gong in their three-year Qigong Certification program. Anna brings her long-time love of the creative and catalyzing power of language to her work with movement and the body, and students often comment that practicing with her is “like moving inside a poem.” Anna’s teaching is informed by her study of ritual, poetry, mystical practice, human development, and the soul’s ordinary and magnificent journey of incarnating itself in the very substance of the body. Anna spent her childhood years living on the rocky coast of Maine, exploring the forests, lakes and fields with her twin sister and receiving the essential wildness of that land as one of the most important influences that grew her toward adulthood. She carries that early intimacy with the natural world into her understanding of the ancient place of qigong as a practice of learning to embody and communicate deeply with elemental life.
