Adrian Molina: Founder, Warrior Flow School of Yoga

My NativeAdVantage:


Adrian Molina, founder of Warrior Flow School of Yoga. Adrian is renowned for the sophistication and depth of his teaching style and the degree of mindfulness, compassion and precision he brings to asana practice. He is also a writer, massage therapist, Reiki healer, and a Kriya Yoga meditation practitioner in the lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda. He teaches for Equinox in Miami and NYC. With his husband Dennis Hunter he leads workshops, international retreats, and teacher trainings.

What do you do best?

Keeping my self in check. The industry I work for is very competitive and very body image-oriented. You can easily get lost in trying to become someone, or promote something, or sponsor this or that. I am trying to stay close to the roots of what I teach, which is yoga. To offer something simple, effective, real, and sincere. I want my students to vibrate at a higher frequency — not only to perform amazing postures but to experience something that makes them feel alive and curious to learn more about yoga and the benefits of this practice in their lives.

What makes you the best?

I worked my ass off to be where I am. To be able to be a full time yoga instructor who teaches in Miami and New York. To run a couple of yoga teacher trainings a year along with a few retreats. I work hard for every bit of success I have. I will never stop. I am thankful for the amazing opportunities that I had and continue to have.

What are your aspirations?

Personally I want to find more balance between work and life. It's always a struggle. I want to take more vacations with my husband and go back to Italy.

Professionally, I want to continue learning about the benefits of yoga for depression, cancer, trauma, and more. I work with an amazing non-profit Kula for Karma and I am excited to teach my first training in yoga for trauma and addiction next year.

Biggest Success?

Moving to the U.S. from Argentina with nothing. And now being able to look back and know that it was all worth it. I am married to the love of my life. I live in a beautiful city. I am reminded every morning how grateful I am.

Most Challenging Moment?

Being diagnosed with depression. Struggling with something that I knew others had to deal with, but I never thought it would affect me. Having to reach out for professional help.


Get shit DONE!

Favorite People/Role Models?

Professionally I don't have any role models. I built myself piece by piece.

Personally, Paramahansa Yogananda. The writer of Autobiography of a Yogi. I don't know where I would be if it weren't for his teachings.

Favorite Places/Destinations?

Tuscany and Sicily. You can't never get enough. There is something magical when you combine pasta, gelato, and sailing. 

Favorite Products/Objects?

I am obsessed with facial masks made with the Ayurvedic plant neem. Actually, I am obsessed with every product that contains neem. If you’ve never heard about it, Google it…it’s quite amazing.

Current Passions?

Continue learning about the therapeutic effects of yoga. Reaching out to the community and becoming an agent of change. Making yoga accessible to underprivileged communities.
