Featured Keynote Teacher: Faith Hunter

Faith Hunter began her practice of yoga and meditation in the early 90s to manage a traumatic life experience. Through the mindfulness and personal reflection gained from the practices, Faith was able to release her fears and experience an awakening from within. Over the past 20-plus years, Faith has studied yoga, mediation, breathwork, reiki, and many wellness approaches. She’s graced the covers of Yoga Journal (twice), Om Yoga & Lifestyle, Origin Magazine, and Sweat Equity. She has also appeared on Wendy Williams, The Real Housewives of Potomac, and in Essence, Black Enterprise, Women’s Health, Shape, New York & YOGA magazines. Faith is an exclusive yoga & wellness expert for BeachBody, iFIT Nordic Track, Fitbit, and Meditation Studio App and has proudly represented endemic brands such as Athleta, Footlocker, and lululemon as well as non-endemic brands such as Warner’s and Weleda. In addition, Faith is an author who penned two books, Shades of the Soul (poetry and daily inspirations), and her latest, Spiritually Fly: Wisdom, Meditations, and Yoga for the Soul.

    Yoga is an ancient practice designed to support us in meeting whatever might arise, moment to moment. In this session, we will explore how we can engage in spiritual practice to meet the uncertainty life presents and the challenging times we are experiencing because of social unrest, climate change, collective loss, and the unsettling times in which we find ourselves now. This session will also explore how we might engage in spiritual practice to invite more ease into our lives and cultivate a sense of collective ease and peace. The session will include pranayama, discussion, journaling, and a little movement.
