Faith Hunter

Hunter Images by Brandon ScottFaith began her life-long love affair with yoga in the early 90s as a way to cope as her beloved brother Michael was dying from a complication related to AIDS. Through meditation and mindfulness, Faith was able to release her fears and experience an awakening from within. From that day forward, she committed herself to sharing these practices with the world. Always eager to learn, explore, and share, Faith is an inspiring and generous mentor to yoga practitioners of all skill levels. 

She is the creator of Spiritually Fly™, a philosophy that celebrates every moment of life, and uses yoga’s tools of sound (both chanting and music), breath, and movement in a fresh and modern way to encourage students to embrace their unique flow in life — on and off the mat. Her passionate and free-spirited teaching style is influenced by her study in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Kundalini. A next-generation yoga teacher, Faith blends Classic yogic principles and real world personal experiences into an Integrated Flow that is totally grounded and Spiritually Fly. Faith owns Embrace Yoga DC, a training and yoga studio located in Adams Morgan, a multicultural nest of Washington DC, where she offers both 200- and 500-level yoga certifications.

A favorite choice for mass yoga gatherings, Faith has taught yoga on the Great Lawn, at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, and for the White House Easter Egg Roll. She is an esteemed faculty member for Yoga Nation on Tour as well as at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She tours internationally teaching yoga workshops and teacher trainings and making public appearances. Faith has been on the cover of Yoga Journal, Om Yoga & Lifestyle (UK based), Origin Magazine, and Sweat Equity. She has also appeared in Essence, Black Enterprise, Washington Post, several DC publications, and numerous blogs.
