Faith Hunter is a New York City-based yoga teacher, global traveler, and life-stylist with a dash of Louisiana charm. Faith 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 of Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Kundalini Yoga. 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 also owns Embrace Yoga DC, a yoga training and community center located in Adams Morgan, a multicultural nest in Washington, DC. Both 200- and 500-level yoga certifications are offered.
A favorite choice for mass yoga gatherings, Faith has taught yoga on the Great Lawn, for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, and for The White House Easter Egg Roll and is an esteemed faculty member for Kripalu. She tours internationally teaching yoga workshops, offering teacher trainings, and making public appearances. Faith has been on the covers of Yoga Journal, Om Yoga & Lifestyle, Origin Magazine, and Sweat Equity. She has also appeared in Essence, Black Enterprise, Washington Post, Women’s Health, and several other publications and numerous blogs. Faith is currently a Brand Ambassador for Nubian Heritage, Lole Women, and Bali Malas.
