Embrace with Faith Hunter Yoga
Faith Hunter's yogic philosophy hinges almost entirely upon treating the practice as a means to an end. Her studio's Vinayasa- and Ashtanga-inspired classes do build core strength and improve flexibility over time, but these sessions also encourage students to recognize and harness the positive energies that yoga coaxes to the forefront of the mind. From there, Faith urges attendees to use the renewed understanding of these energies to live a fuller, more impassioned life.
This lifestyle philosophy—called "embrace your flow"—and emphasis on yogic practice has garnered national and international prominence for Faith. She has even appeared on the covers of publications such as Yoga Journal and Om Yoga & Lifestyle, and she has hosted her own yoga podcast, All the Way Live.
Her DC studio's classes aim to accommodate virtually all skill and fitness levels. Beginners sessions can introduce students to fundamental asana sequences and breathing techniques, and more advanced classes start to incorporate more challenging poses, including inversions, arm balances, and slow-motion break dancing.
