It combines the most anatomically-sound yoga instruction with mindfulness practices and deeper self-learning, making it a whole-you practice. If you are missing time for self-care, want to feel better in body, or want more mindfulness in your life, it may be perfect for you. We begin with a FREE trial week on May 19th!"
SouleMama: Tell us about your background. What path led you to the work you do today?
Hunter: I help mamas bring more peace and joy to life using the traditions of yoga & mindfulness, which have been completely transformational in my own life. When I was younger, living with anxiety and a roller coaster of emotions lead me to yoga and meditation in my teens, which have helped me much more peaceful and grounded. Now, I have over 18 years of experience in yoga practice and I've been a meditator and mindfulness practitioner for over a decade. In my mindfulness tradition I have the dharma name, "Calm breath of the heart."
SouleMama: Tell us about the beginnings of your business.
Hunter: I am also a painter and while I'd been having recognition and shows, there was little hope of it becoming a sustaining income for my family. I realized that I really thrive teaching yoga and sharing mindfulness practices with my students and that I could reach more people through online offerings. So I started sharing with a blog and then started a podcast (Yoga Stories Project) - both aimed at inspired others to embrace mindful, conscious living and becoming the change we want to see. I want my business to be able to spread yoga and mindfulness practices while allowing me to earn a living doing what I love.
My parenting journey also had a lot to do with it. In my sustained efforts to be a more conscious parent, I realized that the tools of mindfulness and self-care are essential for this path. We can know how we want to be with our children, but if we don't have the space to respond, or old habit-reactions just pop up. How we live our lives - modelling - is the best teaching for our children.
SouleMama: What inspires you?
Hunter: I get truly inspired by seeing my clients finding more peace in their lives - and when they start to "get it" that this whole mindfulness thing is really a life-long, daily practice. I love seeing them feeling amazing after a wonderful yoga flow and starting to incorporate the anatomical principles of Core-Strength into their practice. I get super-inspired by their questions, as well as talking about our struggles and wins living and parenting mindfully. I want my business to truly serve women and to help spread the peace of mindful living to the next generation - through the modeling of their mindful mamas.
