In This Episode
In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb talks to Faith Hunter, a globally recognized thought leader, yoga and meditation teacher, author, and SheEO. Faith has spent her life working on big causes that have affected her and those she loved dearly, both as a nonprofit worker and yoga instructor. Faith talks about the trauma caused by the death of her brother due to complications related to HIV-AIDS, and how she was able to process it through therapy, meditation, and yoga. She also talks about her experience as an entrepreneur when she founded two yoga studios in DC. Now she’s passionate about ELEVATE, a digital and in-person experience that focuses on inner connection and personal growth. Earlier this year, Faith released her book Spiritually Fly: Wisdom, Meditations, and Yoga to Elevate Your Soul, a real-world guide to feeling more worthy, vibrant, and alive.
