Faith Hunter on cover of Yoga Journal.

Just got my latest issue of YJ, yesterday, Sunday, and paged through it along with the far less-easy-to-read-in-the-tub Sunday Times. More photos of the mag cover at bottom.

From her site,

Faith is a Washington, DC based yoga instructor who has a passion for beauty, movement, love, and soul freedom. In her quest to share her passions and eclectic yoga teaching style, Faith incorporates her Louisiana upbringing, yoga philosophy, modern mystical sounds, and the purity of breath. As a nurturing instructor, Faith infuses the principles of shraddha (faith), ishvarapranidhana (surrendering to the Divine), nada (sound), and ashima (endless/without boundaries) into each class. She has been called “Spiritually Fly” as she invokes the Divine in her teachings, and each day she encourages her classes to embrace life with passion!  Faith is also the co-owner of  SHAKTI MindBody Studio located in Washington, DC, the Director of the Shakti Yoga Teacher Training Program, freelance writer, and a  yoga podcaster.

We don’t know Faith, but we hear great things from her friend and our columnist, KB.

Check out the latest issue of YJ, on newsstands now.

    nice! she looks very inspiring. and it's just good to see a woman of colour on the cover of YJ… it really doesn't happen often enough. but it looks like YJ is making efforts to diversify… last month featured "elder" trudie styler on the cover.

  2. Amen. Too bad they can't really feature gents anymore, not a biggie really, but I guess you put a man on the cover and magazine sales dip! So it's to their credit they continue to think out of the pastel young white woman box.
