Hunter H

From Honolulu, Hawaii, Hunter grew up playing competitive athletics. He received a partial scholarship to play division 1 volleyball at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and continued to play competitively afterwards. What Hunter loved about competitive athletics was that it gave him the ability to escape the 'mind stuff' he tended to put himself through on the day to day. Hunter describes this feeling as "athletic samadhi" where nothing existed outside of being in that moment, in that time, in between the lines of the court. Eventually losing interest in the competitive side of athletics, Hunter yearned to find a practice that was both meditative and athletic that would allow him to reach that mind space once more. He found that mind space after taking a 26-2 hot yoga class taught by Fracesca Asuma at Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills. Not only was he physically and mentally challenged by the practice, he was jolted spiritually as well. From that point on, Hunter's yoga journey began. With 200 hours of teacher training certification through Hot 8 Yoga in both 26-2 (Francesca Asuma) and Hot Power Fusion (Deanna Ainsworth), Hunter is passionate about sharing Yoga with anyone who wants to practice with him. Come on in to Hot 8 Yoga, bring your mat, sweat a lot, and let Hunter help you find your moment of 'samadhi!'
