On the show this week, Yuliana is joined by Carly Hunter to share her inspiring phoenix tale. Carly is a passionate yoga practitioner specifically in Ashtanga Yoga and a private yoga instructor in New York City. Today she shares her story of how she left her career in advertising and found yoga, which to her surprise came with power dynamics she had seen in her previous career. She also relates how she summoned up the courage to leave that particular yoga studio and build a practice of her own.

Carly begins by describing the event that changed the course of her life which was leaving her career in advertising in pursuit of happiness and finding yoga. She discusses the various challenges that came with her teaching yoga in a space where she felt unwelcome and why she finally had to leave that community, as well as how she met her ex-boyfriend in that community and the challenges that caused the relationship to come to an end. She tells about forging a new path and becoming a new person after her experience, and the episode comes to a close with Carly speaking about the one song that describes her life – ‘Let it Be’ by The Beatles because as she says, ‘Even when times are challenging, there are better days ahead.’

“I really found a home, outside of my home in that community, it became the center point of my life, and it made me feel like I belong somewhere.”

“I think yoga teachers inherently, ironically, have a lot of narcissistic tendencies.”

“Once I got into the managerial side of things, I could see everybody and everything for what it was, and that shiny object syndrome kind of went away.”

“If I could get through this, I can really get through anything.”

“I found that it is best when things are challenging to sort of let it be and know that better days are ahead.”
