About Kathleen Hunt: Kathleen Hunt has had a lifelong passion for dance and movement. After graduating with a BA in Dance from the University of Washington, she went on to receive numerous grants and commissions to produce/ choreograph/perform and collaborate on dance and performance art productions with various multimedia artists.
Kathleen owes her understanding of yoga to world renowned teachers: Swami Shankarananda, Dharma Mitra, Marie Svoboda, Sri Tripura Sundari, Sri K Patabhi Jois and Aadil Palkhivala to name a few. Hunt created ‘Samadhi Yoga’ while teaching at Physical Culture Dance Center from 1987-1998. In 1995 she formed the ‘Samadhi Yoginis’ dance troupe which performed at yoga conferences, schools, senior centers and nightclubs. She founded/co-directed the Samadhi Yoga Center on Capitol Hill with Steven Davis from 1999-2014 and created the Yoga Alliance certified Samadhi Yoga Teacher Training program in 1998, training over 200 teachers. She currently teaches at YoBe – Yoga on Beacon, Velocity Dance Center as well as working with private clients and guest teaching.
About Sheev Ray: Sheev Ray gives a special thanks to his guru, Kathleen Hunt, who opened his heart and inspired him to take the path of yoga in 1992. He shares, “within the first week of instruction I realized this was what I was supposed to do without knowing much about it. From a bitter and broken past the practice slowly healed my anger and pain vastly improving every aspect of my new life. I came to realize that everything I perceived was a reflection of my inner state, and so the most important thing I could do in this lifetime was to understand myself. All my relationships have been vastly improved (family, friends, and coworkers) as a result of the practice which often starts on the physical level and works its way deep into the subtle layers of emotion, mind, and spirit. I began teaching in 1996 and three years later co-founded Samadhi Yoga Center on Capitol Hill in Seattle.” Sheev Ray Yoga combines the inspirations of my many wonderful teachers including Bhagavan Das, Krishna Das, David Life, Sharon Gannon, Dharma Mittra, Ravi Singh, Rod Stryker, Aadil Palkhivala, and Adyashanti.
