Minty Atherton is a Hoop Revolution and Hoop Vinyasa™ certified teacher and recently completed her 200-hour RYT with Tara Glazier at Abhaya Yoga. With a background in long-distance running and triathlons, Minty’s formerly linear active lifestyle took a circular turn when she discovered HoopDance at Kripalu Yoga Center in 2011 and has been hooked ever since. With each spin of the hoop, Minty unlocked a freedom and joy that was transformational and connected her more clearly to her purpose. Her desire is to spread joy and self love to those seeking balance in their physical, mental and spiritual lives through playful movement of HoopDance, Yoga and the fusion of the two: HoopVinyasa™.
Minty has performed with groups both large and small, and enjoys the vibrant and inclusive hoop dance community in New York City. Most recently, Minty directed, choreographed and performed in a Hoop Vinyasa™ showcase in Bryant Park to commemorate their 12th season of outdoor yoga.
