Dr. Stacy D. Hunter
I'm Stacy Hunter and I'm from Charleston, South Carolina, but living in central Texas where I'm an Assistant Professor at a local university. I'm a scientist with a professional background in lifestyle interventions, clinical trials, freelance writing, and personal training. I have a doctorate degree in Exercise Physiology and I study how the body responds during exercise and as a result of regular exercise training over time. The main focus of my research is cardiovascular disease risk prevention and my studies have focused on yoga and blood vessel health over the last 12 years. I've published numerous studies on the beneficial effects of yoga on heart health and presented at research conferences and to yoga practitioners at studios and yoga retreats in the U.S. and abroad. My work has been featured in Forbes, Time, Reuters, Black Health Matters, Refinery29, U.S. News & World Report, and many other media outlets. I'm passionate about taking technical information and making it easy to understand and palatable for people from various backgrounds, especially those with no background in the sciences. Yoga and All Things Fitness will provide science-based information that will assist you in reaching your health and fitness goals. Yoga and All Things Fitness will at times debunk myths about health and fitness but everything shared here will be backed by scientific data. My hope is that the information presented on this site will meet the needs of all women no matter what your goals are, especially black women who are often left out of the discussion around health and fitness.
