Who knows pushing boundaries better than Black Girls RUN! co-founders Toni Carey & Ashley Hicks-Rocha? They transformed the running industry and the state of black women’s health, now they’re sharing what they’ve learned to help all women take back their health and their lives in a candid (and comical) bi-weekly podcast called Pick Up the Pace. This engaging, relatable (and sometimes unpredictable) podcast will help women from all walks transform their lives from the inside out featuring weekly guests that will have everyone picking up the pace….or maybe even slowing it down.
The two chat with Shionta Pumphrey, yoga instructor and founder of Shades of Health.
Shionta Pumphrey, founder of Shades of Health, is a Hematology-Oncology nurse and certified yoga teacher from Southern Maryland with a desire to inspire. She received her Bachelors of Science degree from Hampton University in 2008 and started her career at the world renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. Attempting to find balance with work and her personal life, Shionta made a transition to Orlando, FL where she was introduced to yoga. It was here she found a love and deep connection with Vinyasa Yoga sequences. Her daily practice kept her grounded mentally, physically and spiritually.
