28: Meditation through movement, anxiety as a teacher, using fitness to be present in your body, and thoughtful entrepreneurship with Kait Hurley

 
Portrait by  GREY + ELLE .
 

I never really got into at home workouts until I discovered Kait Hurley. Her approach to movement and meditation, aligning the physical and mental body, really spoke to me more than any other online fitness community ever had. Plus, Kait is so real and down to earth, which is evident in this conversation. We chat about how and why she started her business, how she learned to manage her anxiety, the role meditation plays in her life, how to build a healthy relationship with movement, entrepreneurship, white privilege and racism, and more.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Kait’s background in movement

  • How meditation plays a role in her life and anxiety

  • How meditation changed her perception of fitness and movement

  • Kait’s business and how she integrates meditation and movement

  • Why goal setting isn’t always the healthiest

  • Fear of fitness and how to overcome it

  • Kait’s experience with entrepreneurship

  • How Kait intentionally addresses white privilege and racism in her business and personal life

  • How Kait avoids distraction in the wellness industry

  • Getting started with meditation

  • What Kait has learned from coaching a middle school basketball team
