Owner and founder of Namaste in Nature, a brilliant Asheville based company that creates unique experiences that combine yoga, meditation, and hiking into one guided trip. Lauded by Forbes, Citizen Times, Mountain Xpress, and Romantic Asheville, as “the thing to do when you come to Asheville”. This ‘hippie job’ that Miranda created for herself is quickly becoming a household name in North Carolina and beyond. And that has everything to do with Miranda Peterson. She is a powerful manifestor and a savvy slash conscientious business owner. She’s passionate about creating mindfulness and yoga experiences for hikers of all levels. What better way to experience yoga for the first time than at the top of a beautiful mountain peak among some of the oldest mountains in the world, second only to South Africa's Barberton greenstone belt? And Miranda and her team take care of all the planning and details so all you have to do is show up, be present, and absorb all the healing benefits of being immersed in nature.

Before moving to Asheville and starting Namaste in Nature, Miranda was an art director at Whole Foods Market and an international advertising agency before that. She is currently an independent creative consultant, specializing in the natural & organic food industry, responsible travel/tourism and wellness/yoga. 

She loves cooking healthy, plant-based meals, international travel, volunteering and learning how to live a more mindful and sustainable lifestyle, which she documents on youtube,  instagram, and her popular Blog. You won’t want to miss a moment of this episode and be on the look out for this human because she is going places!

We discuss:

  1. Exploring the Self after burnout.

  2. Miranda’s Travels to India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Nepal, and beyond.

  3. Exploring the boundaries of one’s comfort zone and refining one’s intuition.

  4. Making Yoga accessible to everyone while benefiting from being in nature.

  5. The highs and lows of being a creative entrepreneur while following your curiosity.
