In 1984, following her graduation from University of Virginia, Hilary Iker packed her suitcase 🧳 of dreams and moved to New York City where she landed her first professional job at Vogue Magazine. Iker recalls catching glimpses in the elevators at Vogue headquarters of Anna Wintour, longtime Vogue Editor-in-Chief and fashion icon. The details of Iker’s young professional beginnings in NYC were as if plucked straight from the pages of The Devil Wears Prada. Iker met her husband, an award-winning sports journalist, in NYC 🌃 and followed him to Los Angeles, California in the late 80s. The writers made their home in an area of Los Angeles that attracted young artists, musicians and writers of the time. Her neighbors were budding music legends— Mike D of the Beastie Boys and Beck. Following her pilgrimage to LA, she became interested in learning Ashtanga Yoga where she started her life-changing yoga practices in the very same studio where Madonna studied yoga. For the past 20 years she has practiced Ashtanga Yoga daily, and due to her experience and knowledge she has written health and fitness articles for magazines such as Fit Yoga, Self, Fit, Prevention, and Glamour.
