Hollis Church
Hollis is known for many things, but we at the Glowing Body know her as our founder.
In 2008, Hollis opened the Glowing Body Yoga Studio and Glowing Bowl Cafe off of Central Street. Hollis' love of food has been longstanding and she has been a leading force in Knoxville for promoting healthy, unique cuisine for sometime. In 1994, she founded Dega Catering, a company focused on catering-on-the-road. Under her leadership, Dega has become the catering company of choice for some of the biggest touring musical acts in the nation.
In addition to her love of food, Hollis has devoted herself to yoga. She has been practicing for 10 years, and she started her yoga teaching journey in 2004 when she studied with Cindy Dollar in Asheville.
In 2011, Hollis sold the studio, and moved to Kauai Island to continue her love of food and merge it with her yoga path. She is now studying with the California College of Ayurveda and works and studies with students and teachers of Ayurvedic healing methods on the Garden Island. She also gets to continue to practice yoga with her mentor, Patricia Howard of Mauli'ola Studio in Kapa'a as well as teach there and at other studios periodically on the island. Patricia's son, Saul David Raye, is also one of her inspirations (Hollis is a graduate of his Atma Soul Yoga Immersion Training) and Saul returns frequently to teach on Kauai.
In the GBTT, Hollis will bring her incredible poise, radiance and expertise to the topic of Ayurvedic principles and the effects, benefits and insight that ancient practice can bring to yoga. We are honored to have her in the space and spreading her love.

Hollis Church's latest venture is The Glowing Body, a combination yoga studio, apparel shop and high-eneregy foods cafe in Downtown North.
Church is relaying all this from the heart of her latest venture, The Glowing Body, a combination yoga studio, apparel shop, and high-energy foods cafe in Downtown North.She's animated, dressed head to toe in shades of purple, hair in two tiny pigtails, purple butterfly earrings swinging as she goes into the part where she became the winter caretaker, enthralled with the cold and the beauty, the physical work, radioing the weather down to the hiking guides."If I hadn't gotten pregnant, I probably would have been a lifer on Mt. LeConte," she says.A craving for beefsteak alerted the "sincere vegan" to her changing hormones, and back down the mountain she did hike.
"I started cooking for families in town because I could put my daughter Kira on the floor or in a backpack," she says."Then one thing led to another."
Knoxville's first coffee house, Java, opened and Church offered to make its muffins."Then I started making lunch stuff ... "
During a stint as a sous chef she hit it off with local raw and vegetarian food maven Yawah Awolowo and they went into vegetarian catering."We ended up splitting the company when the backstage catering got going," says Church."I really enjoyed that and Yawah was doing more weddings and parties.We're still great friends."
The LeConte experience held her in good stead, says Church."When you know how to order groceries that are coming up on llamas, you're born for rock 'n' roll catering," she says with a big grin."It's all by the seat of your pants."
Church still owns the company, Dega Catering, but others now go on tour, not her.Cutting back on travel six years ago let her begin her love affair with yoga."That's when I started, but I'd known since my twenties that I was going to get into it," she says.
Still, says Church, she's never been evangelical."I can't preach because I'm not strict about anything," she says."Yoga and raw foods people can get radical and real precious.But I want to make it something kind of normal--just a little something you can add into your life."
This morning, Church is sitting gracefully on a cafe stool, ready to dip into a bowl of the raw "easy fruit" mix that's her specialty ("We're thinking of converting the name to berry soup," she admits with a smile), surrounded by vases of sunflowers and lucky bamboos and natural wood.It could have been much different—originally Scott Carpenter and Peggy Hambright purchased the building and Church was slated for a full-scale vegetarian restaurant up front.
And it seems right, says Church.
