The fearless spirit of entrepreneur Althea Lawton Thompson is as pure as a stream at the break of dawn on a summer’s day. This Cool Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha has found the key to spiritual decadence through her understanding of vibrations, meditation and yoga. This purpose path did not come overnight. She allowed herself to no longer suppress the thought of going beyond and opened her mind further than the boundaries of organized religion.
Working as an executive for GE Capital in a number of financial services and human resource capacities fulfilled that endeavor, until a layoff in 1996 gave her the opportunity to do what she was truly passionate about – fitness.
Althea earned several certifications in personal training, aquatic fitness, group exercise, indoor cycling, yoga and Pilates. She became a faculty member for the American Council on Exercise (ACE), a continuing education provider for the American Fitness and Aerobics Association (AFAA), and a 200HR registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). In 2001, she produced and released the first of six exercise videos in the Altheatized™ series and began presenting on the fitness convention circuit. She was highlighted in magazines including Best Body, Essence, Parenting, Upscale and Oxygen.
Althea is a woman who wears many hats. Another hat she’ll be wearing is conference director at the Limitlessly Living Conference which is taking place in the Atlanta area on June 10th. She and is sharing her truth and how she found her way to the type of peace many long for. That in itself is Living Limitlessly.
