As the granddaughter of illustrious author, Ernest Hemingway, Mariel was always destined to be well-known and publicly recognized. However, at the young age of 13, Mariel became famous in her own right when she made her silver screen debut in Lipstick. Four years later her work in Woody Allen's Manhattan earned her an Oscar® nomination. She has since made 30 films and numerous television appearances in series and as a host of several environmental and humanitarian documentaries.
Now at the age of 50, Mariel is the mother of two daughters, Dree (24) and Langley (23). For over 20 years, she has been pursuing her passion for yoga and health and is now seen as a voice of holistic and balanced health and well-being. As part of that role she has led wellness retreats all over America, sharing her insights about movement, silence, nutrition, and home. In 2003, she published her powerful bestselling memoir, Finding My Balance. A truly insightful and inspiring story, of her life's journey through the eyes of yoga and meditation. Mariel's second book called Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside out (Harper Collins San Francisco 2007), is a how-to guide to finding ones balance and health through self-empowering lifestyle techniques and is a huge success for Mariel and especially for those whom incorporate her inspiring advice. Her gluten-free, sugar-free cookbook is called Mariel's Kicthen and her latest book is called Running With Nature.
Mariel's passion is her love of the outdoors...connecting with nature and becoming younger through food, breath, exercise and nature. She has partnered with Robert Williams, an eco adventurer whose life has been dedicated to adventure, healing and nature in a new book and lifestyle company called The WillingWay. They are traveling all over the country sharing what they know about anti-aging, having fun and feeling great.
