Taylor (she/her) approaches yoga similarly to how she approaches everyday life: through an intentional lens of joy and gratitude. Taylor found yoga, specifically Burlington Yoga, in 2013 through the encouragement of a dear friend to help balance her highly active lifestyle in board sports. She pursued her RYTT-200 at BY in 2014 in order to deepen her own practice before moving to a yoga retreat center on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica to grow fruits and vegetables as the head gardener. Although she initially never intended on teaching yoga regularly, it was during that long period in the jungle that Taylor discovered a passion for holding space.
Taylor feels as though her personal dharma in life is to act as a channel to help others around her discover their own potential for personal growth and healing through joy.
The type of space that she enjoys holding is unique in the sense that it is both accessible for first time yogis as well as rewarding for advanced practitioners. It is both deeply spiritual as well as light-hearted and fun. Taylor adheres to the practices of traditional Hatha yoga while incorporating her own unique style along the way. She focuses on alignment while moving through strong, intentional holds guided by breath. Pranayama is also utilized to deepen the connection between mind and body and cultivate a sense of grounding. In Taylor’s classes, she encourages everyone to move organically in whichever way the body calls for, whether that be building more heat, resting in stillness, or somewhere in between.
In her personal life, Taylor enjoys snowboarding, skateboarding, hiking, and long walks in the woods with her pup, Kobe. She also loves getting lost in a good story, growing vegetables and getting in the garden, and popping up on stage to tell the occasional joke here and there when the mood strikes.
