Influenced by many inspiring yoga teachers, many peers, my aim is to authentically share the transformative potential of yoga to my students through relatable approach of teaching. The basis of my teaching philosophy is that every body can benefit from the yoga and awareness practices.
I teach in a way that provides full spectrum practice. From setting intention, meditation, pranayama, and internal awareness, I hold a heart-centered, safe space for my students to embody their own personal experiences on the mat.
I know I’ve always been a yogi since I was little, I just didn’t know what to call it. I’ve always been reflective and have an intuitive nature. Over 3,500 hours of self study of different modalities along with reading, trainings, there’s definitely a lot to learn in this lifetime! I finally received my yoga teacher training certificate from Anchorage Yoga in 2016 after 10 years of on and off yoga practice.
My affinity for self-reflection, universal truth has led me to self-study various forms of mindfulness practices over the past 14 years. The physical practice of yoga came secondary, I didn’t really have a devout practice until years later, with young family, and “busy” professional career in Finance and Business administration I struggled to find time for the physical practice in the midst of overwhelm. But ever since I step foot on the mat years years ago I know that there’s something about yoga that made me meet myself where I’m at, so I come back to my mat over and over again. I knew then I wanted to teach Yoga and that I have something to share in the world in my own little way.

Beginning yoga as a way to move her body energetically while managing chronic neck pain, Taylor would say she started yoga at her lowest point of fitness. Getting little to no sleep at night and battling body aches, she decided something had to be done. Taylor picked up a Rodney Yee: Power Yoga DVD, which sat on her dresser for months before she finally got around to giving it a try. She began practicing occasionally for a couple of years, eventually moving on to daily YouTube videos and finally her very first public class in Pueblo, Colorado.
In the summer of 2015, Taylor began her 200-hour training to become a certified yoga teacher at a wonderful studio in Trinidad, Colorado. Learning the ins and outs of Hatha Yoga allowed her to connect with her spiritual and emotional self. Completing training in August of that year, Taylor moved home to Alaska shortly after.
Since the completion of her training, Taylor has maintained a consistent home practice, and supplements with several studio classes a month. Yoga continues to guide her through something new each time she rolls out her mat, and even when she steps into day to day life. She lives with little to no pain, and feels stronger than ever.
Taylor highly encourages students who have attended little to no public classes in the past to join her as she takes yoga back to basics. Focusing on alignment and maintaining mind-body connection throughout your practice is of utmost importance, along with having a lot of fun. Prepare to smile, laugh, challenge yourself, transform your body and mind, and probably even hug your neighbor.
