After spine surgery in 2013, I was introduced to the Pilates Reformer and was instantly hooked. I had found something that could strengthen my core and restore my lost mobility and flexibility. Reformer allowed me to workout my entire body in a safe, yet effective way.
Already certified in physical fitness training, I soon became certified in Pilates and Pilates Reformer. I have found that teaching Pilates & Fitness is an excellent way for me to help others feel better and become more in tune with their bodies. My goal is to help my clients achieve optimal wellness by developing strength, flexibility, muscle tone, and balance. Pilates can be helpful to anyone regardless of gender or age.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband, 2 sons, and 3 dogs.

Taylor received her RYT 200 through Black Swan Yoga. Trained heavily in how to teach a powerful Vinyasa flow class. Although she has the ability to lead a powerful yoga class, her 1 year journey as a teacher has lead her in teaching a slower more focused class. This has allowed her to be more mindful of her students bodies and their alignment, helping them develop a better personal practice.
Taylor is interested in having more knowledge of yoga therapy , and the human anatomy in general. One thing she is passionate about is making people feel better physically through movement, so they can continue to do the things they love!
