    Creating an Inclusive Environment in Your Yoga Class

    Creating an Inclusive Environment in Your Yoga Class

    I believe that yoga is for everyBODY and is a practice and lifestyle that should be accessible to anyone interested in learning it. My vision is for everyone to feel safe, seen and accepted in class just the way they are.
    It is our responsibility as teachers to set the tone and actively create an inclusive environment and yoga community. Learning how to work with students in a way that doesn’t inadvertently offend, demoralize, dismiss or exclude is just as essential to teaching yoga as learning anatomy or sequencing.
    In this episode:
    Tips to be mindful of in creating an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment for your yoga students!

    Doing Your Best Looks Different Every Day

    Doing Your Best Looks Different Every Day

    What does doing “your best” look like?
    I know at times I can be hard on myself...comparing myself to yesterday or last year...some days I feel like I’m not doing “enough”. When in reality, I am doing my best and every day my ‘best’ looks different.
    Your best is not going to look the same as anyone else, or how you were yesterday or ten years ago.
    In this episode I chat about:
    - How doing your best changes day to day
    - Releasing comparison to others and yourself

    This weeks episode is a Guided Body Scan Meditation!

    In this meditation I’ll guide you to different points in your body to notice and observe what is present physically, mentally and emotionally. This mindfulness practice invites you to release what no longer serves you...creating space in all layers of yourself.

    Yoga teacher….YOU are needed now more than ever. The world is experiencing a collective trauma and this couldn’t be a better time for you to learn about how trauma-informed yoga can help your community.

    You Deserve to Take Up Space

    You Deserve to Take Up Space

    What does it really means to ‘take up space’??
    Taking up space means recognizing you have the right to be heard, use your voice, show up fully, have opinions, speak your truth, live your truth, expressing yourself and your needs without ever allowing anyone else take this away from you.
    At times in my life I’ve noticed that I would dim my light for fear of being too much for others. I kept myself smaller to ‘fit in the box’.
    And now I’ve made a promise to myself to never lessen who I am, to always show up fully as me, take up all the f*cking space my soul wants to take up and hopefully in return help others do the same. And if it’s too much for ya...then Byeeeeeee Felicia. 


    In this episode:
    What taking up space looks likeQuestions to reflect on regarding how you are showing up in your lifeWays to begin taking up space today!

Making the world of difference! 💕🧘🏻‍♀️

Taylor has been able to capture through her Podcasts an abundance of knowledge, experience and pure gifts. As a new yoga instructor and wading her way through the journey, Taylor’s Podcasts have made all the difference. The content is relevant and authentic and has allowed me to network in a way I never thought possible. I have returned to these Podcasts time and time again for guidance and mentorship. Taylor is truly a gift to the yoga community.
