Describe yoga in one word?
What’s your most unforgettable yoga experience?
- Spending a week with yogis each year in the jungles and on the beach in Costa Rica on retreat. We get to connect, go on adventures, save turtles, and practice without distraction. It's what I look forward to each year.
What’s your statement about “men & yoga”?
- More men should do more yoga.
What advice would you give someone who wants to start doing yoga?
- Many studios offer a new client deal. Explore and shop around at different studios with different teachers until you find the right style and teacher for you. You can also join YogaGlo.com-- it's like the Netflix of Yoga and you can practice in the comfort of your own home until you get the basics down.
Thank you Taylor!!
