Taylor Hunt (RYT 500) is a devoted student of Ashtanga; a system of yoga originally transmitted by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The method of practice taught in Ashtanga Yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressively challenging series of postures. The combination of breath, asana (posture), and dristhi (gazing point) helps to stretch and strengthen the body, release impurities, and focus and calm the mind.
Taylor makes yearly trips to Mysore, India to further his studies at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) under the guidance of his teacher, R. Sharath Jois. In 2013, after several extended trips, Taylor was granted Level 2 Authorization to teach from KPJAYI and had the honor of assisting in the shala for a month.
Taylor is dedicated to sharing the transformative and healing practice with others. Seeking to preserve the traditional method, Taylor teaches the Morning Mysore program at Yoga on High. He continues to inspire others through his own dedication and accessible approach to the practice.
