Name: Shawn Taylor
Role: Training & Development Manager & Senior Facilitator
Shawn Taylor’s yoga journey began in 2001 in Seattle, WA. Coming off an ambitious attempt of a being a professional snowboarder landed him in not only the Emergency Room but eventually the Yoga room. Yoga began as a way to heal old injuries and restore balance, but soon became a place of powerful self-reflection, healing and personal transformation.
After 15 years in the action sports industry (ten in snowboarding five in surfing) working as a Team Manager, Marketing Director and Product Developer, his passion for Yoga eventually took the reigns. Trained in Bikram Yoga, Synergy and Power Vinyasa. Shawn has taught thousands of students all over the word as well as teaching at Bikram’s Teacher Training for several years and has worked extensively with mentoring new teachers.
With a degree in Exercise Science Technology and a deep love for the wonder of the Cosmos, his classes are energetic, intergalactic, informative and fun.
