Erin Taylor on Balance, Postpartum Fitness, and Practical Yoga For Real Life

 Erin Taylor is an international yoga coach and the founder and leader of Jasyoga, a revolutionary approach to yoga for athletes.

As a collegiate basketball player, she first thought yoga was boring, and that it was time that could be better spent on the court or in the weight room. It wasn’t until she was sidelined by a spinal injury from overtraining that she discovered that there is a path of less resistance. Yoga was the “Reset” that helped her to bring things back into balance.

Erin founded Jasyoga with the goal of providing practical yoga solutions to as many people as possible. Over the last decade, she has infused meditation, functional anatomy, and physical therapy techniques into her practice, and speaks in a language that athletes can hear.

Now accessible anytime, anywhere via video.jasyoga.com, and with operations in Seattle and London, Erin’s approach has been widely embraced by athletes ranging from recreational to elite, and can be configured to help anyone become more balanced and achieve their goals.

In this episode, which I absolutely loved, Erin shares what the concept of "balance" looks like for her in her real everyday life. We also talk about what it means for something to truly be a priority, as well as when to push vs when to be more gentle with yourself.

Erin shares the story of how she got into yoga, what's unique about her approach, and why her mission is to make yoga more approachable, useful, and practical for both athletes and non-athletes. Oh, and we also dig right into the most common excuses people have for why yoga won't work for them - including all the reasons I used to use myself - and Erin talks through each of them.

She also shares openly about being a new mom, and about why women need to be kinder to themselves postpartum.

Erin is so delightfully real, and I hope you love her stories and our conversation as much as I did!

    Interested in this topic, but am struggling with the number of times that the guest uses the word “like” to get out coherent thoughts. Don’t know if I can finish this one.
    Enjoy the podcast, but this episode is just a struggle.
