Erin Taylor’s Bio:

As a collegiate basketball player, Erin thought yoga was boring at first, 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 over-training that she discovered that there is a path of less resistance. Yoga was the “Reset” that helped her to bring things back into balance and, although no sport-specific yoga solutions existed at that time, she quickly realized what a powerful tool the practice is for optimizing athleticism and maximizing potential in all aspects of life.

Erin is the author of HIT RESET and, over the last decade, has evolved Jasyoga with the goal of helping people to redefine and sustain balance in order to close the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. Now running in the U.S., the U.K. and their video platform, Jasyoga has been widely embraced by athletes ranging from recreational to elite, and can be configured to help anyone achieve their sports and fitness goals. Getting practical, impactful solutions into the hands and hearts of as many people as possible remains Erin’s mission. And to keep it real along the way.
