Nicole Taylor has practiced yoga and meditation for over a decade and taught since 2008. Nicole’s life purpose is to embody and create sacred spaces to support people in claiming their joy, healing, and innate ability to thrive. Studying ParaYoga with Yogarupa Rod Stryker was Nicole's first introduction to ayurveda, and the seed planted there led Nicole to seek out Kathryn Templeton as her ayurveda teacher and mentor. Nicole was part of the first graduating class of NAMA-certified Ayurvedic Health Counselors at the Himalayan Institute. In addition to being an AHC, a yoga teacher, and an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist Torchbearer, Nicole is a Conscious Living Coach certified by the Hendricks Institute, and works in public engagement at a healthcare not-for-profit organization in Philadelphia.
