TAYLOR YOSS, certified yoga instructor
I am the proud mother of two girls, ages 10 and 8. I am also a devotee to the art of yoga. yogees combines my love for working with fellow yoga enthusiasts and kids with my enthusiasm for unique physical and mental wellness.
Personally I have found yoga to be such an asset to my life; it has changed me in such profound ways. Yoga is a non-competitive sport; how many things can we say that about today? Yoga builds self-esteem and self respect. It promotes physical strength, balance and flexibility. One of the greatest things about yoga practice is that it is imaginative and helps in developing creative thinking skills. Yoga also helps to work on the importance of posture. It is amazing to see how something as simple as standing up straight makes you feel better and more confident! Yoga also helps us to understand the importance of respect for ourselves and others. Not only is this part of the “yoga mantra”, but it also benefits our day-to-day relationships. To be kind to others, to share, to be considerate of all kinds of people and to have an understanding of our differences…these are the lessons I teach to my students.
Currently I am teaching classes at Anshi Torah Levine Academy, Temple Emanu-El, The Davinci School Dallas Ridgewood Recreation Center two studios Uptown Yoga Lakewood and Karmany and on Saturday’s I get to teach “practice” yogees with the kids at Gold’s Gym. I am also doing private classes in the Highland Park, North Dallas and Plano areas. This past summer I participated in some camps in Dallas, at Levine Academy, Temple Emanu-El and Temple Shalom. Also I continued my collaboration with swimmers by Jessica.
I am certified by both mini yogis and have a 200 hour RYT training through yoga alliance from the Dallas Yoga Center.
I believe yoga can make a difference!
