In 2013, after several extended trips to Mysore, Taylor Hunt, a devoted student and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga, was granted Level 2 Authorization to teach fromSri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) and has had the honor of assisting in the shala in India on two occasions.
Taylor is dedicated to sharing the healing practice with others.Taylor was the first Ashtanga teacher in Ohio granted Level II Authorization . Seeking to preserve the traditional method, he teaches daily Mysore classes at Ashtanga Yoga Columbus and offers workshops around the country. He is also the author of the recently published book, A Way From Darkness, and director of the Trini Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the life-changing practice of Ashtanga with those suffering from addiction. He continues to inspire others through his story of transformation and accessible approach to the practice.
We will be hosting Taylor Hunt from the 29th of March until the 2nd of April 2017.
