Love Tara Stiles. Best yoga instructor I've worked with. I didn't think yoga would be challenging for someone athletic like me. I really couldn't have been more wrong. It made me control and move my body in ways I never could before, and it was an amazing outlet for stress.

- Brooklyn Decker

One of the things I like about Tara is her ability to make yoga accessible to people who might be scared of it or think it might be too esoteric.

- Jane Fonda


We are both nonconformists who have incurred the wrath of traditional yogis,” Mr. Chopra said of Ms. Stiles, whom he now considers his personal instructor. “A lot of the criticism is resentment of her rapid success. I have been doing yoga for 30 years. I have had teachers of all kinds. Taking lessons from her has been more useful to me than taking yoga from anyone else.

- Deepak Chopra


Tara Stiles has got to be the coolest yoga instructor ever.

About Michael Taylor

Mike is a co-founder, guide, and resident healer at Strala. Named “Best Mover” by MindBodyGreen and one of Shape Magazine’s Hottest Trainers, he’s practiced Eastern movement and healing techniques, including tai chi, qigong, and shiatsu, for more than two decades. Mike studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, and alternative medicine and psychology at Oxford. After running into walls with standard medical practice in the U.S. and England, Mike left his healthcare roots. He worked at a steel mill for a while, joined a web company, and then founded a few more. As Strala's co-founder, Mike has found his way back to health care done right: helping people let go of stress in their bodies and minds, become their own best caregivers, and live happy capable lives. Mike is the husband of yoga master Tara Stiles, and climbs a few mountains in his spare time.
