I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth” — the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

Tara Stiles and her husband Michael Taylor quickly became two of my closest friends since I first met them in 2010. Tara played a huge role in healing my lower back, and their philosophy on movement has had a lasting impact on me. (It's something I talk a lot about in my book!) She's also been such a tremendous supporter of all things mbg and is one of the most optimistic and inspiring people I know!
