Michael Taylor

Mike Taylor is the co-founder of Strala along with his wife Tara Stiles. He studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, and complementary medicine at Oxford. Mike has practiced Eastern movement and healing, including tai chi and qi gong, for more than 30 years. In his younger years, Mike challenged centuries of reasonable and well-tested martial traditions in hundreds of competitions, by applying unruly imagination to a world where rules were unbreakable. His record established the strength of finding your own way in your own body, rather than copying the techniques of other people’s traditions. Through Strala, Mike has found his way back to health care done right: helping people let go of stress in their bodies and minds, enable their lives, and become their own best caregivers.

Testimonials
"After completing Michael Taylor's online class in 2 dedicated evenings, it's like Tai Chi is now the most easy and natural thing for me to do ever, and I will continue doing it on a regular basis. He gets right to the heart of it - the principles of natural movement, and that's where magic begins to happen. For anyone interested in simple daily movement, stress-reduction, balance, martial arts, even yoga, I highly recommend this course."
— Manya D.

— Steven O.
"Mike is the ultimate tai chi guru. Because of him and his teachings, I've been able to gain strength, strengthen my immune system, calm my mind, and all around feel better about myself and my standing in the world (no pun intended). I highly recommend learning tai chi from this man!"
