Michael Taylor
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
"I have been doing yoga for 30 years. I have had teachers of all kinds. Taking lessons from [Tara] has been more useful to me than taking yoga from anyone else."
