Symmetry Founder & CEO
Taylor Somerville founded Symmetry in 2018 after working in the investment business for 15 years. Taylor was over-stressed, anxious, short-tempered, and felt like he was out of control. Taylor discovered breathwork and other key practices as a way to deal with the stress and anxiety in his personal and professional life. Through breathwork, Taylor was able to learn how to respond to stressful situations in a productive manner rather than reacting.
After seeing the positive changes in himself, Taylor felt a calling to help others improve their own stress management, anxiety, performance, and overall health and wellness. We all struggle with these issues at some point in our lives but there are tools we can use to better prepare ourselves to handle stress. Now, Taylor focuses on teaching you these tools. Through Symmetry, he helps busy people take back control of their lives so they have more time, more energy, and less stress!
Taylor is affiliated with XPT, founded by Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reece. Through XPT, Taylor gained extensive knowledge of breathwork, heat and ice contrast therapy, and XPT’s breath, move and recover lifestyle. In 2018, Taylor became one of the first XPT certified coaches and is one of only six XPT master coaches.
Lauren started playing soccer when she was 5 and played all the way through college and beyond – including a few seasons on semi-pro teams in St. Louis and Memphis. After fighting back from several knee injuries and achy joints Lauren eventually hung up her cleats and focused on a more sustainable practice: yoga.
Lauren moved to Memphis from Manhattan at the end of 2015. Coming from a fast-paced, high intensity fashion industry, she found peace an hour at a time in her yoga practice and through breathwork. Lauren is a 500-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher and teaches at Hot Yoga Plus. Her yoga, breathwork, and teaching practice empower her to take back control of her busy life and be more present. Yoga, and more specifically getting in touch with her body, breath, and their connection led Lauren to a more mindful way of living. These practices gave her the tools to slow down, notice, and create a bit more space to be able to respond instead of react.
Lauren completed the XPT Breathwork Certification and is passionate about helping people improve their lives by finding more peace, confidence and strength through movement and breath.
