I discovered Taylor Somerville’s work on the insight timer meditation app, and he swiftly has become my favorite teacher. I use his guided meditations every single day, and I’m continually delighted by the degree of both relaxation and power that I feel after the sessions. Taylor has a wonderfully kind manner, such that even in the most intense breathing challenges, you can always sense Read more…
As a high performing athlete, I am always looking for an advantage, an edge.

I have loved working with Taylor to improve my relationship with stress – just like his slogan says. This concept was fascinating to me when I first heard about it from him and is something I now think about on an almost daily basis as I apply the principles and techniques Taylor has taught me through 1:1 conversations, group breathing classes and ice/heat experiences! I have 4 little kids and started my own own business Read more….
