Shortly after her injury Taylor began Physical Therapy and her Pilates journey as a student under the Ramona's Pilates method in St. Louis, MO. Taylor was quickly encouraged to move forward with her certification after her adoration and interest in Pilates began.
Taylor decided to certify with the Internationally Renowned Balanced Body Program while finishing her degree in Hawai'i in 2015. The Balanced Body Program has expanded Taylor's clients from professional athletes looking for longevity in their careers, to everyday clients starting Pilates for the first time or working to rehabilitate an injury.
Working on the Big Island of Hawaii, Taylor was one of only four certified Instructors on the entire island and was a favorite choice among many Hawaiian resorts and studios looking to bring Pilates to the Big Island. Taylor has dedicated her career to Pilates and loves tailoring the organic Pilates methodology to individual clients to help transform their bodies and better their lives.
