J. MICHAEL TAYLOR incurred Injuries in his mid-thirties which led him to yoga and with extreme luck, to Iyengar yoga.  He started practicing Iyengar yoga with Kathleen Wright in 1987 and began apprenticing and teaching with Gabriel Halpern of  the Yoga Circle in 1989.  Under the graceful guidance of Lois Steinberg and Laurie Blakeney he became a certified Iyengar instructor in 2008.  Michael continues to study and practice with Laurie and also with Bob Wittinghill and Todd Howell of the Yoga Circle.  When not doing yoga you can find him in his studio making art, music and just enjoying life.
