Thais Taylor is an inner peace, freedom, and wisdom seeker. She is a free spirit in love with nature, oceans, and wind. A mermaid at heart, native to the islands, she finds herself at home in the Caribbean. She has been practicing yoga for over a decade and teaching for the last four.
In 2009, Thais moved to the magical and beautiful island of St John, (US Virgin Islands) taking her personal practice to a new level. Completely emerging herself into the natural wonders of the island, it was this year when she first stepped on a paddle board. Combining a playful blend of challenging poses with deep relaxing stretches at the end of her paddles,she began to teach Stand Up Padddleboard Yoga and started her own business Solshine SUP yoga.
Thais teaches and practices a variety of multidimensional vinyasa flows, pranayama techniques, SUP yoga, and has fallen in love with Yin yoga. Her yoga philosophy is based on the belief that life is purely driven by our interconnections with nature and all of its wonders. While she does enjoy an active vinyasa flow practice, she has come to love practicing and guiding more therapeutic, healing practices such as Yin, and restorative yoga. She has found that most of us in the adventure industry live a very fiery, high energetic lifestyle, and including these self soothing and healing practices is vital not only for our bodies but mind alike.
