Teacher Spotlight: Taylor Eyewalker
November 3, 2016
I was so excited to have the opportunity to hear from Taylor Eyewalker. Her mystical approach to life brings a beautiful touch to her daily rituals and yogic offerings. She is so inspiring and caring, I cant wait to go to Greece with her in May. Here’s some highlights from our talk.
What does your practice look like? What is your favorite pose?
I am a daily yoga practitioner. I have my daily sadhana which takes about an hour and a half and I also attend my teachers classes on the regular. I don’t really have a favorite pose, but I do have practices I favor over others. I definitely love the deep pranayam practices because it gets my nervous system deeply activated.
Who are your teachers? Who/what inspires your teachings?
Who/what inspires your teachings? My teachers are Tej Kaur Khalsa, Harijiwan Singh Khalsa and Guru Jagat Kaur. A flavor of all three of their teaching approach with my own flavor and personality have come together to create my style.
What are your favorite self care rituals or habits?
Self care is a big one for me. My top practices are cold showers, ice baths and cryotherapy for the nervous system. I do oiling and guasha scraping on my body following with essential oils. I go to the spa at least once a month. I eat lightly on the full moon, new moon and the 11th & 4th day of the moon so I can keep my glandular system functioning optimally and I make sure I laugh a lot and listen to music to keep my heart and spirits alive!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I love to travel, design spaces, work with textiles, drink and serve cha dao tea ceremony, listen to music, create food and have delicious dining experiences. Many of these things are best experienced with those nearest and dearest to my heart.
How do you balance spiritual practice with life’s daily challenges?
I know that we can handle anything that is presented in front of us if we have enough energy to handle it. So, I make sure it is my business to do my daily sadhana, life or limb. That single-handedly keeps me in check for all that I may be presented.
What are your favorite yoga books to read for inspiration?
Two of my favorite yoga books are, “The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan” and “I am Woman”
What’s your mantra?
lately they’ve been, Wahe Guru! It’s all happening! and Victory!
What excites you about this upcoming trip to Greece?
As long as I remember I’ve been inspired by God and Goddess archetypes. When i started learning a little bit about mythology and philosophy I began my desire to go to this power point on the planet to see if I could activate that more deeply within myself!
