We had the good fortune of connecting with Taylor Wirht and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Taylor, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“When you own your breath, no one can steal your peace.’ I love this quote because I find it to be quite true. Along with learning to control the thoughts and calm the mind; if you can control your breath you may also calm the mind. When we worry about the future, what others may think or do, we give away our power. When we take control of our own faculties we can respond to life calmly, rather than react. Meditation helps with mindset, much like breath work (pranayama) helps with our physiological response to stress. There is much research behind a steady breath contributing to a relaxed nervous system. When we aren’t in fight or flight we can handle all that life throws at us much more smoothly.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If a friend was visiting I would take them to eat at True Food Kitchen, Spiral Diner, Kalachandji’s or Flower Child. Perhaps get coffee or tea at Brewed + Pressed or Karmic Grounds and smoothies or wellness beverages at The Gem or Juiceland. I think the Cosmic is an interesting place to attend an event, we could find a local music venue to hangout or explore nature and perhaps hike at one of the nature preserves or meadows around. I also enjoy Summit for indoor rock climbing.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My two boys, Jasper and Sebastian, are the reason I found answers with holistic health, gut healing, and nutrition. Removing things that negatively affected our health and gaining insight and knowledge of how to care for us all completely naturally was pivotal in my path. From there I quickly learned that health and wellness is really a trinity; made up of mind, body, and spirit. You cannot have one without the others. So that led to my awakening through yoga, spirituality, and diving deeper into the mind-body connection. And to that I have to thank my teacher, Chidanandi Sheri Cherokee.
