Taylor found yoga (or the other way around) through her meditation practice several years ago during a challenging period in her life. It became a daily practice almost immediately and taught her so much along the way; such as discipline, confidence, strength, and acceptance among many other things. It remains a central facet of her ongoing journey of growth. Yoga has become such a passion and major part of her life throughout her journey, and her goal is to share the magic with as many people as she can.
Having practiced various styles of yoga, Taylor has influences from Ashtanga and
Kundalini Yoga, along with other lineages. Her classes range from high energy to gentle stretching, but all are designed to connect the mind, body, and soul. Her personal experience of yoga has been relatable to life off the mat, and she strives to bring this experience to her students.
J. Shane Carter
Shane (currently on a teaching hiatus) spent a combined 21 years in the US Air Force and Texas Air Guard as a Korean Linguist and Electronic Warfare Officer, before retiring in 2012. During his time as a military officer, he was an instructor at the US Air Force Weapons School and flew over 60 combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, which gave him a unique perspective on the effects of stress. After retiring, Shane spent two years as the Chief Operating Officer of a defense software company, and in 2016 he and his wife, April, opened HK (Human Kindness) Yoga in Seguin Texas, which offered both private and public yoga and meditation classes. Since then, Shane has dedicated his energy to sharing yoga with the community in a variety of ways. In two years of operation, HK Yoga offered classes at public libraries, primary/secondary and university campuses, as well as private organizations catering to veteran, disabled, disadvantaged, youth and elder groups, and shared meditation and yoga practices with over 600 adults and over 300 youth in the Seguin and surrounding area. He is also a dedicated husband and father of four, a Men's Contemplative Camp Host, yoga and meditation teacher, and hobbyist actor/musician who regularly performs in local area theaters and music venues.
