About the Author

Erin Taylor is an international leader in yoga for athletes and founder of Jasyoga, a revolutionary approach to yoga for athletes. Her mission is to help as many athletes as possible use yoga to achieve their goals, and become more balanced and resilient along the way. She shares her approach in Hit Reset: Revolutionary Yoga for Athletes and Work In: The Athlete’s Plan for Real Recovery and Winning Results.

It was her own experience of being sidelined by injury as a collegiate basketball player that first showed her how yoga can be the “Reset” that brings athletes back into balance. Erin founded Jasyoga to equip athletes with powerful skills to prevent injuries and enhance recovery, optimizing performance in sport and life. Over the last decade, she has infused meditation, functional anatomy, and physical therapy techniques into her practice. Now accessible anytime, anywhere via her online video platform and Hit Reset and Work In books, Erin’s approach has been widely embraced by athletes ranging from recreational to elite, and can be configured to help anyone achieve their goals.

In addition to privately coaching sports teams and athletes, she hosts yoga-for-athletes certification programs and writes a popular blog at jasyoga.com/blog. She lives in London with her husband and daughter.
