About Taylor Deer
Get to know me!
Hello, I’m Taylor and I am a mid-20’s marketing communications professional, Registered Yoga Teacher and world traveler from Northern New Jersey. I couldn’t wait to combine my passion for content development, yoga and traveling the world, so I started Yoga and Travels with Taylor – where I travel to and with YOU to provide private, mindful and fun yoga lessons, classes, workshops and events both near and far. In addition, I am a travel writer and enjoy creating itineraries for anyone who has a sense of wander.
Fate brought me to my first Vinyasa yoga class when I needed it the most. At the time, I didn’t realize how yoga would become an integral part of my life. Fast-forward a year later and I decided to deepen my practice by doing a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. I received my certification in December 2016 at LifePower Yoga by LifeTime Athletic in Montvale, NJ. I currently teach private lessons and I also teach to professional groups who travel abroad. My speciality lies in Ashtanga, heated Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative yoga.
In addition to yoga, I was lucky enough that the travel bug bit me when I studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain during summer 2012. During my summer abroad, I traveled through all of North and Western Spain along with Portugal. Ever since then, my sense of wander has expanded toCanada, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Malta, Thailand, Ireland and all around the United States. In addition, I am excited to conduct a yoga and wellness winter trip to Finland this upcoming December with Crawford Concierge by SitInMySeats.
I graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA with a degree in communication studies, concentrating in public relations. My experience has involved working for various corporations and agencies in the Greater New York City area. Besides owning Yoga and Travels with Taylor, I am also a marketing and content developer for SitInMySeats, a VIP ticket, travel and concierge service agency. My plan is to continue taking yoga to different destinations worldwide.
Along with my passion for marketing, yoga and traveling, I am fashion enthusiast, avid hiker and skier and am constantly exploring hidden gems in the Greater New York City area. During the summer months, I enjoy spending my weekends at my family’s beach house at the Jersey Shore.
I cannot wait to work with you and create inspiration in your yoga and/or travel journey.
