Super Core with Mike - 15 Minutes

Move powerfully from a strong center

This Strala Super Core 15-minute yoga routine is led by co-founder Mike Taylor, to get you fired up and moving powerfully from your center.

There's the boring kind of core work and there's the fun kind. The boring kind is a bunch of crunches, sit-ups and leg-lifts that leave you waiting for it to be over. The fun kind gets every inch of your body moving in every direction imaginable, plays with your balance, and builds total-body capability right from your belly.

The good news is, we're doing the fun kind. The other good news is, the fun kind gets you far stronger and makes you a much better athlete. So let's have some fun!

Strala combines the movement and healing wisdom of tai chi with the rich form vocabulary of yoga.

Get ready to drop the stress and tension in your body and mind, that keeps you working much harder than you need, to achieve much less than you can.

You'll learn to move powerfully through your life and handle challenge with ease.


Strala was created by Tara Stiles, drawing on her background in classical ballet and choreography, as well as her long-time personal practice in yoga. Tara trained with Paul Taylor Dance Company choreographer and dancer Eileen Cropley, and began her yoga study in the 1990s with her ballet teacher, Rory Foster of American Ballet Theater.

The science and movement of Strala is also guided by Strala co-founder Mike Taylor. Mike studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, and complementary medicine at Oxford. He has practiced Eastern movement and healing, including tai chi and qi gong, for 30 years.

Mike is the resident healer and co-founder of Strala. Named “Best Mover” by MindBodyGreen, he’s practiced Eastern movement and healing techniques, including tai chi, qigong, and shiatsu, for more than three decades.

In his younger years, Mike challenged centuries of reasonable and well-tested martial traditions in hundreds of competitions, by applying unruly imagination to a world where rules were unbreakable. As he got older, he continued on to medical applications of the mind-body connection in university. Mike studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, and alternative medicine and psychology at Oxford. After running into walls with standard medical practice in the U.S. and England, Mike left his healthcare roots. He worked at a steel mill for a while, joined a web company, and then founded a few more.

Now Mike has found his way back to health care done right, helping people let go of stress in their bodies and minds, and become their own best caregivers. Mike climbs a few mountains in his spare time.
