Professional bio 

Carly Taylor, founder of Ginger Pai, is passionate about inspiring people to live a compassionate, courageous, and connected life.

Carly is appreciated for her insightful teaching, delivered with authenticity, good humor, and a gentle and down to earth approach. Since 2006 Carly has delivered self development workshops and mindful Hatha yoga sessions for emotional and mental health in a diverse range of locations. She successfully coaches people of all ages, one-on-one, to help them compassionately navigate challenging times in their lives. Through her consultancy work she supports business’s and individuals to create meaningful connections and wellness programs. Carly is based in Lisbon, Portugal and a frequent visitor to her home city – London, UK.


I have utmost reverence and gratitude to the many inspiring people who I have studied with and supported me over the years.

Nalanie Chellaram

A deeper authentic understanding of yoga began for me when I met Nalanie. Nalanie is a disciple of Swami Satchidanada. Nalanie’s grounded spiritual guidance has supported me through some of the most difficult times. Her example as a wife, mother, businesswoman and now grandmother, who has devoted her life to selfless service. She shows that it is not necessary to withdraw from life in order to find the ‘Guru within’.

Gosia Gorna

My Personal coach for many years. Gosia has guided me to face some of my biggest fears and access strength, courage and grace while learning to listen to my intuition. She is the most amazing transformation coach for other coaches, thought leaders and game changers in soulful service.

Dr Lyn Prashant

A desire to deepen my knowledge, understanding and personal relationship to loss and grief lead me to meet Lyn. I traveled all the way to Mexico in May 2018 and had the privilege to study with Lyn in an intimate group. A somatic and holistic approach to grief therapy.
Lyn is an incredible woman. Deeply compassionate, humorous, strong and not afraid to go where many others would run a mile from.

Heather Mason

I met Heather many years ago whilst both attending another professional training. Her work as the founder of The Minded Institute in London is cutting edge in the field of yoga and mindfulness for mental health. I have hosted Heather’s workshops, attended numerous as a student and completed her training course for PTSD. Heather has a unique ability to share complicated information in the most absorbable, understandable and compassionate way.

Elena Brower

Elena Brower’s online yoga classes inspire beauty and authenticity. They made it possible for me to receive and be held on days when there has been no possibility to attend classes. Especially during my most fragile moments of grief. I continue to practice with her frequently on line.
