Taryn Strong’s Bio

Taryn Strong is grateful to be in recovery from drug addiction, self harm, disordered eating and codependency. Taryn was raised by recovering parents (Dawn is her mom) so recovery has been a part of her everyday life for a long time. She completed her 300 hour yoga teaching training program in her home town of Victoria, British Columbia in 2007 after falling in love with yogic philosophies and the power of transformation through the mind/body/spirit connection. Taryn received her “Yoga of Recovery” certification at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm and her “Yoga for Trauma” certification in 2014. She has since developed a unique “Yoga for Recovery” program which integrates yoga and meditation with spirituality and recovery principles from a wide variety of recovery pathways (including but not limited to the 12 step pathway). In addition to teaching yoga classes across Victoria and leading the Yoga for Recovery program for She Recovers Retreats, Taryn’s latest role is as the creator and artisan of She Recovers Malas. For more about Taryn have a look at her video.
