Our SHE RECOVERS® movement is growing.

We need more healers and teachers to help us reach more women. We are looking for passionate and inspired yoga teachers to share their knowledge and experience with our growing community.

“The SHE RECOVERS Yoga Teacher Training exceeded any and all expectations! The depth of knowledge and experience that Taryn has in this realm is truly exceptional. Her gifts of not only being an excellent teacher, but of embodying the essence of what it means to hold space and “walk the talk” of not only yoga but also the @she_recovers movement – is truly magical. I am so inspired by this experience and cannot wait to share with the world”

~ Leah, Graduate 2019 ~

Hi! I’m Taryn.

I am a founder of the SHE RECOVERS® Foundation (with my mama, Dawn Nickel.) I am in recovery from substance use disorder, trauma, disordered eating, self-injurious behavior, codependency, and all of the things that manifested as those things; shame, low self-worth, low self-esteem, and being afraid of using my voice.

Today, I know, for a fact, that everything I have been through – every heartbreak, addiction, trauma, insecurity – was to bring me to exactly where I am in this moment. I love recovery.

I am the creator of the ‘Trauma Informed SHE RECOVERS® Yoga Teacher Training Program’ and am also a Trauma Informed Yoga instructor, SHE RECOVERS® Coach, aromatherapist, herbalist, and silversmith. Since I began teaching yoga in 2007, I have led over 40 yoga for recovery retreats (including a retreat at Kripalu), presented at several Yoga conferences, and have co-taught alongside Elena Brower. You can find my online SHE RECOVERS® Yoga membership HERE (your first month is totally free).

Operating from a trauma-informed lens I am a firm believer in anti-oppressive practices. I have been told I have an empathic and invitational approach to healing, and I love empowering women to find and follow individualized pathways and patchworks of recovery. I believe in leading with courageous vulnerability and have a deep passion for recovering out-loud and smashing the stigma often associated with substance use and mental health issues.

I live, create and play with my beloved and two dogs within the ancestral and unceded traditional territory of the Hul’qumi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples (Saltspring Island).

It would be my greatest honor to welcome, guide, mentor, and travel with you on this healing journey. As Lilla Watson says “if your liberation is bound with mine, then let us work together.”

With deep love and gratitude,

More than ever, our world needs your recovery, your healing and your teaching. If you have heard or felt the call to create yoga offerings specifically for women recovering from all of life challenges, now is the time.
