Why Yoga for Recovery?
Yoga is important because – as we state in one of our SHE RECOVERS Intentions & Guiding Principles – “Recovery is a journey to wholeness – we take care of our mind, body and spirit.”
In the west, we have become really good at addressing the mind and spirit when someone is on a path of recovery (talk therapy, 12 step programs, etc.), and those are wonderful approaches but they don’t address the body.
We can talk about a traumatic experience – over and over and over again – and it will can help tremendously. But, unless we release the the experience from the body, illness, chronic fatigue, dis-ease, autoimmune disorders may manifest. We also need to heal the body from the stress we put in through prior to recovery.
Yoga is a pathway to holistic healing and recovery. Join Taryn as she takes you on a gentle, trauma-informed journey of exploration that will help heal your body, mind and spirit.
“Taryn possesses such an amazing energy that is warm, welcoming and inclusive to all. She has THE BEST voice! Since moving away from Victoria I’ve never found a yogi who measures up to her – SO EXCITED FOR HER VIDEOS! I can’t wait to bring her into my living room!”

Issues in Your Tissues
Nikki Myers from Y12SR teaches us that everything that happens to us in our lives, we store in our bodies.
Resilience is like a muscle – the more life throws at us, the more opportunities we have to strengthen our resilience and thrive.
Feel It To Heal It
We have learned that feelings won’t kill us – but running from them – might.

Crimes Against Wisdom
If you have been hearing yourself saying, “I know I shouldn’t, but I am going to do it anyway” – this class is for you.
Hi! I’m Taryn.
I am in recovery from substance use disorder, trauma, disordered eating, self- harm, codependency and all of the things that came with those things; shame, low self- worth, and low self- esteem.
Today, I know, for a fact, that I have been through everything I have been through – every heartbreak, addiction, trauma, insecurity – to bring me to exactly where I am in this moment. I am the co-founder of SHE RECOVERS (with my mama, Dawn Nickel), a Trauma Informed Yoga instructor, dōTERRA Wellness Advocate and currently completing my Recovery Coach training. I have led over 20 yoga for recovery retreats, presented at several Yoga conferences, and have co-taught alongside Elena Brower. More recently, I’ve started teaching SHE RECOVERS Yoga at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and am creating a SHE RECOVERS Yoga Teacher Training Program.
It is my honor, privilege and responsibility to do this work. Deep bow in gratitude.
MORE ABOUT TARYN
Recovery has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a “12 step home” and I am in recovery myself (not 12 step.) Using movement as a form of therapy has also been a part of my life for as along as I can remember – I started dancing at the age of 3.
I always knew that I wanted to work in the recovery field. At age 18, right after high school, I took a course which was an introduction to becoming an Addiction Therapist. The content wasn’t resonating – so, I moved onto the next career choice on my list – makeup artist! What I loved about being a makeup artist was the confidence I would see in the women at the end of our appointment. All day, everyday, I was helping women (and men!) feel more confident and powerful. The clients who sat in my chair whom had little – or no – self esteem really affected me. I made it my responsibility to make sure they felt heard, seen, confident and beautiful during our time together. Looking back, I was acting as a bit of a coach during those appointments! Some days, I struggled with the “vanity” of the industry, but today I say, if a little (or a lot) of mascara and lipgloss assists in someone feeling like a badass – RIGHT ON, GO FOR IT.
Yoga came into my life during an extremely difficult time – mom had cancer, so my sister and I moved provinces to be with her. We were young, scared, didn’t know anyone and didn’t have jobs. I went to my first class for physical reasons – dancing was too hard on my body and I figured yoga would be a nice alternative. The emotional and mental benefits I received from my first class – freaked me out, to be honest. I was not expecting to I leave class full of gratitude and hope. I didn’t think they were possible to cultivate during such an uncertain time in my life. I immediately started volunteering my time at the front desk of the studio in exchange for free yoga classes.
I realized I had found the avenue to work with people in recovery that resonated with me, so I took my first 300 hour yoga teacher training at Moksana Yoga in 2007. At that time, I was looking for resources, trainings and literature about the profound benefits of adding yoga to a recovery toolbox, as well as the similarities between 12 step and yoga philosophies. I could not find anything on the subject! I realized that I was going to have to develop my own style of teaching to those in recovery. I started volunteer teaching at the local detox facility – and learned a lot about teaching trauma informed yoga – through trial and error. Luckily, in 2011 Durga Lee was offering (and I received) a Yoga of Recovery Certification at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram. In 2014, I attended one of the most important trainings I have ever attended, “Yoga for Mental Health and Trauma” with Nicole Marcia.
