Taryn Strong is a founder of the SHE RECOVERS® Foundation. She chose a more varied and embodied approach to recovery and embraced yoga as her initial healing pathway. Over the years, she has developed a recovery practice steeped in ritual, ceremony, and healing modalities born of the earth, including plant allies and medicines. As a herbalist, trauma-informed yoga instructor, certified professional recovery coach who proudly calls herself a witch, Taryn now works as a women’s empowerment mentor and offers provocative programs related to seasonal and moon cycles, menstrual magic, and healing from the trauma of money.
Operating from a trauma-informed lens and a firm believer in anti-oppressive practices, Taryn brings an empathic and invitational approach to healing - empowering women to find and follow individualized pathways and patchworks of recovery.
Taryn's courageous vulnerability and passion for recovering out-loud has made her an influential voice in the global recovery movement - smashing the stigma often associated with substance use and mental health issues. Taryn creates and lives with her beloved and two dogs within the ancestral and unceded traditional territory of the Hul’qumi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples (Saltspring Island).
