Taryn

Coach

The newest member of the NW Corporate Yoga team, Taryn is excited to bring her sense of play and life-long learning to a new community.

Taryn teaches alignment-based, flow classes where each individual can explore how they connect to their own body and being, as well as the world around them. She loves finding the connections between what she discovers on the mat and her life outside of yoga.

Having worked in the outdoor industry on San Juan Island for much of the last 10 years, Taryn has taught yoga on mossy knolls, rocky beaches, and during potlucks on yurt patios. She is excited to move into teaching in an environment where fewer bugs are likely to crawl across her or her students during their final relaxation.
