Taryn Vander Hoop





Hi! I'm Taryn!

I'm a dancer, yogi, and business woman who loves connecting inspiring people to other equally amazing people! I love watching tiny but powerful ideas manifest into fully realized projects. 

My first love was movement and I firmly believe in the power of movement to heal, change, and transform. 

When we  learn to move with our breath in yoga, we are actually emoting. "E" as a prefix means "out of" or "from" and "motion" means to move. So emotion comes from motion and in order to have an emotional release something has to shift internally. 

We feel differently after we practice yoga BECAUSE we are experiencing are internal releases of tension in the muscles and fascia on a deep and profound level. Since movement yields change in all things (including you!), this is key to understanding how transformation occurs through yoga and movement.

To bring our body, breath, and spirit into union is the ultimate goal of yoga, and to release stuck tension and unprocessed or trapped emotional trauma is an invaluable added bonus to the practice.

So let's get moving and emoting together! Namaste.

Eight Easy Changes YOU can make to help the Environment!

Before I met my husband, I was living unconsciously and making a lot of thoughtless choices. If you would have asked me if I was passionate about the environment and making conscious choices, I would have said yes! But that would have been pretty far from the truth.


Be in Touch

It would be my pleasure to help you meet your physical goals and guide you on your yoga journey.
