Devoting herself to the practice of yoga in 2008 and teaching worldwide, Taryn embraces all yoga styles and enjoys learning about herself through a practice that offers a challenging Hatha Vinyasa format, as well as a gentle Yin approach. Her teaching approach utilises a progressive step-by-step format. Layering alignment instructions with reminders to connect and move with the currents of the breath, using themes that celebrate individual expression and encourage reverence for life, her strongest desire is to be of service and to allow students to connect to the power within.

"Hohes Niveau an Yoga Hingabe, Wissen und Liebenswürdigkeit"
Die Art der Lehrer ist einzigartig. Olav und Taryn ergänzen sich perfekt. Der Aufbau und die Inhalte des TTC ist sehr gut strukturiert. Was mir am meisten gefallen hat, ist die Expertise in der sich die beiden Lehrer bewegen. Man kann wirklich unglaublich viel lernen und mitnehmen... Es wird eine sehr freundliche und familiäre Atmosphäre geschaffen.
Das Essen und die Unterkunft sind auch sehr gut!

"Opening the heart"
My experience with Olav Arts and Taryn Weggelaar has definitely changed my life. They are not only loving, compassionate and thoughtful but also very professional, disciplined and knowledgeable.
During my stay i always had the feeling that our safety and well-being was of utmost importance and that helped create a safe environment to practise and grow - not only as a yoga teacher but also spiritualy.
My expectation was to pass my exam and walk out with my certificate but I left with much more.

"Amazing & life changing"
Perfect is the word that comes up if I look back at the YTT of Taryn and Olav. They are complementary to each other, so I got inspired by 2 wise & passionate teachers. In a great environment I learned about a broad variety of yoga (hatha, vinyasa, tantra yoga, meditation, pranayama, philosophy & anatomy).
Taryn & Olav both have beautiful hearts and you will definitely feel that. The program is an amazing set up to prepare you to feel ready as a yoga teacher and as bonus, it is life changing for your own personal grow as well!!
