My body is not an ornament, it is the vehicle to my dreams. - Taryn Brumfitt

I developed an unhealthy relationship with my body at a very young age. My own insecurities, combined with the pressures of competitive sports, my peers and my superiors, I thought the most important thing in my life was the size of my body. I also developed a bad case of codependency. When I got into recovery I realized how much respect and love I had for others, and how little I had for myself. I grew to love appreciate my body for what it could do, not how it looked. Today, I fully embrace myself – I am a vocalist, sound healing practitioner, and certified recovery coach. I love all that I am and all that I do! I am inspired by the body image movement and grateful to all the women and men who courageously say yes to body loving!
