Embrace in Schools

Research indicates that adolescents with higher body satisfaction are more likely to engage in healthy eating and exercise, and are less likely to be overweight, smoke, and consume alcohol and illicit drugs.  Wouldn’t we want this for all our children?

Our mission is to educate kids to embrace their bodies and love who they are, both inside and out.  With close to a hundred school speaking visits under her belt, Taryn knows how to connect with her audience, both males and females, receptions to Year 12’s.  Her ability to connect intrinsically and tap into her own personal journey leaves a lasting impression on students.

In addition to her school talks, Taryn also presents her ‘Developing Daughters, Supporting Sons’ seminar – a talk for parents focused on how to encourage a body-positive environment at home. Download the speaking kit below for more information.

A Message for Teachers!

I’m delighted you’re here reading this page and excited that we can hopefully work together – the best part of my job is the time I spend in schools inspiring kids to move, nourish, respect, and enjoy their bodies.

It’s shocking to hear that 70% of children consider body image to be their number one concern, it was never meant to be this way – we weren’t born into the world hating our bodies.  It’s time to get kids back on track, so let’s change this together!

I work with schools to ensure my message of body positivity makes a lasting impact. From reading my children’s book ‘Embrace Your Body’ to early primary students to talking to Year 10 students about my personal journey and how polite persistence wears down resistance!  I will deliver a talk that will invoke change and help students to understand that their bodies are not ornaments in life, but rather the vehicles to their dreams.

With love,
