Cheri Butler came to YogaLife's 200-hr Training Program with a background in Buddhist philosophy studies as well as Vinyasa and Iyengar asanas (postures). Classical Yoga has proven to be home for this aspiring yogini. The practice of Yoga is not painful or arduous. Yoga is unity. Classical Yoga is a nurturing, loving kindness philosophy of movement, breath and meditation, accessible to everyone. Determination, clarity and diligence have given Cheri a renewed balance of mind, body and spirit. She strives to provide a space for all to tap into their own wholeness and harmony. Classical Yoga has morphed Cheri?s practice into freedom and lightness. This freedom and lightness is what she plans to show others through daily living, service, practice and community.

Dr. Carey S. Clark is a graduate of the YogaLife Institute's 200-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training programs. Carey became interested in classical yoga after reading Dr. Butera's work and realizing that they both had attended the California Institute of Integral Studies for their doctoral degrees. Carey is a registered nurse and reiki master, and one of her main motivators for becoming certified as a yoga instructor was to be able to teach yoga and healing with her nursing students at University of Maine at Augusta. Carey has designed a yoga curriculum for BSN nursing students that includes weekly experiences with classical yoga and meditation, and academic work for the course is completed online. Carey is striving to work as a consultant to bring yoga as a healing therapy and self-care modality into more schools of nursing and healthcare settings.
