Sharyn Tullar is a graduate of the YogaLife Institute’s 200-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training program and is certified with the Yoga Alliance. YogaLife’s teachings of the 8-fold path opened up a new perspective that Yoga is so much more than just physical poses. Sharyn is interested in a steady and comfortable practice, moving meditations, and incorporating ongoing scientific research discoveries that help us understand the connections between the body and brain. Realizing that simple repetitive movements in tandem with awareness of the breath and an intention of mindfulness and acceptance produce real life results to help relieve everyday suffering. Patience, gentleness and a sense of humor are qualities that Sharyn tries to tap into while incorporating the techniques of yoga into her day. She continues to be curious about life, widening her perspective, and accepting that change is part of moving forward while cultivating an uncluttered mind that encourages more creativity, more clarity and more peace.

She initially started her practice to help her relieve some of the stress and symptoms of pregnancy, and continued as it also helped alleviate the pressures of being a first time mom. She stayed with the practice knowing that the calmness she felt would only help with everyday pressures, finding great freedom in the ability to change her perspective when necessary to help minimize any suffering she was feeling. She is thankful to feel grounded as well as enlightened with a greater awareness of the mind, body, and spirit connection. She also appreciates the physical benefits of strength and flexibility.
She continues to grow and learn, as she values finding her own inner wisdom and the great amount of healing that she’s experienced through yoga. This was how she made the decision to help educate others with what she’s learned from the practice. In today’s fast paced world, the ability to just ‘be’ as your true self, is certainly something worth exploring. Dalyne also studies modern dance, and has much interest in nutrition and holistic wellness.
Haley Marie Walker's relationship with yoga began at a very young age and has strengthened over the last decade. Her introduction began with Bikram and over the years her desire to be challenged more mentally and emotionally lead her to practice and teach Vinyasa classes in Florida and Michigan. As an adventuring spirit, she has traveled to and lived in several different regions of the United States and the world. However, while change has been a frequent theme of her teens and early-20s, dedication to the practice and philosophy of yoga has been a constant. In September 2011, Haley moved to New Hampshire to enroll in the YogaLife Institute's Teacher Training Program. Having had the opportunity to deeply engage in a variety of yoga traditions, Haley offers a diverse knowledge base both physically and philosophically. With each class, she seeks to offer yoga as a grounding reprieve to people of all ages and abilities, giving an experience filled with peace, grace and strength.
An excerpt from Haley's graduation speech from the YogaLife Institute: I have lived in five different states or countries in the last five years. I have graduated from two different academic programs and now one yoga program. I have lost several of the most important relationships of my life.
