She started teaching classes at MidCoast hospital for employees in January 2001 and continues to teach at the hospital. Sharon has been a member of the Kripalu Yoga teachers Association (KYTA) since 2000. She has attended yearly KYTA teacher conferences and workshops on teaching methodology, techniques, anatomy and physiology, philosophy and lifestyle.

Sharon's experience as a cardiac rehabilitation nurse underscores her teaching, that the more we practice relaxation the greater the benefits to body, mind, and spirit.

Tamara Dolloff

Tamara is a graduate of Wicked Good Yoga's 200 hour Vinyasa teacher training. Tamara is also a Registered Nurse and has extensive experience in the field of health and wellness. Tamara’s journey into yoga began over 10 years ago. She discovered that yoga was the one thing that provided relief from debilitating chronic pain resulting from three back surgeries, including a spinal fusion. She found yoga helped heal the disconnect between her mind and body. However, a few years later, a failed chiropractic “adjustment” resulted in unbearable hip and back pain. It turned out to be a torn Labrum and over the course of three years, two additional surgeries were needed to reconstruct her hip joint. Tamara would not give up. Through her dedication to daily yoga practice and continuous search for knowledge of how to heal her body, she was able to regain most of what had been lost. Yoga has taught her that suffering is optional and her own path to healing has inspired her to lead others on their path into well-being. Tamara’s teaching includes a variety of classes including; Baptiste Vinyasa Flow, Slow Flow, and YIN. Through the use of intelligent sequencing and proper alignment, she is able to adapt yoga for individual needs. Tamara is passionate about working with people to find a balance between effort and ease. Her caring and supportive manner makes her class a safe place to start your journey and deepen your yoga practice. Tamara was born and raised in Boothbay Harbor. She now lives in Newcastle, with her husband and two teenage sons.
Kripalu is a gentle hatha yoga practice with a compassionate approach and emphasis on meditation, physical healing and spiritual transformation that overflows into daily life. In a Kriplau class, each student learns to find their own level of practice on a given day by looking inward. The classes usually begin with breathing exercises and gentle stretches followed by a series of individual poses and final relaxation. At the end of class, Kripalu teachers say jai bhagwan instead of namaste. The two terms have essentially the same meaning, but the former is in Hindi and the latter in Sanskrit.
