ABOUT OUR TEACHERS
With over 35 years of yoga and meditation experience, Sharon Manner, is the founder and creator of Ashrams for Autism. She embraces and shares the ultimate goal of yoga, which is to quiet the mind and find the peace within. Sharon credits her knowledge of yogic disciplines to Swami Satchidananda, Margabandhu Martarano, Swami Ramananda, Nischala Joy Devi, Mukunda Styles and many more. While running Samadhi Sun and Ashrams for Autism, Sharon still finds time to teach at The Integral Yoga Institute (NYC and Fairlawn), the Center for Independence at TCI, The Union County Department of the Disabled, and Morristown Beard High School.
Hannah was drawn to the healing powers of Yoga in her early 20’s. With a regular yoga practice over the course of a couple years, she noticed a stronger connection to her spiritual, emotional and physical body and wanted to learn more.
Which led her to a 200 HR RYT under the Teachings of Sharon Manner, founder of Samadhi Sun Yoga School and Ashrams for Autism. Deepening her practice through this training, Hannah realized how beneficial Yoga can be for any body type, age, physical/ mental ability and so on. During this period she learned more about Sharon’s Non-Profit teaching yoga for individuals with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and wanted to get involved.
Following completion of her 200 HR YTT certification, Hannah took the Samadhi Spectrum continuing education 50 HR course. Hannah has been a proud yoga teacher for Ashrams for Autism since July of 2016 and plans to continue spreading her knowledge of yoga from her heart with kindness and compassion for all beings.
