Hally Marlino, Trailblazer.

Meet Hally Marlino, Yoga and Aerial Yoga teacher at Madison Ballet and Inner Fire in Madison, Wisconsin. Hally grew up in the countryside by a riverbank. She earned a BA in Theatre Performance from UW- LaCrosse.  It’s Hally’s dream to have a home yoga studio in a barn, maybe even on the roof of a barn. She says she’s flexible. 

Hally has a different approach to practicing daily yoga and working on her body, mind and soul. She practices porch yoga every day and takes long walks through the rolling hills and backwoods of Wisconsin with her family. Her local Midwestern yoga teachers are the people who have made her feel thankful as they have shown her how to live and give.

Hally is a blue collar yoga teacher and believes that it is her duty on this healing path to provide accessible, affordable yoga for everybody. If you want to practice with her, come as you are. Three words: Beer. Cheese. Pranayama.

Tina Bock, Trailblazer.

Meet Tina Bock, one of our inspirational Trailblazers here at Cory Vines. For the time being, Tina works at Le Studio De Yoga Wanderlust in Montreal. Having grown up a dancer and an athlete, Tina has always appreciated and understood the full benefits from being active in your day-to-day life. She brought this same passion into her adult life when she spent 5 years as a fitness instructor for children. She then travelled to India in 2012 to complete her yoga teacher training where she studied Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Sivananda yoga at Bodhi Tree Yoga International. Tina has also received her 200-hr YTT Certificate. Ever since that trip, she has been teaching adults and children in New Jersey and Montreal. 

Tina practices yoga on a daily basis, and when she isn’t striking a pose, she is out in the fresh air going for a brisk run or a cycle. Fun fact? Tina is also a Music graduate from Ramapo College, and has been playing guitar and singing ever since she can remember. Avid traveler, yoga enthusiast and part-time mermaid, Tina is here to inspire and learn. Follow her and her community:
