Meet the Teachers
A series of life events, paired with a lingering dissatisfaction in her chosen profession at the time, led Sheila to the path of yoga and meditation. Unbeknownst to her, this path would slowly elicit healing, a sense of deepening connection to her roots, and her dharma (heart’s purpose) in life. Most dear to Sheila’s heart is the practice of meditation and yoga nidra. She is grateful to her teachers for illuminating this path, and today it is her heart’s calling to support others along this journey as well.
In classes, Sheila intends to hold a welcoming space for individuals of all backgrounds and experience. Her offerings are trauma informed, and body and practitioner centered. She invites the student to explore what is most true for them, combining movement, breath and meditation as a way to come home to themselves, and be in relationship with life circumstances. She believes that the body holds life affirming wisdom, and is a vessel through which we can experience our humanity and our wholeness. While emphasis rests on the first hand experience of the student, over time classes will include education around the nervous system, yogic and non-dual philosophy, and elements of practice as tools for life. It brings Sheila great joy to share with others, and to create a sense of community and belonging.
Her yoga takes place on the cushion, and in great part in the daily movements of life and motherhood. The next leg of her journey continues as she immerses in Somatic Experiencing™ training, and begins graduate school to be a mental health therapist. Sheila is excited to widen her breadth of skill, knowledge and Knowing so that she may continue supporting others to uncover their sense of vitality, resilience and humanity.
