Raised by a family of coaches, educators, and meditators, Sheila is a lifelong athlete and spiritual seeker. She is passionate about the field of health and fitness as it relates to personal well-being and finds great joy in teaching and working with people of all ages and physical abilities.
She began studying yoga in 2008 in the Vinyasa and Anusara traditions and quickly fell in love with the practice as a beautiful marriage of kinesthetic movement and spiritual depth. She completed her 200-hour teaching certification in July of 2014 with Amy Ippoliti and 90 Monkeys Studio in Boulder, Colorado. A Transcendental Meditation practitioner since the age of 10, Sheila continues her spiritual study of the history and tradition of yoga as a student of Rajanaka philosophy and the Sanskrit language with Dr. Douglas Brooks.
Sheila looks forward to a life of service and study in the field of holistic health and wellness and brings a deep passion to everything that she teaches. She is thrilled to begin this new chapter of her yoga journey in her hometown of Fairfield, Iowa, and very much hopes to see you on the mat soon :)
