Sheila is an ERYT 500 certified teacher who has been practicing and teaching for many years. She is the founder of both Johns Creek Yoga and Duluth Yoga and relishes the opportunity to share the practice that has so powerfully transformed her life with as many people as she can. She completed her 200 hour training at Peachtree Yoga in Sandy Springs, Georgia and her 500 hour at Kripalu Yoga Center in Massachusetts. She holds additional certifications in Yin Yoga and Thai Yoga Bodywork. In addition to daily classes at both studios, she facilitates Yoga Teacher Training and offers retreats and workshops both locally and internationally. As a former Professor of American literature, Sheila loves to explore the intersection between philosophy, poetry, religion, nature and yoga and often brings that synthesis into her classes.

I had never stepped into a Yoga class before late August of this year! My insecurity immediately disappeared as I experienced such a friendly community of Yogies! The instructors are awesome and do a great job of making sure we all have correct posture. I love that I have choices of class times to suit my schedule on a daily basis! So thankful for Johns Creek Yoga Studio!
