About Sheila

Sheila was in her early 30's before she finally learned to slow down (a bit!) through meditation and yoga. In 1996, she found her spiritual home in Shambhala Buddhism and a year later discovered in yoga a physical practice that beautifully complemented her meditation practice and Buddhist world-view. After losing her job during the high-tech meltdown, and with it the Nortel gym, Sheila made a commitment to make yoga her main physical practice. She was amazed to discover after 6 months that she had more energy, was stronger, healthier, happier, and even a few pounds lighter, than she ever had been before. In 2004 she took her practice further through classical yoga teacher training with Yogi Vishvketu. She has since studied Vinyasa Flow with Shiva Rea and Yin yoga with Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. After teaching yoga part-time for 3 years, in 2007 she made a further leap, leaving a 20 year corporate career to devote herself to bringing the joy of yoga to others through opening Windhorse Yoga studio. Sheila practices and teaches flow, yin, classical hatha yoga and yoga for children. She is a certified YogaEd instructor and delights in teaching playful yoga to children and families. She is also a certified meditation guide in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition and incorporates secular meditation into many of her classes. Her inquisitive and energetic teaching style helps her students discover their own natural mindfulness-awareness of body and mind. Sheila is registered with the Yoga Alliance as an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT).
