Sheila O’Grady has worked in the medical field for many years as a clinical microbiologist. Her love of yoga, with its physical and emotional benefits drew her to a second career in 2008, teaching hatha yoga.
Sheila had seen the effects of chemotherapy on a loved one and this drew her to Laura Kupperman’s Yoga for Survivors Internship program. In 2012, she received her certification specializing in yoga for cancer survivors.
She has been inspired by the strength, resilience and spirit she has seen in her work with cancer survivors.
Sheila competed Level 1 Yoga Therapy training from Inner Peace Yoga in 2017.
She began teaching to stroke survivors soon after and has again been impressed by the fortitude, outlook and resilience in this group of survivors.
