Sheila McVay, founder of Johns Creek Yoga

About The Teacher

Sheila is the owner and lead teacher at Johns Creek Yoga in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. She has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years.  In addition to daily classes, she leads Yoga Teacher Training at both the 200 and 500 level, and she hosts retreats both locally and internationally. Her life is an endless adventure, every day a new challenge, a new experience, a new joy, a new invitation to dive a little deeper. Her classes are focused on alignment and infused with spirit and soulful exploration of the body, but they are also light-hearted and fun. She relishes the playfulness of the practice and encourages her students to be fearless and attempt new things in a safe and supported atmosphere. As a former Professor of American literature, Sheila loves to explore the connections between philosophy, poetry, religion and yoga in her own life and in the way she guides her students. Sheila trained at Kripalu Yoga in MA, and has studied with many of the best teachers in the world.  She continues to take advantage of every opportunity to train and learn and will forever consider herself a student of this beautiful and ancient practice.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
