Margaret Grado

CERTIFIED 500 RYT

A recently-retired middle- and high school history teacher, Margaret is focusing her talents now in two areas: her Indigo students and the veteran community.

An Army veteran herself, she has taught homeless veterans and is currently involved at Valor Ranch in Decatur where she volunteers to teach yoga to female vets and first responders. She holds certificates in trauma-informed yoga from several programs including Mindful Yoga Therapy, Unbreakable (a Baptiste program), Veterans Yoga Project and Warriors at Ease. She also volunteers with Warrior Spirit Project which offers free in-person and on-line classes to all active-duty military, veterans and first responders in the DFW area.

A former 12-year competitive swimmer who has just started swimming again, Margaret has always been active physically. Margaret’s other major interest is her four grandchildren who live in Midland. She also likes attending TCU football and basketball games as well as hanging out with her two cats, Barnaby and Shanti (previously of Indigo fame!). Though hip replacement surgery in 2019 and shoulder surgery in 2021 slowed her down a bit, she thinks one is never too old to dream a new dream or set a new goal.
