Gretchen is a native New Yorker who lives each day passionately, vibrantly and full of life. She is devoted in helping others reduce stress and anxiety through yoga practice and believes yoga is a beautiful relationship built between the body, the mind, and the breath.
Her yoga journey began six years ago while strapped to an office desk. Focused on office administration and back-to-back meetings, she was stressed out! That's when she realized she needed an outlet and, thankfully, started taking yoga classes. After every class she began noticing changes in her lifestyle, mood and mindset. She began to grow stronger and more confident, not just physically but mentally too. She could feel harmony building into her everyday life. Suddenly, the hustle and bustle was no longer at the reins and every moment became more mindful then the next.
With continued practice, her understanding of Yoga philosophy deepened and she knew she wanted to share this gift with others and completed her 200-hour teacher training with Three Sisters Yoga in early 2017. She is well trained in vinyasa and hatha yoga styles and is deeply grateful for the wisdom her instructors have shared with her over the years. She is currently studying for her Group Fitness Certification with NASM/AAPT and regularly attends workshops and trainings on health and wellness.
As an enthusiastic Yoga and Group Fitness Instructor, she has the knowledge and drive to support her clients on their wellness journeys. Every class she teaches is uplifting and offers something for students at every level.
Gretchen knows how to push you and meet you exactly where you are at that point and time. My first class with her was the best thing ever. The atmosphere and the mood of the class is set from the time you walk in until the time you leave. I am finding my love for yoga again and it is all because of her.
Gretchen is a wonderful yoga instructor!!! She is knowledgeable, patient and kind. The energy she brings to the class is amazing!!! She is truly a blessing to all who meet her!!
