Hi there – I’m Gretchen

I teach an awareness based yoga practice, focused on building strength and mobility. 

Together we can find the yoga that best benefits you and helps you feel good in your body and mind.

You can practice with me every week at 3 Bridges Yoga or Yoga on York.

I also run a variety of workshops  & special classes every month.

You can also practice with me at my home studio where the classes are more customized to your needs.

I hold weekly small group classes and privates, semi privates, and family sessions.

We were all given this gift of a human body and mind but with no owners manual.

It’s up to us to figure out how best to care for ourselves, and yoga can be a great tool.

Keep in touch!

Stretching Your Hamstrings: What You Need to Know

Stretching Your Hamstrings: What You Need to Know

The hamstrings are a pretty well known muscle. There are so many yoga articles about stretching your hamstrings. If I was wittier I’d be able to come up with some joke about them having a good publicist, but I’m not. So I’ll just say that people tend to know where the hamstring muscles are.

Probably because of their really good publicist.

You can thank A for that joke. He’s the funny one in the house.

Seriously though … most people seem to have some awareness of where the hamstring is located. But what people don’t know is what the muscle actually does.
