Gretchen Kontz

Gretchen is a dedicated and spirited 800-hour teacher bringing yoga to all practioners. She believes yoga is a lifelong companion allowing us to seek and peel away layers of our true self to live our lives with clear intention.

In 2011, Gretchen took her 200-hour teacher training at Elan Yoga, with an emphasis on vinyasa and hot. Shortly thereafter she began teaching Bikram style hot yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa classes.  Hungry to take her teaching and practice to the next level, Gretchen took a 300-hour level training with Gina Caputo and the Colorado School of Yoga in 2014.  This training launched Gretchen into strategically planning and implementing vinyasa flow classes.  Most recently, Gretchen took a second 300-hour training though Inner Peace Yoga Therapy in Colorado Springs.  Gretchen was able to dive deeper into the subtle body aspects of yoga and its therapeutic benefits.

Gretchen’s classes are prepared with a powerful balance of creativity and purpose. There is a strong focus on breathwork, alignment and discovering inner strength.

When Gretchen is not on her mat she is spending time with family and friends, making malas, or taking advantage of all the wonderful things Colorado life has to offer.
