Gretchen felt a pull to yoga for its ability to nurture the body, mind, and spirit in a compassionate, loving way. She found her way to the Colorado Eldorado Mountain Ashram where she studied Shambhava Hatha Yoga and has been teaching since 2003. As a mother of two, Gretchen's yoga practice serves as a retreat from the day-to-day; an opportunity to indulge in self-care and self-love. Her classes encourage turning inward to allow your inner light to shine and your inner wisdom to guide. When we are in union with our natural state, we live a life of balance and harmony, free from negativity and dis-ease. She brings intention, passion, and big love to her yoga practice and encourages her students to do the same.
Gretchen Fellon instructs the following:
Ideal for those new to yoga. Build a solid foundation for a safe and joyful yoga practice.
Restorative yoga is designed to help relax and renew the body on many levels; the nervous system, emotional distress, physical tension, and more. Under the soft glow of candlelight to evoke the sacred, poses are supported by props while relaxing music is played and poetry is read to encourage introspection and relaxation.
