Gretchen Folk has cherished the practice of asana since just about the first time she was on a borrowed mat in a cramped bedroom following a VHS tape in January 2000.
Through exploring yoga and developing a deeper awareness of the whole practice, she was able to find consistency and stability in a sometimes geographically widespread life. She thanks all the fellow students she has practiced amongst in all the corners of the country she has visited. Some of the most influential of those have been the Haines Yoga Club in Haines AK, time with Mount Madonna Center in Watsonville CA and the amazing yogis of Boston and the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts.
She completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training with Prana Power Yoga, in Cambridge, MA in 2007. Leading classes since then, she constantly strives to provide a mindful and breath centered practice while sharing an attitude of lightness with her fellow practitioners.
Recently moving to Maine, she is pleased to be a member of South Portland’s own Greener Postures Yoga community.
