Gretchen is a truly exceptional yoga teacher and mentor! I am a regular student in her yoga classes, and have also had the privilege of participating in her teacher training and mentoring programs. Her kind and caring nature and supportive positivity inspires confidence and creates the perfect environment for learning, receiving, and asking questions. Her well-structured mentoring programs cover all of the important aspects of teaching to include the underlying guiding principles, meaningful sequencing, anatomy, modifications, assists, and guidance on how to hold space for students. After participating in her training programs, I felt completely prepared and ready to take everything I learned and put it into practice as a teacher. I am so thankful to have been a part of her teaching and training and would highly recommend Gretchen as a mentor!
Gretchen’s “Peace in the Pause” yoga retreat was a perfect mindful and intentional break from the everyday. She’s an extraordinary teacher, even (or maybe especially!) with those of us newer to yoga. With her guidance, moves and positions could be modified for all body types and flexibility levels. I very much appreciated that, as well has her calm, caring spirit which was evident in each class during the weekend. I’m already looking forward to next years retreat!
So grateful to have crossed paths with Gretchen. She is an amazing, inspirational, supportive person and yoga instructor.

About me

Gretchen Schutte began her wellness and yoga journey in 2006 when she started practicing yoga as a method of stress relief. As her practice grew, she knew she wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. Gretchen's education started with a Vinyasa Yoga training and grew to include Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. At the root of her classes are tools that help you navigate your day with more ease. Her intention is for you to take the movement, breath, and mindfulness you learn on the mat out into your life to navigate your day with a sense of calm.

My Inspiration

For over 17 years I sat at a desk, staring at a computer screen. Like you, I know the aches and pains that come with the demands of a corporate job.

After many years of living with the discomfort of desk life, I decided to find a way to bring my yoga practice into my cube. I was excited to find relief and relaxation using simple movement, breath, and mindfulness.

From this experiment comes Peace in the Pause. My goal is to make relief and relaxation accessible on a daily basis. Through simple

I love how Gretchen Schutte makes the practice accessible to everyone. She encourages us to honor what shows up in our minds and bodies on the mat and just notice what is without judgment. I also enjoy her sense of humor and usually end up laughing at least once during class which is a great stress reliever!
Gretchen is an incredible teacher and mentor. I was lucky enough to have Gretchen as both a yoga teacher for years and then as an instructor for my 200 hr teacher training program. She is so knowledgeable about everything yoga and she translates all of that knowledge into real life and makes it accessible to everyone. I have dealt with an injury over the last year that would have kept me from practicing yoga altogether, but she taught me private sessions weekly throughout my recovery and her patience and encouragement kept me practicing, improving and ultimately healing so that I am now able to be back in more frequent studio classes. I could not have gotten back without her. She also has an amazing gift for creating a relaxing space - her voice is very powerful and soothing. I often use her recorded Nidra to help fall asleep and have recommended it to countless friends and colleagues who struggle with sleep. I highly recommend Tulaprana Yoga + Wellness and Gretchen!
Gretchen Schutte has been incredibly helpful as a teacher, an instructor during my 200 and 300 hour training and as a mentor assisting me in finding my own voice as a teacher. She has taught me to appreciate the yin side of yoga, the pause we are all seeking. I truly appreciate her willingness to meet to discuss my teaching concerns and help me brainstorm solutions. She has been a mentor, resource and friend - I cannot thank her enough!
