Yogini Gretchen Cline of Third Coast Yoga has been an educator for most of her professional career, which spans almost 30 years. In fact, part of her ascribed spiritual name, Gurubanda Kaur, means "teacher, transforming wisdom". The rest means "locked or strong foundation" and "the lioness who walks in beauty".
"I love creating curriculum, classes," said Cline, an English, Women's Studies and PE Yoga instructor at Muskegon Community College (MCC). "My first Hatha Yoga training in Traverse City synthesized many of my interests and passions—psychology, creative things, literature, yogic philosophy and how all of that relates to well-being and self transformation. It was the perfect place for me. I kept that in the back of my mind."
One decade later, she realized that merging her love of yoga with her love of teaching was her life-long dream, or in yogic terms—her Dharma or her life's purpose—and began the process to become a teacher trainer (a "teacher of teachers") of Yoga, specifically Hatha Level I Teacher Training, the very same course that inspired her years ago.
