About Gretchen Cline

Gretchen Cline, Ph.D., E-RYT, is the owner and lead teacher of Third Coast Yoga Studio and the Third Coast Yoga Level I Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program.  A certified Yoga Therapist, she has studied yoga, meditation, Ayurveda and healing in depth through Hatha Yoga, Integrative Yoga Therapy, and 3HO International Kundalini Yoga programs.  She completed her 500-hour level II in 3HO International Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan in 2011. 

Gretchen has taught hundreds of classes and workshops to a wide range of students—from children to seniors to athletes to chemotherapy patients—and is committed to using yoga to help students in their recovery from addictions, and has taught yoga to troubled teens in the Ottawa County Juvenile Detention Center in West Michigan.

She has experienced many Hatha Yoga forms, including Iyenger, Yin, Kripalu, Astanga, Anusara, Svaroopa, and Viniyoga.  She has also taken workshops and teacher trainings from such yoga visionaries as Sean Corn, Gurucharan Singh Khalsa, Joseph and Lilian LePage, Pritpal Kaur Khalsa, Shakta Kaur, Ravi Singh, John Friend, Rama Berch, Sandy Carden, Paul Grilley, Gary Kraftsow, Scott Blossom, and many more.

Oil painting is also an important part of her own healing journey.

Her yoga therapy sessions and classes guide students through an experience of physical and psychological release so that they can know the delight and therapeutic well-being of this 5000+ year-old practice.  Any BODY can experience yoga’s benefits of self-healing, self-expression, self-acceptance, and self-transformation.

“My yoga practice has become increasingly important for my spiritual, emotional, and especially creative being.  It helps me stay connected to the present and equips me with the strength to express and work through issues buried deep in my heart.  Yoga is the medicine that helps me experience and recognize my creative energy as the survival of my Being.”

Yoga sings through the body, awakening consciousness of the life force that flows through the breath.
