Here's what one participant had to say:
"Thank you so much, Gretchen and John, for all the support this past 6 weeks during Goorus's yoga challenge. I learned so much about yoga, stamina, the importance of pacing, listening to my body and mind, and being able to attend many different types of yoga classes was invaluable. I met many people I would not have met without the challenge and the Goorus community is rich with compassion, humor, and love.

Your support week to week helped so much to stay motivated and to keep things fun! Thank you for launching the idea and for keeping up with the numbers. I feel better for it all both physically and emotionally and will continue to take care of myself at Goorus.

See you very soon and know that I am so grateful to have access to your yoga studio and I will continue to spread the word to anyone who will listen. Yoga is life."

Gretchen Lightfoot

A Yoga Alliance RYT-500, Gretchen trained with Carmen Fitzgibbon, Thomas Taubman, and Gigi Snyder of YogaWorks in Los Angeles. Gretchen’s teaching experience includes YogaWorks, Neutrogena, Fancy Feet Dance Studio, the Palisades Library, the Palisades Rec Center, and one-on-one work with a number of private clients throughout LA.

Gretchen’s classes vary in style. Her weekday morning classes run from a balanced, all-level flow to a chilled-out yin practice, to an Iyengar-style wall practice. Sunday morning flow tends to be a little more energetic (expect music). Regardless of the style, Gretchen encourages practitioners to listen to their bodies and modify where needed.
