Hi, I'm Gretchen Schock

What do all those letters mean after my name?
I am an Experienced Registered Yoga Instructor at the highest level, which is 500. I am also a Registered Children's Yoga Instructor, Yoga Alliance Continued Education Provider, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Pilates Instructor, and Certified Life Coach.
I believe in fostering a safe and nurturing environment for students, of all levels, to explore their yoga practice. I prefer to connect with students on a personal level, teaching from a place of authenticity. You can often hear me sharing the knowledge that I’ve gained from overcoming my addiction to alcohol (10 years sober), parenting a child with special needs on the Autism Spectrum, or dealing with the diagnosis of having a rare breast tumor that resulted in a partial mastectomy. I also incorporate the yoga principles; of non-harming, mindfulness, meditation, and self-care into my coaching practice and life. I encourage students to sit in the seat of observation within themselves to learn how to listen to that voice of truth that resides within.
I opened my boutique yoga studio, Bee Yoga Fusion, in 2009 in the “new deal” town of Greenbelt, MD. We have online and virtual classes that are accessible to all levels of fitness abilities. Let's get started, I'm so glad you are here!
