NEXT Yoga Instructors

Opening our hearts through an asana creates an energy of gratitude.

Gretchen Daumen

Instructor / 200 RYT
Gretchen began practicing yoga in high school and found it was a great way to reduce stress from the pressures of school, extracurriculars and competitive sports. Later, when her career took her to new locations, yoga was the link to a like-minded community with a common appreciation for the benefits yoga has to offer. Gretchen’s goal is to enable her students to deepen their practice, step outside of their comfort zones and feel challenged, yet recharged by her class.
Gretchen works in sports medicine as a Clinical Athletic Trainer and completed her 200 RYT and Hot yoga certifications through NEXT yoga. When she isn’t on her mat, she loves reading, baking, and spending time with her husband.
