Lead Teacher & Creator of YAM Sessions

With a degree in Elementary Education and four years of experience teaching in public schools, Liesel discovered that the key to a successful class is a strong sense of community. After receiving her 200-hour yoga teacher certification, she knew that she wanted to share her knowledge of the body, the breath, and the mind with the next generation. Needless to say, she is beyond excited to create a space where kids can connect and learn social/emotional skills at YAM Sessions. Combining her love of piano, voice, yoga, and art, as well as her silly sense of humor, she's bound to make lasting memories with all of her students.


Assistant Teacher & Graphic Artist

When Gretchen was first approached by her sister Liesel to design the posters and fliers for YAM Sessions she didn't realize she'd soon be convinced to be an assistant teacher as well. While art and design are her true areas of expertise, she loves working with the YAM kids and looks forward to playing and learning with them each week.
