Meet the Inner Knowledge Team
Gretchen is the owner of Gretchen Robinson Yoga Studio and has been teaching yoga and mindfulness since 2001. She has worked and traveled over the past two decades, studying with top teachers from around the world.
Along with teaching yoga, philosophy, and mindfulness in the studio, she has worked with kids of all ages in schools and detention centers, witnessing first-hand the many stressors they face today, no matter their age or economic background, and the lack of tools available for them to respond, not react.
After spending decades in the schools with children and educators, she created Inner Knowledge, originally as a certification program for educators, administrative staff and professionals throughout the Kansas City area, and continues to expand it beyond schools to corporations and more.
She has trained athletes in yoga from professional, Olympic, NCAA to amateur, including football players, track stars, gymnasts, swimmers, divers, ballet dancers, and more.
Her passion is to serve and help humanity, strongly believing that the most impactful change of our generation will come through transforming youth.
Growing up in New York City housing authority, NaRon Tillman found himself always helping others as he coached sports and taught vocals, where he first made the connection between breath, movement, and sound. As a yoga and mindfulness teacher, he now uses the concepts of breathing and movement to transform the mind from a negative bias to a positive one.
NaRon now teaches yoga and mindfulness in marginalized schools in NYC. He also teaches these same concepts to individuals, and corporations, to help individuals/employees to relieve stress and enhance mental and physical well-being.
NaRon is a part of the Contemplative Alliance and has contributed to many mindful meditation forums. He currently sits on the board of Breathe, Move, Rest, serves as Director of Inner Knowledge, and is responsible for putting yoga in dozens of schools though out NYC.
