Lauren

Local girl, born and raised in Belmont, NC Lauren went to
Appalachian State University in Boone and obtained a Bachelors
Degree in Elementary Education in 2009. She's been teaching 5th
grade for 8 years at Kiser Elementary in Stanley. A lover of the
outdoors, Lauren enjoys paddle boarding, backpacking, live music,
and working with children. You can find her either teaching them,
coaching them in Girls on the Run, or “white watering” with them in
the summer at the US National Whitewater Center.
"I started my yoga journey 5 years ago, Yoga literally was my
saving grace. I was struggling and needed some way to get out of my
own head. Yoga was a place of balance and grounding. It helped me
to build back my confidence and helped me in the path to discover
who I am. As a teacher, I see kids struggle daily, in so many
aspects of their life. They just want to be heard, and to be
noticed. Introducing yoga to kids is my way of giving back a small
part of what yoga has done for me and showing kids that yoga can
change you; physically and mentally. That this space is a place of
peace and they can leave any of that negativity or stress they've
felt through out the day on their mat. “You are enough! i am good,
I am are kind, I am strong, I am brave.” We repeat that at the end
of every class. Kids need reassurances not themselves. You just
never know what they've experienced in a day. They, like myself,
need to know that they have the power and strength to accomplish
anything in their life. That is why I teach.
