PRESENTER

Lauren Buckles, E-RYT, RCYT, is a Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher for both youth and adults in the Hudson Valley. After practicing and teaching gymnastics to children for almost a decade, Lauren was initially attracted to the physical element of yoga. Now, the element of yoga that sustains her practice is the compassion and connection it has brought into her life. Lauren teaches kids Yoga & Creative Play at Ascend Festival’s home studio in Cold Spring. She specializes in teaching yoga in schools where shares mindfulness based practices with children and professional development for educators and administrators. Lauren teaches for and has trained extensively with both Little Flower Yoga and Katonah Yoga®.

In her classes, Lauren hopes her students will cultivate a compassionate relationship to themselves by being curious and paying attention to their experience. Lauren teaches activities that support social-emotional learning and a connection with community. Her intention is for her students to increase their capacity to self-regulate, and to enhance their ability to experience joy.

Exploring the Senses
In alignment with the second chakra theme, we will explore the development of our inherent right to feel. Kids (and families) will engage their senses and build joyful, compassionate connections. Practice will include playful and mindful movement, breathing activities and relaxation. Open to all ages!
