Kelly Fagan

As a special education teacher for many years, I always felt like my students needed more. I discovered the power of yoga after moving to Moore County in 2013. I instantly fell in love with the physical practice, the quiet and calm space, and positive energy. I began using yoga and mindfulness practices in the classroom setting and was blown away at the progress I was noticing in my students with disabilities. They were beginning to exhibit more confidence, social skills were improving, and language skills were developing. My students were becoming stronger both physically and mentally. As my students were gaining these skills, I was becoming a more patient, more mindful, less reactive teacher. For the first time, I felt like we were truly learning together, side-by-side.

As I observed yoga positively transforming lives in the classroom, my desire for this practice to become accessible to all children in the community was born and in 2015, I founded the Inclusive Yoga for Kids program. My passion for children and this practice has driven me to become a 200hr certified yoga instructor as well as a certified kids yoga & mindfulness teacher. I co-facilitate a kids yoga & mindfulness teacher training program with Be Still Kids, family workshops, and teach other mindful learning experiences in the community. I will spend my mornings as the Outdoor Enrichment Guide at The Garden Montessori during the 2017-2018 school year.

I am passionate about creating experiences where ALL children can learn together in a fun, safe, and gentle environment. I believe each and every person should be included and loved exactly as they are. My dream is that all members of our community become active participants, achieve their full potential, and let their inner light shine. I am excited to share my experiences and passions with you!
