Meet Alane and Laura
Alane has kept her 40 lb weight loss off since 2013, and created BurgerFit and Cooking with My Friends as a way to get her family eating better. Her health journey started in 2012 after being diagnosed with high blood pressure and obesity. Frustrated and determined, Alane decided to make small, sustainable changes in her diet so that it would be maintainable for a lifetime. Now Alane maintains a healthy weight range and has incorporated quick and easy recipes that keep her picky family members eating better!
I am an imperfect mother to two amazing humans, a supportive wife since 2006, a loyal sister, a resilient daughter, a mindful yogini, a devoted teacher, an advocate for peace, a lover of change, and a forever student. I have my masters degree in Education and was a classroom teacher for 9 years. My love of teaching children has now combined with my love of yoga. I am a registered yoga teacher, obtaining my 200 hour certification in April of 2014 and my Prenatal Yoga certification in January 2015 from Sanctuary Yoga Studio in Nashville, TN. I have a variety of training in children's yoga and development from The Asheville Yoga Center, Cosmic Kids Campus, and Kidding Around Yoga. Kidding Around Yoga is the style of yoga I teach everyday to kids that walk through the studio doors, and to the kids I travel to. Kidding Around Yoga "didn't invent kids yoga, they just perfected it". I am always looking for more ways to learn and improve my knowledge of yoga. I have been teaching adult and children's yoga for over six years.
How We Met
When I was pregnant with Fletcher, I was incredibly sick at all times during the day, not just “morning sickness”. I wasn’t able to work out like I normally did pre-pregnancy. I had to find something gentle but still kept me moving. I saw a flyer when I was three months pregnant for a maternity yoga workshop at Synergy and Laura Burgin was teaching it. This was going way out of my comfort zone. I had never enjoyed doing yoga and I am not one to go to a workout class without knowing anyone but I was desperate! After the workshop, it was the first time I felt relief from being pregnant and I truly enjoyed the class. I asked her if I could continue doing yoga with her through private lessons. After a few months of private classes with her, my husband started doing them with me! After Fletcher was born, we continued doing the private lessons with Laura and Fletcher joined in with us. Now Fletcher is a yoga loving kid and continues to do Sprouting Yogis with Laura.
