Dawn was first attracted to yoga at a Campbell River local gym in 2001. Yoga was transformational for her. Dawn met and studied with Josey Slater for 2 years. Since finishing her initial training she has enjoyed the teachings of therapeutic yoga with Susi Hately, Vijnana yoga and Tensegrity series with Elizabeth Claire Burr.
Dawn feels yoga has brought her to a calmer place when off her mat especially during challenging times. Yin and Restorative Yoga, both still and meditative practices, inspired Dawn to study with Bernie Clark and Judith Lasater.
Dawn recently completed the Essential Low Back Program training with Robin Rothenberg, and will be offering the series to help people get out of pain using the principles of yoga
Dawn also currently works as a registered nurse and lactation consultant. Studying with prenatal yoga teachers Janice Clarfield & Anna Colin have helped her grow & become very passionate about teaching yoga to women during pregnancy and beyond.
Connecting with the breath and feeling the body unwind is what draws Dawn to her own practice and being able to share that with others is such an honor.
“Yoga is an awakening of all the layers (koshas)of the body that brings us into our heart."
