Devoted practitioner, passionate about being authentic and living in alignment. Life long learner and attempting to see the humour wherever possible.
Dawn's yoga journey began at the age of 15, though her background and people around her at that time yoga and spirituality were never something that was really encouraged, however she felt a massive calling to it. Finding a video tape for yoga she practiced consistently with it for 2 years. Until a few lifestyle choices back then meant that yoga edged out of her life till the age of 25.
It had always been in the back of her mind the huge benefits she felt as a teenager through yoga, it was no coincidence the practice found its way back into her life. At first when she began practicing again it was purely in the physical form, however quite quickly the amazing mental benefits crept in and began to help with the often toxic environments of working in nightclubs. It wasn't long before she was hooked on the life changing practice and knew that eventually she wanted to teach. Since then she has been a passionate and dedicated student to yoga in its many forms.
In 2011 she completed her first 200 hour Teacher Training with Frog Lotus International and has since when on to assist at these trainings. Other teacher trainings since then include:
Yoga for Athletes 25 hours - Fiona Leard, Australia
Limitless - Duncan Peak, Australia
Bio-mechanics of the hip 25 hour - Tiffany Cruickshank Yoga Medicine
2 day Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers - Jambo Truong
3 day Tantra Vinyasa - Sianna Sherman
Bhakti Prana Vinyasa 32 hours - Shiva Rea
5 day Teaching Yoga in Prison - The Prison Phoenix Trust
Forrest Yoga, continuing education for teachers 35 hours - Jambo Truong
She has also completed many more workshops from some of the great and inspiring teachers known worldwide today: Maty Ezraty, Natasha Rizopolous, David Swenson, Simon Park, Dana Flynn, Les Leventhal, Ana Forrest and an Indian pilgrimage studying Bhakti Yoga with Raghunath Cappo.
Dawn strives to create a safe space for you to gain a deeper understanding of your body and your attitudes as you do this. Encouraging the journey of getting to know yourself better. She teaches an ever evolving style of yoga influenced by the many teachers she has trained with. Mobility and strength with long holds and dynamic movement but with her holding the space to turn it into a moving meditation.
A big part of Dawn's work and a true passion for her is bringing yoga to the wider community. Teaching people in addiction recovery, troubled youths and in prisons. She knows how powerful these practices can be for transformation.
