She was an Elementary teacher at East Woods School in Oyster Bay, NY and Twin Pines Elementary School in Brentwood, NY. Dawn was initially drawn to yoga for the physical benefits after the birth of her first child. The connection to mind, body and spirit became stronger the more she practiced yoga both on and off the mat. Dawn soon noticed the transforming affects yoga had in her personal life. Dawn decided she wanted to share this transformational effect of yoga with others and became a registered yoga teacher.
