Dawn is the Consultant Tutor for the Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion (IMC) Qualification at Anahata, The Heart of Therapies, Yoga Studio In Leigh on Sea, Essex.
Dawn has been in the wellbeing world for 27 years.
She first encountered yoga and meditation in her home town of Edinburgh in her late teens, she became involved with Buddhism and found the mindfulness-based practises helped her cope with life's challenges, at the same time bringing more fun and pleasure to life.
Dawn was later asked to teach for the Buddhist school she was a student of and along with her secular teaching of mindfulness, meditation and yoga she taught groups, courses, retreats, in businesses, banks, social services and schools within her community.Dawn is also a trained yoga teacher and practices the disciplines of Cranial Sacral Therapy and massage, and owner of Anahata.
Mindfulness and Compassion is at the heart of everything Dawn offers. She has led retreats for 23 years, both in the UK and abroad, favouring her second home of Italy, and the wonderful In Sabina Yoga Retreat for its warmth, stillness and peace. Dawn is a mother of three, stepmother of three more, grandmother of two and a perpetual student saying, “ Life is always showing us ways to grow, love more and learn.” When she isn’t working, being a mother, studying she can be found in her local woods or garden, making time to connect with the environment. Dawn is working on her first book, A Mindful Life and is excited to be part of the MindfulnessUK team.
