Dawn Lister is a Cranial Sacral Therapist, Massage Therapist, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Hatha Yoga Teacher and Mindfulness teacher.
Dawn has worked in the field of complementary therapies for 28 years beginning her career teaching yoga before expanding her expertise to include other therapies as her interest in finding ways to support her own and her clients well being in non traditional ways grew.
She is a firm believer in the power of the connection, the need we all have to feel heard and seen. Lack of connection has been shown to be one of the main causes behind many of the mental health conditions we see growing rapidly in our communities. And hope to offer a space that allows for the mind and body to find ways that feel safe and respectful in order to process, and then integrate the traumas and challenges, both mental and physical we may be living with.
Trauma doesn't live in the mind, you can't talk or think your way out of it. As fully fleshed out three dimensional human beings we need to work with our feelings, not just our thoughts. Literally bringing our awareness to the ways in which we hold our stress, anxiety, fear, and other challenging emotions in our tissues. Using techniques found in yoga, cranial sacral therapy, mindfulness and massage, this approach is gentle and nurturing, meeting you where you are right now.
This approach honed over decades of personal therapy, and learning, has meant that Dawn is a highly sought after therapist both face to face and now thanks to Zoom across the world.
You can work with Dawn 1-1, in a workshop group, class, or on retreat.
Dawn is co-founder of the Anahata Yoga Centre and teaches regular yoga and meditation classes as well as running day, weekend and full week retreats in the UK and Italy.
She is co-host of From The Heart a podcast about Yoga, Spirituality, Kindness and Fierce Compassion.
She is co founder and co host of The Living With Kindness online Conference and a regular guest on podcasts discussing the power of the voice, feeling heard, the role of women as the healers of the future.
