About Dawn

Dawn has worked in the wellbeing world for 27 years.  As a yoga teacher, mindfulness teacher, counsellor, mentor, cranial sacral therapist and retreat leader, speaker and blogger/writer.

Her belief is that we all have the capacity to experience happiness, inner peace and a sense of connectedness.  That rather than seeing the challenges that life offers as obstacles which get in the way of our inherent state of peace and happiness, those experiences instead can act as an entry point to a greater understanding, wisdom, self-awareness and self-compassion.

Dawn's approach is dynamic and integrative, steeped in mindfulness, compassion and kindness.  She believes that by pointing the way back to your direct experience your life acts as your greatest teacher and friend.

After all we are here to live, to love, to learn, to contribute, to express, to make connections. The practises Dawn offers help you to walk more lightly, and with greater understanding and compassion through your life moment to moment.


After 27 years of bringing up children, running two businesses, and mostly recently recovering from Covid, slowly, Dawn has decided to take time out for herself, to truly walk her talk.  She is no longer available for one to one sessions as she steps out of treatment work to recharge, and reflect and write.

During this time Dawn will still be offering some classes, workshops and retreats at her Studio Anahata, and will finally be completing her first book "She Who Roared."

Life is your practise, we do not practise to escape life we practise to find the sweetness and love within it.
