About

Dawn is a meditation and yoga teacher with a playful and dynamic approach. She is known for her smiling personality and effective balance of clear, precise instruction and mental reflection. Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005 and teaching yoga since 2006. She has completed several programs of meditation studies from True North Insight (2-year teaching mentorship), and Spirit Rock Meditation Center (18-month Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training, 2-year Dedicated Practitioners' Program). She is also a meditation retreat teacher for adolescents with Inward Bound Meditation. Currently, Dawn is a student in Spirit Rock Meditation Center's four year Dharma Retreat Teacher Training

In 2007 she co-founded the Yoga Mala Foundation, a Montreal-based non-profit organization that supports the development of yoga programs in underserved communities. Dawn is also a board member for True North Insight, a charitable organization offering a full schedule of Buddhist Insight (Vipassana) meditation retreats and courses in English and French. 

Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the yoga mat and meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

- Henry David Thoreau -

Meditation

Countless studies have shown that mindfulness meditation decreases stress, lowers blood pressure, improves brain function and the immune system, enhances sleep, and increases tolerance for discomfort and pain. In addition to all these known benefits, it also makes you a better human being.

This may sound like a tall order, yet when you break down your seemingly one extended life into individual moments, choosing wisely and living with heart becomes more accessible.

With sustained practice, mindfulness meditation teaches you to see clearly the things you don't normally see because you're distracted, hiding, overlooking them, or running from them. When you slow down enough, the things you think matter - the superficial things - fall away, and what is revealed is how your mind functions, and how your heart responds.

This is what makes Dawn passionate about spreading the practice of mindfulness through yoga and meditation.

 

There are a few ways in which you can walk this path with Dawn:

You are the sky. Everything else - it's just the weather.
