Dawn Barratt

Dawn Barratt has been teaching since 2003. Having studied several styles of yoga and taught students of all capabilities, her objective is to instil a thorough understanding of the postures and how the individual can integrate them into their unique body. 

Classes vary in theme such as, a particular area of the body, exploration of an asana (posture) or, concept. Classes may include balancing the body, strengthening, flexibility, vinyasa, balances, and inversions.  Breath awareness is emphasized as the foundation to enable ease in the asanas, cultivate mental clarity, and concentration.  Students are encouraged to question/comment during the class to aid comprehension as well as, safe practice.

Dawn strives to provide a class that is informative, developmental, fun, and promotes a relaxed, well-functioning body and focused mind.
