Yoga is about incremental progress and recognising you are constantly evolving.
A yoga student of 18 years, Dawn founded The Yoga School in Singapore as a space to explore yoga in a safe environment. The Yoga School is an offering to anyone who is curious about yoga and passionate about learning. Guided by a global community of kind, knowledgeable and responsible teachers, Dawn hopes to share the immense benefits of yoga she has experienced herself. Her classes offer a gentle and invigorating practice, while building awareness of our mind-body-breath alignment.
Dawn took her first yoga class during her first year at university, and fell in love with the fact that, after years of compulsory Physical Education classes at school, she could finally exercise out of the sun. After graduating in 2002, she continued to seek out yoga classes in the different cities where she lived: from a grotty gym in Paris to a Mysore-style practice in Mountain View, California. Upon returning to Singapore in 2004, she volunteered as yoga captain for a local bank, organising weekly yoga classes for her colleagues.
In 2016, Dawn completed her 500-hour yoga teacher training with Noah Mazé. She covered 10 modules of teacher training in Los Angeles, Jakarta, Bali and Singapore. Her teachers Noah Mazé and Anthony Heron gave her the knowledge and courage to start teaching yoga and open The Yoga School. Dawn’s first teacher training was led by Andrey Lappa and Copper Crow in 2013. This 200-hour Universal Yoga training deepened her understanding of yoga beyond asana practice, and inspired her to continue studying yoga.
When not at a yoga studio, Dawn is most likely to be found with her dog Bei, either watching the latest Korean drama in bed, or exploring far-flung corners of Singapore together. Dawn is an adventurous traveller and a spa junkie, and loves experiencing new places and cultures.
