Dawn’s goal is to make being healthy as fun and easy as possible. In 2003, after thirteen years of teaching everything from aqua aerobics to Zumba, Dawn opened Heron Creek Yoga Studio in her home. In January 2012 she and her husband opened the current location in Ancaster. In November she and George Jakymyshyn bought Hot Yoga Stoney Creek. She is grateful every day for her family and for the opportunity to share her passions--yoga and fitness-- with so many wonderful people. Dawn became an aerobics instructor in 1990, a personal trainer in 1991, a Lifestyle and Weight Management Instructor in 1996, a Pilates instructor in 2006, and a pre-natal yoga instructor in 2013. Before opening her own studio, Dawn taught fitness in Geneva, Switzerland, Santa Fe, NM, Boston, MA and for the former Town of Ancaster. She started taking Yoga classes in Boston in 1995. Her interest in Yoga grew out of her great enjoyment of meditation, and from recognizing how much traditional fitness had borrowed and adapted from Yoga. From there she began taking classes and reading extensively, eventually attending teacher training at Downward Dog Studio in Toronto in 2008. In 2013 Dawn added Ballet Barre to her repertoire, and was featured in The Hamilton Spectator. Later that year she was interviewed on Terra TV for Pre-Natal Yoga.
