Dawn Valasco first discovered yoga in 1998 when she attended a Hatha class. She has been doing a personal practice of combined aerobic dance and yoga since that time. Dawn sought out yoga as a means to help with a personal illness, and has been amazed at the power of yoga to heal mind, body, and spirit. She is also particularly interested in the connection between food and health.
Dawn has been a special education teacher for many years. She has worked with children and adults with learning disabilities and mild autism.
In order to deepen her knowledge of yoga, Dawn enrolled in the 200 Hour Teacher Training with Laurel Hodory in 2015.
Dawn loves being outdoors, especially hiking and gardening. She and her husband have been married for 30 years and have two wonderful, adult daughters.
