Dawn taught vinyasa flow classes drawing primarily on Ashtanga and Power yoga traditions in studios in Ohio, North Carolina, and the Bay Area of California. In 2013, Dawn was first introduced to ashtanga in the Mysore tradition at Stanford University, when she began working with Russell Case, who served as director of Ashtanga at Stanford University at the time, and is a KPJAYI authorized level 2 teacher.
