I was born in Wales, UK where I grew up with three older sisters. My working life has always consisted of working in a Corporate Finance role in the Public Sector (for over 30 years!!!). Nine years ago I suffered a major life changing event resulting in depression and anxiety. This event made me realise how precious life can be and how important it is to live life to the fullest and embrace new challenges and opportunities as they arise!!
Nearly three years ago I emigrated to Cleveland, Australia with my husband and three children. It was during our move I suffered with a bad back and visited an Osteopath. It was here that I heard about Pilates!!. My Osteopath suggested I try Pilates to strengthen my back (and I have never looked back!!!). Pilates definitely boosted my rehabilitation in terms of my back and also helped me deal with my anxiety and have a clearer mind. After each session my pain lessened and I began to feel pain free after a few sessions.
I attended Pilates classes many times a week and am pleased to say my back soon felt better, by this time I had the Pilates bug and continued to attend multiple classes frequently!! . I was taking part in 4 sessions a week, (so I got to know my body and its limits, what I should and should not be doing).
Now I have never felt stronger, I’m strong from the inside out, I have worked on protecting my body from future injury and it’s something I will always work on. I never want to be worried about my back again. Pilates also helped me discover self care and mindfulness. This passion has transferred into me wanting to help others discover the benefits I feel on a daily basis. Teaching people to care for themselves (mind and body!!) and not make the same mistakes as I did!One day I read about Pilates Instructor classes and I immediately signed up for these….. Suddenly I had found my new passion!!!! I have always loved being around “People”, I love meeting new people, hearing their stories and helping others.
Our move across the world inspired me to explore other avenues, taking on board my new found passion I decided to start instructing Pilates which I love .From my personal injury and life lessons I discovered Pilates and have created “New Dawn Pilates & Yoga” and our ethos is to improve your lifestyle through better self care, mindfulness and all round well being and fitness.
I also have a business coach/mentor who I have invested in heavily recently and she is helping me with my mindset and outlook on life. I am still working on myself and my body constantly so I can be the best I can for you. Not only have I been lucky enough to find a second passion that I can make a career out of but I get to work with amazing, motivated, committed people who are determined to increase their quality of life through Pilates. You never know you could be next.
Love Dawn x
