This was the most amazing experience of my life. My teachers inspired me to be better. Through Dawn’s guidance, I feel that I’m able to inspire others to do the same. - Sean

Dawn was an excellent, very educated and knowledgable teacher throughout my 200-hour training. A few years prior to taking the course, I joined Peaceful Warrior Yoga Center, and Dawn's expertise and love of yoga is the main reason I wanted to become a teacher. I highly recommend this studio. Namaste! - Jackie

Peaceful Warrior RYT is very well rounded and draws upon the experience of several top tier teachers from a variety of backgrounds. The curriculum was intensive and at the same time the energy and environment was light. I felt I had the grounding to begin my own teaching experience with confidence and had network to rely on. - Jessica

Teacher training at Peaceful Warrior with Dawn truly got me ready to be a yoga teacher. I learned so much about all the parts of yoga not just the poses. The teacher training here allowed me to learn from other but grow as an individual as well. I felt that this teacher training was very well rounded and very helpful to improve my own practice while allowing me to now help others with theirs. The training also had a great balance of pushing me to be my best self but also allowing to enjoy the process and never feel incapable of overwhelmed. - Courtney

My training at Peaceful Warrior Yoga Center was fulfilling and life-altering. Dawn's vast knowledge and commitment to her students and to the practice of yoga is inspiring, and the material we covered was comprehensive and endlessly fascinating, with an excellent balance of addressing the practical and theoretical aspects of yoga. I feel that I received a thorough grounding in both the philosophy and the physical, mental, and spiritual practice of yoga, and my training deepened my engagement with yoga as both a student and a teacher. I feel very lucky to have received my training at Peaceful Warrior. - Jean


Peaceful Warrior was where I started my yoga practice over three years ago and I feel honored to have been able to complete my training under Dawn. To know be able to teach at the studio where my love for yoga started is priceless. The teaching program Dawn runs's is real, and you actually practice teach with eachother which was an amazing way to get over fears and see what areas you may need to work on. I wish I could do it again because I loved it that much. - Kacie

It was a beautiful experience with lovely people. I couldn't have been happier. - Gretchen

Peaceful Warrior is the best studio and yoga school! Clean, spacious and peaceful. Great instructors and classes for all levels. Open at various times. Exciting and interesting workshops and classes. I couldn’t be more pleased :) - Lana
