Yoga

Yoga has been a tool for ages to align the physical with the spiritual—the body with mind and soul. With a focus on prenatal yoga in Greensboro, I use practices that draw us into community and communion with the Wild Woman to bring about peace, joy and security for our journey through motherhood.

Doula

A doula is a non-medical birth support person. I believe that when a woman is allowed the time and space to move into her personal power, she will have the birth experience she desires. My doula services in Greensboro will help facilitate your desired birthing experience. I also offer Reiki, Mother Blessing ceremonies and Belly Binding.

Ceremony

Holding ceremony brings us together in our power to create magic! We can hold ceremony to honor the arrival of menstruation or the moon cycle, to honor the union of love or any other event in which a transformation happens. By setting aside time, gathering together a circle of support and creating intention, we can infuse life with power and joy.


You are a powerful, unique and spiritual person. Your birth experience is powerful and unique too. You belong in a community of powerful women!

Testimonials

Dawn does a fantastic job tailoring her class to what her participants need. Her experience as a birth doula and a mother herself means she’s been there, felt that, and can guide you through what you need to feel grounded, confident, and physically well during your pregnancy. I loved her classes and will definitely be back.
— Nichole Gibbs Preyer, prenatal student
I love working with Dawn, her creative spirit shines though all that she does. Her attention to detail and passion are at the forefront of each project she works on. Whether it is a new yoga class she is teaching or when she is coming up with new and beautiful ways to express her clients ideas in a website, print or logo design. I am so grateful to know and work with her. I highly recommend anyone looking for yoga or doula work to spark that relationship. You will be grateful you did!

I started taking Dawn’s prenatal yoga class soon after finding out we were expecting again after having experienced a miscarriage six months prior. I knew I needed to take action and up my self care this time. Dawn’s class and services allowed me to take a big step in that direction.

Every week Dawn would lead us into an immersive experience that addressed our physical, emotional and spiritual journey as expecting and new mothers. I so valued and needed this time after a stressful workday. Dawn’s classes always stayed with me after each session and I give credit to her guidance and approach for opening me up to face fears and make difficult decisions that have allowed me to be the mother I wanted to become.

I knew I was interested in postpartum belly-binding, so it was great to know that Dawn would be able to provide that service as well!

I am so grateful for the path that Dawn’s services cleared for us as we became new parents. We can’t thank you enough, Dawn!

I took Dawn’s prenatal yoga class from the mid first trimester to birth and loved every one. The positions, visualizations, meditations and breathing exercises were great for my first time mom worries, busy mind and strange body aches. Dawn individualized the the sequences based on my (and other mamas’) needs/trimesters and I felt good, mentally and physically after each class. These classes definitely helped me prepare for a satisfying birth experience and gave me better techniques to face the challenges and general stresses that came with my pregnancy. The postpartum classes are great too its just harder to get to those with a new baby!
