After moving back to California from New York City, Dawn was a budding Massage Therapist and ACE certified Personal Trainer and Aerobics instructor, when she was taken under the wing of the owner of Angel City Gym, Ivan Dahl, in West Hollywood. It was there that she learned about Pilates and got certified with Master Instructor Ivan, learning the Physical Mind Institutes and Stott Pilates Methods. Since 1999, Dawn has worked with clients on all levels, in all stages of life, and loves reconnecting people to their bodies in ways that empower themselves to tap into their potential.
