Meet Our Teachers
Dawn Lankford RN RYT was born in Jackson Michigan and has lived in Maryville Tennessee for over 20 years. Where she and her husband raised 3 daughters. She has been a registered nurse for 17 years and has worked for many years in cardiac rehabilitation and is currently employed by Tennova Healthcare in Knoxville TN. Dawn has been interested in wellness from a Mind, Body, Spirit perspective for a very long time. Being a nurse has helped her to realize that wellness is not always the absence of illness or pain but the awareness about where we are in the present moment and making the choice to find our optimal level of health now. Dawn has had an interest in and taken yoga classes for more than 6 years. She has been a student of Donna Marie Vigilante at Mountain Yoga and Healing for
about 4 years and has also participated in the Anusara Immersion program with Joe Taft and Deidre Smith Glimer in Asheville NC, and taken workshops with Martin Kirk and Desiree Rumbaugh. In March of 2012 Dawn completed a 200hr Kripalu yoga alliance certified teacher training program at Discovery Yoga in St. Augustine Florida under the direction of Deva Parnell. She is very excited to begin this new journey and share her love of yoga with people of all levels, all ages, all bodies! In her free time Dawn has a passion for cooking, listening to music, spending time with friends and family including her husband, 3 daughters, 2 grandchildren, and her dog Mollie.
