EXPERIENCE

I have devoted over a decade to offering therapeutic yoga privately and in small groups in medical settings, like Physical Therapy clinics for issues including MS and Parkinson’s Disease, Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization programs, with Outreach organizations which serve the incarcerated population, and adolescents recovering from trauma. All of life's stages have unique challenges, and I am honored to serve clients of all ages.

I use a therapeutic, person-centered behavioral health model incorporating theory and practices of yoga and yoga's sister science, Ayurveda. My specific training draws from the knowledge bases of physical therapy, interpersonal neurobiology, perinatal health, and trauma sensitive care.

I am an International Association of Yoga Therapy (C-IAYT) Certified Yoga Therapist, Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-YRT 500), and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP).

 

 
 

Client Reviews

Fawn has an intelligence, thoughtfulness, humility, and kindness that she brings to each class. She creates a safe and fun space where you can learn about yourself through exploration and practice without judgement or expectations. Her instruction not only informs the physical practice, but integrates the mind and body both on and off the mat. Her classes are for the curious and serious alike, or anyone who wants to work on positive change!
— Jennifer S. Lin, MD, MCR
Fawn safely guided me through my whole pregnancy, encouraging me to tune into my body and maintain flexibility and strength. Postpartum, she showed my how to repair and strengthen my core. Fawn’s creative classes and experienced guidance have inspired me to get on my mat every day.
— Cally Fruscello, Chef and Holistic Health Coach
Fawn is a true yogi and healer. Despite my 20 years of yoga practice, I moved muscles that I had never found before! This was truly a healing and enlightening yoga experience in a beautiful setting. I highly recommend Fawn and our yoga retreat!
— Beth Freeman, PhD, MBA
Fawn, Thanks for your wonderful teaching. I am just a beginner in my body, and in a process of recovery from major surgery and six months of chemo. Soon maybe I’ll be able to graduate to gentle yoga. Thanks for your great work.
