  • Richard Castaldi

    As a professor, I can deeply appreciate your dedication and concern for your students. As a yoga beginner, I found your teaching style very comfortable and motivating. The yoga program that you designed is perfect in meeting (actually exceeding) my original yoga goals. My body is more relaxed and limber and I have noticably more energy. More importantly, you have given me tools that I expect to use and benefit from the rest of my life. I heartily recommend your yoga teaching to my friends and work colleagues.

    My arthritis came back with a vengeance after a gall bladder operation. My shoulders, arms, collarbone and neck were so painful I couldnt get out of bed. I had to do something. Working individually with Ms. Summers once a week for two months has really helped me. It seems to have loosened up my shoulders. It taught me to be more relaxed. Now I know how to start getting relaxed. This was really a godsend. It was fun, too!

  • Lolly Lewis

    I'm always busy, and my schedule is erratic, so I wanted to create a practice that I could use when I could find the time, wherever I was. Dawn was perfectly responsive to my needs: I don't feel pressured to do more than I can right now, but there's always support for me to learn. I come away from my lessons energized!

  • Nancy Iverson

    New Dawn Yoga website

    Nancy found the exercises she learned from Ms. Summers helped her work through a spinal disc injury that made walking extremely painful. Primarily from yoga, she completely regained her pain-free functioning. She began yoga after unsuccessful results from physical therapy and chiropractic to resolve the injury. She continues to come for a yoga lesson when her life becomes stressful. In her professional practice, Iverson routinely refer teenagers with musculo-skeletal problems for yoga therapy. "I would love them to learn good patterns early on, rather than to have to unlearn bad ones at age 40," she says.

  • Anaya Adair

    The New Dawn Yoga Therapy approach is physically enjoyable and can also help advanced yoga students refine their practice. "I’m impressed by Dawn’s approach, which is gentle and different for each person," says Anaya Adair, a yoga instructor herself. "After working with her on my cobra pose, I began to feel the notion of an integrated back. I’ve left her classes feeling very energized and peaceful and good, and I didn’t have to stand on my head."

    I recommend these classes to people like my parents--who have never had any yoga experience-- to learn how to do it right the first time and to those with experience who wish to deepen their yoga practice.
