Dawn Lister (she/her) is a wellness consultant who believes that one cannot experience true wellness until we learn to love and nurture both the mind and body. Her rich experience as a bodyworker, cranial sacral therapist, hypnotherapist and mindfulness teacher informs her classes which are an invitation to come home to your innate sense of wholeness and peace.

Her yoga journey began in 1998 in Edinburgh, then she continued her training and studies in London under various teachers and schools, including the Sivananda and Iyengar traditions.

Having taught for 27 years she specialises in mindfulness, having studied with both the Kadampa and Mahayana Schools of Buddhism she now offers secular compassion based mindfulness classes, workshops and retreats, 1-1’s as well as a consultant within businesses.

Dawn is a writer, speaker and author of the highly successful “Awakened Woman Course”. She has run retreats in the UK and abroad for 24 years and is the eternal student who believes in the value of surrender and compassion as a way to heal and build community.

She also owns The Dawn Lister Therapy Centre, based in Leigh-on-Sea, where she sees clients for both Body Work, Cranial Sacral Therapy, mentoring and hypnotherapy.


“I warmly recommend the teachers at Anahata Yoga Centre! Warm, knowledgeable and dedicated to promoting yoga!”
