Dawn Carr, Ph. D
Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
Dawn Carr, PhD, completed her yoga training in 2004, and taught in yoga studios in Ohio, North Carolina, and California before arriving in Florida in 2016. In 2013, Dawn was introduced to the ashtanga method in the mysore tradition at Stanford University, when she began working with Russell Case, the director of Ashtanga at Stanford University and a KPJAYI certified teacher and former student of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. Since 2013, Dawn has had the opportunity to learn from several other KPJAYI authorized teachers including Taylor Hunt, Heather Serna, Erica Morton Magill, Robbie Cavallero, Sidney Huang, Aimee Echo, Peter Bertero, Anne Finstad, Jennifer Dougherty, Elizabeth Crozier, Harmony Slater, Rich Ray, and Kate O’Donnell. In May 2016, Dawn spent a week learning from Sharath Jois, attending the intermediate series workshop at Stanford University.
Dawn seeks to make ashtanga accessible, helping students build strength and flexibility to move through their practice safely. Her approach to teaching has been shaped by her academic training as a social scientist. Dawn worked as a researcher at Stanford University before joining the faculty at Florida State University in the Department of Sociology and at the Pepper Institute on Aging and Social Policy.
