Dawn Mauricio

Insight Meditation + Mindfulness Yoga
Montreal, Canada Area
Dawn is a yoga and meditation teacher with a playful, dynamic, and centered approach. She is known for her boundless energy, and smiling personality that are both contagious, and motivating. Teaching since 2006, she has received certifications from Spirit Rock Meditation CenterTrue North InsightNaada Yoga, and Yoga Tune Up®.
Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has completed numerous silent residential retreats in Canada, the US, Thailand, and Burma, including a 3-month silent retreat at Insight Meditation Society. She has completed several programs of meditation studies from True North Insight (2-year teaching mentorship), and Spirit Rock Meditation Center (18-month Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training, 2-year Dedicated Practitioners' Program). Currently, Dawn is a student in two multi-year teacher training programs to enable her to lead silent residential retreats for both teenagers with Inward Bound Meditation and adults with Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
In 2007 she co-founded the Yoga Mala Foundation, a Montreal-based non-profit organization that supports the development of yoga programs in underserved communities. Dawn continues to be involved as a board member. She is also a board member for True North Insight, a charitable organization offering a full schedule of Buddhist Insight (Vipassana) meditation retreats and courses in English and French. 
Drawing from her deep experience in yoga and meditation, she delivers an effective balance of clear, precise instruction and mental reflection. Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the yoga mat and meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.
Her teachings are consistently inspired by Pascal AuclairSayadaw U TejaniyaYuMee ChungJill Miller, and her Naada Yoga students.
