She was living with chronic and exhausting pain that whittled away her hobbies and her quality of life. In February 2008 she and fiance Rob Nolan where introduced to Therapeutic Yoga. Within a week of practicing Dawn found relief after each session that was made up of familiar shapes taught with great detail to aligning the body, offering easy-filling breaths and slowing down with skill and positive focus.

Greenfield began healing within a few months and currently lives pain-free. Her daily practice, studies and eventually all yoga sessions she taught focused on therapeutic yoga. In October 2011 Greenfield a former yoga studio manager made a huge leap of faith “No more playing small, we’re going to open a yoga studio. I need to do what I’m meant to do – help more people by teaching therapeutic yoga.”
