Dawn Chouman originally found Pilates as a way to strengthen her core for Karate and running. She became so passionate about Pilates that she knew she would be practicing forever and she wanted to share her passion with others! She is a comprehensive and classically trained Pilates teacher. She is also certified to teach CoreAlign. Dawn loves teaching all body types and find that Pilates has something to offer everyone! She has worked with professional athletes, people just out of wheelchairs, pregnant women, children, special needs adults and children, people with knee replacements, hip replacements, herniated discs and clients with MS, Fibromyalgia, CP, MD just to name a few.
She worked in a Stott® Pilates Studio in Egypt and taught an international community in Cairo for 6 months. She loved the challenge of overcoming language barriers and transforming bodies through Pilates’ movement. While there, she fell in love with the TRX Suspension Training System® and the imbalances it can pull out and correct in combination with Pilates. She also teaches CoreAlign® functional training. She met the inventor, physical therapist Jonathon Hoffman, many years ago when his machine was still a prototype. She saw the brilliance and quickly decided she had to teach CoreAlign® also. Join Dawn for a Pilates session and explore how Pilates, TRX® and CoreAlign® can transform your life for the better!
Dawn is fascinated with Fascia and how it organizes our entire body. Dawn trained with Dr. Anna Maria Vitali, Dr. Carla Stecco and Dr. Antonio Stecco in Italy to further her education on fascia and how it affects the body in movement. She loves sharing different techniques on how to ensure your fascia is hydrated and functional!
Dawn teaches various workshops, classes and corporate wellness programs and will come to you. She loves what she does and is willing to share it with you! Contact us if you would like to schedule a workshop.
When Dawn is not teaching you may find her hiking on the Greenbelt or cycling around Austin. She enjoys spending time with her hubby and two daughters and their little rescue dog, Dexter. If you see her out on the trail, biking on the road or practicing Pilates on a SUP, feel free to join her!
