A Little More About Me

About Dawn Young, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, RPYT, C-IAYT,  YACEP 

My name is Dawn Young, and I am the owner of City Yoga Warren. I have been studying, practicing and teaching yoga in Warren and Macomb County since 2008. I live and work in the local community and am a founding partner of Strongheart Yoga in Warren, Michigan.

I believe anyone can do yoga and there is a yoga to fit every body. Finding an authentic, knowledgeable and caring teacher is an important first step on your yoga journey. This is where I come in.  Having completed my prerequisite studies in 2011, I jumped right into the studio experience, teaching many classes each week to develop my skills and further my knowledge. Since that time, I have discovered my niche and completed hundreds of hours in additional studies and certifications, including Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Pelvic Health and Yoga Therapy. Combining my personal practice with my having taught thousands of hours of classes, training and workshops to all levels of students, I have learned there is no one right way to teach yoga, but there are many wrong ways.


I'm available for 1:1 private yoga instruction, corporate and studio- based yoga classes of all sizes and special event yoga. In addition to teaching popular styles of Hatha & Vinyasa, I specialize in Yoga Therapy, including Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and Prenatal Yoga classes and series.  Additional offerings of Reiki, Meditation Introduction & Ageless Grace Education and Yoga for Pelvic health available.


I would love to work with you and support you on your yoga journey.  Please contact me with any questions you may have.
