Dawn Brooks, a nurse and master yoga teacher in Panama City, will talk to the Emerald Coast Meditation Society on Dec. 15. Her topic will be “Breathing: The Heart of Meditation.”
The ECMS meets at 6:30 p.m. at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The meeting, open to the public without charge, begins with 30 minutes of silent meditation.
Brooks has been a registered nurse since 1984 and has practiced nursing in many different capacities. Most recently she has worked in outpatient care services in Panama City, working in surgery and with pain-management patients.
She began practicing yoga in 2003 to help with her own assorted physical problems. She says she “fell in love with yoga” and began teaching it at a fitness center in 2005. In 2008 she attended Discovery Yoga Teachers Training in St.
Augustine, a five-week, 200-hour course in kripalu yoga. This qualified her as a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance.
In May of this year she completed 500 hours of advanced training, to qualify as a Master Yoga Teacher. Her continuing studies are in yoga as therapy, with a special interest in fibromyalgia and chronic pain.
Brooks hails from Kansas, where she did her nurse’s training. Most of her classes are offered at the Yoga for You Studio on W. 23rd St., Panama City. She can be reached at email@example.com.
The ECMS is an ecumenical group open to anyone without charge. It meets on the first and third Thursdays. The evening will end around 8 p.m. with a short guided meditation. Anyone who would like meditation instruction should come at 6:15 p.m. Questions?
