Teachers Profiles
My name is Dawn Smith and I have ran The Daisy Foundation Bishopbriggs, Kirkintilloch & Killearn for 2 and a half years. A path which I found after having my 2 kids who are 3 & 5 years old. My big passion is for supporting Women and families. And within this business I do this through a range of classes/workshops/meet-ups & online support. Supporting families from 14 weeks pregnant until baby is 2 years old.

I facilitate Daisy Birthing Classes, which are women only classes for pregnant ladies from 14 weeks pregnant to Birth, Helping them prepare for their Birthing Day. Daisy Parent, Active Birth Workshop & Infant Feeding Workshop are workshops for couples from 30 weeks, that cover topics such as Active Birth, Baby Preparation and Infant Feeding topics. Daisy Baby classes suitable from 6 weeks old to baby is 18 months old. These classes are broken down into 3 classes to cover the appropriate age range. Tinies, Wrigglers & Cruisers. And finally Daisy Mama suitable for postnatal mums from 6 weeks to baby is 2 years old, this class helps mums to reconnect with body and focus on themselves for 1 hour per week.

The New Dawn Wellbeing Hub will be an extension of what I have provided over the last couple of years. Allowing a wider community to be reached with Yoga classes, mindfulness classes and much more to come.

Laura Carney Yoga Alliance Professional approved teacher.

I began practicing yoga in 2010 as a means to manage pain for lower back issues following the birth of my son . The strength and confidence gained from my practise lead me to completing my Teacher Training in 2017 with Infinity Integrated where I studied Hatha, Vinyasa, Moksha and Hot Yoga styles followed by Yin Teacher Training with Chi Therapeutics in 2018.

Yoga has now become an integral part of my life it has the power to transform lives. In my classes I aim to share my knowledge and understanding to allow my students to find that deep connection with themselves to enhance their lives in a positive way.

I have been practicing yoga for almost 15yrs and attended my first yoga class in London in my early 20s to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city and stressful job. My focus at this time was building physical strength and flexibility, however fast forward 10 years, a move back to Scotland, a husband and 2 kids later and that is when I discovered and fell in love with Forrest Yoga, all thanks to my wonderful friend and senior Forrest Yoga teacher Yoga with Katie.

Forrest Yoga has not only changed my yoga focus, realising and appreciating the philosophical and spiritual aspects of a strong yoga practice but my whole life. It has taught me how to breathe properly, how to feel in my own body, how to slow down and how to make space. I am passionate about showing my students the wonderful benefits this practice has to offer, both on and off the mat.

When I am not teaching yoga, I love to spend time with my husband, son and daughter, going on family adventures or cooking delicious food. I am really looking forward to seeing some of you on the mat!

Hi, my name is Gillian Ruddock and I have been teaching yoga on a one-to-one and group basis for almost two years, after completing my training in Bali.  Through my classes and workshops, I am keen to help others experience the wide ranging effects of yoga both on and off the mat.  At the start of my own yoga journey, I was drawn to the physical benefits, building strength and discovering flexibility in areas I'd  never encountered before.  Yoga quickly began to support all aspects of my wellbeing.  It helped me to connect to myself on a much deeper level and find peace amidst a busy life.  As well as teaching yoga, I work as a psychologist and I'm passionate about promoting positive wellbeing in others, especially through the mind body connection.  I love exploring the links between traditional Eastern practices and modern Western approaches, and I try to share these through my yoga teachings.  In my classes, I create a relaxed, playful and welcoming space in which students experience intention setting, mindful movement and breath development through carefully planned sequences.  My hope is always that students leave feeling stronger in all senses, more compassionate towards themselves and ultimately empowered to face the highs and lows of day-to-day life.


Slow Pre-Bed Flow (Thursdays 7:45-8:45 pm) - the perfect transition from day to night!  Slow down your mind and body with this pre-bed yoga class.  You will experience a well-balanced practice with a combination of gentle breath-led movements and deeply restorative postures.  

Guided meditation will be used to help you let go of your day and prepare for a restful night ahead.
