Hi my name is Danera (DEE) Wilkinson & welcome to my website. I am a mum and I love yoga! I started Mini Buddhas Yoga on the Gold Coast as a means to bring yoga to everyone from prenatal, mums and bubs, and kids to seniors!
Since beginning on this journey several years ago I have established a solid foundation of yoga in my local community, especially with the children. I currently teach at a few local schools and kindys including Tallebudgera, Clover Hill & Elanora State Schools and Playschool Kindergarten. The connection I feel with the kids is amazing, I just love their enthusiasm when they come to their yoga class each week.
I also have classes at Currumbin for Mums & toddlers including Move & Groove and Kinder Yoga. Speciality classes include Yoga for beginners, Mums & Bubs Yoga and Prenatal Yoga.
I have developed a strong connection and bond with people who had never tried yoga before and didn't think they could "do" it. I love to hear and see their enjoyment and satisfaction when they realise that they actually doing it! Woohoo!
I have a huge passion for sharing my yoga experience with all ages. I have been practicing yoga for many years including during pregnancy and postnatal. The mental challenge and stimulation it gives is amazing and has helped immensely through the busy and stressful times of raising my young children.
Last year I became a BIRTHING FROM WITHIN® Mentor and Doula in training. I am one of the first on the Gold Coast to be trained in this extraordinary way of educating parents about their childbirth journey. They are awesome childbirth classes that I can't wait to share with parents-to-be on the Gold Coast. The next series will be in September. Check out the Birthing From Within page...
My training includes a 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Course with Samadhi Family Yoga NZ, specifically tailored for kids of all ages -babies through to adults! It is the first of its kind in a course focusing on the physical and mental development of children at different ages and stages.
I am also the first Gold Coast Certified Aqua Yoga teacher which combines the soothing and supportive qualities of water with the traditional benefits of land based yoga.
As such Mini Buddhas Yoga concentrates on these specialised areas as a yoga teacher and childbirth mentor on the Gold Coast with classes for Nutrition, Childbirth Education, Pregnancy (Prenatal), Mums & Bubs, easy beginner for adults and seniors (including Aqua Yoga), and toddlers and kids yoga in different age groups, including kids yoga for schools, childcare centres and outdoor yoga classes.
I have all the relevant paperwork with Blue Card, insurance and First Aid.
We are located on the beautiful Gold Coast in a central location at Currumbin & Palm Beach.
We have outdoor kids yoga classes at Laguna Park, Palm Beach, Gold Coast. All the other classes are at Thrower House, which is a cute little cottage used for the community at Palm Beach.
