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. I am also a certified doula and love to see new life enter the world.
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 have taught at local schools and kindys including Tallebudgera, Clover Hill & Elanora State Schools, Coomera Anglican College and Playschool Kindergarten, Elanora. 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 Palm Beach/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.
My yoga 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.
I love to share my passion as a BIRTHING FROM WITHIN® Mentor and Certified Doula. 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 really enjoy sharing with parents-to-be on the Gold Coast. Check out the Birthing From Within page…
As such Mini Buddhas Yoga concentrates on these specialised areas as a yoga teacher, doula and childbirth mentor on the Gold Coast with classes for 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 also have 20 years experience as a beauty therapist and provide holistic beauty treatments and massage in the local area of Palm Beach Currumbin and Elanora. Check out the Buddhaful Beauty page for more info.
I have outdoor kids yoga classes at Laguna Park, Palm Beach, Gold Coast. All the other classes are at Thrower House, which is a lovely little cottage used for the community at Palm Beach.
