Hi I’m Danera, but most people call me Dee.
I believe we’re all here on this earth to be
great - and to do great things! To share our love and passion. To be true to our
heart and soul. To give and receive with love and kindness.
I'd love to support you on that mission of
self-discovery and show you how you can take simple steps on your own path to
greatness – whatever that means for you!
I have a huge passion for sharing my life
experiences and I have many "titles", here they are...
Mum to Ella, Koby and Donut
This one didn’t come easy to me, it was a huge
transition at a time in my life when I thought it was going to be a breeze! I really struggled in the early days after the birth of my daughter. I had to come to terms with the lack
of sleep and the fact that someone was dependent on me 24/7. I was so grateful
to have a great support network around me as I got used to this huge change in my
life. It wasn’t until I found my tribe of other mums that things began to
really feel good. Then I returned to yoga and it solidified the fact that inner
peace starts from within.
Wife to my soul mate Ben
We found each other at 18 and have been inseparable ever since. I love him
more and more as time passes but sometimes I just want to strangle him! That’s
why we both think it’s so important to have soul time on your own and with your
Teaching yoga feels so right. Being able to
come in front of a class and connect with my students is such a gift. I think I
have a good way of explaining so people can easily understand what to do in the
way that is right for them. This is what inspired me to create Mini Buddhas
Yoga, so that everyone I meet can find a little piece of Buddha within.
Doula and Childbirth “Mentor”
I love babies, how could I not?! But where I
truly love to be is supporting parents (especially mums) on their childbearing
journey. To see women at their most vulnerable but also their most powerful is
something that is truly amazing. I love to share my knowledge as a BIRTHING FROM WITHIN®
Mentor and Certified Doula. This gives the parents such amazing skills to take
with them on their adventure to parenthood. Skills they can use for life! And it
aligns really well with the yogic philosophy and connection to mind, body and
breath. I am one of the only on the Gold Coast to be trained in this extraordinary
way of educating parents about their childbirth journey.
Most people are intuitive but don’t realise it.
This was much like me until I had a few nudges to explore it further. I use my
connection and intuition to give personalized attention in all my areas of
With over 20 years experience my expertise
and knowledge is well utilised to give you hands on healing through body treatments.
