About Dee

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!
For me, 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 and now Deva Co., so that everyone I meet can find a little piece of peace within. I have a huge passion for sharing my life experiences and I have many “titles”, which are… Wife to Ben; Mum to Ella, Koby and Donut; Yoga Instructor; Doula; Childbirth educator and Beauty Therapist.
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.
