Danae is a uniquely experienced and passionate Specialised Birth Doula, Birth Preparation and Pregnancy Yoga Teacher, based in Cremorne.
Having studied with the Australian Doula College, Gail Tully – creator of Spinning Babies and The Yoga Institute (now a member of the teaching faculty), Danae uses her broad knowledge to support women through what she believes is the most important experience of their lives.
Danae teaches Traditional Breath Centered Yoga in small intimate groups. ‘Breath Centered’ means the breath leads, guides and dictates all movement. It is the focus of the practice and is pivotal to working with the mind and preparing for Birth. The practices incorporate: a physical practice, specialised meditation, hypnobirthing affirmations in practice, calm birth practice, pranayama (breathing techniques), how to use vocal sound in birth and active birthing preparation and postures. Thursday evenings at 6.30pm & Saturday’s 9.30am.
Along with supporting women in Birth and in the Post Natal period, Danae also works with women and couple’s in Birth Preparation Sessions, covering thorough birth education, all the techniques listed above, natural methods to relieve and work with functional pain, create a clinical care birth preference document for your Midwife or Obstetrician ( birth plan outlining all preferences for clinical care that may come up), and preparing for the Post Natal Period. These sessions can be done in your home or in Danae’s studio and can be done in groups.
Danae participates in the education program for 2nd Year Medical Students at the University of New South Wales, bringing more awareness to the importance of the experience of the birthing mother. Her passion is empowering mums and dads through the preparation and incredible experience of birth.
