Do you find it hard to be present with your kids because your body hurts or doesn't do what you need it to?
Suffering and gritting your teeth just trying to get through your day?
Dreading having to bend over and lift your child out of the car seat?
Tired of hearing that all you need to do is kegels?

"I’m physically stronger and more aware of my breath, movements, and body and how they work in concert. I’m less concerned about getting big results quickly through struggle, discomfort and pushing myself. I have a deeper appreciation for taking thing one controlled, comfortable step at a time." Ocea R
Benefits of working with Donyne
Leave guilt at the door
Doing the work makes a difference to getting results but feeling guilty doesn't. I work with you to problem solve, celebrate what you do and the wins you have, and grow a curious and gentle relationship with yourself and your body
No rushing to appointments
I come to where you are in the Comox Valley or we meet online. No need to deal with traffic or parking. No need to leave the house at a certain time. Don't worry, I won't judge you by the state of your home or your personal hygiene, I know what it is like being a mom. How you are is good enough. Many of my clients meet me in their pyjamas.
No child care, no problem
It's up to you. If you want some non child time, by all means, but we can work while your children are playing nearby. As we continue into movement strategies and exercises your child can actually help us.
