  • About Donyne

    From fragile to fantastic


    After my son was born, I struggled for 3 1/2 years with regular, recurring pain and instability in my feet, back and pelvis. I remember feeling terrified and depressed.


    I was scared that I would feel this way for the rest of my life.

    I went to physiotherapy, chiropractic, and took up belly dance to get my core strong. While they were helpful they did not fix me.


    I felt breakable.

    Finally, I started dragging myself out of bed before my son woke up, so I could do something about it.


    I started with 20 minutes every day of very simple slow variations of sun salutations.


    I got stronger, and was tuning in and listening to my body.


    I started to notice a difference.




    I love to nerd out about bodies and how to recover fully after pregnancy and childbirth.

    Functional exercise

    Training you in movements you need to be able to do in your life, so you can do them well and pain free in every day.


    Developing a short tailored daily routine can make a huge difference for your healing.

    Fascial & soft tissue release

    Releasing stuck and held tissue can facilitate postural change

    Alignment & breath assessment

    Accessing breath and body alignment brings your deep foundational core on line

    Life integration

    Investigating how to incorporate new posture, breath and exercise habits into your day without having to make lots of extra time is key.

    Habitual body use inquiry

    Making sure what you are doing most of your day and night supports your healing.

    Advanced Post natal training

    Understanding and educating about specific post natal issues that apply to you so you can avoid them or heal them.

    Hypopressive or low pressure fitness

    Learning this unique set of postures and breath, widely used for post natal recovery in Europe, profoundly influences the relation between the shoulders, ribcage and pelvic floor.   Lets get your deep core system supporting you!
