  • 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?


    Peeing your pants every time you sneeze?


  • I want to transform your life.


    To take you from just making it through your day,


    to enjoying your life, being present with your people,


    doing the things you LOVE!


  • "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."

  • 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.

    Connected in to the life you live

    I work with you inside your day to day life. I work with the tools and environment you have available and because our movement work happens where you life happens, it's easier to remember to do it.  


    Often it is regular daily habits that keep us from healing, I am always on the lookout for the habits that are getting in the way. When I find them I am excited because shifting them opens up the possibility for your body to heal.

  • If you are...

    • in chronic physical pain

    • worried your back or pelvis will go out

    • unable to bend into the car to lift baby out of the car seat without difficulty

    • Worried you will pee if you jump or sneeze

    ...daily life as a parent becomes very difficult.


    I believe that if we take care of our parents...


    We nurture happy healthy emotionally stable children


    Who become healthy leaders and positively impact our world.

    Addressing and caring for your own body and mind has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of your child.


    I work with mothers to get them strong and supported by their bodies.


    If you are in pain, weak and feeling unsupported by your body I want to help.

  • I have the tools, experience and process to help you heal and get strong after giving birth.


    My approach is tailored to fit into your life.


    I will teach you the basics about your body and guide you in a physical discovery process.


    I bring a wide scope of techniques and tools to help you create a stable and strong body you can trust.


    With trust in your body you can be the parent you want to be and do the things that bring you joy!


    I have training in.

    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!

  • How to get started healing with Donyne


    You Book a Clarity Call

    You can do that here. This is free! It makes sure that we are a good fit, that I can help you, and that you trust and like me. We will talk about what is going on for you, what it stops you from doing and what your life would be like without the body complications you are experiencing.


    We choose plan that works best for your needs

    If we decide YES, let's work together, we make a plan. Everyone works differently, and struggles with different things so we will construct a plan so it helps you where you need it and not where you don't. We meet via video or in person if you are in the Comox Valley and get nitty gritty with how often we meet and how much it will cost. You can get a basic idea of how much it costs here.


    I invoice, you pay, we set a date for our first session.

    I'll send you an invoice and the details of the plan we decided on together. You pay through Paypal, Interac e transfer or Credit card. We book our first set of sessions. We continue to revisit and adjust our plan a needed to get you what you need.

  • FAQ

    I'm told I need an operation, can you still help me?

    It depends completely on your diagnosis.


    For some things, yes, and you may not need that operation.


    For other things I can improve your condition and help you recover from the operation but the operation will still be necessary.


    If you haven't already, get assessed by a women's health physiotherapist to start and then...


    Let's talk.

    Are you really expensive?

    I don't think so.


    But no matter your budget there is a way that you can get my help.


    For starters sign up for my free Whole Body Whole Heart email course. That is a great way and free way to get going.


    My Mothership course is really affordable and on a pay from the heart pricing so most people can manage that.


    Personal coaching is more expensive but you could start with a troubleshooting package before you jump into a longer term coaching arrangement.


    I want most people to have access in some way. Which way will work best for you right now?

  • Ask me a question, I'd love to help however I can.

    I am rarely embarrassed or grossed out, so ask or tell me anything.
