ABOUT DEEDEE

DeeDee lived in Ireland, London, New York and Massachusetts over the last decade as a professional actress. Between roles in; castles, in theatres, on film and TV, she discovered nannying, performing children’s shows, bikram yoga and meditation — and her dream was to combine her passion for children and that of creating union and connection. This was only strengthened following being diagnosed with a chronic illness – which led her to seek holistic health options and realisations regarding the power of the mind and that of creating healthy balance in life. 

She moved home to Sydney (where the love of family resides!) and trained as a children’s yoga teacher and studied meditation facilitation. As a teacher she helps children learn to celebrate their bodies, minds, and spirits in fun, safe and engaging ways – reminding kids to be human-BEings, not just human-DOings!
