Hello I’m Donna Grace,
Thank you so much for stopping by to learn a bit more about me.
“I believe by sharing my experiences, my gifts and my knowledge I can help you to awaken your inner wisdom and facilitate profound transformation and healing for you”
In 2017 I took a huge leap of faith, I packed my bags and left my home of Australia for a nomadic life. I sold my house and now live between Bali, India, and Australia, moving whenever I feel the calling.
Bali, is my spiritual home. As I am fortunate enough to be able to manage my business from anywhere in the world, I choose to spend most of my time here. Bali is every bit as incredible as you might imagine, being surrounded by nature, its gentle culture always has me feeling so nourished.
India, is where I go to explore ancient teachings and feed my practice. I find myself constantly drawn to the vibrancy, food and culture of this splendid country.
Having spent more than 6 months discovering different parts of India, completing yoga teacher trainings and establishing connections with amazing people and beautiful places I am keen to share these magical experiences with others by offering curated Travel and Wellness Tours which will commence in March of 2020.
Its where I go to experience authentic Ayurvedic healing and rejuvenation treatments for my body, mind and soul and explore different aspects of Yoga and meditation.
Australia, is where my roots come from. It’s where I grew up, raised my child, and became a solopreneur. It is also where my corporate company is and I have family and friends that I frequently visit.
As a young child I experienced trauma and abuse that impacted my life and as a result of those experiences I found myself seeking ways to heal my body, mind and spirit so that I could live the life I felt I was here to live. That is a life of joy, fulfillment, peace and harmony.
I have learnt to live a more balanced life by incorporating the principles of yoga, meditation and self care into my daily life. Today I live with a sense of happiness and contentment to be present in each moment.
Just prior to 2000 I hit rock bottom.
With just $600 to my name and a 13 month old son I left a violent relationship. I had to start from scratch. I knew there was something better for us both and through sheer grit and determination I spent a grueling six years in family court, while raising my son as his sole parent, and starting my first business. I had no support from his other parent, and very little support from my family.
Whilst I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for work once my son started school, I did know that I didn’t want to do the work I had been doing before I had Lucas. I was looking for something completely different. I had been interested in astrology and personal development since I was around 19 years of age, when I had started to recover from anorexia nervosa. That was my first experience of self healing.
My first healing course was with Living Essences as a flower essence practitioner, then I studied remedial massage and in 2000 I founded Adelaide Mobile Massage and it quite literally changed my life. Within four months I had bought a car, within 4 years I owned my own home, and just 8 years after founding the business I sold it for $140,000.
My first job was in travel, tourism and hospitality before moving into recruitment and finally making the decision to start my own business in 2000. As a small business owner it comes with the territory. The corporate part of me is experienced in, liaising with stakeholders, developing and implementing company policies, marketing, recruitment, collaboration, workshop facilitator, budget management, organizational development, conflict resolution and time management skills… that’s the corporate part of me.
I found my way to a more spiritually balanced way of living later in life. I had a successful business, a son who was on his way to study engineering at University, a house, car etc all the stuff that we in the West are brought up to believe will give us a good quality of life and make us happy.
I spent many years operating from my intellectual mind which is fine, making decisions, driving businesses, looking after my son and his needs. Except I was restless, I wasn’t happy. I was suffering from anxiety and periods of mild depression and I needed to do something to reduce these symptoms in my life.
I was always drawn to Yoga, having practiced for more than 20 years inconsistently I committed to a more regular practice in 2011 and I completed my first Yoga teaching training as a gift to myself for my 50th birthday.
The healing modalities I have trained in include:
- Living Essence Practitioner Diploma of Remedial Massage
- Auricular Therapy
- The Journey Brandon Bays
- DNA/Theta Healing
- Reconnective Healing

My strength is in my resilience, determination, and ability to manifest and create business opportunities that allow me to have a life of abundance and joy and assist other people to do the same.
I have always been good with timing and been able to see opportunities for myself, and for others. One of my skills is being able to connect with your purpose and see opportunities that fit in with you.

I am a natural optimist.
