Hi I’m Alana Kilpatrick a passionate teacher I love helping women learn to love and trust themselves. Combining ancient wisdom with modern science is something that has always interested me and I feel compelled to spread and share true wisdom when I hear it! A certified Yoga teacher trained in India, specialising in Prenatal Yoga, Kids Yoga, irest yoga Nidra meditation techniques and Yin Yoga, further on I’m a Childbirth Educator and Hypnobirthing Practitioner.
I am here after my own three beautiful hypnobirths including two hospital water births and one recent homebirth. The practice of prenatal yoga throughout all three of my pregnancies allowed me the body connection and wisdom that I needed to birth confidently and calmly. Practicing the powerful art of yoga for over 11 years it was obvious to me that when the time came for me to grow my own babies that this would be the practice to prepare my whole body ecosystem during this incredible yet demanding time of life.
Having experienced my own miscarriages I knew pregnancy can be a tender time so practicing yoga safely was very important to me. I travelled, studied and became a fully certified RPYT Prenatal Yoga Teacher. During my first successful pregnancy I was blessed to learn the powerful techniques of Hypnobirthing and added this to my existing yogic toolkit. Wow what a beautiful waterbirth experience! A year later and after teaching pregnancy yoga to many women who were in awe that birth can actually be positive! I knew there was more work to do! So I became a certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner.
Pregnancy is a time of such immense change it is so vital to have calm practices to help control anxiety and fear that can arise. So here I am continuously learning and growing my wisdom to support couples and individuals in a calm and down to earth way. My recent passions include launching my Online Prenatal Yoga Series which I filmed while I was pregnant with my third bubba and becoming a Certified Positive Cesarean Practitioner.
I run the Positive Birth Program in my isolated community in Weipa Cape York, Atherton Tablelands & Cairns Far North Queensland.
I believe spreading this fantastic knowledge, to create confident empowered individuals and couples during pregnancy and birth, has the power to transform future generations.

Alana’s prenatal classes were a fantastic way of preparing for pregnancy and birth. I looked forward to every class, knowing that as soon as you walk through the door you relax! I was always greeted with a massive smile, feeling like I’d known Alana for years rather than 5 mins! I found that it was a great space to talk about pregnancy and birthing with other mothers, some being first-timers or multiple births. Everyone shared their stories, how they were going from week to week- including all the REAL details of pregnancy and birthing that nobody tells you about! The classes taught me so much, not only about birthing but about the changes in my body and how to care for my body with the yoga practice & preparation. I found I was leaving feeling refreshed, with more energy flowing through my body (sounds very zen- I would never have believed it, but it’s true!). You are the shit and bananas. Thanks Alana.
