Hello, lovely :-) I'm Chika! The founder and owner of Wa Yoga. I'm a Yoga Australia registered teacher and mum to a toddler. I believe in the healing power of yoga & mindfulness. I also believe that self-love and self-care are essential ingredients for a happy & healthy mum. I’m here to help you embrace self-love and self-care through the simple practice of yoga & mindfulness and to help you become a happier and healthier version of YOU.

We are Kids Yoga Specialist
At Wa Yoga, we specialise in Yoga for Children. It’s never too early to explore the mental, physical and emotional benefits yoga brings to all of us! Chika is a Yoga Australia registered Children’s Yoga Teacher who trained extensively with children’s yoga expert, Loraine Rushton. Chika has knowledge and experience required for delivering age-appropriate yoga classes for the children as young as 3 year olds. She is also experienced in teaching little babies and toddlers as her own daughter (now 4 years old) always loved doing yoga with her since the day she was born. There is a growing community of mums, bubs & toddlers who come and support each other's journey, here on the Northern Beaches NSW so come & join us if you are a new mum!
Mums & Bubs, Mums & Toddlers
Currently we offer ongoing afternoon classes on Wednesdays in Dee Why and Fridays in Mona Vale during school terms. The classes are designed more for mums and we provide child-friendly environment. (no creche nor child-minding service offered) Older siblings are welcome too in the class and there is no extra charge. (There is no age limit, babies, crawlers, toddlers and pre-schoolers are all welcome) For full details, please go to bookings page.
Kids yoga classes are totally different from adult yoga classes and require different kinds of skills to engage children of different age groups effectively. Our classes are not only fun and creative but also educational and appropriate for each age group. We focus on the development of healthy young minds, bodies & hearts through movements, breathing, stories, singing, games, meditation and relaxation. We know how to capture kids’ hearts and the children will leave the class feeling calmer and happier. Chika has taught hundreds of children and has worked with multiple daycare centres and after school care providers.
Chika also enjoys facilitating family yoga classes and providing bonding experience for families through yoga & mindfulness. Send us an email to enquire when the next workshop is if you have primary school children. If you have younger children, they are welcome to come to our weekly classes on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Home Visits for Privates
Chika loves working with your health & wellness goals and is passionate about connecting you on a deeper level through private classes. This option is especially great for new mums who are severely sleep deprived and don't feel fit enough to drive to a group class. She is available on Norther Beaches NSW (please go to bookings page for our service areas) but can also travel to other areas (extra travelling charge applies)
Please feel free to get in touch for a quote. We'd love to discuss how we can assist you & your children.
"Chika is such a beautiful teacher who goes above and beyond for her students. As soon as I walked into my first class, I instantly felt at peace with her soft, welcoming energy. Every class is super inclusive and tailored to everyone’s individual needs, with Chika suggesting different ways we can do each pose so that it works for us. When my sleeping little one awoke during a class, Chika continued teaching while rocking her back to sleep in her pram so I could keep focusing on my yoga. I feel really uplifted after had classes, and it’s also a lovely place to connect with other like-minded mums. 10/10 would highly recommend!"
"I really look forward to going to Chika's Mum's & Bub's yoga class every week. I love the way Chika gives you an opportunity to focus on a particular area of concern, whether it be shoulders, neck, lower back etc. Chika has a wonderful calm way about her & I think the Bub's definitely pick up on that. I feel fantastic when I come out of the class, Chika is making such a wonderful difference to our lives through yoga. I highly recommend her classes to everyone, she is one of the best Yoga teaches I have come across."
