Chika is the founder of Wa Yoga and a Yoga Australia registered teacher for both adults & kids. She's a student of yoga for 13 years and has been teaching yoga & mindfulness for the last 7 years. She's also a mum to an almost 5-year old daughter. She specialises in offering online courses and memberships for mothers of young children and young families. She's a creator of Mindful Mama Membership, the online membership space for mums of young kids, helping them find balance through the healing power of yoga, mindfulness and Ayurveda. She emphasises the importance of self-care and daily practice in her classes and encourages students to connect with silence to explore inner wisdom and clarity. She has a gentle approach to teaching yoga and her classes are always infused with mindfulness, reminding people to slow down and come back to the present moment. Her mission is to inspire and motivate other mums to start incorporating yoga & mindfulness into their daily self-care ritual.
She has taught hundreds of face-to-face yoga classes in Sydney, Northern Beaches and the Central Coast NSW before moving all her services online in March 2020. She has studied with many respected yoga & meditation teachers including Christina Brown and Lorain Rushton, but has been influenced mainly by Sarah Owen and her teachers Sarah Powers and Alan Wallace.
Chika has made a positive impact in many people’s lives and she will continue to inspire & empower others to practice yoga & mindfulness daily on & off the mat.

What does Wa Yoga mean?
Wa is a Japanese word that has multiple meanings. One meaning represented by the character 和 means harmony. The simplicity of yoga & mindfulness practice we share brings mind, body & heart into harmony, and through that inner harmony, we are able to extend it to the outer world, creating harmonious relationships with others and the natural environment. Another meaning represented by the character 輪 means circle. As our logo, the seed of life symbol suggests, there is a lot of potential in many circles coming together to create something bigger and more meaningful. Another meaning represented by the character 話 means conversation. We love chatting and getting to know you! Come and join our lovely online community to connect with other like-minded mums :-)
"My son and I really enjoy Chika’s yoga classes! It’s rare to find a class where your child can stay with you throughout, and can join in or do their own thing nearby. By the end of the class I feel less tense and more relaxed and happy that I’ve been able to fit in some ‘me’ time without needing a babysitter. Chika’s gentle and caring nature sets the perfect tone for a lovely yoga class, she really cares about her mums & bubs community & always adjusts the poses to suit what I need that day. Thank you Chika!" from Leanne
