I'd love you to know you're not alone, lovely. Being mum is mentally and emotionally challenging. I struggled so much in my first year, especially the first 6 months when I was so sleep deprived. I couldn't think straight and I was pretty much a walking zombie.
I had no time to myself, not even time to shower, let alone time to wash & dry my long hair! Everything I took for granted felt like such a luxury. Quiet time to myself, freedom to go wherever I wanted to go, whenever I desired. The transition into motherhood wasn't as easy as I thought. It was by far the most challenging time of my entire life. I wished I had someone cheering me on as I embarked on this new journey. As I busied myself with giving all my attention to my daughter, I realised I completely neglected my own heath & wellbeing. My cup was empty.
It was not until when I realised daily self-care was necessary that I slowly started to come out of this survival state. What saved me was the practice of yoga & mindfulness. So many mums put themselves at the bottom of the list but this has to stop! You're the only person who can take care of you, beautiful. I've been helping hundreds of mums find calm & peace in the midst of chaos and madness and I'd love to help you too.
Let me show you what I've created!

Hello, lovely mama :-) I'm a Yoga Australia registered teacher and I've been practising yoga for 12 years, teaching for 6 years. I'm also a mum and got a 4-year old daughter so I know how chaotic & messy it can be to be a mum and looking after little people!
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've helped hundreds of mums, kids & young families transform their lives through yoga & mindfulness and I'd love to be a part of your wellness & motherhood journey, too. Let me be your biggest cheerleader and let's do this together!
“Throughout the course I enjoyed the feeling of relaxation after the 30 minutes class...it was a great quick way to “stop and breathe” during my chaotic day. Poses were simple yet satisfying, and Chika was very attentive. An access to the replay videos is a bonus! It was lovely to meet other mums and practice together from home :)”
Juri, mother of 2 boys working full-time
"Chika is motivated at helping mothers to make yoga and mindfulness part of everyday practice for a calm and centred body and mind. She is generous at imparting her experiences and advice to new mothers. The yoga poses are easy enough to do again outside of class and the recordings of the classes also make it easy to continue yoga in your own time. She has also shown different types of yoga including breathing techniques, yoga nidra and yin and how to use props in everyday life through the course. It has motivated me to continue to stretch when I have a spare few minutes while my infant is playing or sleeping and to keep healthy during this time when going out is difficult."
Ursula, mother of an infant boy
"Being a mother of 3 young children and working full-time, I always struggle to find some time for myself. Chika’s 30-minute online yoga sessions fit perfectly in my busy calendar. They give me a chance to slow down and listen to my body and soul without the need to leave the house. After each session, I feel relaxed and recharged. Chika is always very generous with her time and offers plenty of advice on how to nurture yourself despite the business of the daily life. I highly recommend her classes to everyone, not only mums!"
Chiara, mother of 3 primary school aged children, working full-time
"Chika’s online classes have been very educational and she is a very inspiring teacher. For a mum, the shorter class times make for a much easier commitment from home. Having more frequent classes and the replays available serve as a good reminder to keep up a regular yoga practice."
Lauren, a mother of a toddler
Frequently Asked Questions
I have a newborn baby who cries and needs my attention 24/7! Is this course suitable for me?
You’re in the right place as long as you’re at least 6 weeks postpartum
(8-week if you had a caesarean birth) and received approval from your GP to recommence general exercise. Many mums try to time the baby’s nap time so they can attend the class by themselves, but babies are welcome in the class. Please note that this is not a mums & bubs yoga course. The focus is on you – beautiful mama. And the great thing is that you don’t need to worry about how your baby’s going to behave in the class. We have everyone’s microphone unmuted at the beginning and at the end of the class so we can say hello and goodbye and address any questions. Once I start teaching, however, everyone’s microphone will be muted, so any noise your baby makes is NOT going to interrupt the class.
I don’t have a newborn but I’m a busy mum trying to find a balance between work and family life.
Yes, this course is perfect for you. Many mums who work from home take advantage of their lunch time break to attend the class. The course isn’t specifically designed for new mums or first-time mums. It’s designed for any mums who desire to reduce stress, find more calm and be a happier & healthier version of them.
I’m pregnant. Can I sign up?
This program is not specifically designed for pregnant women, so there would be poses that are not suitable for you especially if you’re in your 2nd or 3rd trimester. I highly recommend you organise a private online session with me – called Calm & Active Birth.
I’ve never done yoga before. Is the course suitable for me?
Yes, it’s suitable for all levels including beginners. I encourage you to listen to your body and avoid any poses if you feel any pain. Not all poses might be suitable for everyone. This is the opportunity to honour your unique body and do poses that make you feel good.
How do I join the live classes?
Classes are held live on zoom and joining the class on zoom platform is the best way as we can see each other and have a direct verbal communication. Each class will be streamed via Facebook Live as well so you can join the class inside a designated Facebook group if you prefer, but you can only communicate with me via written comment.
What happens if I miss a live class?
All classes will be recorded and the access to the replay will be available inside a designated Facebook group. The group will be archived on 30th September 2020, but you will be able to continue accessing the replays. You will also receive 3-months access to an online course platform and you can download all the recorded videos on your computer. Once downloaded, you will have unlimited access.
Is this a mums & bubs yoga course where I learn how to do yoga with my baby?
No, the focus of each class is on you and there are mums who have older kids – toddlers, pre-schoolers and primary schoolers. There will be some poses where baby can be incorporated and if so, I can give additional instructions.
How long can I access the course content for?
You will be able to access the recordings for unlimited time through a designated Facebook group. You can also download the videos on your computer via online course platform for 3 months and after the download, you can continue to access the videos without restrictions.
Do I receive personalised attention or have my questions answered in this program?
Yes, I offer a 15-minute welcome call on zoom prior to the start of the course so you can ask me all the questions during this time. I also take questions at the beginning and at the end of each class.
What if I'm not happy with the course?
If the tools shared in this program didn’t help you release muscular tension in your body or didn’t help you cultivate a calm, relaxed state of mind, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 4th September 2020 and we will refund your investment. We will NOT provide refunds after 4th September 2020.
