Hey lovely mama!
Do you need a break from doing everything for everybody and ready to give yourself much needed me time? If your life is crazy and chaotic because of looking after an infant 24/7 or dealing with toddler tantrums & meltdowns or homeschooling your kid while working from home, it's more important than ever before to take care of the most important person - YOU!
Calm & Relaxed Mama
This course is currently OPEN!
If this sounds like you,
you're in the right place!
You feel tired and exhausted most of the time because of lack of sleep, interrupted sleep or having too much on your plate and not receiving enough help or trying to do everything on your own
You feel stressed out and overwhelmed. There's not enough time in your day and there's hardly any time to breathe or slow down.
Often times you're impatient and irritable. You're edgy and find yourself snapping at your kids and feel massive mum guilt for losing it and yelling at your kids afterwards.
Here's MY STORY
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.
It felt like I had no time to myself, not even time to shower, let alone time to wash & dry my long hair!
FYI - you can see that I ended up cutting my hair short from the picture of me sitting on the rock below! This was taken within the first 6 months of becoming a mama. I now have my long hair back as can be seen from the very top pic of me & my daughter and my bio pic further down on this page!
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 now show you what I've created!

Hello, lovely mama :-) I'm a Yoga Australia registered teacher and I've been practising yoga for 13 years, teaching for 7 years. I'm also a mum and got a 5-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, mother of a toddler, working full-time
" I was fortunate enough to win a scholarship to the Calm and Relaxed Mama Course in September 2020 and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn ways to incorporate some relaxation and time for myself during the busy day. Chika is very knowledgeable and has taught me amazing ways to stretch and relax. I have been using what she has taught me about stretching after each CrossFit class. This has helped my muscles to recover and has given me the balance I needed. I have also done some yin yoga when I have needed some relaxation. Thank you so much for the opportunity to learn these amazing tools, Chika ❤️"
Lisa, mother of two kids
