More Testimonials for Michaela
School of Fish Childcare Centre, Onehunga
Thank you very much for a great day of lively learning. It was a fantastically well-run workshop, with great pace and a mix of hands-on and teaching that engaged and enthused us all!
It was wonderful that our learning was supported with a take-home manual, certificate and followed up with links to helpful resources, to continue our new-found yoga knowledge and share it with our children.
The teachers have been doing some wonderful storytelling yoga with the children – we have started to create some Christmas Yoga Stories now – ’tis the season! A huge thank you Michaela!
Tania Gibson, Christchurch librarian, Stretchme.co.nz
I loved my Storybook Yoga training with Michaela so much that I have attended it twice! This is such a practical course for librarians like myself, as well as ECE and primary teachers.
The creative yoga postures and breathing techniques really enhance my story-time sessions and enable pre-schoolers to participate in an active learning experience.
The engagement of both the children and caregivers in this imaginative, confidence-building style of storytelling further assists in creating young lovers of literacy. Thank you so much Michaela!

I was privileged to attend the Yogi Kids Storybook Workshop in Christchurch with Michaela. I was welcomed with a beaming big smile and felt completely comfortable from the beginning to the end as Michaela lead us through an extraordinary journey. Her professionalism and fun nature were with us all the way.
Her mesmerising and playful voice allowed me to release the inner child and lead me on a magical journey. I am extremely grateful for this fun and informative experience!
Thanks, Michaela and Yogi Kids!
