Michaela is a qualified 95hr Children’s & Teens Yoga Teacher (US Yoga Alliance). She is also certified with Contemporary Yoga (200hr IYTT), Samadhi Family Yoga, Rainbow Yoga in both Childrens’ and Partner Yoga and in Yin Immersion with Joe Barnett.
Her mission is to empower as many loving adults as possible to share their own ‘Yoga magic’ with their tamariki and in doing so, help the next generation deal with challenges and navigate life on this magnificent planet!
Michaela has also gained an honours degree in architecture and a post-grad scholarship at the Fine Arts HdK university in Berlin, has sung with the NZ opera, opened the Berlin Australasian film festival as a singer-songwriter and has had 20 children’s books published internationally as an illustrator.
All of which means that she needs to do a daily down dog. Her greatest joy: being mum to Isla, b. 2004!
Since 2012, Michaela has taught kids, family and teen yoga in Devonport, Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Titirangi, at numerous schools and preschools around Auckland and at Yoga festivals and events.
Dancing, Singing, Acting, Illustrating and Writing
Michaela is great at both! Add to this her wonderful voice and creative thinking and you have a yoga class that is fun, highly imaginative and leaves kids in a really positive and relaxed state.
