She is a certified Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher, Samadhi Family Yoga instructor and a trained 95hr Children’s & Teens Yoga Teacher (US Yoga Alliance).

Michaela has a background in dance, singing and acting and worked as a performer and recording artist in Berlin for many years. (Click here for articles) Prior to this, she gained a first-class honours degree in architecture, winning the NZ Institute of Architects Award and then a post-graduate DAAD scholarship to the HdK Fine Arts University in Berlin. Michaela is fluent in German and Italian.

Since returning to NZ and becoming a mum, Michaela’s passions have been practising lots of yoga, illustrating and writing children’s books – www.twinkle.co.nz – and creating and teaching imaginative yoga adventures for children and teachers.

Michaela is also the author/illustrator/director/narrator of a delightful interactive Storybook App “Princess No-I-Won’t” for iphone and ipad, available through iTunes worldwide. This story app has nothing to do with yoga directly … except perhaps that it deals with the discovery of the ego - ‘No! I won’t!’ - and shows how a stroppy princess learns that being open, friendly with good manners is a much better option!
