Practicing yoga for more than 20 years and feeling its benefits on every level, Michaela loves to share her knowledge with others. Born in Austria, she has lived in several countries, and gathered extensive experience in over 20 years of working with clients from all over the world. By bringing body, breath and mind together, she assists students in not only finding focus and calmness on the mat but translating into equanimity in everyday endeavors. In this respect, her signature yoga flow classes are a good workout as well as a mental tune-up.

"Ibiza - Perfekte Auszeit im Herbst"
Exzellenter Kurztripp für den Herbst, perfekte Kombination aus Yoga & Tauchen. Unheimlich herzliche Betreuung durch Yoga Teacher. Viel Spaß, Lachen und sportliche Aktivität in einem Package auf der tollen Insel Ibiza im schönen Cala Llonga. Das Appartment war direkt am Strand und hatte Self Catering. Außerdem tolle Mitbewohnerin gehabt ;) Danke Jacqueline!

I just finished Teacher Training with Jacqueline Purnell in Ibiza. Already, I'm signed up for further training, coming back in two months for the Pre- and Postnatal Yoga course.
Why I chose Jacqueline? Having met her at a yoga retreat before, I already knew her as very knowledgeable, but also down to earth. Looking for a teacher to provide a thorough and grounded training, I was not disappointed. While training was intense, it was also a lot of fun. Jacqueline put special emphasis on our understanding the physiology of yoga, applying various teaching methods to cater to every type of learner. We all gathered extensive teaching practice during the three weeks. From the beginning on, we exercised applying the correct modifications for various physical conditions and assuring all levels had a safe and pleasant experience. Jacqueline provided a life changing experience in a breathtaking location. Through her as well as her assistant Lynn Ramsson's support I feel not only excited to start my career as a yoga teacher, but well prepared - with an intense hunger for more!
