Yin Yoga & Meridians Teacher Training
Finding the balance you need
about the training
This training draws on the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, Yoga & Buddhist philosophy, yoga anatomy, and your intuition for a one-of-a-kind transformative journey. In this training, you will learn the exercise theory of Yin yoga, the twelve regular Meridians, an introduction to the eight extraordinary Meridians, the flow of Qi (or energy), up to 25 most vital acupressure points to release tension, increase flexibility, and soothe body pains. Moreover, we will apply knowledge from Western anatomy and recent research on fascia, to compile an approachable method to bring health and wellness to our body.
A big part of Yin practice is self-inquiry: our deep desire to get to the roots of our own suffering. Let it be sadness, attachments, desires, anger, and worries. You will practice meditation daily and learn different techniques such as sound healing and Qi Gong to find tranquility in the mind.
A great Yin teacher is one who can hold space for the others. The ability to guide students using minimal words or through fascinating storytelling, a skilled Yin teacher is a guide to somebody’s inner exploration. You’ll discover in this training, how to tap into your students’ emotions and take them on a journey that might just change them, forever.
I’m a professional nomad with a serious passion for yoga, life, and Kung-Fu movies. An experienced yoga educator and practitioner, I’ve spent the majority of my time traveling and teaching yoga teacher training. Although I practice daily dynamic forms of yoga, my true love goes to Yin yoga. A martial artist once told me, “A true master is someone who is kind but dangerous.” To me, Yin yoga is my true master. Let not be fooled by the gentle Yin façade. For those who have experienced and have gone deep into this practice would know that- Yin is not for the faint of heart.
Essentially, I offer a unique Yin yoga teacher training that emphasizes on applying the practice as a way to delve into our inner self. To go inward means checking in with our vulnerability and peeling away any pretense and conditioning. Eventually (or hopefully), through Yin yoga, we can expand our limited beliefs and become our own inspiration. I believe in finding out what spiritual freedom means to you in your own unique way. But to do that, we must sum up the courage to step on the mat, even with tears and all.

Annie's yin yoga teacher training was a great experience for me and by far surpassed my expectations. She is a very skillfull, authentic and transparent teacher who takes what she does very seriously. With her holistic training she created a safe container and held space to not only learn about yin yoga but also go deep within, through a very profound process of self inquiry and transformation on a physical, emotional and spiritual Level. I came out feeling more whole and with my inner spark burning again. I loved everything about this training!

My yin yoga training with Annie was nothing short of spectacular. I completed her 50hr program in Sri Lanka as part of my 300hr ytt and she totally make me fall in love with the practice of yin. Annie is a naturally gifted teacher and the way she presented the vast amount of knowledge she has on the subject made me eager to learn, excited to get on my, and empowered to share with others. Plus she is so sweet, kind, and understanding in the learning process. I would trust Annie with any training she decides to teach and I highly recommend learning from her if you get the chance!
Olga Gonzalez- USA
I have taken the 50hr TT with Annie this past month (Jan-Feb/2018) in Sri Lanka, and I can't be more grateful for that. A yoga teacher, for me, is more than a person who teaches you asanas or techniques, a yoga teacher is a person who transmits experiences, thoughts, vibrations... and life. Annie is a devoted teacher with tons of knowledge to share and help you grow as a practitioner on and off the mat. Thanks to this, I feel so prepared to be a teacher now! I definitely recommend taking classes and trainings with her. Life changing!
