I really enjoyed Annie's teaching style. She is both knowledgeable and humble. My expectations were definitely met. I'm ready to deepen my practice. One of the highlights from the training was doing Qigong with Word on the beach. I would recommend this training to my friends and yoga teachers back home.

I had such an incredible experience on this yoga teacher training. It was incredible and some of the things I experienced were so unexpected. The physical release in the postures was amazing but I didn't expect my emotional side to rise to the surface and deepen my spiritual understanding either. Thank you so much Annie and Word,

I absolutely loved this training. I have been looking for a training that combines yin with the Chinese meridians system for awhile and couldn't be happier with the training Annie and Word created. Their knowledge really impressed me and both have so much to share and offer. I highly recommend this training. Word has so much knowledge to share and Annie is great at teaching her students with such an empathetic and fun approach. I'm so grateful for this experience.

My teacher training experience was as gorgeous as the pamphlet. This Sayulita 100hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training was a perfect blend of relaxation and education. I highly recommend it if you are looking to deepen your physical practice and learn how to integrate Chinese philosophy and healing into your life.

Annie and Word created an amazing course blending together yin yoga and Chinese Qi Gong. If you're interested in taking your yin to the next level- seriously, especially with Word's incorporation of Qi Gong, meridians, and vast knowledge- don't hesitate! Annie is a kind and patient teacher in both yoga practice and theory. I loved the time I got to spend with them in Mexico.
