This was my first yoga teacher training, so I wasn’t sure of what to expect gong in but this course exceeded any expectation that I had. I feel that my time and money was well spent and I was left with so much information, knowledge and practical skills to take home with me.
Furthermore I felt that the days were well spaced out with sufficient break times in between both the practices and lectures. I understand the time constraints of this course and that there is only time for an overview / introduction to TCM, acupressure, qi gong, the meridians, Etc but I appreciate what we were able to cover and I am definitely interested in perusing more knowledge, classes and workshops opportunities in these areas in the future ( Yin yoga teacher training Part 2 ? )
Overall I had a fantastic experience. Thank you !

Its not often ( unfortunately ) that you get to hangout with someone who really practices what they preach. Annie is teacher and practitioner of both Buddhist teachings and Karma and being around her joyful and happy sprit was infectious. We all leave Sayulita kinder and more open-hearted.

Annie helped me redfine the concept of teacher. She is so strong and yet so opent o her students that I always felt I could speak to her about anything. She has a way of making her teaching so relatable and practical. I have learnt a lot from her, which I am thankful for and hope to attend another course with her in the future.

I fell in love with Yin Yoga in Annie’s classes. She brought my yoga practice to the next level. Annie is a big inspiration for me and I love to learn more from her huge bank of knowledge. I love her sense of humour, creativity and the effective way of teaching complex subjects such as anatomy, Chinese medicine, and philosophy. I will definitely join more trainings with her- she is an amazing and inspiring person!

Alice Zarka- USA
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!
