Laura Kathryn - USA

I absolutely adored this yin yoga teacher training! It was the right amount of challenge combined with unconditional support and comfort from day 1. Every class stood out in its own way and each of the elements we learned tied together giving us a wide range of variety to bring to our yin yoga classes. My favourite part was learning about the tradition Chinese medicine because it helped me learn a new perspective on the human body. I would highly recommend this training as you learn a lot not only about yin yoga but also about yourself. You’re in a safe, loving environment the entire time and this training is something I will hold close in my heart as well as pass along to others. 💕

Nathalie Gou - France

I just graduated from Annie’s Yin Yoga Teacher Training with ExhaleYogaRetreat in February! It was my first ever teacher training and it was an amazing experience! Annie brought in to each class all of her knowledge and added many personal stories which added lots of depth to her teaching. I really enjoyed learning about Qi and karma and chanting mantras at sunset! I am so excited to go back home and share everything I have learned. Annie was more than a teacher to me, she was a beautiful inspiration. I am so grateful to have been part of this transformational journey. I would definitely recommend this yin YTT.
