Katje Brinckmann- Germany

This teacher training with Annie was my first training and it totally topped all of my expectations. Annie brought so much wisdom and experience into the training that I took far more home than how to teach yin yoga in general. With Annie's love and seemingly unstoppable thirst for knowledge about the body, mind and spirit, she made this journey a very special one for me.
