Currently a yoga nomad, Annie travels around the world including Mexico, US, Canada, Thailand, and Bali teaching yoga.

Their training is a comprehensive integration of Daoism, Chinese medicine, and yoga philosophy.

Annie has certified over 200 yoga teachers worldwide. Specializing in yoga anatomy, Annie infuses anatomy knowledge in her yoga classes to help students practice more intelligently and avoid injuries. Annie can lead a dynamic class filled with inversions with a duality of restorative and healing sequences.
