  • Review by Paulina Aguilar from Jalisco México

    "I absolutely loved Annie's yoga teachings. I went to every class super exited to know what we would learn that night. I felt better physically and emotionally. I could feel how i got better every class, and left every night with my monkey mind a bit more settled than usual. I am very grateful that i got to learn so much from her classes."

  • Review by Karla Zamora from Jalisco México

    "I've spent the whole summer taking Annie's classes and I can conclude them as: Addictive! The classes are really demanding but fun, really good music beats and lot of laughs. Annie pushes me in every single class to my limits and urge me to try a little harder. Sometimes I was not sure if I will be able to walk the day after (just kidding!). After class, I usually feel very energetic, the class's vibration is amazing and I feel that my practice has improved a lot. After a summer of taking Annie's class and attending her Sayulita retreat I can just say: I love Dharma Yoga! I cannot thank Annie enough for sharing her knowledge, sense of humor, laughter, music playlists and compassion. Can't wait to have Annie again in Guadalajara!"

    "Annie is a highly engaging and skilled yoga teacher who meets students where they are to help them achieve their personal goals from the practice. Whether yin or Ashtanga, I always finished Annie's classes feeling motivated and relaxed, knowing that in her gentle way Annie had helped me fully in each moment, working at my edge whilst letting go of attachment to the outcome. From a personal perspective Annie has helped me transform aspects of my life, and I have observed the same happen with others. "

    "Annie made my teacher training! Her Yin classes bought so much awareness and presence. Her teaching style really embraced her gentle & caring nature. Yet her Vinyasa classes were one of the most challenging I had done ! With so much fire and energy. She is a true example of yin and yang, of balance which I really respect in a teacher. Can't wait to be a student again in her presence ! Thank you Annie for a wonderful experience. "

    "Annie was for me the perfect guide during the teacher training. Her amazing balance in Yin and Yang, in her teachings on and off the mat combined with her warm and down to earth personality showed me what it really is about as a yoga teacher, being vulnerable in sharing your experience, your passion, teaching from the heart but with a strong and steady theoretical foundation."
