Hey I'm Annie. I've created Soulful Yin Yoga providing yoga teacher training and self-learning programs that focus on supporting your emotional healing & self-love journey through yin yoga.
'Finding happiness' was what prompted me onto my spiritual path. Nevertheless, after 10 years of chasing spirituality, I realized that there is no amount of meditation or yoga classes that can 'make' me happier. Happiness needs to come from within.
My personal healing journey has brought me to the practice of yin yoga and Chinese meridians. I've created a yin yoga formula that helps me tune to my feelings, regulate my nervous system and tap into my potential all while shedding my emotional baggages.
From my own self-healing success, I created Soulful Yin Method with the mission to help others connect with their emotions and become transformative yin yoga teachers.

"Soulful Yin Yoga Teacher Training is one of the best teacher trainings I have done. Annie is so insightful and her analogies and metaphors make for fun and interesting learning. The course is structured in a really beautiful way that makes sense and you can tell Annie has put her heart and soul into the content. I can not recommend this course highly enough. I'm so grateful to Annie for her wisdom and generosity."
- Gemma Cousins (UK)
"I have some students that just after a few sessions of Soulful Yin Yoga are able to unblock deep emotional obstacles and also initiate an awareness of their spiritual path and to be honest so did I whilst in the training with Annie. It is impossible not to feel something so transformative during her training and she is aware of this and very much prepared to accompany the journey of the student/yogi and teacher to be."
- Giorgiana (Dubai)
"Annie’s teachings are so professional, caring and inclusive with her sequential delivery of all modules of learning. She is an intelligent teacher with expert knowledge. The classes are accessible to all no matter. There are segments of student participation working in pairs or groups to practice the techniques as they’re being taught. By the time the course ended, all those segments seamlessly came together to form class templates. Brilliant! I’ve done many courses over the years, but this is one of the finest. Thank you Annie."
