Annie’s style is unique and no class is the same. In her classes, Annie blends her learning’s from Raja Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, taking students through not just movement but a discovery of the meaning of asana through a mix of mythology, story telling and metaphor. Now living in Bendigo and the Northern Rivers Region of NSW Annie contributes regularly to the Starlight Yoga Festivals.
