Sharing ways to cultivate higher levels of awareness, tools for and practice in self-abidance in daily life, concentration, and the cultivation of inspiration on the path is an essential part of my personal dharma practice. My fundamental passions are the spiritual and meditative aspects of Yoga. I draw from essential, personal teachings of the Tibetan techniques of mind training and meditation learned from masters in Nepal and Tibet; India Vedanta; and the insight and experiences I have directly received from meditation masters, yoga teachers, life in Asia, and personal practice. This human life is precious and meditation and Yoga are the wisest most ancient tools we have to guide us deeper into the invaluable treasure of truly knowing our self, and learning how to fully radiate our natural state - that of unmeasured love and compassion.

I've pursued the art of yoga and meditation as both student and teacher, with advanced yogis and meditation masters around the world for more than 15 years. Yoga asana classes with me are strengthening to the core, balancing, harmonizing, energizing and more - meeting each student exactly where they are on their path, at any level and helping them cultivate energy and inspiration to continue the journey. My spiritual adventures have led me to Tibet, China, Mongolia, Nepal, India, Mexico, Thailand and Indonesia - always seeking the jewel of Yoga, the heart center of all spiritual self-abidance and meditation.

I have taught in Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, China, Tibet, Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia and the US; and now teach yoga asana and meditation classes and retreats most of the year in Tulum Mexico. I also edit sacred and spiritual texts and books; sacred translations from Tibetan and Chinese texts; and co-auther and edit yoga, meditation and pranayama teaching manuals and books.

knowledgeable and Authentic

Annette has such a pure, friendly and authentic way of sharing her knowledge of yoga. Its obvious that she has quite a bit of experience with both yoga and meditation, and the only way to describe her way of teaching is intelligent and sincere. You feel completely safe in her company to explore yoga in its most authentic form. You can tell that Anette has many years of experience both as a student and teacher. I find her classes to be transformative. Anette is one of those people you just want to be around!

Yoga with Annette is pure bliss. From the very moment you enter her warm and compassionate presence you can feel the depths of yoga she has touched. Highly skilled in alignment, sequencing and with a wealth of background in both yogic and buddhist approaches to mindfulness, she interweaves the physical and spiritual dimensions with effortless ease.

Strong and Centered! Simple, Graceful and Effective.

Annette is one of the strongest and most centered yoga teachers I've ever had the privilege of learning from. There's a sense of calm and formidability in herSelf and her instruction, as well as a subtle playfulness in the creativity of her sequences. You really get a sense that she walks the talk! Her meditation practice is super strong as well as wicked sense of humor, also contributing to rich experience of her classes. No fluff. Simple and effective. And I learn something new and fun every time!

Heart of Gold

Annette is a beautiful person and teacher. I was privileged to attend her classes in Thailand and Mexico. She was the assistant at my teacher training in Koh Phangan and I was able to take some of her classes in Tulum, Mexico. She is a great teacher and intuitively meets each student at their experience level. She is very loving and has a calming energy about her, making everyone who's around her feel comfortable. She teaches a very dynamic class, including, mindfulness, meditation, and pranayama. I love you Annette! You are the best!
