In the last few years One Yoga Trinidad has blossomed into a family, the BEYOND Yoga & Community. As a part of a beautiful collective family of One Yoga studios in Canada, One Yoga was first founded in Saskatoon Canada but was established in Trinidad by Troy Hadeed in 2012.
At One Yoga Trinidad we believe in slowing our practice down to reconnect to the power of our breath and using that meditation to quiet the mind and deepen our relationship to ourselves our individual understanding of Spirit, and ultimately to the world around us.
At One Yoga we believe in making the practice of yoga accessible to all regardless of age, gender, fitness, faith, opinions, intentions or status; There is no ‘wrong’ reason to begin a Yoga practice. Creating a safe space to cultivate loving and supportive community BEYOND the yoga mat is at the forefront of everything at One Yoga Trinidad.
While my Asana practice only began about 15 years ago I feel like the underlying teachings of “living yoga’ have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. In the last decade I have had the honor to further my study, practice, and teaching under the guidance of amazing teachers like Ryan Leier, Seane Corn, Father Joe Pereira (Iyengar Yoga), Baron Baptiste, Srivatsa Ramaswami (Vinyasa Krama), Leslie Kaminoff, Jess Robertson, and Ted Grand…among others. To these teachers, I bow in humility and gratitude.
Troy currently lives in a treehouse on the north coast of Trinidad & Tobago and is constantly being reminded that Prana (the life force that connects and flows through all life) is very real.
Through a commitment to my practice both on and off the mat with the guidance of these teachers, I feel I have discovered a depth of practice that transcends the physical form of Asana. I hope to share this discovery and guide practitioners into a new relationship with their breath as a form of Spirit, thereby having the practice embody a personal Prayer. I see the science of yoga as a personal practice and one’s own journey of self-discovery. For that reason, I aim continuously to create a space that is available and comfortable for all to practice, regardless of their faith, age, or physical limitations.
With mindful, intentional movements I hope to bring a fresh and powerful dimension to today’s yoga class that helps bridge the gap between the pure essence of Yoga and today’s disconnected world. At the foundation of my teaching is not the breath, but one’s relationship to the breath. In this we discover that no posture, no transition, no moment is ever the same; we discover what it means to live in the present moment, and finally, we remember what it means to live from a place of Genuine Love.

In this experience, you are not submerged, but floating as you would in an ocean or a pool. Due to the concentration of 1000 lbs of Epsom Salts, the density of the solution provides an environment where gravity is reduced and you float effortlessly.
The benefits of floating can include relief from insomnia, fatigue, jet lag, and stress while increasing immune function, blood circulation, stress resistance, pain management, creativity, mental clarity and brain stimulation. The practice of floating has also shown to deepen meditation, heighten visualization practices and help to reduce anxiety as well as combat depression.
In a world where we are bombarded with stimulation and noise it is very rare that we get the opportunity to take a break from both the direct and subtle stressors in our life. Take this opportunity to truly reset, rest, and Step Inside.
