Our Teachers

Troy Hadeed

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.


I believe that the practice of yoga transcends the physical postures and deepens our relationship to our mind, our breath, and our personal understanding of God. My intention is to share a depth of practice that embodies a form of prayer and allows every practitioner to connect to something beyond the physical aspects of the practice. I aim continuously to create a space that is accessible to all—regardless of their faith, age, or physical limitations.

With mindful, intentional movements I 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—this is where we discover Genuine Love.

I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Yoga Teacher. I have been blessed with the opportunity to study with Ryan Leier, Troy Hadeed, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Seane Corn and continue to learn from everyone who is courageous enough to step onto their mats.

I believe that as you practice yoga regularly, this subtle sense of ‘feeling good’ gradually grows into something so natural that it becomes rooted in your lifestyle. It begins to influence the way you think, what you say, how you react to situations, and how you show up in the world. This amazing practice has the power to bring clarity, restore optimism, and reconnect us to the purpose of life itself. My goal is to emphasize the healing power of the breath through our committed & mindful relationship to it. 

I believe that when mindfulness, compassion and empathy are present, transformation happens exponentially. With the incorporation of yoga into my life, I have never felt better in my mind, body and soul— I hope to inspire you to do the same!

Yoga is a continued union and relationship between breath, body and mind.   It can help cultivate peace and compassion for ourselves and others.  

Yoga has been a part of my life for over 30 years.  My first began to deepen my study of yoga in 1996  at the Sivananda Ashram in Southern India—then I got certified as a teacher with Trinity Yoga Vancouver in 2007.  My experience as a teacher of  Dance, Yoga and Meditation have all helped me broaden my knowledge of the body and mind while expanding my perspective of what the practice of yoga can be.  

In my own practice, I love to be upside down and playful. A Canadian born World Citizen that fell in love with Trinidad and decided to make it home.  Besides teaching I express my self with art, choreography, music and the occasional delicious cookie.

Doreen Hamelsmith

As yoga practitioner for the last 12 years, my experience through my practice has brought me immense joy, has transformed my personal philosophy, and has inspired me to be of service wherever I can.  Every opportunity to teach yoga facilitates an aspect of my very own healing and gifts me new opportunities to assist others with their healing. Emerging from personal experience of motherhood, I also support women as a Prenatal Yoga teacher, a certified Doula, and Placental Encapsulator. In all of the modalities of my service I create space for the intimacy and intention of breath, an understanding I have gained through my yoga practice—and to which I am forever grateful.

“Yoga creates stability and unity in all aspects of my life, whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Amongst many things, yoga teaches me patience, trust and balance.”

 

My love of yoga began after being introduced to it by my mom in 2012. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Rollins College in Florida, I went on to complete my 200-hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) training with Yandara Yoga, in Baja, Mexico (2015). I then went on to complete my 85 hours as an RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) at the Yoga Garden San Francisco in California (2016). 

In my vinyasa and prenatal classes, one can expect to be invigorated and inspired whilst building strength through mindful movement and breath work. Through my yin classes, a slower paced practice, one will experience a sense of relief and relaxation, as well as a strong connection to both mind and body. As a teacher, my aim is to highlight the benefits of yoga and encourage my students to embrace their own unique style of practice, whilst taking what they learn on their mats and applying it to their daily lives.

Asha Wadada

I started my journey 4 years ago but yoga has been an influential part of my life for the last decade. My practice aids me in remaining focused and steady, while at the same time keeping me physically, mentally and emotionally balanced. It has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and certainly more carefree, on and off my mat. Yoga is my physical form of prayer, and has helped me deepen my relationship to myself.

I completed my 200 hr training, with One Yoga in Victoria BC, but I am forever a student of the practice, learning from everyone I encounter within, and outside of the yoga world.

In my classes I combine a sweet, but sweaty vinyasa flows with soothing heartbeat rhythms, while allowing you the space to go inward. My intention is that with every practice you leave your mat feeling refreshed, nurtured and balanced.”
