Offerings For Ultimate Freedom Yoga Workshops with Troy Hadeed
Saturday October 6th 2018 - Imperial Rooms Matlock UK
I am very excited to bring to the beautiful Derbyshire Dales an international teacher who has inspired my practice over the last year in a huge way. So much so that when I found out there might be a chance that Troy would be within a few hundred miles of the UK I had to try and bring him up here to teach his teachings and spend time with our yoga community in the Midlands. And that wish has been granted! After a few back and forth dates I’m incredibly honoured to say that Troy Hadeed from Trindad (Gaia.com) is coming to teach 2 workshops on Saturday October 6th 2018 in our beautiful town of Matlock, Derbyshire.
Troy was born in Trinidad & Tobago, which is pretty much where he has spent the majority of his life aside from attending university in Tampa, FL, and his stints of travel, exploration and study.
Through commitment to his practice and study, Troy has tapped into a depth of practice that transcends the physical form of Asana. In his teaching he intends to bring practitioners into a new relationship with their breath as a form of Spirit, thereby having the practice embody a personal Prayer.
Troy views the science of yoga as a personal practice and one's own journey of self-discovery. For that reason he is continuously aiming 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 Troy’s teaching brings a fresh and powerful dimension into today’s yoga class that helps bridge the gap between the pure essence of Yoga and todays disconnected world. At the foundation of Troy’s 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.
Troy studies the linage of Krishnamacharya under the guidance of Ryan Leier and has been blessed with the inspiration of amazing teachers, including: Seane Corn, Father Joe Pereira (Iyengar Yoga), Baron Baptiste, Srivatsa Ramaswami (Vinyasa Krama), Leslie Kaminoff, Jess Robertson, and Ted Grand…among others.
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.
There will be a morning session and an afternoon session at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock where Troy will be taking us through two of his main workshop themes:
Morning session 10am to 12 Midday £30 per person or £50 for both sessions per person (non-refundable)
Magic Have you ever wondered what makes Yoga a spiritual practice? What about the practice of life? Our disconnected manner of living has also entered our yoga practice, and it is now time to bring the Magic back. In this workshop Troy will share some of his most transformative moments on and off his mat and explain how they connected some of the dots between, his life, his spiritual beliefs’, and his practice. We will ask ourselves some truly fundamental questions and spend time looking at the anatomy of the breath and our relationship to it. Together, we move through a powerful breath-focused vinyasa practice and begin to reconnect the dots towards a deeper relationship to our practice, our life, and Spirit; A relationship where Magic is real and cannot be denied. (2 hrs | 90 min practice, 30 min lecture)
Afternoon session 13.30pm to 15.30pm £30 per person or £50 for both sessions per person (non-refundable)
Re-connecting to Spirit In a world where there is so much emphasis on what divides us we will use our Asana practice to re-connect to the powers that unite us. Through slow, mindful movement we create a new relationship to breath and Spirit while asking the question, “What truly is Yoga? & More importantly, how do we create it?” You can expect a challenging and grounded vinyasa practice that holds the relationship to breath as its foundation. This all-level practices will leave you frustrated or humbled at times, powerful and strong, or deeply moved and inspired as we create the Space for Spirit to move through not just our practice, but our lives. We will aim to understand that it is not enough merely to inhale and exhale, much like it is not enough to simply take the shape of a posture; but that the deeper power lies in being present to our relationship to the practice, the posture, and the breath. This class encourages self-reflection & self –discovery; be prepared to take the long journey back to you. (2 hrs)
