What is a Boutique Yoga Studio you ask?
Think small sized intimate classes! Even if only one person shows up, we have class and our largest room holds up to 18 people (21 with a tight squeeze *wink*). We also offer private yoga and Pilates instruction that further allow us to work on a personal and much more effective basis than yoga found at big box gyms and even many of our other local studios. This gives our instructors the ability to give greater attention to our students’ needs with regards to their practice.
We believe in yoga for the Western/Caribbean body, and that enhances our lifestyle. We place equal importance on promoting mindfulness, alignment, strength and flexibility.
In a welcoming and supportive environment, we work with those who have never practiced yoga before to seasoned practitioners. Our exceptional yoga staff has an immense range of trainings and knowledge in varying styles of yoga practices, including Aerial, Yin, Vinyasa, SUP Yoga, Kundalini and Meditation. As well as knowledge and trainings in other styles of movement from Belly Dance, Pilates and Resistance Training to Capoeira and Tai Chi. And finally we have staff with knowledge and trainings in Wellness like Reiki.
We are located in St. Clair – a high-end residential neighbourhood that is away from the crowds, but very convenient to city highlights and highly accessible from all directions and all modes of transportation – in really cool building now known as Trinity Scott! The building was in fact designed by Anya Ayoung Chee’s (winner of Project Runway 9) uncle – Michael Jodhan. It looks nothing like the other houses in the area. The architecture is considered unique in T’n’T. It feels upscale and having been built on land in an area with houses that date as far back as 1935, the combined historic environment, the chic elegance of the building with its sleek lines, the building has a very distinctive vibe! It’s contemporary and homey all at once.
We are not affiliated with any major chain and are independently owned.
One could say that we have a very eccentric personality at The Sangha Trinidad. We are fun and tend to have quirky sense of humour…laughing in class is ah must! We have a very interesting class offering, each class complementing the other. And we love to meet before and after classes…you could even find us sucking oranges or eating watermelon around the front desk. We try to have amazing workshops with both local and international instructors AND we train our instructors in-house with The amazing Sangha Trinidad Yoga 500hr Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training, going 7 years strong!
Our service – highly personalized service! All our instructors know your name and we try to create a very high-quality, individualized experience in all our classes!
And finally, our clientele is very mixed, ranging from Boomers and Gen X to Millennials and Gen Z, men and women, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, white collar, blue collar, all the colours of the rainbow, all shapes, sizes, heights and more!
That my friends, is what a Boutique Yoga Studio is!!!
Come on over, you will love us! *pinky swear*
