Teachers 2018


Troy HadeedTT

vinyasa yogabreath

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 today’s 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 lineage 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.

Boris GeorgievAT

ashtanga yogacreativityacro yoganatural movement

Born in 1972 in Bulgaria, Boris began yoga as a child, learning more about the spirit and heart of yoga during his teenage years practising with his Bulgarian teacher Venzislav Eftimoff. Later, in Vienna, he continued to expand his understanding of yoga as a multi-faceted path to support happiness and balance in the modern world working with the holistic Sivananda yoga method. It was in the Sivananda ashram in South India that Boris met Lino Miele who inspired him to work with the Aṣṭāṅga Vinyasa Yoga method. From 1995, this modality became more and more the principal frame for Boris’ asana practice as he continued studying with Michel Besnard and Andrea Morava.
In 2000, Boris founded the Yoga center Ganesha, where he teaches mainly aṣṭāṅga yoga and AcroYoga®. Besides his many years of personal practice, Boris’ teaching is also informed by his four year course study for psychological self-awareness (Primal Therapie - Munk), Spiraldynamic® anatomy, and AcroYoga.

Leonardo PiccoIT


Leonardo's bodywork is holistic, focused on calling forth a healing response. Almost 20 years he works through reflexology and from 2014 his massage practice is enriched by Thai massage.
Leonardo works from the heart, allowing each person to be more connected to their body, more aware of the energies working around and within their being. In 2010 he tried Bikram yoga for the first time and got fascinated immediately. This fascination inspired him to leave for India and took a 900 hours TTC in Hatha yoga in 2013. The practice helps him to develop body awareness, a sensitivity that enables him to feel people's pain, and the bliss experience when their pain disappears.
