Anna Haddad is a yoga instructor, sound practitioner, retreat leader, and the Founder + CEO of ONEYOGAHOUSE, a New York-based yoga studio with locations in Brooklyn and pop ups in Montauk. She has been a student of yoga since 2000, when she found the practice as a complement to her taekwon-do training. Yoga quickly became the one thing in her life that allowed her to tune in instead of out: at the time, she was working a demanding job in finance. Led by her intuition to open her heart and awareness, she left her job on Wall Street and completed her 200-hour teacher training at Pure Yoga in 2012.
Always drawn to entrepreneurship, Anna co-founded a grassroots activewear company in 2014, followed by a yoga studio in Montauk in 2017. Now, her vision for ONEYOGAHOUSE (in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn) is to create a business rooted in community, creativity, and connectivity, and to leave a lasting and positive impact on people’s lives. She is passionate about giving back: she loves connecting with students, community-based organizations, charities, and female-owned businesses. She aims to make yoga accessible and a lifelong practice for everyone in the ONEYOGAHOUSE community.
Anna has completed over 1,000 hours of teacher trainings and mentorships with Katonah Yoga, Yogi Charu, David Shamesh (Sound Meditation) Lyt, Maya Yoga, Woom Center, Yoga Vida, and Pure Yoga, and continues her studies and trainings in functional anatomy and meditation. She is a lululemon Ambassador, Sakara Life Ambassador, and Garmin Sweat Leader.
Taking inspiration from Katonah, Hatha, Nada, and Vinyasa Yoga, Anna’s yoga classes are intentional, grounding, and thoughtfully sequenced with intention setting, breath work, joint mobility, lymph work, and anatomy-based teachings to gently open the body in preparation for meditation. Through her own practice she has discovered a calm, resilient, and conscious state of mind that is still and compassionate, and she is inspired to guide others to the same place in her teaching. Anna leads yoga retreats around the world, combining her love for travel with teaching movement and meditation, all while helping others realize their goals. She also teaches corporate yoga, special events and offsites, and private sessions.
Join Anna for her Sound Therapy + Meditation sessions facilitated by overtone-emitting instruments such as shruti box, gongs, singing bowls, chimes, drums, etc to down-regulate the nervous system, create a sense of ease and clarity, and reach higher levels of joy, peace, and consciousness.
