Anna
Haddad

Anna Haddad is a yoga + pilates instructor, sound practitioner, global retreat leader, and the Founder + CEO of ONEYOGAHOUSE, a New York-based yoga, pilates, and sound studio with locations in Brooklyn and pop ups in the Hamptons. She has been a student of yoga since 2000, when she found the practice as a complement to her black belt training in taekwon-do (she received her second degree black belt in 2004). 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 first of many teacher trainings in 2012.

Anna Haddad is a yoga teacher, entrepreneur, and the Founder and 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 2nd-degree black belt 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.

Anna has completed over 1,500 hours of teacher trainings and mentorships with Katonah Yoga, Lyt Yoga, Maya Yoga, Woom Center, David Shemesh, Savitri Yoga Shal with Yogi Charu, Yoga Vida, and Pure Yoga, and continues her studies in meditation. She is a lululemon Ambassador, Sakara Life Ambassador, and Garmin Sweat Leader.

Taking inspiration from Katonah, Hatha, Iyengar, and Vinyasa Yoga, Anna’s yoga classes are thoughtfully sequenced with intention setting, breath work, joint mobility, lymph work, and anatomy-based teachings to prepare the body for meditation. She teaches an alignment-focused practice that is intentional and grounding. 

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 reach higher inner states of joy, peace, and consciousness. Anna has led over 18 yoga retreats and workshops around the world, and partners with corporate and private clients. Follow her on Instagram @annahaddadyoga and @oneyogahouse.

Questions. Answers.

What makes a house a home?

When the space embodies how we live and how we want to feel—welcoming, comforted, reflective, happy, and secure. It is a thoughtful reflection of who we are and our values: authentic, thoughtful, genuine, creative, engaging, accepting, and loving.

Favorite Brooklyn Hang Out Spot

Our “backyard,” Brooklyn Bridge Park—it’s where my husband proposed, where we built our home together, where we got married, and most recently, where I built my second yoga studio with views of the Brooklyn Bridge, NYC skyline, and the Statue of Liberty. It represents beauty, freedom, abundance, opportunities, peace, and love.

When have you felt the most proud?

When I took a huge risk and left a profitable career on Wall Street to pursue my goal of working for myself. Despite feeling scared, I had faith that I would learn new skills, meet the right people along the way, and uncover my purpose and true nature. I see how courageousness showed up for me whenever I was faced with challenges, and a deep knowing that I was being groomed for something bigger guided me through some rough patches. It was important to me to encounter setbacks with integrity. To rise, but not at the expense of others. To make a genuine impact on the culture and community, with humility and grace.

What are you most passionate about outside of yoga?

Traveling and leading retreats around the world. I know this relates to yoga, but it’s really about taking myself and others outside of our comfort zones, connecting with people, building community, and recognizing that no matter our differences, there is more that ties us together, a shared humanity. It’s a sacred time, where all are encouraged to focus on simply being vs doing or achieving, where we are guided toward accessing a very conscious part of the mind that grasps the whole picture, embraces what is possible, and discerns what is genuine.
