The Fitness Team
Hodari Akida has been teaching yoga since 2012 after completing his 200RYT training in Colorado USA. Having taught at several reputable studios and having taken many yoga workshops across the United States, Hodari considers his time on the yoga mat as his single most valuable self-investment.
His words about Singita and his practice are full of his trademark authentic energy; “After entering the doors of Singita Wellness when I moved back to Barbados in 2020, I knew everything I had previously encountered led me to that moment. The synergy between the Singita fitness staff and clientele was too inspiring and encouraging to not get involved and immersed. I am delighted to also have my offering of sound healing with quartz crystal bowls and gongs welcomed into the space at Singita Wellness.
My teaching style is light hearted and communal. I like to focus on alignment, while using intuitive anatomy cues to help yogis increase body awareness and keep their thoughts present. I have a particular love for inversions and arm balances, but I also strive to keep my classes accessible to yogis at any level.”
Jo Hamilton brings a focus to alignment in her wonderful weekend yoga classes, “I have been practicing yoga for over 6 years; my personal yoga journey has helped me to grow stronger, more flexible and more confident as an individual. Although I began practising yoga mainly to increase strength and flexibility, my yoga practice now inspires me to live each moment mindfully and remain calm in stressful situations. Yoga has become a way of life and enables me to feel free, balanced and fulfilled, consequently, I am passionate about sharing the physical and mental benefits of a regular yoga practice with the Barbadian community.
I understand that yoga can be very intimidating for many people so I aim to break the stereotype by making every pose accessible to everybody. Persons usually leave classes feeling relaxed, energized and a little lighter than they came. My classes are a mixture of challenging, relaxing and inspiring.”
