About Trini Yoga

Trini Yoga was founded by Suzanne Pinkney in 2019 with a vision of creating a space where a yoga community could grow. 'Trini' (pronounced tree-nee) is Sanskrit for 'three'. It is a reference to 'mind, body, and soul', 'Tristana' in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, and also the fact we are near the Three Counties border.

We endeavour to provide high quality teaching to all out students and limit class sizes so we are confident we can provide safe, enjoyable classes.

Our Values

 

Be authentic- we acknowledge the roots of Yoga in the Indus Valley, its ties to Hinduism and Buddhism, and passing of knowledge through the lineages (Parampara).

Provide quality teaching- all our teachers are highly qualified and experienced, they continue their professional learning by attending classes with their teachers and completing Continuing Professional Development courses regularly, in line with their governing body.

Promote diversity- we are proud to teach anyone who would like to learn more about yoga, irrespective of age, religion, body shape, gender identity, sexuality, ethnicity, fitness, and anything else you can think of!

Support the mental and physical health of students- Yoga is about the union of mind and body, physical and mental health are equally important, students can discuss their health in confidence with teachers, we are here to support you.

Provide a safe environment- the studio is cleaned regularly, temperature checks are carried out at the entrance, we have up-to-date Risk Assessments and Emergency Action Plans, the site is accessed by a secure gate, and the outside door locked during classes. As well as this, the studio is a safe space for students to be themselves, participate in classes safely, and choose whether to receive physical adjustments or not.
