Lindsay Hall was born in Canada raised on the island of Tobago, in Trinidad & Tobago. She started dancing at the age of 5 at the Tobago Academy of the Performing Arts. In 2008 Lindsay moved to New York City to pursue her love of dance and was accepted to the world-renowned Ailey School of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, where she studied under master teachers Milton Myers, Ana Marie Forsythe, Nancy Turano, Graciela Kozak, Kazuko Hirabyashi and Jacqulyn Buglisi. In May 2011 she became one of the first Tobagonians to graduate from The Ailey School’s Certificate Program. Her dance training includes Classical Ballet, Modern Dance, Contemporary, Jazz, Dancehall, Salsa, Hip Hop and Caribbean Folk Dance. As a dancer Ms. Hall has had the pleasure of performing at New York City Summer Stage, 2012 Ladies of Hip Hop Festival, Heard NY with artist Nick Cave in celebration of Grand Central’s 100th Anniversary, the LACOSTE La Machine L.12.12 Launch at Grand Central Station alongside Hip Hop legends Furious Five, Opening Ceremony’s Fashion Night Out event for NY Fashion Week Fall 2011 and with Jamaican Dancehall pioneers Red Fox and Screechy Dan. Over the years Lindsay has had the opportunity to perform works by some truly talented choreographers such as Darrell Grand Moultrie, Earl Mosley, Andrea Miller, Jessica Chen, Robin Dunn, Hanna Herbertson, Peter London, Francesca Harper, Bradley Shelver and Kevin Wynn to name a few. She also had the honor of being a member of dance companies throughout New York City, namely J CHEN PROJECT and Purelements: An Evolution in Dance. She has also been able to share her love of dance through teaching and has taught classical ballet and modern technique in both Trinidad and Tobago and New York City.
Throughout her career as a dancer in New York, Lindsay found herself being drawn to yoga more and more. She used yoga as a way to calm and focus her mind and to help keep her body strong and balanced so she could keep up with the demands of dancing professionally. In early 2014, Lindsay moved back to her home island Tobago, ready for a change of lifestyle. Upon her arrival she soon found out about The Sangha Trinidad’s Yoga Teacher Training Program with Director Karen Blackman and she immediately signed up! Digging deeper into the practice of yoga at this specific period in her life was definitely perfect timing for Lindsay and it was a truly enriching experience.
With over 4 years of teaching yoga under her belt, Lindsay still considers herself new, to the Yoga Instructor world, but with fresh ideas and a great love for the practice. She loves sharing and mixing what she knows as a dancer and what she has learnt throughout her yoga practice, with the vibes that come along with living near the sea. She is excited to share all that she knows with you and is open to whatever unfolds next on this journey we like to call life…
