THE MONTAUK BEACH HOUSE
The Montauk Beach House is situated in the heart of Downtown Montauk, and is a block from the Atlantic Ocean surf beaches and a short stroll to Montauk’s shops, restaurants, bars and cafés.
We are a boutique hotel with an active daytime environment and a comfortable, warm, chill-out-by-the-fire-with-friends vibe at night. A social gathering space to eat, drink, be relaxed, and make memories. The summer will find a laid-back East Coast vibe with great entertainment, special events, and unique offerings to fill our summer calendar with one common theme: “to show our guests a different path; a unique alternative to summers in Montauk.”
IN SEARCH OF BALANCE WHILE WORKING ON WALL STREET AND TRAINING FOR HER BLACK BELT IN TAE KWON-DO, ANNA HADDAD FOUND HER ESCAPE IN YOGA.
The practice gave her the courage to leave her life as a hedge fund executive and follow her dreams of becoming a yoga instructor and entrepreneur. Driven by her purposeful calling of making yoga fun and accessible, Anna discovered a passion for building brands rooted in community, creativity, and connectivity. With that in mind, in 2017 she cofounded her second startup, BYoga, a yoga studio in Montauk, NY, that helps others tap into yoga’s powerful and transformative influence. There, in addition to sharing her love of yoga as a teacher, she also curates fun music playlists to bring humor, joy, and good healing vibrations to each and every class. In the spring of 2018 the brand expanded with two Pop Up locations in East Hampton and NYC.
In what little spare time she has, she also teaches at Yoga Vida, Equinox Sports Club, and Facebook as well as one-on-one private and group sessions and corporate networking events. She has completed her trainings at Pure Yoga, Woom Center, and Yoga Vida. Deeply passionate about connecting with students, teachers, and small business owners, she is focused on creating positive and memorable experiences through yoga and stoking the fire that lives inside all of us to uncover our grit, be resilient, take risks, and encourage one another to live our dreams.
SARRAH LOVES YOGA. A LOT.LIKE A LOT A LOT.
To balance the repetitive damage of dancing on Broadway eight shows a week, yoga was suggested by her physical therapist. Over 12 years ago, the love affair began upon walking into a power flow class.
She quickly noticed that her body started to change, her dancing improved, and she was rarely at the physical therapy office. Most importantly, her mind started to quiet, and being a professional performer became much more manageable. The drama started to quiet and fade, and the joy shined through. Yoga truly became the thing that kept her going in a business made for short-lived careers. Miraculously, throughout her career of six Broadway shows, she has never sustained a major injury or even a pulled muscle.
When Modo Yoga NYC opened five years ago, she joined the community as a student. Struck by the balance of incredible teachers, environmental conservation, and community, she made the decision to embark upon their teacher training. A one-month window opened up in 2013, amidst creating the Broadway show, “Big Fish”, and it just happened to be the Moksha/Modo training month. It was divine timing and a sign that this was her path. She completed both the 500-hour and 100-hour flow trainings with Moksha International and has been a senior teacher at Modo Yoga NYC and Williamsburg for four years. She is also the lead teacher at Sweat Yoga NYC and a guide at Woom Center. She is certified to teach vinyasa, hatha, yin, and restorative.
