Hotpod Yoga Amsterdam

Founders

Mercedes Parellada

Mercedes was born in Buenos Aires, studied in London at The Royal Ballet School and moved to Amsterdam in 2000 to dance with Het Nationale Ballet. It was there and then she discovered yoga, and has been since then exploring different yoga styles such us Iyengar & Ashtanga. Her classes are accessible and detailed, mixing the old with the new and infused with a little humour to make sure we all still have fun!

The story so far

Translations: Dutch

Mercedes has been, for a long time, thinking of ways to make (hot) yoga accessible. Not only in the classroom but also financially. In the West we tend to think of yoga as a trend,even as a luxury item. Truth is, we need as little as our body & breath, a room and a mat to practice. So when a friend introduced me to Hotpod Yoga she jumped right onboard and right away knew this was a match made in heaven! HPY Amsterdam launched in Dec 2014, and has been growing ever since. We offer daily classes (am & pm) and run our full schedule from the charming Club Lite (Jan van Galenstraat) in Amsterdam West. We also offer off-site workshops & events.
