Yoga was introduced to Freddie as a low impact form of exercise that would aid strength and flexibility. Only when he started practicing daily did he discover not only the mental and physical benefits of yoga, but also an appreciation for how it encouraged him to link breathing to how you move. Freddie’s classes are strong yet playful, and encourage people to experiment and explore different poses and progressions in a safe space.

In 2016, Zoe trained in the foot of the Himalayas, India and has been teaching in a variety of styles since. Her favourite thing about yoga is the warm buzz at the end of the class when everyone has messy hair, big smiles and are feeling more human. Zoe tends to match her style and sequences to the energy of the room and always encourage students to listen to how they feel both mentally and within their bodies. She teaches in an inclusive, friendly and relaxed manner and it’s always her goal to make people laugh and feel at home.
Sid first found her love of yoga in 2016 through rock climbing as a member of the GB Climbing Team. In February 2019, she travelled to Rishikesh India to deeper discover the traditional practice and teachings. Here, she completed her 200HR Teacher Training.
‘I truly believe that Yoga is a healer. As both a practioner and a teacher, I aim to translate this faith in an informative and positive style to my students. Daily practice has enriched me both physically and mentally and I hope to fuel this continuation to the Yogi’s of the North East within the pod.’
Natalie’s background is based in fitness and dance. She loves physicality and movement as a way to express and release. Yoga gives so many physical, mental and spiritual benefits it balances both mind and body. It challenges and it provides freedom. After completing her 200hr YTTC in India she is excited to share yoga at Hotpod Morpeth.
Jules first tried hot yoga in 2014 after looking for a less impactful form of exercise following years of running and developing “crunchy knees”. Jules was instantly hooked and embarked on a training course at the start of 2017. After graduating she set up her own yoga classes in local village halls and taught at the studio where she trained.
Balancing a successful career in logistics became increasingly difficult and she found myself drawn more and more to teaching yoga as it gave such a buzz. Jules soon made the decision to walk away from her logistics career to teach yoga full time and has never looked back. She misses having a fancy company car but that’s the only thing!
Having been involved in many sports all his life, most particularly surfing Peter came to yoga as a means to increase mobility, reduce recovery time and maintain performance. The more he practiced the more he realised the mental benefits were as powerful as the physical. He fell in love with the immersive nature of Hotpod Yoga and trained as a teacher with them and now can’t wait to bring these benefits to the people of a Morpeth and the surrounding area
Allie had experienced many types of yoga for many years- being drawn to the movement and mental focus it gave. As someone with psoriatic arthritis having experienced the additional heat of the pod she really noticed the benefits it brought to her joints and skin. When the chance arose to train with Hotpod Yoga she was so impressed by the quality of teaching she came back and inspired Peter to train too, and set about launching their very own Hotpod Yoga in Morpeth
