Alice started practising yoga in 2011, initially for the physical benefits, but soon felt how yoga was beginning to transform other aspects of her life; bringing grounding, vitality and a sense of ease.
Since completing her teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa with Yoga London in 2017 she has trained in Yin with Meditation as well as becoming an accredited Barre and Reformer Pilates teacher.
Alice teaches with an emphasis brought to the breath, allowing it to guide you through the whole sequence. Her classes embrace anatomical individuality and she encourages students to move intuitively, cultivating care and awareness so they can develop an expressive, fluid and fun practice.
Alice is a firm believer that Yoga is a simple way to generate more physical and mental space that can allow clarity, openness and a deeper connection to ourselves and the world around us.
Liv started practicing yoga 5 years ago to help with her mental health, and when she found and fell in love with Hotpod Yoga there was no turning back! She found it to be a nurturing and empowering environment where she felt capable of anything. Liv knew she wanted to help others achieve this feeling and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training. Liv loves a fast paced vinyasa flow but also a warm hug of a Nurturing flow class.
Kat began her relationship with yoga after being convinced to try a hot class back in 2018. After that she never looked back! She found yoga to be a safe, healing space where she could reconnect with her body after recovering from an Eating Disorder. Kat moved to Nottingham and soon became a Hotpod regular. She’s passionate about helping people suffering with mental health issues through yoga. This led her on to pursue her 200 hours yoga teacher training; graduating from Calm studios in May 2021. She swiftly left her job in hospitality to pursue a career as a full time yogi! She loves to flow and get lost in mindful movements. Kat is passionate about making yoga accessible for everyone and every body.
Lucy completely and utterly fell in love with yoga when she lived in Manchester. She was surrounded by all types and styles and she went completely in. Her heart has always been in hot yoga. Just something about the release you get from sweating it out. She qualified to teach only to deepen her understanding however fell further for the science behind the methods.
Cathy trained with Yogahaven in 2015 with the singular notion of teaching Hotpod Yoga having discovered its magical powers in Nottingham and fallen completely in love! The yoga for-real-life concept, accessibility for all, the post-pod glow and the smells (not forgetting the smells) make the pod somewhere she will always want to be, either as a teacher or enthusiastic student. Always hope to make classes welcoming and relaxed with plenty of opportunities to take things a little deeper if you’re feeling full of beans – or dial it back a notch or two if you’re not.
Laura grew up in Loughborough and fell in love with yoga and meditation in 2016. With a background in Dance she craved something that would allow her to regain flexibility whilst building strength and Vinyasa yoga was it! In 2018 she travelled to Rishikesh, India to complete her teacher training in Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga and was lucky enough to teach in Sri Lanka. Her training combined with a degree in Human Biology and personal practice allowed her to gain a deeper understanding of the physical benefits yoga brings to the body and the emotional benefits it brings to the mind. Laura loves early morning classes which gently wake up and energise the body and mind, setting you up for the day.
Isabel is from Portugal, she trained as a yoga teacher in February 2019 with Dylan Ayloo, in Sri Lanka. Her training was based in vinyasa power yoga with elements of Forrest yoga. She enjoys teaching vinyasa yoga classes mainly to beginners or people who wants to improve their yoga practice. Personally, she likes to practice intense power yoga although, there are times she really enjoys a less intense flow or restorative yoga.
