Paige began exploring holistic wellbeing over 10 years ago, travelling the world delving into the philosophies of yoga and ayurveda. Undertaking her yoga training in India, she came back to the UK to create, Flore and Folk; an infusion of yoga and ayurvedic guidance, for those seeking to connect and flourish in life. Paige’s classes are light-hearted, fun and energetic, creating balance and wellbeing on and off the mat.


Ellouise started practising yoga back in 2016 when she was experiencing a family loss due to cancer. She noticed how much yoga benefited her mental wellbeing and how it changed her mindset to think more positively. She has continued to practise regularly ever since. She came across Hotpod yoga in 2018 and completely fell in love with hot yoga and the concept of the pod. Ellouise completed her 200hr yin-yang yoga training in Ubud, Bali in Summer of 2021 and now teaches beginners and intermediate Vinyasa flow, beginners yin yoga and likes to focus on breath work during her practise. She enjoys an advanced hot vinyasa flow to really get the body moving and feeling good.


I’ve been a yoga practitioner since 2000 and passionate about yoga’s health benefits right from the start. In 2000 yoga helped me cure the dizzy spells I was having. In 2005 it helped me strengthen my knees which had worn out ligaments and tendons. I love practicing yoga so much that in 2014 I became qualified to teach. I wanted to be able to inspire others to improve their health through not just through the physical practice of yoga but also pranayama (breath control) and yoga nidra (a powerful and restorative waking sleep). These days I teach a variety of yoga styles and I feel blessed to be able to share the positive and transformative benefits of a regular yoga practice with others.


Following a career as a secondary school PE Teacher, Alice made the transition of moving back home to set up Hotpod Yoga Northampton. She was a National League hockey player and loves most things sport and exercise related. Before being introduced to Hotpod Yoga, she had never done yoga before! Alice just loves the calming, yet challenging effect Hotpod Yoga has. Since embarking on her Hotpod Yoga journey, she has never looked back!


Ijy’s background is in dance, choreography and gymnastics naturally led her to yoga, Bikram and then Hotpod Vinyasa around a year ago. She really found her flow here and loves the benefits of the heat in the pod. Ijy was initially attracted purely for the physical benefits but with more frequent practise, it became a much more spiritual and meaningful experience for her. Yoga has helped re-set Ijy’s mind as well as her body. Ijy took her teacher training with Hotpod and loved every second. She can’t wait to get back in the pod, share the love and get sweaty again!



I discovered yoga over 20 years ago when I was working as a Fitness Instructor in a local health club. I was lucky enough to secure a health and fitness position onboard a cruise liner, where I could combine my love of travel with my profession. I predominantly travelled to American ports, where yoga was starting to become increasingly popular at that time . During my travels I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to practice with some amazing teachers in beautiful locations.

After a few years of travelling, I was keen to gain more knowledge so I returned to the UK and attended University. I love sport, so the natural route for me was to take a degree in Physical Education. Upon completion of my course, I graduated with a B. Ed First Class Honours. I still had a strong desire to see more of the world so I began working for an airline. I was regularly flying in and out of Los Angeles, this is where I experienced my first Bikram Yoga class. I was instantly hooked. My job enabled me to attend workshops and teacher trainings around the world.

There were no hot yoga studios local to me in the UK at that time, therefore, I could only practice when I was away. Eventually the UK caught up and I was able to practice more regularly on home soil. With regular practice I soon noticed the positive effects practicing in the heat was having on my body.

I took a leap of faith and completed my 200 hr yoga training in 2018. I began my training just one month after having knee surgery and was amazed how much yoga assisted my rehabilitation.

I am very excited to join the team at Hotpod and look forward to seeing you on the mat. I’m delighted to be able to share the benefits of yoga with you, whatever stage you are at in your yoga journey.



I found yoga a year ago when Alice opened up Hotpod Yoga in Northampton – it quite literally changed my life! Since then I have been to India to undertake my 200hr YTT course and have now returned back to teach in the pod. The benefits of yoga are unmistakable for me – bringing the mind, body and breath into alignment, allows us all to focus on our own individual wellbeing, giving us space from the busy-ness of today’s lives. Added to that the cocooned-like atmosphere of Hotpod is a recipe for a blissful experience I say! I believe the classes that Hotpod deliver will blow your mind also. I am excited to be joining the friendly team at Hotpod Northampton and to help you enjoy your classes as much as I enjoyed mine when I discovered Hotpod Yoga. Look forward to meeting you in the pod sometime soon!


My name is Helen and I’m a 200hr Sun Power Yoga Teacher from Leicestershire. Previously, I worked in mainstream education for over 12 years as a secondary teacher before leaving in 2017 to set up my own yoga business. I believe that yoga’s physical and emotional benefits have saved me and many others I know. I also believe yoga is for everybody and every body, regardless of age or ability from babies to the twilight years, yoga can be used to keep us supple, happy and in the moment rather than worrying about the past or what’s yet to come. Movement. Meditation. Mindfulness is the way forward – I’m excited to start teaching at HPY Northampton as it is super fun and friendly, just as the yoga community should be!


Kathryn developed an interest in yoga following injuries and surgery. She discovered Ashtanga yoga and has never looked back and now enjoys and values all forms of yoga. Initially practising for rehabilitation, yoga has become a way of life and not just supported her physically but mentally and emotionally. Kathryn did her teacher training in India in 2017 and started teaching alongside her full-time role as a specialist nurse practitioner. Since then she has attended many workshops and retreats. Kathryn’s classes are fun yet energetic with value being placed on breath to movement. She encourages students to approach each practise on the mat as it is the first, honouring the body and the mind in the moment without judgement.


Marie has been teaching yoga since 2017, alongside being a Secondary School Music Teacher and Head of Year. Yoga became a way of improving her general well-being. Her personal Yoga practice is a vinyasa / dynamic practice. Marie’s classes aim to be strong, but accessible and fun, with an emphasis on exploring the balance of strength and softness within poses and helping students listen to and become more aware of their bodies and breath.


Becky is a sports scientist and yoga teacher and her passion for yoga was actually developed by her love of Hotpod! She has been practising yoga for over 10 years and decided she wanted to teach, to share her love with others. Becky uses yoga to develop better bodily awareness, de-stress and to perfectly compliment her sporting endeavours. Becky brings this attitude, passion, energy and enthusiasm into her yoga classes, delivering a dynamic, fun flow.

Alice Williams

A friend introduced Alice to Hotpod Yoga in Solihull in 2015. Initially sceptical of yoga, the fun, intensifying, stress-relieving workout, combined with the immersive pod environment, soon had Alice hooked! When returning to her hometown Northampton, the absence of local Hotpod Yoga led to the irresistible opportunity to open the Northampton franchise!
