Hotpod Yoga Redditch, 2a Broad Ground Road, Redditch, West Midlands, B98 8YP, GB
I found yoga in 2011 as a way to minimise the injuries I had been sustaining through exercise. I didnt expect to become so instantly hooked and quickly experienced many benefits both physically and mentally. In 2016 I took the plunge to become a teacher and trained in Vinyasa/Hatha styles.
After attending my first Hotpod class I never looked back. For me its the perfect balance of everything I need from a yoga class: the flow, the music, the light and the ambience. The teachers continue to push you physically whilst still allowing you to quieten your mind from the outside world. As a teacher my main aim is for to my classes to be accessible to all, playful and fun.
Outside of the pod I love weight training and crossfit, listening to great music, travelling, spending time in nature and eating everything in sight.
See you on the mat soon!

I was first introduced Into HPY back in 2015 as a full time mum looking for some ‘me time’. I loved it. From going back into the industry after a career break a few years earlier my journey into yoga progressed from Yoga, Tai Chi & pilates to wanting to complete my YTT and delve into the world of Hotpod. I can’t wait to share my experience of Hotpod with everyone.
I’ve always been passionate about fitness and exercise since a young age. A dancer through my childhood, enjoying weightlifting, moving and keeping healthy is something I’ve always loved to do.
Yoga has the element of dance and fitness to it which is what first intrigued me; the aesthetics, flexibility and all the physical benefits.
As well as the physical benefits to yoga there are so many mental benefits. The way you can control, calm your body and mind down through practice whether it be with mediation or flowing through postures energising the body and stilling the mind. Yoga is the perfect way to give something back to yourself and feel restored and uplifted.
I was instantly hooked when I found the pod and knew this is something I wanted to share with everyone. This led me to take the step to do my RYS200 hour Teacher training with Hotpod Yoga.
Teaching classes which are accessible to anyone, flowy, energetic and uplifting is my favourite thing to do.
Hope to see you soon!
