Liam Frank Bergin
Liam wants to bring the gratitude he has for this life-enriching practice, into each of his classes. Liam very much believes in movement as medicine, and putting the body in motion to still the mind. Whether you are new to yoga, or a seasoned-pro, Liam will give you the opportunity to turn inwards for an hour, so that when you step outside, you will feel revitalised, relaxed, and ready for whatever comes your way.
Nina’s approach to teaching yoga creates a space for inclusivity, from styles such as slow flow to something a bit more challenging. Yoga as a physical practice that allows us to create change and with that we learn patience and acceptance. We look for strength and length on our mats, for adaptation and exploration in the mind and importantly choices across the board.
Yoga is a gift which has been passed down to me from the women in my family. I was introduced to yoga as a child but became truly ‘religious’ about my practice at University. I completed a 200 hour Hatha and Ashtanga teaching training immediately after. I enjoy the sense of togetherness from moving in harmony with the rest of the class, and believe in the power of yoga to lesses inflammation in the body and mind. Yoga is best when shared.
Rachel has practiced and studied several styles of yoga. She weaves these approaches into her classes making them creative, challenging (with options for differing levels of ability) and fun, she likes to keep her classes focused but not too serious! She is a firm believer that there is always an option for everyone, empowering you to adjust your practice and tune in to what your body and mind truly need each time you’re in the pod, be it a challenge or to go softer. This will allow you to work hard but also respectfully.
Lisa stepped on a yoga mat for the very first time in 2016 and although the physicality of the practise interested her, she realised the ability yoga has to calm and balance her mind. Lisa believes in living life free of judgement, filled with joy and gratitude. These feelings inform her practise and guide her teaching, which help students better connect to themselves and their surroundings in today’s busy world.
Lucy fell in love with yoga after she discovered the powerful impact it had on both her physical and mental wellbeing when she first started practicing. She loves to teach dynamic and energising classes with the aim of leaving students feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to tackle all challenges outside of the pod.
Jude has been teaching Yoga for 6 years and pilates and ballet for many years before that. As a professionally trained dancer and circus performer, her classes are strong yet playful. She believes in creating a compassionate, non judgemental space where people feel comfortable to let go and try new things…always rounded off with a sweet sweet relaxation.
Sian strongly believes in the power of yoga for helping people to overcome obstacles in their lives, and providing focus and calm in today’s world.
Her classes bring together fun, dynamic flow and powerful postures; with the aim of helping students energetically connect to their bodies and minds. The focus on strength and confidence helps students feel at ease; and leaves them feeling relaxed, empowered and enjoying every step of the way!
Caroline relocated to the exciting city of Bristol in 2015, after having lived in London for 8 years. Caroline first discovered the joys of yoga whilst at university and realised that it offered physical, emotional as well as mental benefits as a student. She loved being a customer of Hotpod Yoga Bristol and was incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to take over from Frances and George. She looks forward to welcoming you at the studio so that you can enjoy all the benefits that the pod offers.
