She did her yoga training in India with Mahi Yoga after completing her studies here in Cape Town and working at a rural hospital near the SA – Mozambique border. While training as an occupational therapist she sought out activities that provide opportunity for meaningful engagement – something she can practice personally and incorporate in therapeutic modalities- and that’s when she fell in love with yoga!

André Hugo

Andre first came across Hotpod Yoga in the UK, and found that it provided him with something that was physically challenging, but that also allowed him to clear his head. Andre is passionate about his new studio, promoting fitness, wellbeing and positivity and the classes at Hotpod will allow clients to work on their mind and body simultaneously. A Chartered Accountant by day, Andre has a background in gymnastics and has been practicing yoga alongside his fitness regime for some time now. He is excited to open up the benefits of HPY to Cape Town.
