Zach has always been a keen fitness enthusiast. He likes to keep 3 pillars at the forefront of his practice and teaching:
1. Calm the nervous system to alleviate any stresses
2. Deepen connection, self-awareness and presence.
3. Build resilience, focus, strength and mobility.

Yoga has the power to bring forward tremendous growth for anyone, on and off the mat.


Shane began his yoga journey in 2019 after a change in jobs as a way to slow things down. His first experience of yoga was on a foam mat in front of TouTube, and he never looked back. After attending classes and practicing with a teacher 1-2-1 he flew to Majorca and completed his training in the October of 2020.

Shane’s response to anyone who tell him they can’t touch their toes is to “just bend their knees because why does anyone need to have straight legs” cementing his belief that anyone can come to one of his classes and enjoy every aspect of it, be it the physical postures, the breathwork or the quieter periods.

Shane’s classes are light-hearted and relaxed, finding a balance between focus and fun – “because if you’re not having fun, then what’s the point?”



Getting into movement later in life, Holly had been exploring lots of different ways to engage with her body and back in 2018 she tried Asana (Yoga postures) for the first time.
Of course she loved the physical, but once Holly started going to studio classes, she discovered all the other incredible aspects of the Yoga practice.

The more Holly learned, the more compelled she felt to share her experience and by April 2021 her teaching journey had begun.

Holly’s training encompassed Yin, Hatha and Vinyasa and since, she has gone on to teach all these forms of practices. Plus Holly also loves being able to provide Chair Yoga classes locally. Yoga is for everybody and Holly’s classes are a reflection of her continued intention to invite everyone to benefit from the ‘tricks and treats’ our Yoga practice can gift.



Abi completed her Yoga teacher training in February 2023. At the beginning it was a journey of self-discovery and from it her passion for yoga grew. Along her way she discovered new depths of herself, and it opened up lots of avenues for exploring other holistic practices.

Abi feels it’s really important for everyone to be able to access yoga without a perception that you have to fit the social criteria – the asana (poses) are such a small percentage of the practice! Abi likes to empower and encourage everyone to be their best self!

Melissa’s yoga journey started 8 years ago. She was mesmerised by all kinds of yoga poses on Instagram and thought what the hell let’s give it a go. Melissa began to attend 1 or 2 classes a week. As her flexibility improved, she grew ever more intrigued by the philosophy of yoga and how this practice was helping her in day to day life. She was lucky enough to be able indulge in her passion and undertake a teacher training course at The Same Star Yoga School.

If you would have told a younger version of Melissa that she would be teaching yoga today her response would be “No Way! You can’t stand on your head and bend like that!” And the TRUTH is, she still can’t. However, yoga is an individual practice, and everyone comes to the mat for a different reason.

Melissa believes that yoga classes should be fun, we should enjoy the journey and not the destination!

Studio owner of Hotpod Yoga Colchester. Zoe first tried hot yoga when she was 18 and instantly fell in love with the feeling it gave her.

the founder

Zoe Young

Zoe first discovered hot yoga when she was 18, she immediately fell in love with the feeling she had after class and quickly became obsessed. Life and traveling meant hot yoga was paused for a few years, but once settled she found Hotpod Yoga Cambridgeshire whilst living in Newmarket and instantly fell in love with the ‘pod’ experience. At the time she was working as a mortgage adviser and spent her days full of stress, always working, and honestly felt miserable. She knew she had to change something, and happened to notice the ‘become a franchisee’ page on the Hotpod App and decided to reach out to Hotpod! After realising this was possible, Zoe relocated to Colchester, and started working towards her very own franchise journey. Yoga has helped Zoe deepen her awareness of her mind and body, improve mobility and aid recovery after heavy gym sessions. Zoe wants to help as many people as possible discover the benefits that yoga can bring to them.
