Danielle Knight

Danielle began the yoga journey with her Mum and Auntie in a school hall about 20 years ago. Loving how graceful she felt within the poses, she couldn’t get enough of the feeling of wellbeing that yoga brings. Yoga and meditation helped her through pregnancy, and when her beautiful baby was born she found, who would soon become, her teacher on Body in Balance TV. A few years later, in true alignment with the stars, Danielle made a friend who had trained with the same teacher in the beautiful style of Yoga Rhythm, as well as Vinyasa Flow and Hatha and completed the training herself. Danielle adores the practice, it is the constant that gets her through life’s challenges. Using yoga to manage sciatica and knee pain she has seen so many physical and mental benefits and is so happy to have the opportunity to share this beautiful practice with others. Danielle tries as much as she can to take yoga off the mat into her life, and has taken this further towards veganism and strives to be as eco friendly as possible.

Nikki Sheriff

Nikki has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and has recently completed a Yoga Alliance certified 200-hour yoga teacher training course focusing on vinyasa and yin styles of yoga. Nikki was first introduced to Hotpod Yoga in 2021 by her younger brother and was impressed by the inclusivity and freedom to explore her own practice that was promoted by all the teachers. Nikki strongly believes that yoga is for everyone and finds consistency in the variety each yoga class can have. She encourages her students to explore the capabilities of their own bodies, acting as a guide to help them develop their own skills and personal practises.

Amy Mae

Whilst working as a theatre lighting designer in London, Amy discovered hot yoga and loved the atmosphere so much she ended up working at her local studio. She noticed how people went into the class stressed and came out calm and relaxed, transforming into a different person! It was a refreshing change from working in theatre, so she trained with Sampoorna yoga gaining a 200hr teacher training qualification in 2021. After working in London as a freelance yoga teacher, Amy is now part of the Hotpod team. A fan of Yoga Nidra and being kind to your body, she hopes to have you leaving the class feeling refreshed and calm, while appreciating the purple lighting and essential oils.

Dorita Nissen

Danish-born Dorita, a Freelance Makeup Artist with 20+ years experience in fashion and film. But amidst the unpredictable freelance life, Dorita recognised the need to prioritise her mental and physical well-being. Embracing this realisation, she delved into the realms of Spin and Yoga, seeking a harmonious blend that nurtured both body and mind. For Dorita, Yoga is more than just a practice; it’s a vibrant community that fosters mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Her philosophy is succinctly put: “Yoga is a joyful journey of self-care, a celebration of showing up for oneself.”

Scott Edwards

Scott’s journey has been full of challenges, but his discovery of yoga in 2020 proved to be a turning point for him. When other options weren’t available, yoga gave him a way to move his body and stay active. Unfortunately, in 2022, Scott suffered knee injuries that put an end to his 10-year career as a dancer. It was a difficult time, but yoga once again came to his aid, helping him with his rehabilitation and giving him a renewed sense of purpose. After completing a 200-hour training course with Hotpod Academy, Scott is now eager to help others on their own physical healing journeys.

Since returning to the UK, she’s had three children and continued her yoga practice, noticing the strength, resilience and stability it’s provided throughout her life.

Liyen Mathew

Ex-synchronised swimmer Liyen had always enjoyed being fit and active, but after trying yoga for the first time in 2019, it changed her outlook entirely. It prompted a career change from a stressful senior management position to becoming a full time fitness coach and yoga teacher. “I stumbled upon Hotpod Yoga almost by accident but soon I was hooked. I met some of the team and got chatting to one of the owners at a local festival and immediately booked myself on to the next available intensive teaching training and franchisee training. I could not wait to share this incredible experience with others. Getting up in the morning and being able to have a positive impact on someone else’s life is the best motivation for doing a job. I’m discovering daily that mindful fitness and taking care of yourself is essential for a healthy body and sound mind.

the founder

Liyen Mathew

Having worked in the health and fitness industry since the age of 16, but always for large organisations, Liyen longed for the independence of running her own business. Her background in teaching group fitness classes combined with years in operational facility management has meant that owning a HotPod Yoga studio is the perfect combination. She joined 2019 HotPod Yoga Teacher Training and applied to be a Franchisee after. She is extremely excited to be launching in August 2022 in the stunning historic surroundings of the Weedon Bec Depot near Daventry. The timetable promises to offer a variety of dynamic and nurturing classes accessible for all abilities.
