Fran is a registered 300hr vinyasa yoga teacher, having obtained her qualification from SPACE yoga studio, Brighton. Fran’s style is more dynamic and she will show you ways into different postures that feel most appropriate for your practice and your body. Fran never stops being amazed by the mini transformation that takes place when she steps on her mat. Stepping on feeling one way, and leaving feeling completely different; that is what brings her back to her mat again and again.

Luke Forest has traveled the world for the best part of the last decade learning movement, breath work and meditation techniques from the oldest and best schools and teachers he could find. He has over 1000 hours training and has spent a lot of time in India studying Yoga philosophy and systems notably at The Yoga Institute in Mumbai.
When asked about his classes he says :
“In my classes I aim to create a focused, challenging yet relaxing environment for students of any level to grow and achieve their goals. I like to offer as many different options in poses as possible and I aim to give students the opportunity to find what works for their body. This allows them to move themselves as far as they are comfortable in order to progress safely and with ease. My goal has always been to bring Yoga to as many people from as many different backgrounds as possible. I believe that this incredible system can benefit everyone, no matter their level of mobility or life experience
Hey I’m Danielle! I teach a strong yet soft and playful vinyasa flow. In all of my classes, I encourage my students to find a personal practice in each class and to strive towards moving in a way that feels good for your body rather than how it looks.
My light hearted humour allows for a bright and welcoming energy in the class.

She had 3 baby boys under the age of 3.5 years old, her mat was her sanctuary and her space.
She is a Vinyasa trained Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
Anna runs worldwide retreats, teacher trainings and workshops, she is also a Sound Therapist.
She loves guiding people into a space where they can embody their body.
Anna’s main passion is to impart her experience in assisting people to become more cohesive in their movement, the basis of which is the breath.

She believes that Yoga can empower us all with tools that can tonic the hustle culture of the Western world; and enjoys facilitating a non-dogmatic space where all are encouraged to inquire, observe and possibly have a giggle or two in the process.
Lauren’s main love and passion has always been martial arts but unfortunately with contact sports can come a lot of injuries. After sustaining some damage to her neck she was recommended yoga as part of her recovery and she has never looked back.
Since becoming a yoga teacher in 2017, Lauren’s passion for good, healthy movement has grown. She likes to teach strong yet reflective practices that allow space for acknowledgement of how the body is feeling and reacting in a posture.
Lauren’s ethos is yoga is for everyone and will never place pressure or expectation on you to do every posture if that doesn’t feel right for you in that moment.
Gary stumbled upon Hotpod Yoga Worthing back in 2019 whilst seeking a space of recovery and relaxation during the challenges of the pandemic. Gary left that first Hotpod class with the feeling of calmness and that of walking on a cloud, he knew then that he wanted to go on to share the Hotpod feeling with the communities of Brighton and Hove. The combination of challenge, fun and positive faces had him coming back again and again. Gary carries a few physical injuries and found the heat and flow of a Hotpod class really worked for his injuries and body. A few friendly franchise meetings with Hotpod Yoga founders led Gary to begin training as a yoga teacher, buying his first Hotpod home, and making Hotpod Hove a reality!
