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.

the founder

Gary Vaughan

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!
