As a yoga and movement facilitator, Siobhan’s teachings incorporate breath and conscious movement to strengthen and stretch the body and to allow for a deeper connection with mind, body and soul.
Her classes are challenging and draw influence from her variety of studies in Asia, South Africa and Europe. She spent a decade in London attending various workshops and retreats where she was fortunate enough to be exposed to inspiring and passionate teachers, workshops and trainings through the various studios she worked at including Hotpod Yoga UK where she taught and trained for many years!
It is from the support of the numerous studios she’s worked at and the exposure of all the different styles and techniques, that she has a deep understanding, vast amount of knowledge and everlasting passion for everything Yoga, and she is a welcome addition to the Hotpod SA crew.
Abedah’s yoga journey began in 2014 and continues to flourish. She enjoys yoga as a way of maintaining a healthy body and sound mind. Abedah spent 2 years maintaining her own asana practice before moving on to complete her 300 HR Hatha yoga certification. She is excited to share her perspective on leading a yogic lifestyle with all who seek to know more. “There is so much to learn from facilitating a space for yogis to safely explore their bodies. As teacher, I am passionate about making yoga accessible for people of all walks of life.”
Expect a class with emphasis on safety, correct alignment, easy-to-follow sequencing and modifications of postures – making it an experience for all levels.
Maz found their feet on the ground when they found yoga! “My mind used to occupy my attention 24/7, then I found yoga and discovered a deep sense of calm, stillness and awareness. I found my anxiety levels decreased significantly.” They quickly became committed to a strong and regular yoga practise and completed their first teacher’s training course with internationally acclaimed Ashtanga teacher Caroline Klebl in 2007 and completed a course in Vinyasa Flow Yoga in 2010 at Living Yoga.
Maz’s classes are strong and push you to find your own personal edge, leaving you feeling grounded, refreshed and energized.
They are also a Kids Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist.
New to the pod, but not to yoga. Ivana first stepped onto her mat in 2015 and has pretty much never left. She completed her teacher training in 2019 through Yoga Warrior, and is passionate about honoring tradition while nuturing creativity.
Her style is deeply influenced by both Iyengar and Vinyasa, and as such her classes are grounded in stamina and strength both from a physical and mental perspective.
Her aim is to create a safe and non-competitive space for all students to explore and, most importantly, enjoy their practice, which will consist of creative sequencing, intentional breathwork and hands-on assists.
Karen loves teaching flow classes as students get to combat the effects of stress. Her classes mostly focus on gaining courage and confidence to push students to reach their utmost potential on the mat and in life, letting go and focusing on the positive. Her students will leave her classes feeling confident, courageous, positive, elated, energised and uplifted.
Genna has been practicing yoga since 2005, and brings a diverse background of training to her classes. Having qualified in 2008 with a hatha vinyasa 200hr training course, she has taken a roundabout way to teaching, by climbing up mountains and running in extreme races, not to mention racking up some hours driving a desk. She has gone on to do various additional training courses in yin yoga, and pre- and post-natal yoga.
She is well placed to know the benefits of yoga in enhancing sporting performance, while it restores the weary worker. She believes in it so much she bought the franchise! Her classes will challenge you yet leave you feeling revitalised.
Kirsty’s classes offer sequences with variations for all levels. Her ultimate intention is to allow students to experience a quiet place of stillness and the benefits of living in the moment, leaving them feeling calm yet energised.
