about the studio

We’re Europe’s largest yoga business. Since 2013, over 100,000 people have immersed themselves in a Hotpod class at one of our 50+ locations around the world. We first landed in Loughborough in 2019.

Join us at our  studio for yoga in its most potent form. You’ll stretch further, breathe deeper, sweat harder and melt fully into the Hotpod experience – a balanced flow of active and passive postures, working the body and calming the mind in equal measure. You’ll step into our 20 person pod and immediately find yourself a million miles away from the every day. Bring water and a towel to enjoy the unique immersion that is a Hotpod Yoga class. To understand it, you’ve got to experience it.

Our studio is located in a beautiful church building near the bustling Loughborough high street you really can't miss us! We're over the moon to be able to reopen our studio, and we're doing everything we can to protect our customers and teachers. Here's a few of the changes that you can expect: We’ll be limiting the numbers of customers per class At the moment, the showers are closed. There is space for you to get changed, but if you can, try and arrive dressed and ready to go! We won’t be providing blocks or straps (but you’re welcome to bring your own) We’ll be practicing with the pod doors a little open for extra ventilation The pod and mats will be deep cleaned and aired out between each class Towels will be required in all classes (you can bring your own, or hire one from us) Please help us by not coming to class if you’re not feeling well or showing any symptoms of coronavirus. Try and arrive 15 minutes before the class starts so that we have time to get you set up. For security reasons, we really can't let anyone in if late, so expect a locked door once the class starts. We have a 12 hour cancellation policy on all classes, cancellations within that timeframe will not be refunded.

Rachael Bull

Lucy Moore

Lucy completely and utterly fell in love with yoga when she lived in Manchester. She was surrounded by all types and styles and she went completely in. Her heart has always been in hot yoga. Just something about the release you get from sweating it out. She qualified to teach only to deepen her understanding however fell further for the science behind the methods.

Cathy Burnside

Cathy trained with Yogahaven in 2015 with the singular notion of teaching Hotpod Yoga having discovered its magical powers in Nottingham and fallen completely in love! The yoga for-real-life concept, accessibility for all, the post-pod glow and the smells (not forgetting the smells) make the pod somewhere she will always want to be, either as a teacher or enthusiastic student. Always hope to make classes welcoming and relaxed with plenty of opportunities to take things a little deeper if you’re feeling full of beans – or dial it back a notch or two if you’re not.

Laura Tindle

Laura grew up in Loughborough and fell in love with yoga and meditation in 2016. With a background in Dance she craved something that would allow her to regain flexibility whilst building strength and Vinyasa yoga was it! In 2018 she travelled to Rishikesh, India to complete her teacher training in Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga and was lucky enough to teach in Sri Lanka. Her training combined with a degree in Human Biology and personal practice allowed her to gain a deeper understanding of the physical benefits yoga brings to the body and the emotional benefits it brings to the mind. Laura loves early morning classes which gently wake up and energise the body and mind, setting you up for the day.

Sarah Hateley

Sarah first discovered Yoga after attending a class in a local village hall, and instantly loved how it made her feel, both physically and mentally. She tried her first Hotpod class back in 2016 and was hooked, and has been a regular ever since. She loves the warmth and atmosphere of being in the pod, and how you leave feeling relaxed but also energised. She believes yoga should be suitable for every body, and should always be adaptable for all needs. She has two horses, both ex-racehorses, who manage to keep her busy, as well as four cats!

Sarah Carter

Creativity, adventure and movement have always been a part of Sarah’s life. She has a diverse background having lived in different countries and had various businesses jobs in an effort to find what matters to her. Her own healing process led her to become a qualified psychotherapist, yoga teacher and yoga therapist for PTSD and anxiety. Originally trained in SunPower, Sarah’s teaching has evolved to be dynamic and therapeutic (grounding, restorative, educational). She believes yoga is a way of life and hopes for it to become a recognised lifestyle medicine.

Rachael Voss

Rachael has lived her whole life in the Loughborough area, coming from a neighbouring village. She began practicing yoga 15 years ago, when one of her best friends trained to be a teacher. She has since spent many years following her to retreats and classes far and wide and finally decided to take the next step herself in 2018.
Rachael was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in May 2016. Yoga has always played a very important part in her self-care routine. Rachael believes that regular exercise and creating space both physically and mentally is key to keeping a positive outlook on life. This also means that having a somewhat ‘invisible illness’ she understands that everyone has their own personal struggles and their own reason for coming to yoga.

Tom Bodsworth

Tom trained with Sivananda for Hatha Yoga in India, followed by Ashtanga Yoga in Rishikesh the same year. He then completed his 300 hour with Trimurti in Goa multi discipline with Yin Yoga.

Tom likes to push people with a Dynamic Flow, but also believes in the gentle calming effects of yoga, by starting slow and winding people back down into a soothing relaxation.

He is also a gardener and grew up in the Leicestershire area. He is passionate about movement, fitness, and bringing people together onto the mat.

Isabel Gondar

Isabel is from Portugal, she trained as a yoga teacher in February 2019 with Dylan Ayloo, in Sri Lanka. Her training was based in vinyasa power yoga with elements of Forrest yoga. She enjoys teaching vinyasa yoga classes mainly to beginners or people who wants to improve their yoga practice. Personally, she likes to practice intense power yoga although, there are times she really enjoys a less intense flow or restorative yoga.

Elaine Denton

Elaine lives in Loughborough and was even born here! She has a for love all things yoga, mindfulness and self development and left the world of corporate management in 2018 to dedicate herself to teaching. Yoga in many ways changed her life! She teaches Vinyasa Yoga, which was why she was drawn to teaching at HotPod and was lucky enough to train locally in Newark, as she is a home bird this suited her so she could also be at home. Can’t wait to see you in my classes soon!

Donna Navarro

Donna, a North Yorkshire lass, moved to Nottinghamshire nine years ago. She came to yoga after a number of back surgeries resulting from degenerative disc disease and a curvature of the lumbar spine. A stressful career in public sector offender management and continued back trouble found her seeking strength, flexibility and balance on the Yoga mat. She has found yoga to be life-changing in terms of improving the health of her spine and in bringing a sense of calmness and grounding to her life. With metal rods and plates in her lumbar spine, she firmly believes that Yoga is for everyone and really looks forward to welcoming you to the mat, whatever your ability.
