Dan has a huge passion for sharing yoga with others and using this practice to connect back to ourselves, amidst the chaos of modern life. He first found yoga as a way of improving strength and flexibility for his martial arts training and soon fell in love with the practice.

Nathalie comes to her Yoga Practice as a teacher fascinated by fascia, enthralled by the nervous system and in awe of the human condition, both on and off the mat. An encouraging and open presence, she loves to pepper metaphor and imagery throughout practice. Her main ambition is that we leave a class re-connected with our bodies through breath, and awareness. Forever a student, she trained in London and then moved to the seaside, in search of some stillness.
Hollie is a super friendly teacher from the North who has travelled a lot as a musical theatre performer. Yoga for Hollie is a tool to tapping into how she is feeling each day mentally and physically-the mat is a safe space. It’s about noticing the chatter that rises, breathing into it, accepting it and letting it melt away.
Chris first came across Hotpod Yoga Margate when he started a mission to change his life for the better. Becoming immediately hooked with the modern style and pure escapism the Pod provides, and the incredible mental and physical health benefits, he quickly realised he needed to be the one up front teaching. Within a year he completed his 200hr YTT with Hotpod Yoga and now feels like he is living the dream! “I can’t wait to help people feel the way the Pod has helped me feel
Nicole loves creating classes that offer both fun challenges and deep relaxation. She was recommended yoga for an injury and has clocked up hundreds of teacher training hours in a number of styles. She loves sound healing and yoga nidra, but when she discovered hot yoga she got hooked on moving in the heat. Nicole believes yoga isn’t about the perfect pose – it’s about doing what feels good and right for your body, and having fun with it. Expect her flow and dynamic classes to be upbeat, and her nurturing classes to leave you feeling calm and stretched out.
Beth is a qualified children’s yoga teacher, and has been practising for almost 20 years.
She wanted to bring the therapeutic benefits she enjoys from yoga, including a sense of peace, to her three children, which is why she recently trained under the tuition of Caroline Garland and Yogamoves4kids.
“Yoga is a wonderful way to connect with my children. They love the postures and the opportunity to have fun and be creative with it.
“Yoga not only supports children’s physical health but it’s so important in developing their mental and emotional wellbeing too.”
Kimberley began practising yoga in London 12 years ago, time and circumstances with long hours consumed behind a desk in post production lead her away from practise and the idea of T.T …until moving to Margate…
The Pod landed like a spaceship (like flight of the navigator) and she was consumed by the purple glow “take me to your leader”, no small talk was required to get her jumping head first into classes and to Yoga London for her 200hr T.T.
Jess first tried Yoga as a student, dipping in and out of classes throughout her 20s and early 30s. Practising more regularly helped her to nurture her body as she recovered from a caesarean, whilst also giving her the tools to stay present and focussed, in a time when she felt increasingly distracted! Jess’ classes are friendly, fun and accessible.
