Laurence first encountered yoga while travelling in India in 2008. It only took a few classes before he realised that it was special.

Since then, he has returned to India many times, continuing to train and learn from teachers in various locations. He has been exposed to various styles of yoga. He learned alignment-based Hatha Yoga in the Himalayas in North India. He spent time living in an ashram learning meditation techniques. He travelled to Mysore in the south of India to experience Ashtanga. Most recently, he has studied Ayurvedic Yoga massage techniques.

He continues to remain open to learning and loves to expand his knowledge and practice by experiencing new styles of yoga. This varied background of yoga ‘lineages’ that he has experienced has given him a rounded practice and a deep understanding of the subtleties of yoga. He has a degree in eastern religions, which also gives him a sensitive understanding of the historical and cultural sources of yoga, and how they play an important part in shaping modern yoga practices.

His own regular practice helped his body become stronger and more flexible; it helped him find confidence, health, and generally become happier within his own skin and life. He teaches because he wants to share this with everyone. He believes that the tools in the ‘yoga toolbox’ are very powerful and it is his passion and joy to share these tools so that everyone can have the same opportunity to make lasting and positive changes in their life.

When not practising, thinking, or learning about yoga, his varied interests include landscape and travel photography, piano, art and craft, baduk, and hiking.


As an ex professional rugby player, Ollie’s journey into yoga began as a quest to enhance his athletic abilities and safeguard against injuries. What started as a simple curiosity soon evolved into a profound practice that would facilitate his game, nurturing his mind and body.

After completing a degree in Marketing & Management from Loughborough University, Ollie went travelling to
Nepal, India and was lucky enough to complete his YTT in the breath-taking beauty of Nusa Lembongan, Bali. Ollie is passionate about sharing the transformative power of yoga, which has enriched his life both physically and mentally. Yoga is for everyone, and in his classes, Ollie aims to create a welcoming environment where students can explore and challenge their capabilities while disconnecting from external distractions and focusing on themselves, embracing a renewed sense of vitality.


Kasie’s love affair with yoga began 10 years ago when a friend recommended a Hatha class in her next door village. At the time she was a frantic mum of two lovely, but lively, toddlers and wanted one thing from yoga: an hour to relax.

It wasn’t long before she started noticing changes to her mind, and then to her body. She began to feel stronger, happier and more balanced. It was as if a warm light had been flicked on inside a busy brain, and she wanted others to experience the same.

So Kasie quit her job as a busy national journalist and began working towards a career in health and fitness.

Kasie is both a qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer, Nutritional Coach and, most recently, completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher accredited by Yoga Alliance.

Kasie has a particular interest in female health and is currently studying for an additional British Wheel of Yoga certificate in Menopause Yoga. Her hope is to share practices that will bring together yoga poses, breathing techniques and mindful meditations to support women on their journies through peri-menopause and menopause.

As a fierce fan of Hotpod since the day it first opened in Norwich, Kasie is thrilled to be a part of it’s incredible family!


Eve discovered yoga eight years ago, but it wasn’t until a debilitating back injury that she felt a calling to share her love of yoga to support others to move and live better. Eve embarked on her 200HR YTT at Wild Warrior Yoga School in Spain, learning the foundations of Ashtanga alignment and philosophy, as well as Vinyasa and Pranayama.

Eve’s classes are a celebration of the joy that yoga and movement can bring. Her energetic yet soothing presence encourages creativity, and playfulness, whilst providing a supportive style for all levels of yoga students. She believes that through these elements, individuals can reconnect with their bodies, tap into their inner strength, and find balance within their lives.

Outside of yoga Eve is a Practice Nurse, she supports people with chronic conditions, women’s health and overall educating individuals around preventative health and nutrition. She also runs her own business as WellnessEve where she works as a nutrition and health coach to create long lasting health and lifestyle changes through personalised programmes.

Hollieann’s journey in fitness, cognitive behavioural therapy and self discovery was all sparked by one conversation from a coach asking ‘how are you really?

Hollieann wants movement, release and strength be the foundation to each of your practices together.

Abby has been teaching yoga for 23 years and practising for much longer. Her background is in contemporary dance and Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. She has been training and mentoring yoga teachers since 2008 and is the author of a PhD investigating the connections between dance education and yoga.

Her aim when teaching is to demystify the practice and make it relevant for modern busy lifestyles. Her teaching style is friendly and inclusive and her years of experience on the mat make her the perfect guide for beginners and experienced yogi’s alike.


Elliott has been practicing yoga for 4 and a half years with a strong dedicated morning practice lasting from 2 to 3 hours a day. He completed his 200hr yoga teach training with Dylan Werner, an amazing advanced yoga practitioner. He’s always loved movement; from playing American football or going to the gym but also gets distracted by modern technology. After completing his degree in Games Design and after endless hours of sitting he turned to yoga. He found this was a great way to reconnect with himself.

Elliott teaches a challenging Vinyasa class which can be for anyone. He believes that challenging ourselves everyday only makes us grow yet also allows us to stay present. The way the world is currently, with everything changing rapidly and with so many distractions, it’s hard to find the time to give to ourselves. Elliott hopes to share his journey and practice with you.

Let’s reconnect before we disconnect.

Kelly wanted to escape the 9-5 office job and to make a positive difference to people's lives. In 2019 she discovered Hotpod Yoga and fell in love with how amazing it made her feel after an exhausting commute. Her shoulders felt less tense and mind calmer and she realised that there was more to look forward to on a Monday night than being one step closer to the weekend! The pandemic was an opportunity for reflection, and after nights of brainstorming she soon discovered Hotpod was a franchise. There was no doubt in her mind what she had to do. Kelly decided that the perfect new home for the pod would be Norwich, with its down-to-earth vibe, creativity and diversity of culture. Kelly soon opened the doors to the people of Norfolk and hopes they fall as much in love with the Pod as she has. The studio offers a dynamic Vinyasa Flow with a variety of Teachers suitable for all levels. Come join us today, get your flow on and see if you can handle the heat!
