Kerry Stewart

Kerry is a newly qualified 200 hour Vinyassa Flow teacher. she is passionate about sharing the gift of yoga as was freely given to her.
She didn’t find yoga. Yoga found her. For that her heart and soul is truly grateful. Kerry has a strong practice but also loves a gentler Yin style to really use breath to deepen into stretches and asanas.
Yoga, both on the mat and off has been the flame to the candlelight of her spirit. Some days it flickers, on others it flares so hot that it reaches the sunlight in the spirit of others who need it.
“Your laughter is the sunshine to
my soul”
(Gabi – fellow YTT 2022)

Her Yoga Teacher Training had a focus on alignment so watch out for her amazing adjusts! Rosie has taught in both Nicaragua and England and is excited to join the Hot Pod family.

Ian

Ian holds a peaceful and calming space, helping attendees to experience the relaxing and revitalising potential of a gong bath.
Over the course of the past decade Ian’s pursuit has broadened, and he began seeking out how music and, more importantly, how sound can dramatically shift our perspective, raise our consciousness, and even help us heal ourselves. Along his path he have studied sound healing and earned a sound practitioner certification through “about gong” with Selma Studer and is fully accredited by the Complementary Medical Association.

Ian uses a mixture of gong, crystal bowls, chimes, voice and other instruments for an authentic experience. Sound meditation has been a huge part of his journey and he feels very passionately about sharing that with others. He has a love for sound for many reasons, but a couple of top ones would be the accessibility and how it fast tracks you into a meditative state.

Lorraine Carter

I have been practising yoga for around 30 years and it has literally become a way of life. First and foremost it provides the relaxation “space” I need, both mentally and physically away from the day to day stress and chaos of the external world.
My mat is the place where I can make the shift to an internal focus, come back to the present moment and truly connect with myself. It’s a place of calm and peace for the mind, where I know I can safely release any anxiety and stress.
The breath is the wind that guides the physical movement and allows the body to flow through postures, with no grasping or clinging, just a gentle easing with curiosity, all the while maintaining that internal awareness and focus.
As well as the many physical benefits of yoga, such as increased flexibility and strength, yoga is a wonderful tool for self enquiry, shifting perspective and facilitating self-change. It creates a calm state of mind which we can carry with us into the daily challenges the world constantly presents us with.

Louise Owen

My yoga journey began 9 years ago when I first attended a class and discovered the magic of yoga. Upon qualifying in March 2020 as a 200-hour vinyasa flow teacher, I started teaching a variety of classes straight away. My classes have a restorative feel, and it gives me life to guide students through classes with a focus on improving their mental well-being

Yoga Teacher, Anita grew up in Blackburn, now Ribble Valley resident and has lived in the area for most of her life. Having heard of a new hot yoga studio open close to her father in laws home in Ruislip, Anita hopped on a train to London and stumbled across Hot Yoga in 2018, she really felt as if she had found her yoga home, loving the combination of the heat, accessible classes and a friendly vibe and was hooked. This resulted in her training as a yoga teacher in 2019, and inspired her to open her own hot yoga studio in Samlesbury, Lancashire.  Anita, is a busy mother of three and a qualified Hot Yoga teacher who has a long standing love for all things healthy and well being related.
Anita has been teaching Yoga in the Ribble Valley for the past three years and has gained lots of knowledge and experience of various yoga styles and teaching to many diverse groups of all abilities, including beginners.
