Our studio is located at the Ruislip Manor crossroads next to the Anytime Fitness gym. 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. • Please arrive dressed for class and ready to go! • Our staff will be wearing masks in the studio, except while teaching. Please also wear a mask in the communal spaces outside the pod. • We won’t be providing blocks or straps (but you’re welcome to bring your own). • We’ll be practicing with the pod doors open for extra ventilation. • The pod will be deep cleaned and aired out between each class. • We request that you bring your own mat to class (there will be a small number for hire should you need one from us). • 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 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. Any questions? Ping us an email. Team HPY xx

She joined Hotpod as a member in 2022 and loved how the heat helped her practice by pushing her limits and allowing her to reset after each flow. Jema then completed her Yoga Teacher Training in Bali, qualifying her to teach Vinyasa and Hatha, but she also likes to add elements of Power and Restorative yoga into her flows.

Vivian Kemp

Originally from Hong Kong, Vivian is a law graduate turned online marketing executive turned full-time mum, part-time yoga teacher. She first came to yoga in her twenties through classes at the corporate workplace, eventually turning a casual practice into a more mindful pursuit after the demands of full-time motherhood led to greater self-care, coming to yoga to literally take a breather, to recalibrate, to regain equilibrium.

Vivian has a penchant for Vinyasa for its fluidity and variability. Her classes are energising and light-hearted, though slow and deep at times, with a strong focus on careful alignment and controlled yet exploratory movement, welcoming each and every one to seek their own balance between effort and ease, to experience their own yoga. Her intention is to help students appreciate that there is no such thing as being “good” or “bad” at yoga, and that all the strength we need is already within us.

Bhavisha Pankhania

Bhavisha is a teacher of yoga, meditation and other forms of healing. She was first drawn to yoga due to the influence it had on the lives of her family members, with several instructors in the fold, the attraction was always there, but the discipline was lacking. Bhavisha needed to discover the art and lifestyle for herself, and once she did, her life changed forever.

Its been 15 years now since Bhavisha started walking this path of healing. The more she learnt about and integrated these beautiful practices into her daily life, the clearer it was that she’d found her purpose. To share her knowlege and experience to all those who seek it. Bhavisha believes yoga and meditation is that tool.

Through body awareness, mindfulness, self introspection and consistent practice we can find freedom from constraints and become who we are truly meant to be.

Anna’s classes are fun and challenging, but will make you feel comfortable on the mat whether you’re a beginning or a regular yogi. Most importantly, she encourages her students to trust themselves and their body’s abilities, so that they will leave feeling motivated, invigorated and proud of what they have achieved!

Manish Ramji

Being Cabin Crew for an international airline for over 26 years, as well as a keen gym goer, takes its toll on both the body as well as the mind. To find a balance, an equilibrium and to feel grounded again I started yoga over 10 years ago.

Through yoga I noticed how my relationship was improving not just with others but with myself and after reaping the benefits both physically and emotionally, I decided to share this gift and have been teaching since 2016.

Constantly learning and exploring as well as keeping a very open mind is something that is second nature to me. My style is mostly power and dynamic based but most importantly with my sense of humour I want everyone to have fun and feel amazing because yoga is an individual journey after all.
