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. 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.

Sarita is an Artist and Yoga teacher. She has always loved fitness but struggled to find a bridge between fitness and creativity. Yoga is the perfect tool to train body, mind and spirit whilst still maintaining creative freedom and the pod is the perfect environment for this. Sarita trained with Yoga London and has been on a journey ever since.


Sarah has been practicing yoga since her early 20’s and completed her 500 hour Yoga Teacher Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2016. She went on to teach classes in yoga studios across London and Nottinghamshire before moving to Essex in 2017. Sarah believes there is a yoga practice to suit everyone; her classes are welcoming and creative and have a strong focus on safe alignment in every pose.


Sophie hails all the way from Australia and made the big move to England in 2016. She is a mum to three young boys, including twins. She was first drawn to Hotpod yoga as a tool to calm the chaos of motherhood and fell in love. She completed her 200hr Teacher Training at Camyoga in January 2020 with the hopes of passing the love of yoga on to others in an inclusive and supportive environment. She believes yoga benefits all bodies regardless of age, shape and ability and wants to empower people to come to the mat as they are.


Nicola moved to Essex from London in 2012 and completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Diploma and Hot Yoga Teacher Training at Camyoga the following year.  She went on to teach both yoga flow and hot yoga until March 2015 when she took a break to have her son.  Nicola returned to teaching as the director of Hotpod Yoga Saffron Walden which started up in February 2016 and she has loved bringing yoga to her community ever since.

After meeting HPY ​co-​founder, Max, at the Om Yoga Show at Alexandra Palace in 2015, she knew Hotpod was where she was meant to be. A short 3 months later, HPY Saffron Walden opened, calming the minds and working the bodies of Essex ever since January 2016!
