Rashida is a green tea, green smoothie loving yogi who loves to hold space for beginners in her classes. A journey of personal transformation through yoga led her to complete her teacher training in the “World Capital of Yoga”, Rishikesh, India.
Through yoga, Rashida believes that you’re one step closer to being connected to breath, body, and mind. She strives to provide people with the yoga tools they need to live a joyful life, and to blossom into their fullest potential on and off the mat.
Each of her classes feature an intuitive and accessible Vinyasa style.
Kat discovered the magic of yoga at a very early age through her mum who has been practicing yoga for many years. Right from that first sun salutation as a kid (pretending to be a hissing cobra – how exciting!) she was hooked. Practicing regularly through her teens and early 20s, Kat wanted to spread this magical practice to anyone who would listen and qualified as a yoga instructor so she could do just that.
Kat believes that yoga is for everybody and has been a regular at Hotpod Yoga Southampton ever since it opened. She is very excited to be able to welcome people into this space as a teacher!
Ellie began her yoga journey during her exchange program in India in 2011. After practicing Hatha yoga for a number of years she came across vinyasa after moving to the UK, in 2018. She’s a certified hot dynamic vinyasa yoga teacher, and firmly believes in the life changing power of yoga.
From trusting yourself, to challenging your mental and physical limits, coming out the other side empowered, her personal experience taught her that any practice is a journey that begins with believing in yourself.
That is the foundation of every class, along with a strong desire to respect the culture Yoga comes from in all its aspects.
Dana, an accomplished Hatha Yoga yogi, started her journey in 2014 after missing a dance class. She is also certified in Yin, Prenatal & Restorative Yoga. She has grown and discovered that every yoga journey is unique thanks to her exposure to a variety of yoga practices. Dana can be found hiking with her family, making soap, and enjoying a good book when she isn’t in the pod.

Having completed her yoga training with Yoga London, Maria teaches Vinyasa yoga. She loves spending time in nature whether it is hiking, cycling, or taking long walks. She believes immersing oneself in nature can be therapeutic, healing, and grounding.
Yoga has been an integral part of Carly’s life since 2009, and she has been teaching full time since 2018. Carly’s practice has helped her stay physically fit, mentally focused, and energetically balanced. Her teaching style is fun, but always focused on breath, alignment, and awareness, bringing in my philosophy-based interpretation when necessary. Carly is teacher-trained in the Living Yoga Method, authentic Hatha/Hatha Vinyasa yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, Postnatal Yoga and Mum & Baby Yoga.
Her expertise in Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga is enhanced by her years of practice in both the UK and Singapore, where she lived and worked. Shennon’s dynamic personality and passion for the subject leave students entertained and filled with humour during classes.
A strong advocate of Yoga as a physical and mental discipline, she believes yoga offers us the tools necessary for lasting transformation.
