Jo is a Londoner who started to practice yoga 20 years ago on and off to help deal with stress. After 7 years of trying out classes and teachers she found a Bikram yoga studio that was focused on building strength, flexibility, discipline and personal development through the practice an she was hooked from her first class!

Jo competed in the U.K. yoga championships for the studio in 2008 and has completed numerous trainings, yoga conditioning and intensives with the studio and even did a week yoga intensive whilst being 7 months pregnant!

In 2013 Jo qualified as a yoga teacher in India and continues to study and practice all over the globe to develop her understanding and appreciation of this ancient art that has so many benefits on our modern cultures. As a curious and passionate yogi, Jo’s style of teaching is reflective of her own journey; concentrating on alignment, integrity and loving kindness.

Assisting and seeing students evolve on their own yoga journey is why Jo teaches yoga and share her love for the practice.


Bex practiced yoga for years, but decided to take her love for it further in 2021 when she began her teacher training at Bristol School of Yoga.

She comes to yoga for many reasons such as the benefits to the body, mental health and the sense of grounding and balance it can bring! In class, Bex tries to offer a safe space away from the busyness of life. She loves the idea of finding movement that feels good for each person, knowing that we all come to the practice with different bodies and abilities.


Lucy has trained in the traditional style of Hatha Yoga, which includes the accent system of Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. She has had the pleasure to have been trained and inspired by some of the world’s leading Yoga teachers and is passionate about her own ever evolving practice and teaching. .

Her specific areas of interest are the connection between the mind body and breath. Linking breath with movement and finding space in an ever changing and demanding world. Her personal practice is a free-flowing vinyasa style that involves physical and energetic focus which often weaves into her teaching.


I started practising yoga around 15 years ago in Egypt, coming from a martial arts background but no longer practising or teaching, I needed something to help channel my energy and keep my strength and flexibility, yoga not only provided this but turned my journey inwards physically mentally and spiritually. I took my first training in india 2016 in Ashtanga Yoga and have furthered my education and learning in Jordan, in Hatha/Vinyasa/Kundalini Tantra yoga and also online too.

Anatomy and physiology – the why – is my passion along with the classical tantric philosophy. Providing my students with the tools to not only create a strong vessel/body through movement, but also transforming their inner being to a more conscious balanced state through tantra and philosophy.


I started practicing yoga for the physical benefits, such as flexibility, but then noticed how it positively impacted my emotional well-being, feeling more grounded and less anxious, giving me a sense of calm. I want people doing my class to leave with that same feeling.

the founders

Stephen Reid-Sturrock and Cristine Vasquez-Tan

Stephen & Cristine discovered Hotpod Yoga in Cardiff whilst on a mission to find a great yoga studio. They immediately fell in love with the pod and decided to open their own studio back home in Taunton! A few friendly franchise meetings with the Hotpod Yoga founders led Stephen & Cristine to take the plunge and become franchisees. They began the 200hr Hotpod Yoga Teacher Training course, bought their first Hotpod Home, and made Hotpod Yoga Taunton a reality!
