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.


Adam’s yoga practice has ebbed and flowed throughout the years. At first he practiced to build confidence for performing on stage then the embodiment of philosophy came into play and it changed his life. In his yoga classes he infuses expressive movement, a playful nature and a conscious approach that all bodies are different. He truly believes in the transformational power of yoga and wants to share it with the world with the hope of making it a more wonderful place to be in.


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.


I first started yoga around 2 years ago, after going self employed as an electrician – I was looking for something to help with stress, range of movement and to ease the back pain/stiffness that I had noticed – immediately I was hooked and started going to all the gym classes. I then found hot pod through my sister and became a regular! I hope to bring focus and better awareness of the body to my classes.


Having worked in mental health as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner for the NHS in London, Gemma is only too aware of the detrimental effect our hectic schedules can have on our mental health. With a strong desire to help people help themselves, especially in such uncertain times, she believes there is no better place to start than on your mat, in the pod.

Having come to yoga relatively recently, she completed her teacher training with Hotpod and loves the focus yoga brings, whilst building strength and calming the mind. She wants to share these benefits with others, by bringing energy, warmth and most importantly a smile to her classes!

Changing scenery from busy city life to Somerset’s lush green pastures altered Lena’s perspective on life and that’s when yoga found a place. Having benefitted from many years of yoga she realised how much she would like to share this amazing philosphy with others, and so completed her yoga teacher training. Yoga truly is for everyone, that’s why Lena enjoys teaching people with injuries and complete beginners to help improve quality of their life. She also teaches advanced classes to people who would like to deepen their practice and find new routes on their yoga path. There is a place on the mat for everyone whether it is for health benefits, physical improvements in flexibility and tone, mindfulness or spiritual depth. Mind and body are integrated in the overall holistic nature of yoga practice, enabling a deeper connection to your true nature and place in the world.

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!
