Meet Adam, a professional theatre performer, yoga teacher and health care professional.

His journey to yoga started in 2009 at theatre school, utilizing the practice to prepare the body and mind for stage and after several years of developing a deeper insight into yoga, he took the plunge and became certified in 2020.

Under the Hatha branch of yoga, his primary style is Vinyasa, weaving sequences together that are both demanding and strong, slow and considerate, playful and light, bringing the body, mind, emotion and energy into balance.

All practice is approached with a consciousness that every body is different and every mind has it’s own thing going on. He provides modifications and insists on the use of props to get the best out of every pose.

As your guide, he hopes to create a warm and non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe to meet yourself where you are, to feel what you need to feel, and perhaps aid in overcoming present challenges.


I discovered yoga as a student in 2006 with my first ever class beginning day 1 of a Bikram 30 day challenge when I lived in New Zealand. 90 minutes a day, 42 degree temperature for 30 days straight, that was it, I was hooked!! The heat, the intensity, the pain, the mental and physical challenge opened up a new world of building myself back up and re discovering my connection with self (still working on improving this)

At 46 and only just this year, I’ve finally achieved a 12 year dream to complete my 200 ytt in India and with it brings a deep love for my personal practice of Ashtanga yoga.

What I hope to bring to this wonderful studio, epic team and students is a little sunshine. Yoga is a daily way of life for me and Id love to be able to share the benefits with as many as I can to enable you the joy of being set up energetically for your day ahead and to connect back into self through the practice.

My biggest personal challenges through my journey of yoga have been to calm my ego, allowing my vulnerability to be seen (among the most uncomfortable of experiences) and patience with myself and my happy healthy body which can’t quite do what it once used to

Yoga is truly an individual journey. I would like my space to be genuinely comfortable for however you show up on the day, however that looks and to leave with just a little more sunshine inside you”


I’m Bex, your yoga teacher with a passion for creating a deeper connection on and off the mat. My yoga journey began in 2012 when I stepped onto a yoga mat in my local gym. Little did I know, it would be so much more than just physical movement. Yoga opened up a world of self-discovery, deepening the relationship to myself and others. In 2021, I decided to take my love for yoga to the next level by training at Bristol School of Yoga (BSY) and specialising in Hatha and Restorative Yoga. I love the holistic benefits to the body and mind and the healing effects yoga can bring.

As your instructor, I aim to create a welcoming and soothing environment in every class. I understand that each individual is unique, bringing their own body and ability to the practice and that’s why I encourage everyone to explore movements that feel good for them, embracing all of our unique differences on the mat. So, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or completely new to the practice, I am here to guide you on your yoga journey. Get ready to let the stresses of the day melt away during this calm and nourishing evening flow.


After discovering yoga during my time at my local gym, I had the pleasure of practicing with the incredible Lucy, who also happened to be a Hotpod Yoga teacher, who inspired me to pursue my own yoga journey. Yoga, for me, is a sanctuary where I can connect with my mind and body, leaving behind the chaos of daily life. We all know how hectic things can get! In 2020, I embarked on my Level 3 Yoga Diploma, and shortly after that, I attained my 200hr teacher training qualification.

My mission is to create a safe and welcoming space for all students. I want everyone to feel comfortable and know that I relate to their unique experiences. I firmly believe that yoga is for everyone, regardless of flexibility. Each time you step onto the mat, there’s something special waiting for you, and it may look different every time. Join me on my mat and and together, let’s explore the boundless possibilities that yoga offers!


I’m Cristine, and from an early age, I’ve been captivated by the power of the body in motion. As a fitness and wellness enthusiast, I always sought strength and vitality, but there was a missing piece in my journey – Yoga!

Discovering the harmonious blend of physical practice, mindfulness, and the art of breath transformed my personal well-being and athletic performance. In 2018, I embarked on a transformative yoga training, and since then, there’s been no looking back. What truly fuels my passion is witnessing the progress and growth of my students. Guiding and supporting individuals on their unique paths fills me with an indescribable joy. Teaching, for me, is an incredible privilege and an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

In my classes, you can expect a vibrant and invigorating experience. I aim to infuse a sense of fun and energy into our practice, while also creating a grounded and centered space. With a gentle touch of softness and encouragement, I strive to cultivate an environment where you can explore, grow, and connect with your inner self. So, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or new to the practice, I invite you to join me on this transformative journey. Let’s embark on a path of self-discovery, strength, and vitality together.


I’m Becky, and my journey into teaching started with my passion for group exercise classes. I’ve always been into fitness, but it was my love for Yoga that truly captured my heart. I had been practicing on and off, but when Hotpod Yoga Taunton opened its doors, I dove headfirst into a more consistent practice. Let me tell you, I fell head over heels for Yoga!

Initially, I saw Yoga as a way to improve my flexibility and get moving, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that it’s so much more than that. Whenever I feel anxious or stressed, Yoga is my go-to remedy. The way it connects my breath and mind-body is truly magical.

The more I experienced these incredible benefits, the more I wanted to learn. So, I took the plunge and completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Cheltenham back in September 2020. But I didn’t stop there! I went on to complete an additional 300 hours of training, including Yin, Ashtanga, and mindfulness, totaling my training hours to an impressive 500!

When it comes to teaching, my style revolves around a fluid and flowing Vinyasa practice. I love emphasizing the breath as the bridge between body and mind, creating a space where we can find strength and softness in our asanas. It’s this unique approach that I bring to my teaching in the cozy pod.

So, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or just starting out on your journey, I can’t wait to share the joy and transformative power of Yoga with you. Join me in the pod, and let’s create magic on the mat together!


I stumbled upon the transformative magic of yoga during my spontaneous travels in 2018. It was in Australia, where fitness and well-being were celebrated as an integral part of life, that I discovered the perfect blend of fun and grounding. With the breathtaking backdrop of beautiful beaches and the glorious weather, daily movement became an absolute delight!

Yoga has infused my life with a sense of slowness and tranquility. It has gifted me with inner and outer strength, nurturing my self-confidence every single day. Since my serendipitous encounter, my personal practice has flourished and evolved. And in 2021, I proudly completed my Hatha 200HYTT certification online.

In my classes, you can expect a vibrant atmosphere filled with smiles, dedication, and laughter. I believe in celebrating our bodies and the incredible things they do for us each day. Together, we’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery, embracing every moment with pride and gratitude.

So, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a curious beginner, I invite you to join me on the mat. Let’s create a space where fun and grounding intertwine, where you can unlock your true potential and bask in the beauty of your own strength.
