Hotpod Yoga Pretoria


Mischa Els

Mischa started out selling clothes from a garage at Hotbox studios, a house / music venue which hosted epic house parties. She then started working for a music festival before diving into a role as a TV presenter on local music channel. She's also played festivals and club gigs as Dj Q-ki.
Exited about another great passion of hers, she decided to pack her bags and leave for India where she did her 200h teachers training. From there she taught yoga at a Pilates studio until she finally stumbled upon Hotpod yoga - and from that point it wasn't long before she opened her zips to Hotpod Yoga Pretoria.

The story so far

Mischa, Pretoria founder, has always actively looked for ways to keep her passion for yoga burning brightly. She found hot yoga and used to drive 100km to join classes in Jhb. One night on Instagram her dream of hot yoga in Pretoria flashed in front of her eyes when she saw an idea so extraordinary and conveniently accessible. In July 2014 she started making contact with the two founding fathers of the much anticipated Hotpod and the following year March 2015 she had launched in Pretoria, South Africa.

The true brilliance started unfolding, an experience so authentic that it started making a positive change in people’s lives. A down to earth space for health, friendships, relaxation, strength, flexibility and loads of SWEATY moments.

We’re looking¬†forward to many more moons in the Hotpod.
