The festival is currently in its sixth year and runs between the 24 September to the  2 October 2016.

    Hotpod yoga Review

    After enjoying the one yoga class I’ve taken this year, I was looking forward to heading down to Nottinghill on the 12th of September 2016 to try Hotpod Yoga for the first time. I was extremely nervous though, I’ve heard horror stories of Bikram Yoga and really wasn’t sure if I’d be able to keep up with the class. I informed the instructor Estefania Hageman that I’d only been to one class and she assured me I’d be fine. Inside the huge inflatable pod which is heated to 37 degrees, there’s enough room for up to 20 people and today’s…
