You will also hear how the project brings about a real change in perspective for the Grammar School pupils who visit year on year.

Hotpod Yoga Derby

Marketing Derby Bondholder Hotpot Yoga Derby is delighted to invite fellow Bondholders to join them in celebrating its 1st birthday with a yoga practice in the famous purple pod. Many Bondholders have come to love the practices, and classes have increased from 9 per week to a mind-boggling 33 to cope with the demand of Derby folk looking for some time-out from their busy lives.

The 20 person inflatable pod is heated to 37 degrees to supercharge the yoga experience and afterwards, your mind will be a little calmer; your body a little looser, and yes – you’ll be a whole lot sweatier.

Many Bondholders have requested a class to introduce them to Hotpod Yoga so here is your opportunity to try it for yourself in a relaxed and fun environment and all ages and abilities will be welcome.

Join the Founder of the Derby franchise, Leah McLaren, in the pod for a one hour class which will be followed by cupcakes to toast their first birthday and a chance to find out more about how the classes can benefit you.

There will be two classes to accommodate as many as possible so please respond in the normal way and note your preferred date in the additional notes section.

All you need to bring is a towel and a bottle of water. There is a shower room onsite, however, only one shower so you may need to leave a little extra time.

Time: 12.30-1.45pm
