Sweat instructors come from all walks of life but we all have one thing in common, we're dead normal (oh, and we love yoga...but that kinda goes without saying).

Sweat Instructors

Our classes are about you, not us. You won’t be left twiddling your thumbs while we crack out our latest moves. We know that being a great instructor is about leading a class, not showing you what we can do. So whatever your reason for turning up, whatever your ability, we’ll help you every step of the way.

Ali Futrill

Lead Sweat instructor and official yoga teacher to the MK Dons and Northampton Saints, Ali began yoga while living in Thailand as a way to stay fit. While her first class filled her with terror as she struggled to touch her toes, she soon got over her nerves (and her tight hamstrings) and she’s never looked back. Ali completed her teacher training with Absolute Yoga in Asia in 2007.

Jules Buchanan

An avid runner, Jules always felt she wasn’t really exercising if she didn’t work up a sweat. Too much high impact activity forced Jules to find an alternative exercise regime. Inspired by the fitness-led approach at Sweat, she decided to give yoga a go. She soon found that hot yoga gave her the all-round workout she desired. Jules graduated from our teacher training programme in 2017 and, after teaching part-time alongside a corporate role, recently ditched the day job and joined as a permanent member of the Sweat team.

Lucinda Memery

Lucinda was so inspired by Sweat’s no nonsense approach to yoga, that she decided to throw in the towel on her London commute and join the Sweat team! She completed her initial teacher training in 2015 and has continued to learn and grow as an instructor ever since taking on more and more classes. She now combines her teaching with her Studio Management role.

Claire Abercrombie

Claire started practising yoga over 10 years ago. An avid Sweaty, she took the leap from practitioner to teacher in 2017, graduating with flying colours from Sweat’s hot yoga teacher training programme. Keen to add more strings to her bow, Claire has already started training in other forms of yoga and now balances teaching with her full-time PR job. 

Kirsty Lowe

Kirsty is the founder of Sweat. Seeing a need to deliver yoga to people who didn’t want the incense and gongs often associated with it, she hung up her corporate suit and went off to teacher training with Absolute Yoga in Asia in 2013. Kirsty loves the amazing combination of cardio, strength and flexibility a hot yoga class can deliver and brings her no nonsense approach to life to her teaching.

Kelly Hunt

A true fitness fan, but sadly suffering years of injuries, Kelly was able to find balance in her training regime with our classes, without compromising on the workout she loved. Kelly joined Sweat’s Yoga Teacher Training Programme in 2018, realising a dream she had had for some time to take her yoga to the next level. We’re delighted to welcome Kelly to the timetable as she balances her yoga teaching with her full-time role in HR.

Sarah K-Hirji

A speech and language therapist by day, Sarah was first attracted to yoga as she strived for a healthier lifestyle. It didn’t take long until she was hooked and she completed her teacher training in Florida in 2012. Flow yoga is Sarah’s passion and she likes nothing more than to rock some strong moves to a funky playlist.
