I have been practicing yoga at this studio for six months now and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The hot room is fantastic, the teachers are friendly and the place is welcoming and clean. There is also a very positive vibe. I have practiced yoga before but this is the only studio I keep coming back to. Highly recommended.read more

I wish I had found this place sooner! I have done yoga for over 30 years, but this was the first time trying hot yoga. The teachers Ian and Bene are brilliant and provide alterations for people with different capabilities, so there is a chance to improve even if you are an experienced practitioner. The studio is clean and the ambience is great. I would suggest hiring a mat for a quid if its your first time. And take a bottle of water and a face towel, as you will be covered in sweat. I come away feeling light, happy and peaceful after every class!read more

In Balance is an amazing place! A friend introduced me to it, and I haven’t been able to stop going since. I’m not ‘an exercise person’ and also have a few injuries I needed to be mindful of, but Ian and Benedita have been amazing, really welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable in helping me adjust poses when needed. It’s super energising but I’m sleeping better and am even looking more toned since starting. Can’t recommend it enough!read more

Having just moved to the area I was searching for a new hot yoga centre and I am thrilled to have found an amazing one!

Everyone is very welcoming and the teachers make you feel totally at ease even when you find the positions difficult! You come away from each class feeling amazing!read more

In balance hot yoga is the best yoga class I have ever attended. I had no previous experience of hot yoga, but all I can say is that it has changed my life. You feel energised, refreshed and calm after the class and I am sure the heat in the room contributes to these feelings. If you are suffering from anxiety and stress these classes will help you immensely, as life today can be quite hectic. Everyone is super friendly and the instructors are all amazing :) give it a try !read more

I joined this class because it was recommended by my physiotherapist and I haven't looked back since! I love it, I spend time during the day looking forward to practice, unwind before and during practice and then sleep really well. Everyone is really friendly and they can guide and assist you as much or as little as you need/want. I would highly recommend - I feel healthier in my body and mind! Thank you!read more

A perfect space to practice yoga. The studio and facilities are great - the new heaters are very powerful! Ian and Benedita are welcoming and helpful during each class. I have progressed from the low intensity to medium intensity class and can feel my practice improving with every visit. I’m so glad I started practicing as yoga has had a positive impact on my life and I won’t ever stop. Thanks!read more

Not a bad word to say about this place. I've done yoga at my local leisure centre for a few months but this place steps it up! Fun and challenging full body workouts. The teachers are all very knowledgeable and supportive in your practice helping you to go deeper in to your pose. The studio is always lovely and clean too. Doing yoga in heat is an oddly satisfying experience. I think the sweating allows you to let go and focus on the poses more. I look forward to every class and I can't stop telling everyone I meet about this place (and how good yoga is) 😁read more

I had done yoga at home before but this is a whole new level. So much fun and enthusiasm within the classes and both Bene & Ian make the whole experience exciting, and completely comfortable. Each class is something new and you learn so much. I would highly recommend coming along and joining in. Not only will you feel great but you will have so much fun. Honestly the best class I’ve ever been too! 😊read more

I wasn’t sure at first if Hot Yoga will be for me. But after the 2nd class I was convinced! Give it a try, it’s worth the time! Amazing people with beautiful energies ❤️😇🙏🏻 Thank you Hot Yoga for giving this wonderful gift to the community! Namasteread more
Discovering and becoming a member of the In Balance Hot Yoga community was the single-most, life-altering choice I made last year (2019). It has helped me to reconnect with myself, and in turn, has manifested in renewed and invigorated relationships (most notably, my family - husband and two daughters - and at work/school). My membership to In Balance Hot Yoga is an investment in myself: spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. It has empowered me and helped me regain some sorely-missed and much-needed balance. Thank you to my dear friend, Siema, for introducing me to the In Balance Hot Yoga family! xoread more

If you want to get out of your head & into your body, explore your mind & body sensations, I recomend that you give In Balance Hot Yoga Studio classes a try. It has changed my life in a lot of ways, it has reduced my stress & anxiety, removed my body pains, turned me into a more mindful person. Above all, it cleared away a very heavy black cloud that was on top of my head and made everything more clear. For that I am very grateful. Bene & Ian are pros and very focused in helping others improving their lifes and focusing on what matters. Give it a try. 🙌😊read more
I was so happy to come across In Balance Hot Yoga when looking for a new yoga studio in Southampton. I hadn't done hot yoga before and was initially nervous, however from the first class Ian and Benedita made me feel more than welcome. There is no pressure in the classes- everyone goes at their own pace and I quickly settled in. I've already noticed a real change in my flexibility, and look forward to how far I can go with In Balance.read more
In Balance Hot Yoga - Fantastic. Well taught, exhilarating, fabulous studio, amazing instructors. You are taken through each movement in a clear precise way with several alternatives catering for all abilities. The heat takes this to another level helping your body move into position. These classes leave you feeling physically worked and mentally peaceful. I absolutely love In Balance Hot Yoga. Angela Butnettread more
I would love to say joining in In Balance Hot Yoga is the most correct decision I had made this year. It is a brilliant and fantastic experience I have ever ever felt in my life. After 12 lessons, I feel I am lighter and more active. I am more confident and I know what I want in my life. I am still in my beginner’s level. I feel there are lots of poses I need to learn, to do and to feel. Half Pigeon pose, Tree pose and Fish pose are the three poses I was not able to do from the beginning. But after watching Top Tips Friday, practicing in classes times by times, they are the three poses I’d love the most. Hot Yoga gives me motivation to do things which I will never ever think about before. A big THANK YOU to you!read more
Great atmosphere,amazing people. I would love to recommend you this place. It feels right from the first time!
Excellent!! Classes are always very different and continue to challenge you, yet also allowing you to go at your own pace/level. Above all the atmosphere in the studio is incredibly welcoming and friendly. The teachers here are excellent and very knowledgable. I would recommend In Balance Hot Yoga to anyone and everyone, no matter their Yoga level. Thank you for such wonderful practises! 🧘♀️🧘♂️read more
It has been two weeks since I started my yoga practice. I went to try at the open day the 7th October, and I trully enjoy it!

Made to feel relaxed and welcome. Not new to yoga but new to hot yoga and wow what a difference, hard work but felt amazing, I imagine doing this regularly will really improve my practice 🌸🧘♀️🌸read more
Benedita and Ian are both very knowledgeable and encouraging teachers. I’ve done quite a few of the All Levels Dynamic class and it’s a great workout. It challenges you to try new things but you can also go at your own pace for what works for your body at the time. The studio space is great as well. I would definitely recommend yogis of all levels to come give it a try! You’ll definitely feel great and accomplished after completing a class!read more
Tried last Sunday’s free class! It was wonderful. I was completely rusty after not going to a class for about 4 years, but loved every second of it! Felt so good afterwards and the next day I could feel the workout in my muscles! The flow was great, relaxation was wonderful and the teacher was amazing! Thank you! Namaste �read more
In Balance Hot Yoga is great! Both Benedita and Ian are fab teachers... Very calming and know their stuff � The classes are very thought out, friendly and challenge you to push yourself � Their recent outdoor classes have been beautiful... Would definitely recommend to any level, as they are more than welcoming and are always happy to help �read more
I am just completing an introductory £30 for 15 days at the studio. I haven't done Yoga for years, too many to recall. What I have found is attentive teachers a variety of classes and lovely students, and the studio is just right and warm (sometimes hot). I have decided to take out a years membership and work across the classes to be challenged and work at a lesser pace to challenge and reward myself to a more flexible body and calmer approach to live. Now just need to get my own mat!read more

Wow, I just finished the men’s hot yoga class with Ian and I’m buzzing! The class is amazing. I practice Kickboxing and this is really going to benefit my flexibility. I got into positions I’ve not been able to do for years! Thank you so much Ian, I’ll be back next week :-)read more

The new studio is amazing! So excited to try out all the new types of classes available.I joined In Balance back in October or so, and usually try different things out and move on to the next thing. However I have stuck with IB because I can tell how much better I am becoming at yoga thanks to the quality of the classes and the teachers’ guidance. Thanks for everything. 🌟read more
I've just come back from the hip opener workshop and my body feels amazing. My hip and lower back feels better than it has for a long time. Benedita was great in her delivery of the class, explaining the muscles around the hips we would be concentrating on in a clear concise way. I will be signing up for classes and another workshop soon. Thank you! And thank you to Ian for the coconut energy ball, it was a perfect snack to end the class.read more
My first practice in a class for while! The new studio is great so nice to have two rooms as well! Nice one Bene and Ian! Looking forward to tomorrow's class!read more
I'm loving the new studio! The opening this week has gone really smoothly and I've already enjoyed a warm vinyasa class and a yin yoga class. Both classes were great, and it's so nice to be able to mix it up and try different styles. The facilities at the new studio are fab and I'm excited to be a part of the community there. Bene and Ian have been brilliant teachers for the 6 months I was going to Harbour Lights so I can't wait to see what the future holds in the new studio. Looking forward to the hip opener workshop on Saturday, eek!read more
Amazing, welcoming and clean . Good choice of different classes. Higly recommended !
So relaxed after Yin Yoga � I could do with this after work every day!
The in balance hot yoga is an amazing community. The classes run by Ian and Bene are fully of energy, relaxation, mindfulness and self-awareness (and they would really work your body too!!). The new studio is a lovely place where everyone can feel at home, make friends and discover the best of yoga. Definitely recommend it to everyone: experienced yogies as well as total beginners!read more
I never imagined that practising Hot Yoga could get even better until I experienced the new studios yesterday ! Wow they are lovely and so wonderful to do yoga in. If you have never experienced yoga with Inbalance Hot Yoga before, than I urge you to try asap ! The sessions are challenging to a degree but you are encouraged to go at your own pace in a very safe space. It is exhilarating and relaxing at the same time. You’re encouraged to push your boundaries and overcome fears. I’m 51 but in the classes I feel 25 !read more
The long awaited studio is open! The space is fantastic with plenty of room for lots of yogi's. I was lucky enough to do two classes yesterday. Warm yoga flow and hot dynamic, both different and enjoyable in their own ways. It has been so lovely to have been with b and ian from when they only had two classes a week at harbour lights to the first day in the new studio. I can't wait to see what the future holds :-)read more
Love it! Have needed this in my life for years (literally!). You guys took a long time coming but you arrived eventually 😂 I was thrilled to find Bene and Ian’s classes nearly a year ago now and I always look forward to the weekend to practise in class. I find I am able to practise at home during the week and always enjoy the workout immensely! I can’t wait for the new studio opening in April and the class timetable additions. Thank you and keep doing what you’re doing so brilliantly ❤️read more
Fantastic, friendly yoga studio!I have fallen in love with hot yoga which is something I never thought I would say. Although still very much a beginner, in balance hot yoga practices and guidance have helped me reduce flare ups from chronic disease and tackle anxiety. I can feel tone and strength building in my body with a few classes per week!In Balance Hot Yoga has also made my difficult move to Southampton much easier!read more
An amazingly friendly environment with a variety of classes to suit all yogis. I've practised various styles of yoga in different countries and studios over the years - there's definitely something special about Benedita and Ian's studio. I'm more aware about my body after each session and I really like how they correct your posture - to be honest I always felt intimidated by teachers correcting me until now. Highly recommended!read more
You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state. The teachers are all so nice and create such a lovely atmosphere. They are very attentive and kind to you, correcting your poses to improve. IBHY is highly recommended for everyone.read more
Our incredible team!
We’re not about gimmicks or fads, just good yoga that leaves you feeling reset, aligned in your body, and clear and calm in your mind.
