About Us

Powerful Vehicle for Change !

In Balance Hot Yoga has been created by myself, Benedita and my partner Ian, to offer to the people of Southampton a challenging and powerful yoga style that speaks to the heart.

The creation of Southampton Yogi community is in its first legs, having a few classes available on the weekly basis and building up as our community grows. We started with 2 classes back in April and now we have 10 !!!

At In Balance Hot Yoga we offer hot yoga classes and workshops, taking place on the top floor of the cinema Harbour Lights Picture House, in Southampton. Great venue and with amazing views over the harbour! 

The hot yoga classes are heated up, between 25C - 30C, to enable our bodies to detox, to enhance flexibility quicker, also allowing us to go deeper, it prevents risk of injury, at the same time it helps recover from injury.  

There is a real feel of community and authenticity in our classes. 

You can expect our yoga classes to be fun, dynamic, high energy, fat burning and ( the cherry on the top :-) ) you get to feel relaxed and ready to take on the world ! 

Myself and Ian have a few year’s experience teaching in London, having worked in yoga studios with true community feel and passionate yogis. We aim to create the 1st Hot Yoga Studio in Southampton, a safe haven in amongst the busyness of our lives where you can step out, recharge and then carry on with the rest of your day with a spring in your step. 

We believe the more you practise the better you feel, so come and join us on our fantastic intro offer of 15 days for £30 - available to all newcomers.

Looking forward to practice some yoga together :-) !

Our Yoga Teachers

Benedita Sousa

When I first went to a yoga class at Hot Power Yoga in London, I was immediately hooked. 

After so many years trying different things to match my high energy personality, from dancing to volleyball, only this dynamic yoga vinyasa style of yoga gave me all I needed.  

My journey started in 2011, yoga helped me get through depression, to love myself and my body and has also helped me to gain the confidence I needed to succeed professionally.  

Since my teacher training I have been able to share my love of yoga and inspire people to take on this life practise.  

Whilst at the top of my career as a Hotel General Manager in Southampton, I left the corporate world behind and decided to follow my dream of touching other souls in ways that only oneself can understand. 

Here I am today launching the 1st Hot Yoga Classes and Workshops in Southampton with plans to expand to a full time studio. 

Namaste !

After thinking that Yoga was all about hugging the trees, I completely changed my understanding of yoga when my girlfriend convinced me to give it a go and join her in one class. 

Surprisingly I really enjoyed it and found it very beneficial to complement my gym workouts, climbing and my motorbike passion. 

I became a teacher so that I inspire other guys to take on Yoga for its fitness benefits but also because we all need, at times, to quieten the mind. On a mat and in a hot room is the perfect place!

We are the only ones teaching Hot Vinyasa Yoga in Southampton, that's very exciting :)

See you in class !
