We are a premium hot yoga and pilates studio situated within The Thames Club, Surrey.
We opened our doors in January 2018 and year one was amazing! Our community is growing, our students are developing and we continue to welcome first timers into classes every single day. Designed by Amanda Free, the UK’s first Hot Yoga Teacher, our studio is a beautiful space in which one can move, unwind and switch off from the outside world. Our unique classes are designed to give our students a progressive experience, for both mind & body. We aim to help our students bring physical and mental focus and balance back into your busy lives.
Our Story and Our People…
Hot Yoga Club was born from two people’s love for hot yoga. All of our thanks go to Peter Williams and Amanda Free who joined forces to launch the studio and create the amazing space we get to practice in every day. Read more about their stories below….

Peter Williams, Managing Director at The Thames Club & Co-Founder Pete’s love for hot yoga began in 2014 when his wife suggested he should give it a try as it could be something they could enjoy together and would complement his other training activities like martial arts. Always up for new experiences he decided to give it a go and visited Amanda Free’s hot yoga studio in Surbiton. Starting out on a one month trial membership, after 2 weeks he was totally hooked! Over the next few years he continued to practice and through this time he became good friends with Amanda, learning what an incredibly talented and inspirational character she is. So, a beautiful journey to Hot Yoga Club began…Amanda agreed to help create Hot Yoga Club with Pete and the renovations started. You’ll often see Pete in class next to you on the mat getting his sweat on so say hello to him next time you’re in downward facing dog!
Amanda Free, Lead Teacher & Co-Founder of Hot Yoga Club Amanda first stepped into a hot yoga studio in L.A. in her teens and she was not impressed with her first class. She tried to leave but her teacher persuaded her to stay. After class she felt so good that she returned day after day and the rest is history. Amanda went on to complete her teacher training in the 90’s and the following year she returned home bringing hot yoga with her becoming the UK’s first hot yoga teacher. She’s been teaching non-stop ever since. In 2017, she partnered up with Pete Williams putting her years of experience and flair for design to the test to help create our Hot Yoga Club. Amanda has also co-founded and designs her own brand of workout leggings called ‘TigerBFree’ which can often be spotted around the club and purchased at Reception and via the MindBody app. Amanda teaches Hot Yoga, BFree and Sculpt classes every week.
