About Hotpod Yoga

This is yoga, reinvented. We’ve created a truly immersive environment for a supercharged yoga experience. An otherworldly cocoon of glowing lights, heady aromas and enveloping soundscapes, taking you a million miles from the everyday. Breathe deeper, stretch further,
sweat harder, and really, really melt into it.

As a business, Hotpod Yoga is built upon two key features:

  • Delivering yoga in its most potent form. Our beautiful and innovative heated pods, signature aromatherapy blends and curated playlists of immersive soundscapes create the optimum yoga environment.
  • A powerful franchise model. We’re proud to have empowered yoga instructors and entrepreneurs around the world to launch and grow their own Hotpod businesses.

Already established in over 50 locations around the world, we've become Europe’s largest yoga business, but we've still got a long way to go. We're growing fast and full of ambition. If we’re to grow into a household name in key markets, and become one of the leading names in the fitness industry, we need to build a genuinely powerful brand with a team of highly talented people at its core.

Extra Details


Hotpod Yoga is Europe’s largest yoga brand on a mission to reinvent yoga for the modern world. Having grown to 60+ locations, across 8 countries and a customer base of over 150,000 people in only 6 years, the company is growing fast and is full of ambition. While the business has made great progress, we also recognise that we’ve got a long way to go. If we’re to grow into a household name in key markets, and become one of the leading names in the fitness industry, we need to build a genuinely powerful brand with a team of highly talented people at its core.

Hotpod Yoga is founded on three key things:

  • Beautiful, innovative, pods - 20 person inflatable studios - that create the optimum yoga environment
  • A strong, consistent brand to attract the widest audience possible, taking yoga out of its niche and into the mainstream
  • A powerful franchise model – giving yoga instructors and entrepreneurs the opportunity to own their own Hotpod Yoga business


To put it simply, it’s a pretty great feeling to work with a group of people who all genuinely love what they do. It’s a fast-paced environment (we know everyone says that, but we actually mean it) and with so many exciting projects, it means that even when hours are long, you’ll go home feeling like you’ve really accomplished something. Being part of a small but supercharged team means that you’ll have a lot of responsibility, so be ready to get stuck in. If you’re looking for the kind of lacklustre job where you can skate by on minimal effort, this isn’t the one for you!
