At Shine With Tabitha Yoga in Belper Derbyshire, we offer a wide range of Yoga & Pilates classes.  Let's look at each class a little deeper. Those of you who are beginners may not know the origins of Hatha Yoga.  The word Hatha is translated as "ha" meaning “sun” and "tha" meaning “moon.” In classes, it relates to the balance of masculine and feminine aspects within all of us.  The masculine aspects are the hot, active, sun.  The feminine aspects are the receptive, cool, moon. It is a way in which we can unite opposites and create balance.

Our yoga classes are designed for beginners through to fully experienced yogis and they run daily at Shine With Tabitha Yoga studio in Belper, Derbyshire.  In all our Yoga & Pilates classes we develop a balance of strength and flexibility in our physical bodies.

Simply put Hatha Yoga is a range of movements called asanas or postures.   At Shine With Tabitha Yoga in Belper, Derbyshire, classes consist of sequences of asanas, designed to align your muscles and bones.  The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body, particularly the spine.  This way energy can flow freely. The practice of Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to calm the mind and body.

Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that connects breath with movement. In this practice, you move seamlessly from one pose to another, creating a beautiful and graceful sequence.

The word "vinyasa" means "to place in a special way," and that's exactly what you do - you intentionally place your body in different poses while coordinating your breath.

One of the major benefits of practicing vinyasa yoga is its ability to build strength and flexibility. As you flow through the sequences, you engage your muscles and gradually increase your range of motion.

This not only tones your body but also improves your overall physical performance. Vinyasa yoga also helps to improve balance and coordination, as the transitions between poses require focus and stability.

Another advantage of vinyasa yoga is its ability to calm the mind and reduce stress. The intentional breathing combined with the continuous movement creates a moving meditation that promotes mindfulness and relaxation. This can help you release tension, improve mental clarity, and cultivate a sense of inner peace.

Moreover, vinyasa yoga is a great cardiovascular workout. The continuous flow of movements raises your heart rate and improves circulation. This can boost your energy levels, enhance your stamina, and help you burn calories.

Vinyasa yoga is also known for its detoxifying effects on the body. Deep breathing and twisting poses stimulate the lymphatic system, which aids in the removal of toxins from the body.

In conclusion, vinyasa yoga is a beautiful practice that offers numerous benefits for both the body and mind. So, if you're looking to improve your strength, flexibility, mental clarity, and overall well-being, why not give our vinyasa yoga classes a try at Shine With Tabitha Yoga?

Pilates, the incredible workout method, was designed by the visionary Joseph Pilates, a remarkable physical culturist hailing from Germany. Born to a father who was an esteemed gymnast from Greece and a mother who was a naturopath, Pilates was destined to revolutionize the fitness industry.

Drawing inspiration from both Eastern and Western exercise practices, including the likes of yoga, Joseph Pilates spent the first half of the twentieth century developing a comprehensive system of exercises that aimed to strengthen not only the body but also the mind.

His philosophy was simple yet profound - mental and physical health are deeply interconnected.

With this belief in mind, Joseph Pilates crafted a series of exercises that targeted both the mind and body simultaneously, aiming to create a harmonious balance between the two.

The focus of his method was to strengthen the entire body evenly but with a particular emphasis on building a strong core.

Why is core strength so important, you may ask? Well, Joseph Pilates firmly believed that a strong core was the foundation for overall fitness and well-being. By engaging the muscles of the abdomen, lower back, hips, and pelvis, Pilates exercises help to improve posture, balance, and stability.

Not only that, but a strong core can also enhance the efficiency of movement and reduce the risk of injury during daily activities or other forms of exercise.

So, whether you are a fitness enthusiast looking to enhance your general fitness and well-being or someone recovering from an injury seeking a safe and effective way to rebuild strength, we've got you covered with our Pilates Classes at Shine With Tabitha Yoga!

With its holistic approach and emphasis on core strength, Pilates offers a pathway towards a healthier, more balanced life. So come on, give our Pilates classes a try, and experience the transformative power they have to offer. Checkout The Class Timetable
