Yoga And Pilates Classes In Derbyshire

For Beginners And Experienced Students


At Tabitha Yoga in Derbyshire, I offer both Yoga & Pilates classes.  Lets 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 hot, active, sun.  The  feminine aspects are receptive, cool, moon.. It is a way in which we can unite opposites and create balance.  My yoga classes are designed for beginners through to fully experienced yogis. Practising daily in Derbyshire and now, online and on Zoom, where you can join me and practise classes to suit you wherever you are.  In all my Yoga & Pilates classes we develop a balance of strength and flexibility in our physical bodies.

Simply put it is a range of movements called asanas or postures.   At Tabitha Yoga in 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 be more present in each moment.

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates, a physical-culturist from Germany. His father was a prize-winning gymnast from Greece and his mother a naturopath. He studied both Eastern and Western forms of exercise including yoga. During the first half of the twentieth century he developed a system of exercises which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body. He believed that mental and physical health were interrelated. The system of exercises aim to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. Exercises are done on a mat and include various types of apparatus that can provide either resistance or support, depending on desired results. Pilates is suitable for people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes.  As an experienced trainer at Tabitha Yoga I hold regular daytime classes in Derbyshire and now, live on Zoom to suit you wherever you are. Checkout The Class Timetable

The practice of Hatha Yoga & Pilates is not just for women, it is for the body - Everybody from beginners to experienced students. Due to the physical demands of the modern work place, men in particular, can benefit from the lengthening and strengthening of the muscles and bones in the yoga postures, asanas and Pilates routines. Equally importantly the ability to unwind and de-stress from the pressures of work has been highlighted as a key benefit in the concentration of our breath sequences for men too.  So guys, even if you are beginners, if you want to be stronger, fitter, faster and calmer it's time you joined my Hatha Yoga & Pilates classes in Derbyshire and now, online and live on Zoom to suit you wherever you are.
