Tabitha initially discovered yoga as a phyical practice after first being drawn to meditation teachings as a way to help diminish anxiety linked to past traumas. Transformed by the healing powers of meditation and self inquiry, she eagerly transitioned into exploring yoga postures and developing her practice, before feeling drawn to teacher training.
Completing her 200 hour training with The Soul of Yoga Collective was transformative for Tabitha and an important milestone in continuing on her path of personal growth, helping to illuminate her purpose while bringing her into alignment with her authentic self. Tabitha encourages growth and balance through mindfulness, self-care and values the interconnectedness to each other, to the world and to the Universe. She is deeply moved to help others discover that our thoughts shape our reality, and aims to provide a dose of inspiration in bringing greater awareness to the present moment, body and mind through yoga so that you leave feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
Tabitha has many varied interests, always seeking (and encouraging others) to do more of the things that elicit Joy in each of us. She enjoys writing, traveling, cooking and aside from being a Yoga Teacher, is also grateful to be an Artist, Entrepreneur, and Mother to three wonderful humans.

“I came to yoga searching, not knowing what I’d find. I knew I wanted health not only in my physical body but in my emotional and spiritual body as well. I found a way of life. A breath I had never taken before. A sense of quiet in the mind that spoke louder to me than anything else I’ve tried before to quiet it. Even if just for that moment.
I chose to delve deeper into this love, and obtained my 200 YTT (yoga teacher training) certification and have absolutely fallen into that love with open arms, thoughts and this beautiful heart beating within me. I am blessed to carry the message of self care and peace to my students. Blessed to teach the realization of recognizing the breath in the body and letting it be a healing unlike any other. I came to yoga searching. We do not master yoga, that’s why its called a practice. And practice I shall.
Charlie has always taken an interest in fitness and nutrition as medicine. 7 years ago he began working part-time as a Certified Personal Trainer and obtained certification through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). He’d taken a few yoga classes in the past and only appreciated them on a physical level. It wasn’t until 3 years ago when life threw him some curve balls that he realized yoga was healing him on the inside, on the emotional, mental and spiritual parts of his being. He began to discover and appreciate the powerful grounding and centering forces that yoga, mediation and pranayama practices provide.
