Hatha ‘Yoga in York’ with Tamsin is a wonderful way to improve flexibility and strength, de-clutter the mind, become more focused, relaxed, find inner balance and let go of the past and breathe!
Yoga evolved several thousand years ago in India. Indian sages believed that by training the physical body they could also train the mind, improving concentration and finding their inner self, inspired by nature and the world around them. They observed the animals and watched their behaviour which led to the discovery of a range of postures that made humans feel good. They noticed the trees were both strong and flexible. They were rooted firmly in the ground whilst their branches moved freely in the wind. Yogis believe humans can be happier if they are flexible like a tree, yet grounded and strong, standing tall like a mountain.
What we now know in the west today as Hatha Yoga, brings together the mind, the body, and the breath and has evolved from these beginnings. Yoga is a journey that can be embarked upon at any time in life. It can be practised by anyone no matter how fit they are. Classes are suitable for men and women and it doesn’t matter what age you are.
Yoga is different from other forms of exercise as it doesn’t involve violent muscle movement which can cause fatigue, muscle stiffness, and injury. Instead, yoga counteracts these effects through breathing, gentle stretching, and relaxation.

” I was a total beginner to yoga when I joined Tamsin’s class. I was nervous at first about what to expect, over the weeks I improved and feel in love with yoga! Tamsin taught me how to do each pose properly and to get my breathing right; she also gets to know everyone in the class and tailors everything to people of all abilities. She also tests and push us to try new things, taking a pose a bit further, that’s always fun! I now feel inspired to continue doing yoga and carry on improving” ” Thanks for being an incredible yoga teacher ” Sarah
