In 2009, she started practicing Pilates to complement her yoga practice. She completed a Pilates matwork course with iPilates in 2010 to gain deeper understanding. However, a busy schedule led her Pilates practice to pause for nearly two years, when she accumulated various injuries from her body’s physical imbalances which she never experienced before. Since then, Pilates has become an integral part of her lifestyle, alongside yoga and rock climbing.

The rigours of ballet training and rehearsals led to injuries that forced Tabitha to place her dancing days on hold. A chance opportunity led her on a path of rehabilitation with pilates.
