This class fuses Vinyasa and Hatha style classes in a room heated to 90F+. We recommend that you have some yoga experience before trying out this class. Hot yoga delivers many benefits including; Increased Flexibility: Warm muscles allow for greater flexibility and range of motion Increased Circulation: Infrared heat opens up the capillaries, which oxygenates the organs and lowers blood pressure Detoxifying Sweat: Infrared heat causes water molecules in the body to vibrate, which wrings out the organs and creates a detoxifying sweat. Weight Loss : When the body absorbs infrared heat, its natural cooling system kicks in, which burns calories and promotes weight loss Pain Relief: Infrared heat directly penetrates tissue, muscles and joints, allowing them to heal and relax.
Buti Yoga® (45-60 minutes) A moving yoga practice fused with plyometrics and tribal dance. Promotes weight-loss, strength gain, and mind-body connection!!!
Buti is a Marathi word that means the “cure to healing something hidden or kept secret.” BUTI yoga is a practice that beautifully embodies the divine female awakening grounded in a traditional vinyasa practice. BUTI empowers women by activating Kundalini energy through combining traditional hatha movements with tribal dance and plyometrics. BUTI is practiced to high energy and upbeat music allowing women to free their Minds, Bodies, and Hips. This freedom allows women to engage in a meditative and empowering experience that brings heat to the core and unleashes a feminine expression of yoga. BUTI is challenging, uplifting, empowering and will make you get your get your sweat on! BUTI is a perfect fit for any woman looking to release her inner warrior. We sculpt muscles while the body is in an optimal fat burning zone, using power yoga flow as an active recovery and muscle lengthening tool, BUTI teaches you to activate core muscles in both the Outer Unit, the large muscles responsible for moving the body and the Inner Unit, the smaller muscles that stabilize the body. Most workout methodologies over train the Outer Unit while ignoring the Inner Unit muscles - we do not. We have a multi-dimensional approach to restructuring the abdominal wall using the Vertical Quadrant, Horizontal Quadrant, and Spiral Structure.
The Spiral Structure is a term and technique created by BUT Founder Bizzie Gold to pair muscles together based on a spiral that divides the muscles of the Outer and Inner Units. When we approach toning the core using a spiral instead of linearly, we see the interplay between the muscles of the back and the muscles of the abdomen. So often, traditional exercise methodologies ignore the muscles of the back and focus on overdeveloping the muscles of the abdomen. to prevent injury and build lasting core strength that will change overall athletic performance forever - the core should be toned using synergistic muscle pairs - core and back, deep and superficial. The Spiral Structure technique breaks the exercised into synergistic pairs along the spiral to ensure complete restructuring of the core.
