Buti Yoga is a workout that fuses vinyasa yoga with cardio-intensive bursts + dance + strength + conditioning + deep abdominal toning. It utilizes the Spiral Structure Technique to sculpt and tone the deep abdominal muscles that stabilize and strengthen the body. Buti is a Marathi (language spoken in parts of Western India) word that translates to "the cure to something that has been hidden away or kept secret." By tapping into primal movements we let go of patterns or inhibitions that may be holding us back.
