POP UP Buti Yoga: Jingle Bell Shake 

Join Lizz, Laura, Linda, & Emily for a fun holiday celebration of movement and joy! It doesn’t snow down here but we will Let it Shake, Let it Shake, Let it Shake! 

Not sure what Buti is? The word comes from the Marathi Indian culture and it means “a cure that has been hidden or kept secret.” The Buti Yoga philosophy is that every person has the power to transform and heal their body from within. Buti Yoga focuses on activating the spiral structure of the core to engage the deep abdominal muscles and stimulate the endocrine system.

Come experience this dynamic asana practice fused with primal movement, tribal dance and deep core engagement. This is a challenging level 2 class with loud music and you will sweat and work hard. Bring a towel and water.

 
Cost: Regular class pricing. $20 drop in/$10 student
