About Buti Yoga
Buti Yoga is a calorie-scorching workout that fuses power 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. Instead of linear movements, Buti Yoga integrates movements that challenge the body along all planes of motion - THE RESULT - long , lean muscle with increased flexibility. This class is open to all fitness levels, but a basic knowledge or background of fitness and/or yoga is suggested as this can be an intense workout. Any fitness levels are still ALWAYS welcome. If something doesn't feel right for you, you're free to have your own dance party in the back!
The Buti community is unwavering in its commitment to the creation of an empowered community who support each other in their pursuit of health, wellness and happiness. Come as you are and wear what is comfortable for you in order to enable you to move freely and openly through asanas and through moments of high intensity cardio. This is a judgement free zone and we are all about body love and loving yourself exactly where you are right now, so you will often find butisattvas in nothing more than a sports bra and yoga shorts. We move big and sweat hard! So grab your water, (a towel wouldn't hurt) and come meet me on the mat!
Participants are encouraged to research the cultural origins of all classes. Mutual respect will alow us to come together as one as we seek the physical and mindful benefits from this practice. Namaste.
Buti Yoga Basics
This class is for anyone who is interested in trying Buti Yoga but would like to learn more of a breakdown of the basic movements and postures or for anyone who is already taking the classes but wants to maybe slow it down just a little. Still a great workout, just slightly slower paced, with more of a demonstration period beforehand. Great for all levels!

About the Instructor
"I love this practice, because it is more than just a workout, it is the movement of WE. It brings together, rather than divides. It nourishes my mind, body and soul."
Natasha Kentala is a native of the area and a Massage Therapist of 12 years, having studied at the Arizona School of Massage Therapy. She holds additional certifications in Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release and is also a Reiki Master. Natasha became certified in Buti Yoga in May of 2017 and has been passionate about the practice for well over a year. She refers to it as her soulmate workout as it has helped her transform from the inside out. In the paraphrased words of the founder of Buti Yoga, Bizzie Gold, "To me, Buti Yoga isn't a workout, it's my chance to create, let go, connect, and sweat with intention. Every time you step on your mat, you have a chance to break through the emotional or physical barriers that hold you back in life, and thus, set you free." Natasha is very excited to share this fun, unique, transformational practice with all of you! Natasha is passionate about all things in the realm of health, wellness and creative outlets. In her free time, when she's not buti-ing of course, she stays active chasing her two children, enjoying the outdoors, learning new things, hiking, gardening, cooking delicious paleo meals, and dreaming of warm places to travel to, to help balance out the chill of the Upper Peninsula. She can't wait to meet you on the mat!
