Buti Glow Party
BUTI Yoga®, meaning “the cure to something hidden or kept secret”, is a fusion of yoga, tribal dance and Plyometrics, with some spiraling movements aimed at unlocking and releasing the Shakti spiral as well as the hips to help energy flow freely in the 1st and 2nd Chakras. BUTI® combines various styles of Hatha yoga with tribal-influenced dance sequences to keep the heart rate up, free the female spirit and help women form a tribe or sisterhood.
Add some glow-in-the-dark body paint and black lights with some awesome tribal music and you have a BUTI GLOW PARTY!!!
Kim Fuhrmeister will be leading us through this workshop with the first hour consisting of an introduction of what Buti Yoga is and teaching you the signature BUTI moves with proper form and technique. After the intro., we will break into helping each other applying glow-in-the-dark paints. Then the last 60 minutes will be a high energy, heart pumping, full of excitement sweat fest with lots of support from your fellow sisters.
