Class Schedule

Introducing Buti Yoga!

Hatha Yoga – Our most popular class!
The goal of Hatha Yoga is to create an absolute balance between the physical body, mind and energy. This class will use asanas (physical postures), breathing techniques and meditation. Participants will become stronger, more flexible and will feel relaxed at the end of each class.

We offer the following types of Hatha Yoga classes:
All Levels – Suitable for a small group of people with varying abilities and levels of experience. We will give plenty of variations, allowing more advanced students to go further, while providing an opportunity for beginner students to rest or explore easier options in a pose.

Beginner – Suitable for absolute beginners with little or no experience with yoga. You will be introduced to basic yoga postures and the instructor will offer plenty of modifications and verbal cues to ensure that you are safe and practicing postures correctly.

Intermediate – Suitable for an individual or small group that have at least some experience doing yoga. Students should be familiar with some English names of postures.

Advanced – Only suitable for those that have experience with yoga. Postures will be more challenging and may include balancing poses and inverted poses. Be prepared to work hard!

Meditation/Stress Relief
This class will relax the body and calm the mind. Meditation has been shown to increase quality of life, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce stress and much more. Suitable for all levels. Classes are 30 minutes long.

Power Yoga
A highly energized and fast-paced flow of yoga, Power Yoga is challenging and invigorating, and will strengthen every muscle in your body as you work up a sweat, vigorously heat the body, and move quickly through each posture. All participants should be somewhat physically fit before beginning this class.

Yin Yoga
This style of yoga is more passive than most and uses gravity to allow you to descend more deeply into your practice. Yin Yoga targets connective tissue, such as ligaments and tendons, more so than in a more active style of yoga. Poses are held anywhere from 1-5 minutes. While this may initially be seen as easy, participants usually report that it is much more difficult than they anticipated.
Please note: Yin Yoga requires the use of props. Each student will need a blanket, two blocks and if possible, a bolster or oversized pillow.

Restorative Yoga
Restorative Yoga is perfect for those recovering from injury. This restful practice implements body awareness, breath work and deeply relaxing poses. Almost all of the poses will be seated or lying down, with the use of props. This style of yoga helps to oxygenate the body, decrease blood pressure and gently bring the body into a relaxed state.

ATHLETES

Many athletes might think they don’t have time to add yoga to their already intense training schedules. They may not see how ‘stretching and breathing’ would be beneficial to their regimen. Others may temporarily add yoga to their routines only after sustaining an injury. So why should athletes practice yoga regularly?

First and foremost, yoga is a critical tool in preventing injuries.

Repetitive movements in one direction or plane of motion develop certain muscle groups while neglecting others. Over time, this process creates imbalances in the body, leading to injuries. Even if athletes stretch before or after a workout, they are stretching muscles in the same direction and plane of motion as their exercise. Yoga works the body across multiple planes, including sagittal, frontal and transverse planes. This ensures well-rounded development and decreases the risk of overuse injury. Common overuse injuries in athletes include illiotibial band (ITB) injuries, as well as injuries in the knees, hamstrings, hip flexors and shoulders. These can be linked to poor flexibility or range of motion, as well as misalignment.

A well-rounded yoga practice includes dynamic flexibility training, core stabilization, strength conditioning and balance work. As a result, the body recovers faster after workouts, and tight areas in the body that hinder performance are opened and released over time. Yoga also improves range of motion, and develops mental sharpness and better concentration. That’s where REAL LIFE. REAL YOGA.™ comes in.
