Buti Yoga

45 minutes

Buti or Booty?! The word 'buti' is an Indian Marathi term for 'a cure hidden beneath the surface'. Buti Yoga is a soulful blend of vinyasa yoga, cardio-intensive tribal dance & deep abdominal toning set to kick-ass dance jams. This movement practice is designed to help develop body confidence, break through emotional physical barriers & transform your body from the inside-out. Buti is unique in that the classes are never planned & we do all the movement alongside you - we move together to the beat of the music, get out of our heads, tune into our bodies & awaken the chakras letting the energies take over. Open Level -Buti Yoga's creation is a story of organic transformation & dedication to meeting students WHERE THEY ARE.

Restorative Yin

60 - 75 minutes

Yin Yoga is a meditative and profoundly relaxing practice, nourishing the deeper tissues of our body, regaining ease and mobility in our joints, relieving tension and pain while calming the nervous system. The simple, passive, seated and lying poses are held for 3-5 minutes to stimulate the fascia tissue, while deeply restoring other areas of the body with the support of bolsters and blankets. We stimulate and enhance the flow of energy through the body to create a profound sense of calmness, focus and equanimity.

Mat Pilates

45 minutes

Joseph Pilates developed this exercise methodology in the early 1900s, inspired from dance, yoga & classic calisthenics. This whole-body, low impact class will lengthen & tone your body, with particular focus on strengthening the core or 'powerhouse' - the muscles that span from your hips to your shoulders. There is also a focus on spinal mobility & postural awareness, so you'll leave feeling strong, refreshed & maybe even a little taller! Natasha enjoys incorporating techniques she trained in as a dancer to challenge coordination and to engage both the body AND mind and loves to maintain a focus on creating a fun, inspiring and open environment throughout her classes to encourage the best results for her clients.

This short & sweet 30 minute restorative class releases tight & tired muscles & calms the mind.  A combination of dynamic & active feel good movements, massage balls, & foam rollers for self-myofascial release will not only feel amazing, but will also help increase blood flow & aid in muscle recovery!
