Many may think of yoga as a restful form of exercise, something that you can do when you need peace and quiet. However, Buti Yoga completely disrupts everything that you thought you knew about the practice. Founded by celebrity trainer Bizzie Gold in 2012, Buti Yoga is a combination of traditional yoga moves, tribal dance and plyometrics that has proven popular with stars such as Jennifer Love Hewitt.
The workout claims to greatly benefit both your physical and mental wellbeing. Buti Yoga brings a variety of different movements together, including vinyasa-style yoga, tribal-inspired dancing and plyometric exercises (otherwise known as ‘jump training’). The high-intensity classes are paired with pumping music and are open to people of all fitness abilities. The workout employs the spiral structure technique (SST), a signature strengthening technique that activates all areas of your abdominal muscles by using spiral movements, as opposed to linear ones. According to the Los Angeles Times, one 75-minute class could burn approximately 800 to 1,000 calories. Buti is a Marathi Indian term that can be translated as meaning “the cure to something that’s been hidden away or secret.”
