fusion of yoga, tribal dance, and plyometrics. Classes combine cardio, strength training and flexibility in one

seamless format. Buti creates a strong, empowered group that resembles a tribe. Students (aka Butisattvas) stay

committed to the practice and are very supportive of one another. Join the tribe and thrive! Taught by a certified

Buti Yoga instructor. Ok for the beginner with a reasonable fitness level.

 

Kundalini

Kundalini Yoga is known as the yoga of awareness. It uses movement, sound current, breath and meditation to relax

and heal your mind and body, allowing the spirit to flow freely. Kundalini Yoga brings a greater feeling of well-being and

happiness – our natural birthright as human beings. This powerful and effective form of Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D.,

Master of Kundalini Yoga, is a great way to recharge and heal your body quickly. How? By stimulating the nervous and

immune systems, improving strength and flexibility, and focusing the mind. Come with an open mind and an open heart and

you will reap the rich benefits of this ancient yogic art and science. Appropriate for all levels.

all aimed to increase joint circulation and improve flexibility.  A slower paced class where poses are held for extended

durations.  This class is suitable for beginners, as well as any level of student.
