BUTI Yoga

Anela Garcia is excited and proud to bring Buti Yoga to Amador county. Buti yoga is a modern and fast growing yoga practice. Buti yoga is a dynamic blend of primal Movement, cardio intensive Tribal Dance, and Vinyasa Yoga, utilizing the spiral structure technique for deep core engagement. The entire workout is driven by the music with the beats setting the tone for HIIT-style moments, fluid flows, and deep stretching. BUTI  means “the cure to something that is hidden” in Indian Maharathi. Our goal in BUTI is to unlock the Shakti energy trapped in the lower two chakras. “Buti allows me to blend my creative side with my determination. I bring an eclectic mix of music, and an ever evolving creative flow to each class. Buti never fails to connect me with myself and community through teaching. A cathartic process that wrings out stress and opens our hearts for that glowing feeling of Buti Bliss,” Garcia said. Garcia is offering classes at The Studio, 91 Church Street in Sutter Creek, on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m. Classes are open to everyone ages 13 and up. Cost is $60 per month for unlimited classes or $10 drop-in rate. First class is always free. For more information, call 304-7361.
