Definition - What does Buti Yoga mean?
Buti yoga is a trademarked style of yoga that combines jump training (plyometrics), tribal dancing and dynamic yoga asanas into an intense workout. In Marathi, the language spoken in parts of western India, buti means "a secret remedy or cure."
Celebrity trainer Bizzie Gold started Buti yogi in 2012, and it has grown to include more than 1,300 instructors in over 15 counties worldwide. The workout is also available via online streaming and on DVD. Available workouts include HotCore, Dynamic Flow and Shakti Sweat.
Yogapedia explains Buti Yoga
The Buti yoga system is marketed specifically to women as a female empowerment workout. Gold calls the workout uplifting and motivating, allowing women to set aside ego and embrace their own beauty and build confidence.
This cardio-intensive yoga workout is designed to transform body and soul through the trademark method of Spiral Structure Technique (SST), which forms the basis for Buti yoga's dynamic flow sequence. SST uses spinal movement to tone of the core, rather than the linear movement found in many yoga practices. The spiral movements are thought to be more appropriate for a woman's body. SST is designed target to both the inner stabilizing and outer muscles.
Among yoga styles that are marketed toward women, like Buti yoga, is Curvy yoga, and other yoga styles that use dance as a part of yoga practice are Dance yoga and Hip Hop yoga.
