Dedicated yoga practitioners and curious students alike will find this global overview informative as well as helpful in understanding the impact yoga has on our endocrine and nervous systems and creating asana sequences for optimal effect.

Buti Yoga DEEP Certification

December 3-4

Masterful and intentional, DEEP is restorative movement sequence that utilizes the Spiral Structure Technique® to connect mind to muscle and catalyze vibrational change on a cellular level. Unlike other Buti® trademarked formats, DEEP is low-impact and focuses on micro-movements with physical touch to connect the brain to innervated muscle and restructure the deep core. DEEP is designed to prevent injury, restore innervation and assist in the recovery of bladder/ uterine prolapse and diastasis recti. The class structure also includes self-massage and pressure point activation to release muscles during deep restorative asanas. Class duration ranges 75-90 minutes + 7 minute meditation.

DEEP is a POWERFUL practice to add to your instructor tools and repertoire.

This format compliments all existing Buti® formats and is a gentle introduction to the spiral structure technique.
