As part of the Cbus Fitness Influencers group, we get invited to a lot of cool events, spaces & places. Last Friday was no exception as we checked out a unique type of yoga at Bexley Yoga in Upper Arlington called Buti Yoga. The event organizer was Lindsay of Find Where You Fit and I was happy to finally meet her in person. She is a Columbus fitness & wellness blogger @FindWhereYouFit and “Your PT and guide to fitness in the 614 and beyond.” We likely would have met up sooner… except for that she hates to run which is kinda my thing. 🙂
This was my first visit to Bexley Yoga and it was such a cute studio! A quaint, inviting space with pixie lights, a ballet bar, props for yoga class and a small retail section with some local goodies including Bend Active.
If you’ve never tried Buti Yoga, it’s part yoga, part tribal dance, a bit wild and a LOT of fun. An article on “What is Buti Yoga?” explains that “Buti is a practice of going within to discover your true power and full potential… It’s for the Boss Babes.” Amy Lee, the owner of Bexley Yoga, told Lindsay as they were organizing the event, “They’ll love it, but it definitely needs to be on a Friday night. It’s kind of like a party.” So Friday night it was! We first met Amy (owner) and later I read her story on her website about how Bexley Yoga came to be. Inspiring!
The class then started and it was definitely an adventurous, “wild” class! It was a good mix of plyometrics, vinyasa yoga with some flow & a sprinkle of tribal dance. Class was lead by Stacy and I LOVED it. We got in a great sweaty workout, while feeling feminine, sexy and empowered. I didn’t get any mid-class pics because I was too busy workin’ it, but snapped a few at the end…
Being a blogger’s event, we finished class with some snacks (thanks Lindsay) and some Sierra Nevada (thanks SN!) First we sweat, then we socialize… the perfect ending to a fun Friday night with some of Cbus’ finest fitness gals!
I would HIGHLY recommend both Bexley Yoga and Buti Yoga. Its not yet on their class schedule, but may be offered soon and can be inquired for private events. As quoted by Yoga Fever… Buti Yoga will rock your world!
