Sep 19, 9:00am - Sep 19, 10:30am

Big Grove Brewery1225 S Gilbert StIowa City, IA52240 Map

Zen Soul Society and Big Grove Brewery Iowa City support DVIP with a fun, body shaking yoga event! The event is $20, with all proceeds supporting victims/survivors. You will receive 1 beer afterwards with your admission. Please bring your own yoga mat and water bottle.

What is BUTI Yoga?
This calorie-scorching workout fuses power yoga with cardio-intensive tribal dance + body sculpting movement.

Buti® Yoga utilizes the Spiral Structure to strengthen the body.

Buti® Instead of linear movements, Buti® Yoga challenges the body along all planes of motion, incorporating elements of shaking + vibration to help release stored trauma.

Music guides Buti® classes with beat blended movement forcing you out of your head and INTO YOUR BODY.
It is in THIS magical place that you integrate your human experience instead of escape it.

Buti® Yoga isn't a work out; it's a chance to create, let go, connect and SWEAT WITH INTENTION
