BUTI is not only physically and cardiovascularly challenging, it is mind opening. BUTI utilizes various dance movements from a variety of tribal-based dance styles including Brazilian Baile Funk, Miami Booty Dance, Hip-Hop, Crunk, African Tribal, and Arabic Tribal and seamlessly connects these dance styles into power yoga sequences for the ultimate fitness experience. In addition to the physical benefits, BUTI helps its students break through barriers of self-esteem. BUTI is freeing, often helping students undergo a complete self-transformation. Emotional breakthrough, coupled with an obvious change in body tone and decrease in body fat, leads to an overall life change. Visit for more information.
