WHAT DO YOGA, tribal dance and plyometric moves have in common?
A whole lot more than you’d think. They’re the three key ingredients for Buti Yoga, a booty-shaking workout that’s reinventing your regular relaxing practice as a high-intensity, high-fun fitness fix.
The first thing you’ll notice about this combo of downward dogs, dance and explosive jumping moves is that it’s tough. The constant movement and challenging positions ensure you’ll work up a sweat – and you don’t need anything but your own hot bod to pull it off. Best of all, thanks to all that cardio, stretching and butt-shaking, you’ll score major muscle tone, flexibility and dancefloor confidence. Namaste to that!
Bust out each move for the allotted time, taking around 10-20 seconds’ rest between each of the moves.
