Buti Flow Yoga


This class is taught by:

Leah Ward

Leah grew up playing soccer, tennis, running and riding horses. After years of physically demanding sports and playing soccer in college at WVU, she had sadly accepted a fate of potentially never having any flexibility. Once Leah moved to Raleigh from Washington DC in late 2013, she discovered Barre Up and it didn't take her long to fall in love with everything the studio stood for. In early 2014, she decided to challenge herself and become certified to teach Buti Yoga, helping Barre Up become one of the first prominent studios to offer these empowering, strong classes for women around the triangle area.

Leah has since been able to become immersed in her passion for motivating and helping all levels achieve their own individual goals and is continuously inspired by the magic that Barre Up brings to the community. Her quirky, upbeat personality and always interesting 'Rhythm and Poetry' music choices are a favorite amongst our wonderful clients. If she's not in the studio, you can typically find her stop, drop, and yoga'ing around Raleigh with her corgi and camera in tow. In 2017 Leah was graciously voted among the "Best Fitness Instructors in Raleigh". She is currently 200 hr RYT Buti, Buti Flow, Vinyasa, Hot Core/Sculpt and Barre certified.

Winter Holbrook

Winter has been a part of the studio ever since it opened in 2013. She started as a client and fell head over heels in love with the classes, the instructors and the small, supportive environment of women. After years of going to the gym and other studios, she finally felt like this was her "home". The studio helped transform her mind, body and soul and she took the plunge to get her Buti Yoga certification and then subsequently followed with her 200hr RYT, Buti Flow, Vinyasa, HotCore/Sculpt and Barre Certifications.

Her passion is helping people be the best version of themselves and motivating others to push past the limits that may hold them back. She loves helping people make the mind-body connection and watching them transformation physically, but most importantly, mentally. Winter was also voted as one of two "Most Moving Instructors of 2016" for the Raleigh area and in 2017 was among the "Best Fitness Instructors in Raleigh".
 
When not in the studio, Winter works for a construction management firm and also moonlights as the Vice President of a local not-for-profit - Models for Charity. Her free time is spent enjoying life with her husband - Sam, her 2 stepchildren - and her favorite furry babies - Drake and Annabelle. 

Elisabeth Gibbons

A recent yoga-holic, Elisabeth considers Barre-Up as a second home and inspiration for her to become an instructor. She most enjoys the energy, friendly and accepting environment, and mental indulgence from the workout and classes. She has also greatly broadened her music knowledge as an instructor. Elisabeth is RYT 200 and Buti Yoga certified. She teaches Buti, Vinyasa, and Yin Yoga.
 
Aside from yoga, Elisabeth keeps busy working and traveling for her market research company which she started with a business partner, 14 years ago. When she is not working or practicing yoga, she can be found enjoying time her with family, bicycling with her husband, or taking every opportunity to visit her two daughters.
This Buti Flow class incorporates all the energy, hip and shoulder opening of Kundalini based Buti yoga, with less explosive plyometric and dance choreography. This is a great way to introduce Buti into your routine.
