Buti Flow Yoga


This class is taught by:

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.

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, 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 that mind-body connection and watching the transformation physically, but most importantly, mentally. Winter was also voted as one of two "Most Moving Instructors of 2016" for the Raleigh area!
 
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. 

Julie Smith

Julie has loved barre work since she was a teen. She checked out the Callanetics video so many times, that her mother finally allowed her to fail to return it!
Fast forward to an adult that needed to shape up while being mindful of old equestrian injuries, Julie discovered Pilates and fell in love. She became certified to teach in 2006, followed by full Pilates equipment and Gyrotonic certifications. She always integrated some of her old barre routines into her classes, and wanted to more fully mesh her Pilates and Barre experience. BarreAmped certification perfectly combined the precision of Pilates with the intensity of barre. The attention to detail and form allows Julie to truly educate the bodies in front of her rather than just powering through a class routine. She loves watching people re-shape their bodies and lift their spirits with mindful physical activity.
In 2013, Julie stumbled upon Buti yoga. With her kundalini-based Gyrotonic and core-focused Pilates background, she recognized the potential this movement had to break open barriers to generate strong and supple bodies. Certified in Buti yoga since 2013, Julie completed her 200RYT certification in 2015. She has also completed additional Vinyasa Flow trainings with Stephanie Keach and Tamal Dodge.
Julie lives in Raleigh with her husband, Walter, their college age son and two daughters. She continues to ride hunter jumpers, and works to create time for her high speed driving hobby with her husband at VIR.
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.
