Buti - Buti Yoga workouts transform your BODY + SOUL with cardio-intensive bursts of tribal dance, primal movement + conditioning woven into a dynamic yoga practice. This calorie-scorching workout fuses power yoga with cardio-intensive tribal dance + body sculpting primal movement. Buti Yoga utilizes the Spiral Structure Technique to sculpt + tone the deep abdominal muscles that stabilize and strengthen the body. Instead of linear movements, it uses movements that challenge the body along all planes of motion - THE RESULT - long, lean muscle with sexy feminine curves.

This class is wonderful for relaxing and letting go. It is ideal for those wanting to stretch and/or beginning to work on meditation or savanna.
Yin – 5-6 supported poses with an emphasis on long-held, passive stresses of the deeper connective tissues. Mobilizing and strengthening our joints, ligaments, and deep fascial networks, Yin Yoga is a practice much needed in today’s difficult, divisive times. Yin offers a way to leave behind our ideas of how we should be and return to our true selves, where all lasting healing takes place. Biff Mithoefer – author
Yin & Yang - In this class you will experience Yin holds with Yang movements between each pose to calibrate the body. This class is held at room temperature, with soothing, relaxing music, and all levels are welcomed.
Barefoot Kids – This class is for children and those who are children at heart. Kids can practice alone or with a parental figure. This is a fun class that plants a seed and creates a foundation of learning for eventual transition into the world of yoga. We discover poses as animals using western language, through stories and games. Children burn off energy and engage in a peaceful journey. We begin the practice of stillness, listening, focus and meditation.
Workshops and special events – we have a multitude of workshops and special events that are ever changing to meet requests and our evolving needs. Yoga Rouge welcomes all suggestions and requests.
Yoga for A Cause – This class is donation-based class with all proceeds going to a non-profit charity. We generally have this class once a month.
Funky Friday or Happy Hour – A Friday afternoon class that’s fun and lighthearted, sometimes with music or special guests musicians, to get you ready for the weekend. Followed by a meet and greet, gathering, or “Happy Hour.” This is a great way to mix and mingle with our yoga community. As my dear friend Wendy likes to say, “we don’t check what’s in your water bottle.” Yogis and Yoginis of legal age may bring beverages of their choice.
