empowered women empower women | found it in buti bliss

We live in a time where sisterhood is at its strongest vibration. Where we can connect with women that allow us the space to grow and vibrate together. Women radiate when they feel positive and peaceful with who they are and they want those around them to feel the same.
Empowered women empower women. 
If we treated each other as equal and supported one another, we can all rise together. We waste too much energy feeling threatened by each other, when we can focus on uplifting one another. I worked in a primarily women corporate company. Each day I watched as insecure women rose to the top and used their authority to push those wanting to grow further into monotonous tasks and spaces not to speak. They would belittle and bully individuals below them. I knew it came from a place of unhappiness and lack of confidence. From a fear of losing their position and ability to control, they made sure to not teach for fear we could grow beyond.
As hard as they tried, they couldn’t break me. I knew the strength I had. I had someone who sat by me and reminded me each day when she saw me down with passion and aggression “you are better than this, you will rise”.

Within those same walls I found women that radiated and our connections were instantaneous. The experience provided me the closest and most supportive women, whose spirits motivated me and saw my potential when I didn’t feel fully there yet.

Every week I would go to a Buti yoga class to be reminded of how women could empower each other. The studio always had their doors open wide to comfort me when I felt myself losing my shine. Each week we all stood in front of a mirror.

Women of every body type, age, and career path coming together to focus on giving their bodies self love. We allowed our bodies to move without rules or limits of how it should look. Releasing judgement towards ourselves and those around us. A power of women coming together. Raw, sweaty, & not perfect. Just being in their bodies to release grips we hold as women in our hearts. 
Buti is Maharathi for a cure that has been hidden or kept secret. I felt each week I was awakening the truest form of me as I flowed in that class.

After I quit and traveled the world for a few months, I missed the bliss I felt after the intense movement of the class. I missed the women and the energy I experienced. Yoga gave me peace of mind. Buti gave me an empowered, sexy feeling of union with women as a whole.

When I returned from my travels I became certified during an intense two day packed training. It pushed me to become more vulnerable and strengthen my power. Learning more about the practice revealed its influence it had on me and the room of women wanting to become teachers as well.

This practice made me believe in women when I felt the most betrayed by them in my daily life. I love teaching it because of the awakening it could possibly provide others. But most of all, its so fun and empowering!

My best friend said after I taught my first class “doing Buti with friends is like having sex with friends in a platonic way. I am rooting for you! I look sexy! You look sexy! We doing this!

Let us stand in our power. 
Let us love each other. 
In turn it allows us to love ourselves with passion & stimulating adoration.
