Buti Yoga with Gabby Orcutt, RYT 200

Workshop Description:

We come into this practice to shed inhibitions – not pounds.

Our intentions are not to step into a smaller size – but to step into our power.

We come seeking our truth – not a number.

Buti Yoga isn’t just a workout – it’s a chance to create – let go – connect – and sweat with intention. A soulful blend of power yoga, cardio-intensive tribal dance, conditioning and deep abdominal toning this all-in-one workout tones and sculpts the entire body while facilitating complete inner transformation. The Spiral Structure Technique methodology of movement tones the core using a spiral instead of linear movement to address both the large outer muscles that move the body as well as the inner stabilizing muscles. Buti Yoga helps women tap into their inner power to unleash unshakable confidence, uncover true desire and bond with other women instead of compete.

Buti is an Indian Marathi word that means “a cure that has been hidden or kept secret.” It was initially used in reference to Ayurvedic herbs considered jadi buti. In today’s society, women are taught that the next cleanse or diet fad will give them happiness. At Buti, we believe the TRUE cure to emotional and physical ailments comes from WITHIN. The practice of Buti Yoga helps women strip away the layers that hide this cure and bring about total transformation.

We call our students and instructors “Butisattvas.” Sattva means enlightened one. Therefore a Butisattva is one that has successfully realized the power to heal is within. While the practice of Buti Yoga is mainly geared towards women, men are encouraged to unroll the mat, tapping into their shakti.

In Buti, the beat drives the movement. This 30 minute class is sure to make you sweat, put a smile on your face and free your mind. The music in a Buti Yoga class is LOUD and this class will be driven by the beat of live drummers. Join Gabby in setting your intention, clear away stuck energy, revitalize the body and spiral it away on your yoga mat.

Location: Millbrook Marsh, State College, PA
Date: Oct. 22nd
Time: 4:30 – 5:10pm

Gabby Orcutt, RYT-200

Gabby Orcutt found yoga her sophomore year of college thanks to an early morning yoga flow on TV. She saw the benefits of yoga first hand: a lightness in the body, better digestion and a reduction in anxiety. Eight years later yoga reentered her life after gaining 60 lbs. while pregnant with her second child. She needed to find a workout she loved, it must tone the body and not involve running. A college friend kept raving about Buti Yoga and her progress pictures were impressive. Gabby tried Buti at 8 weeks postpartum and was met with the disappointing reality of how out of shape her body was after giving her all in creating two beautiful baby souls. After practicing Buti

Yoga consistently for two years, she went to the closest certification and has been sharing the practice within a three county radius of her home. Falling even deeper in love with yoga and reveling in its benefits, she finished her 200 hour RYT through Buti Yoga in July.

It is Gabby’s life mission to lead women on the path to self love and acceptance. To learn to love the body parts she once hated, to drop the lies from body dysmorphia and step into her power to rise up and live in her truth, unapologetically, everyday. This is achieved through Buti Yoga movement, Goddess Coaching mindset, and Boudoir portraits.

A landlocked mermaid, Gabby lives in DuBois, PA with her two children, husband and Miss Ursula Kitty the aquatic goddess of floof. She currently teaches at SoL Wellness & Gathering Space in DuBois, PA and Organic Mechanics in St. Marys, PA.

HoOp Dance Workshop with Bethany Seib

Workshop Description:

Hooping is a complete workout for the mind and body. Stimulating self-confidence and sensual awareness while toning the body. Hoop Dance promotes play and childlike, spirited celebration. It is a fun and energetic cardiovascular workout. Improves flexibility and endurance. Strengthens and tones abdominal muscles. Stress Relieving. Enhances coordination and balance. Everyone learns at their own pace and students can use the time to explore the possibilities of the hoop and clear their minds. You’ll be reminded of your childhood- where physical play was FUN- not a “workout”. Even if you never hooped, I have found that virtually ALL of my students are able to hoop given the proper tools and training. Simply put: you will sweat; laugh; and challenge your limits with every “swish” of the hoop. My Hula Hoops are easy to use; beautifully designed; and built to take a beating.

 

Location: Millbrook Marsh, State College, PA
Date: Oct. 22nd
Time: TBD

Erica Kaufman, E-RYT-500

“Influenced by Krishnamacharya’s teachings and Krishna Murti’s philosophies, I was brought into this beautiful lineage of yoga. When I think of yoga, I think of life. Through my life with yoga, I began to refine my awareness, my choices. I experienced moments of yoga–true integration beyond the limited body/mind. These moments were so potent that I felt compelled to practice more–to learn more. By age 14, I was practicing 3-5 times a week with my meditation teacher Dr Clayton McCracken.”

Yogacharya Erica Kaufman is the founder of Lila Yoga® and the owner of Lila Yoga Studios. She began daily devoted yoga practices at age 9. Influenced by Jiddu Krishnamurti’s philosophy and Krishnamacharya’s teachings, she spends three months a year in India.

Chris Brown, local musician

We are excited to have Chris Brown at Yoga Fest State College 2017!

For as long as I can remember, playing music and singing has been about opening up and sharing my humanity with others. It’s been about learning to be vulnerable, creating connection, and meeting myself and other people in a place of presence, and authenticity. Through this experience has come my own hearts’ awakening, and healing.

I’m drawn to and moved by artists who lay their hearts out on the line. You can hear it in the way they sing, or play their instrument. It’s as if every part of their human experience is being channeled and filtered through their instrument, or through their voice. Their heartache, triumphs, loneliness, love, connection, joy, etc, nothing is left out! I strive to play and sing like that! Artists like Ray Charles, Ray Lamontagne, and Chris Stapleton continually teach me how to come home to my inner experience and let it shine.” – Chris Brown
