Buti Yoga
Part primal movement, part yoga, this class is for you if you need to de-stress, but regular Hatha or Iyengar puts you to sleep. It's fast-paced, calorie-burning and you get to aggressively slap the floor a lot (and who doesn't love that?). It will be sure to have you saying, "nah-ma-stay." Image via @butiyoga
