Vera Ventura is originally from Miami, where she immersed herself in the pulsating beats of Latin music and culture. She moved to NYC at 14 to pursue acting, but also became a staple in the club scene--dancing until late in the night. While at Skidmore College, she traveled to India and fell in love with yoga when she witnessed a 90-year old man standing on his head!
Since then it’s been a journey of self-discovery, disciple, and acceptance--through recovery, yoga, buti yoga, meditation and the healing arts of aromatherapy & touch. She completed her masters from Harvard University in education in 2012, and focused on mindfulness.
Vera has also completed her 200-HR Vinyasa training at Prana Yoga, 200 HR- Buti Yoga Teacher training at Ritual Sweat Society, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training at UMASS Medical Center, Kids Yoga training, and is a certified doTERRA aromatouch specialist.
Off the mat, she enjoys watching documentaries, traveling, and spending time with her husband and 2 sparkly kids.
Vera Ventura instructs the following:
Buti® Yoga is a soulful blend of power yoga, cardio-intensive tribal dance and deep abdominal toning. This all-in-one movement method tones and sculpts the body while facilitating complete inner transformation. Buti® uses ancient cleansing techniques called “Kriyas” to stimulate and cleanse the deep abdominal organs and Chakra system – facilitating detoxification on physical, energetic and emotional levels.
Buti Yoga’s creation is a story of organic transformation and dedication to meeting students WHERE THEY ARE. Prepare to to HAVE FUN and move!
