Q&A with Sara Fakih: Buti Yoga specialist

Adrenna and Sara Fakih
With our inaugural Valentine's weekend yoga event fast approaching, we wanted to get to know Sara a bit better and find out what she has got in store for us on 10 February.  We first discovered Sara at a yoga retreat in Ibiza in October 2017 and were blown away by her energy and approach to living.
You started as a dancer.  What led you to dance and what led you to change your path?

I started dancing, acting and singing from a very young age. Unfortunately I gradually stopped it because of school commitments and because my parents had a very messy split - I lost all motivation and became extremely depressed. I ended up working as an estate agent, but this was not my calling so I got into fitness. This was my first step into a changed life, not really knowing where it was going to take me. I became an PT after I had put on a tremendous amount of weight and went straight into training private clients. I loved it and soon discovered Zumba, which got me back into my love of dancing - I found I got a buzz out of teaching group fitness! As life goes, I then badly injured my back and had to go back to the 9 to 5, which was soul destroying.  I then discovered dancehall and as I recovered I started dancing more and more and got back into my fitness! I was teaching dance and fitness at studios around London, including Gymbox, where I was introduced to yoga to help with my back. From this, I fell into doing a course that I thought looked amazing - it was Buti Yoga!

Buti changed my world and the concept as created by Bizzie Gold fascinated me. Buti links everything I love into one class and it is more than just because of the physical benefits - it has really helped with my mental outlook.  I’ve always battled with depression and yoga, especially Buti, has helped me reach a positive state of being.

You're a woman of so many talents - from personal training, to dance fitness and, of course, yoga.  How do you balance it all?

I have actually started to drop things to focus more on the things I have a strong passion for, hence why I now teach a lot more yoga!

I used to beast my body into a pulp with not much balance and yoga gave me the tools to stop doing that as much. Buti Yoga led me on my path to take my 200 hour yoga teacher training, which was the most challenging, but life changing course, I’ve ever done and nothing will ever be the same after that. I still love fitness and dance, but through my journey I’m starting to learn that a holistic way to train is the way forward. I have found this balance through Buti Yoga which is why I’m so, so passionate about it! 

I have furthered my yoga hours and wil complete my 500 hours of teacher training this March.

Who is Buti for, and can anyone do it?

Buti is for anyone!! Literally anyone! It’s energetic in both senses! Some people think "OMG it’s way too hard", but it’s one of the most beneficial classes for people in every physical and mental way. We work on strength, on flexibility, on coordination, on every single internal and external oblique, on pelvic floor strength, on power, on connecting with yourself and others, with self-love and with the power to truly let go! It’s not just physical; there is so much more to it as we really connect and help to work on our energetic centres (chakras) throughout the class without you even realising it. It heals the body from the inside to out; Buti literally means the cure to something that is hidden or kept secret.

We are also hosting you for a Yin Yoga session on 10 February.  What drew you to Yin Yoga? Who is it for?

Yin, to me, is pure magic and again I think everyone should be doing Yin. It calms down the nervous system, the mind and also releases into fascia, enabling physical, mental and emotional releases throughout the class. It is such a healing class.

What advice do you have for anyone who dreads Valentine's Day?

Yes it’s a bit of a commercial day, but let’s come away from that; you don’t need to buy into it but you can use it as another reason to spread some love. To use the energy of love to love yourself more to start with and then spread that love wherever you go. There can never be enough love and giving, especially as we are living in a more fragmented world. So let’s use Valentine's Day to love ourselves more and from that the energy love will create a ripple effect to the whole world 🙏🏼

CAB 토토 사이트 홍보를 해 왔던 총판입니다.
작년12월부터 총판 수익금 526만원을 못받아서
이렇게 먹튀 사이트에 글을 올리게 됐습니다,
홍보를 꾸준히 해 오다가 홍보 방법이 막혀서 사전에 CAB운영진의 양해를 구해서
7-8개월동안 홍보방법을 찾기위해 홍보를 못했습니다,
그러다 올해 5월부터 홍보방법을 찾아서 홍보를 하다가
도메인이 유해 사이트로 떠서 새로운 도메인 셋팅을 해 달라고 부탁드렸더니
충분히 기다릴만큼 기다렸다고 도메인 셋팅을 안해주더군요,,
홍보 준비하는 기간동안에 수익금은 500만원이 넘어 있었고,나는 정산금보다
홍보를 계속하고 싶었는데,
갑자기 도메인 셋팅을 안해준다고 하니,,,황당하더군요
그래서 도메인 셋팅 안 해 줄거면 정산금을 정산해 달라고 햇더니
“6개월반이나 기다려 아무성과가 없어서 정산금을 못주겟다네요,,
그래도 5월에는 많지는 않지만 10여명정도 가입이 있었고,이제 어느정도 효과를 볼려고
하는데
정산금 주기 싫어서 같이 일을 못하겟다고 하니,,,이게 먹튀가 아니고 뭔가요?
내가 이렇게 글을 올리는것도 사전에 CAB운영진에 미리 얘기를 드렸고,마음대로 하라고 하면서
관리자 비번과 텔레그램까지 차단했고,CAB 사이트에 자세히 알아보니,일반 유저 먹튀도 여러건 발견되어
이대로 나두면 안되겠다는 생각이 들어 이렇게 글을 올립니다.
일단 저와 제가 아는 동생이 CAB에서 놀았던 입금 계좌를 경찰에 아는분한테 제출을 할겁니다.
지금 CAB을 이용하고 계신분이나 이용하실분들은 나중에 통장 계좌가 노출되어 경찰 조사를 받는일이
없도록 CAB토토사이트 이용을 자제해 주시기 바랍니다,
그리고 CAB토토 사이트도 상황이 복잡해지면 일반유저 먹튀도 예상되니까,
가능하면 다른 사이트 이용을 부탁드립니다!!
