Yogi Brian Reaches 1,000-hour Milestone

Yogi Brian Buturla, owner of Yogi Brian’s Classical Yoga Studio in Norwalk, recently completed a 1,000-hour teacher training program at the Dharma Yoga Center in New York City.

Buturla has been teaching yoga in the Sri Dharma Mittra tradition at the same location since 1997. He has followed in the footsteps of his guru, Sri Dharma Mittra, and studies with him on a weekly basis at his Dharma Yoga Center. Buturla is the first yoga teacher in the nation and only teacher in Connecticut to hold this advanced certification in meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and yoga asana (postures).

“This new certification is best described as a charging practice, designed to charge you up,” says Buturla. “The yoga sequence was created by yoga master Dharma Mittra, based on his more than 50 years of teaching experience. It’s designed for all levels of students and accessible to most individuals at any age.” 

In addition to being a yoga teacher, Buturla is also a certified personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He offers Dharma yoga classes and private training sessions in his private studio.
