Class Descriptions:

Buti Yoga is a tribe of empowered people who support each other in their quest for health and happiness. The movement methodology is drawn from primal movement, tribal dance and ancient yoga techniques to awaken the Shakti energy and free the mind.

Our Kardio Cycle is a 50 min ride made to challenge your body using the Power Meter and has something for everyone. The class is set to a rocking rhythmic mix with strength, endurance, challenges, hills, and drills. The goal is to lose yourself in the experience of the ride, with safety in mind. But it’s so much more than just a workout — it’s a powerful mind-body experience.


Details about the pre-Chat workout option: No need to change out of your workout clothes for the chat- this one will be casual! But if you do prefer a quick rinse between your workout and the Chat feel free to use Kondition's Locker Rooms, fully stocked with toiletries and towels. Stay for light refreshments and Chat at 6:30 p.m. To sign up for the class

*It is suggested that you please remove your shoes upon entering the gym maximizing comfort and a clean space.



About Wendy Lea

As a Boulder, CO leader and Changemaker she currently serves as the only female Board member on the Techstars Board.

As a founding team member of OnTarget, a global consultancy delivering “go to market” solutions to tech giants like Oracle, HP, IBM, Cisco and Microsoft, Wendy developed a deep curiosity for the role technology plays in driving growth.

After Siebel's acquisition of OnTarget in 2000, Wendy focused her resources––talent, time and capital––in early-stage startup innovation, serving as an angel investor and interim CEO to many high growth startups in a range of technology areas, preparing them for new rounds of institutional capital based on their market positioning, capability, and growth metrics.

Since 2014, Wendy has been the CEO of Cintrifuse; a public-private partnership focused on economic vibrancy through startup innovation. She applied her experience and expertise with digital business building, cultivating relationships with venture capitalists, leaning into her network of high-growth talent, and using her unique approach to collaboration. Wendy’s leadership set the conditions necessary for a sustainable innovation economy for the Greater Cincinnati Region, resulting in its recognition as the #1 startup ecosystem in Ohio.

Wendy has applied her passion and mastery to the InterAlliance Board, The Health Collaborative Board, and The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. She's an active member of Women's Capital Club and Cincinnati's Women Executive Forum. Most recently, she was nominated to Miami University’s Institute of Entrepreneurship Advisory Board and joined the State of Kentucky’s new Commercialization Advisory Board.

Wendy’s network extends across the country. She is recognized as a "Woman of Influence" in both Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Wendy serves on the board of venture-backed Techstars and Xyleme and is an active part of Steve Case's Rise of the Rest Expert Network. A graduate of the University of Mississippi in Business Administration, Wendy now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
