The Buttafly Affiliate Programme

The Buttafly affiliate programme is called Kaleidoscope. This is the name given to a group of butterflies and it’s also the word used to describe a constantly changing pattern, the structure of which I see as a mandala. As such, it represents my desire to achieve wholeness through collaboration, and a shared commitment to promoting yoga for all.

Through Kaleidoscope, my vision is to build a community that is inclusive of everyone, and where we learn and work together to promote safe, fulfilling physical practices that fall under the umbrella of YOGA.

What Our Teachers Say

Neil Baird, Yoga Teacher

The training with TillyLou was time well spent in many ways. Although at first, I couldn’t imagine how we would spend two days on the topic, as soon as we began I realised that this was to be much more than I had expected. We were not simply going to be learning about the benefits and uses of the Buttafly products, but we would learn from TillyLou’s experience of working with clients and students as a bodyworker, physiotherapist, healing practitioner, and yoga teacher. We came to understand through hearing her experiences and exploring for ourselves why the Buttafly is such a powerful tool. And while in two days we could not cover Anatomy in any depth, I learned a great amount about the human body in those few hours in the context of teaching yoga.

We explored for ourselves, and with others in the class, about our own postural strengths and weaknesses, the individuality of our bodies, and how to support our own progress. We worked with idea that ‘less can be more’ when the right interventions are made in the appropriate way.

TillyLou taught us that if we support the body well, the body’s intelligence will allow a postural release to occur naturally. We learned that the subtlest of shifts or changes to our posture while sitting in Sukasana or lying in Savasana can have a big impact on our experience.

I think we all came to realise that too often, the fundamentals of posture can be too easily overlooked in classes, or problems are even obscured by notions of what is the right way to be doing something. And of
course we learned how the simple unique design of the Buttafly can be an invaluable aid in working with our students or clients.
As it was, the days flew by and I am looking forward to doing more.

Beth, Yogalates London

I love introducing new clients of mine to the Buttfly. Seeing their faces light up as their psoture transforms allowing them to sit comfortably in a traditionally Eastern seated pose that would usually require more openess of the hips. The Buttafly afford many of my clients, esepcaiily beginner to yoga and Pialtes, confidence with yoga postures that may feel alien to them. It’s also incredibly versatile and can assist in a number of other postures. What it does in releasing spinal tension for a lot of clients suffering from back pain is phenomenal.

"I really struggle to sit cross legged in my yoga classes, due to tight hip muscle. With this block I could do all the seated postures, cross legged, in my class for the first time in years. Any of you who have the same problem, buy one.”

" At the end of the day, once used, the product speaks for itself – it has revolutionised my life providing an opportunity for treatment whenever I need, help me to take control of my own physical well being… What could be better? ”

JoRae, Alchemy Woman
" What a wonderful product. It is so easy to use and has quick results! I had a free taster and I felt like my posture was aligned in minutes. So I bought one! ”
