How-To Approach This Class

body strong is set up as a 30 day program with five videos. We're gonna do five workouts a week having two rest days. I want you to start doing the videos with me. If you're not able to keep up with me or do as many reps is ideo modify. This is the beauty of having this practice in your own home. Press pause. Take a break. Take Childs. Come back. Join me when you're ready. Once you start advancing in these postures and these workouts if you want more press pause, keep wrapping it out. If they're certain movements that you love that are just working for you are really working a certain target area again. Press pause. Keep wrapping it out. And on your rest days I encourage you to do just that. Please rest your body I know were eager and we want to build strength. But muscles on lee grow interesting steak, so don't take that for granted. Rest when you need to rest. That way you can give it your all next time. You're right back here on the mat with me as a yoga teacher and as a yoga studen...

t. The biggest thing I preaches. Listen to your body. So you're welcome to do your own yoga. Practice your own workout. Any other Cody plans you have. In addition to this, I would suggest trying each video one time. Maybe give it a week and see how your body feels. I want you to know how you are after doing this plan by itself. So check out. Let's just say arms and if the next day you're feeling fine two days later, your arms aren't that sore, do whatever work out you normally do. That's great. But try this on your own without anything else, except for maybe some flexibility. Extra stretches. I don't give you too much of that and see how it feels in your body and after week one. Take it from there. If you want to add another, Cody plans. That's beautiful. If you want to just do this plan, it is a full body strengthening plan.

Are you looking for an intensive yoga experience that will help you dramatically strengthen and tone your entire body? Then BodyStrong is for you. This month-long course is filled with effective exercises, challenging movements, and lots of tips and techniques that will activate your body and leave you feeling great in your own skin. In this class, you will use yoga for muscle tone and increasing overall strength. You’ll learn how to:

  • Strengthen and tone your whole body
  • Isolate and engage muscles in your arms, legs, abs and booty
  • Work to muscle exhaustion and continue through the burn so you get the most out of your workout

Workout Descriptions:

Day 1: Toned Core
Core work is key for a strong, toned body and proper alignment. In this lesson, you’ll practice yoga to tone your stomach and fire up your entire core; the front abdominals, obliques, and your back body, which will set you up for success for the rest of your BodyStrong journey.

Day 2: Toned Legs
Toning your legs is about so much more than just strengthening. Today’s class will be pretty quad-intensive, but you’ll spend a lot of time on mobility as well, stretching and strengthening through dynamic movement to truly practice yoga poses to tone your legs.

Day 3: Toned Arms
Today you’ll build heat and feel the burn as you move through rep after rep of plank, chaturanga, dolphin pose, and more. Get ready to ignite and tone your biceps, triceps, shoulders and back body. Practice these yoga poses to tone your arms and shape your upper body.

Day 4: Toned Booty
Through a variety of asana, squat and lunge variations and reps, you’ll work your glute muscles in ways you never have before in today’s lesson. Get ready for an energizing, booty-lifting challenge.

Day 5: Toned Body
As yogis, we work through a lot of “push” movements; chaturanga, downward facing dog, plank—but we lack a lot of the “pull” movements. Today, it’s all about the pull. Step into full-body tone yoga and get fired up!

Day 6: Rest Day
Today is a rest day. Take a breather and let your muscles recover.

Day 7: Rest Day
Today is a rest day, which is crucial for your muscles to have the chance to grow.

Fantastic class and teacher! This is a great routine to get into when working out from home has never been so trendy. This series absolutely pushed me to go further than I thought I could and luckily proved right. The results? Brighter mood, better sleep, fitter bod, more energy and overall feels like I accomplished something worthwhile! *Pro tips: 1) When Ashley mentions grabbing socks to make one of the moves harder, the ones for your hands do not need to be worn on your hands like gloves. 2) Do this series with an accountabilibuddy - for me, my fiancée - so when you mix up the step noted above and have wool socks up to your elbows ready to start the workout, someone can be there to laugh with you. 3) For the photographers, an old 5D MkII camera box was a perfect substitution for the needs of the yoga block used for some of the moves.

This is amazing. Definitely NOT a beginner class, but Ashley is very clear in her presentation. The pacing is steady and demanding, but I find my strength and stamina improving with every workout. I have to simplify lessons to accommodate weakened muscles after several years of ill health, but I do what I can, and it feels wonderful. I do think this should perhaps be upgraded to ‘advanced’ from current ‘intermediate’ level grade. Even Ashley gets a bit winded and occasionally shakey, and she is as fit and strong as anyone I’ve ever seen.

I have switched from my regular HIIT (high-intensity interval training ) to this workout. Recommend it if you've been working out for 3 -4 months or more and want to step up your fitness level.
