Day 18: The Power
welcome to the power in this practice. We're going to target key muscles in your core to create full body strength. When you're ready, all you need is a yoga mat. Let's begin. Let's start by warming up the wrists. We're going to begin this practice on the hands a bit, so it's always important to get a few circles in, just like we've done throughout all the other classes. In this, Siri's have organic movements, right? Your hands won't feel the same every day when they first touch the ground. You want to move, you're kind of fluidly. Check in. Maybe press the back of the hand on the floor, sway a little bit side to side. I like the paw the ground a bit. Have said that in almost every video. But it's just something that I don't find is very common when people talk about warming up the wrists and it actually feels really good, because you get kind of like a gripping of the hand, like you're squeezing, creating a fist, and it helps just gonna wake up the muscles. And the forum's helps you u...

If you’re looking for a yoga and strength training experience in the form of a fun and challenging workout routine, this is the course for you. Full Body Strength takes a holistic approach, combining the best of yoga, calisthenics and circuit training. You’ll leave each workout fatigued, knowing that you pushed yourself to your limits and did your work for the day. In this course, you’ll learn how to:
- Build full-body strength
- Increase your endurance, body control, stamina and more
- Improve your power and stability
- Challenge yourself with drills to develop muscle endurance
- Enhance your yoga practice
Instructor Patrick Beach is based in Los Angeles and travels the world leading classes, workshops and teacher training programs. Named one of the Top 100 Most Influential Yoga Teachers in America, his strong presence has allowed him to share yoga internationally over the last several years. He is the creator of Awakening Yoga and has been a Global Yoga Ambassador to Virgin Active. In this yoga strength training class, Patrick will teach you how to do:
- Slides, holds, circuits, drills and plyometrics
- Detailed squat modifications and fire-inducing core sequences
- One-armed movements, core work and hip mobility drills, starting from side plank and working into a strength-building flow
- A ladder-style flow, with rounds of pistol squats, push-up variations and challenging standing poses
Day 1: The Burn
After a brief wrist warm up, you’ll dive into a series of one-armed movements that begin in side plank and evolve into more strenuous yoga for upper body conditioning circuits. While familiar yoga poses such as downward facing dog, crescent lunge and warrior III will appear throughout class, these poses will be reworked to wake up the body and help you develop greater body control and straight arm strength. Included in this class is a series of core work and hip mobility drills to fully round out your practice.
Day 2: The Slide
With a highlight on core and arm strength, this class uses yoga blankets and sliding movements in a circuit-style challenge to keep your body moving and heated. There will be little rest time until the end of class, where you’ll shift your efforts to hip mobility work.
Day 3: The Fire
You’ll recognize several of the poses utilized in this strength yoga workout class: warrior II, wild thing, downward-facing dog, wheel and more. While the poses may be recognizable, the sequences are unique and include strength-building rounds of pistol squats, push-up variations and challenging standing poses.
Day 4: The Power
Yoga poses that target key muscles in your core create full body strength. You’ll push yourself to the limit in a repetitious, flow-based sequence that uses the foundations of downward-facing dog, plank, chaturanga, lunges and more recognizable poses. These poses will be sequenced into challenging circuits fused with jumping movements designed to increase your heart rate. Additional core work will leave you feeling sore, and you’ll close out the class by moving through supported bridge pose.
Day 5: The Tension
These yoga poses for balance and strength increase stability by focusing your energy on holding difficult positions for longer periods of time. Throughout the class, you’ll use pulses, lifts, holds and fluid movement to strategically build strength and flexibility. Be sure to have two yoga blocks handy to assist these goals. You’ll begin class with leg work and eventually move to the floor for pick-up-based drills.
Day 6: Recover
Use this gentle restorative yoga sequence to recover and prepare your body for a day of rest. Included in this class are light stretches and drills designed to keep your body in flow while still giving your muscles a break from previous workouts.
Day 7: Rest Day
Today is the first of four rest days included in the 28-day programming for Full Body Strength.
