Adding strength training to your yoga is a great way to build strength and capacity. In this unconventional yoga class, we’ll be weaving strength work throughout our practice. Try this class to go deeper in your strength work using heavier weights and trying lower repetitions. Note: You will need one pair of medium to heavy weights.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 3, the final class of the Yoga4Strength series.

Why am I incorporating weights now in my mat work? Bc I brought my weights into my home office rather than my home yoga room, so I do it 2x/wk. And I just do what Melissa says here and in the other two vids in the series. I feel stronger, more embodied, and frankly a little more strength gives a spring to my step. Brava Melissa, always. Good addition, DYWM.

What a great series. Be careful with those weights around your bare feet everyone!
