Although ALL of my classes are Vinyasa (unless specifically noted as a different style, like Rebecca’s Ghosh), the following classes have a focus of Upper Body Strength.

Hooray for planks! Vinyasa

July 5th, 2022|

Do you love planks? Me too!! Ok, even if you don't, do them. They're good for you, your yoga practice and your all around spinal health.

Funky Dolphins and Inversions Vinyasa Flow

September 19th, 2021|

Meet my new kittens! Lol... they make a guest starring appearance in this class. Aside from giggling over their antics, we do some yoga. We work several variations of funky dolphin, headstand, and pincha. [...]

Ashtanga Half-Primary (Kinda)

June 18th, 2021|

Can you do the Ashtanga Primary Series in 60 minutes? Um... no, you can not. Not unless you speed it up by counting fast through the holds and skipping quite a few poses. Voila, [...]

Arms & Core

June 18th, 2021|

Love planks, chaturangas, and core? Me too! We really hit the strength work hard in this class. On the flip side, we lay off the legs a bit more than usual, so if you've [...]

Fun with Planks & Core

May 23rd, 2021|

The request this morning was LOTS of movement and extra core. Check and heck. This is a challenging class that is nonstop strength building. Of course it's still a vinyasa class and we flow [...]

Handstand/Pincha Vinyasa Flow

May 9th, 2021|

Friday handstand flow. We spend A LOT of time upside down in this class. A lot. Every flow has some kind of drill to get you upside down or build the strength to get [...]

Challenging Inversion Flow

May 9th, 2021|

ok, don't be intimidated by the title. Yes, this is a challenging flow with lots of opportunities to go upside down, but that doesn't mean you have to go upside down to do this [...]

Alignment Focused Vinyasa

April 14th, 2021|

By Request! This vinyasa flow class pauses and holds some of our foundational poses to really work on alignment and clean up our practice. I would call it a hybrid class. We do move [...]

Planks + Planks

April 9th, 2021|

So much shoulder and core work in this class. Your shoulders will be thanking me for days 😉 Please remember that you can always do plank work from your knees if your shoulders start [...]

Yoga for shoulder strength

March 24th, 2021|

Love Dolphin pose? Me too! This is an all around flow and Vinyasa class, but we do spend a little extra time in varying planks and holding dolphin pose. Your shoulders will feel this [...]

Shoulder Therapy & Heart Opening

March 11th, 2021|

By request! Lots of shoulder stretching and really getting into that shoulder mobility. If you spend time hunched over a keyboard, or your phone, or in the car, or take a lot of vinyasa [...]

Yoga for Strength

March 4th, 2021|

This is a strength focused class. #sorrynotsorry 😉 We work upper and lower body strength. It's a little challenging, but it doesn't move as quickly as some of the other classes, so I guess [...]

Strength Focused Vinyasa

February 10th, 2021|

After a couple of days of lower intensity, this was a no-more-mr-nice-guy class 🙂 We work strength all over the place. Mountain climbers and vinyasas work shoulders and core, one-legged squats and bridge variants [...]

Relentless Upper body Ladder Flow

February 5th, 2021|

Do you love not holding poses? Do you love working a handstand into lots of vinyasas? This class is for you. We also do many dolphins and variations of dolphin. Your shoulders might have [...]

Shoulder Therapy

January 26th, 2021|

Grab your strap, we are stretching those shoulders today. This is the kind of practice you should incorporate into your weekly routine.

Squats & Dolphin 🙂

January 26th, 2021|

This is a balanced class between upper and lower body focus. We start out with lots of pulsing squats. They get easier as we go, I promise! Then we flow and move on to [...]

Hard All-Around Flow

January 22nd, 2021|

This is a challenging class, head to toe. Maybe there's a little extra work for shoulders as we work plank variations into our flow. I was definitely my shoulders by the end and that's [...]

Flow with Pressing/Floating drills

January 21st, 2021|

This should really be titled "Companion to Yesterday's Core Class." We hit lots of core yesterday, except one very notable muscle. Your favorite and mine, the iliopsoas (psoas for short). If you've never done [...]

Upper Body Focus… I think.

December 31st, 2020|

I intended to work upper body in this class, shoulders in particular. Mission accomplished. We definitely do this. However, I accidentally also worked legs. Like, a lot. Oops! So much so, that I called [...]


December 30th, 2020|

This is a challenging strength-oriented class. No handstands. No arm balances. Lots of squats and planks. I really felt this one (though that might be more a consequence of yesterday's slow flow class). Challenge [...]

Planks and handstands

December 18th, 2020|

By request, we work on some handstands today. I threw a little pincha in too while we were at it. To that end, it was important to warm up our core with planks. After [...]

Shoulders, Core, and sneaky Glute Work

December 2nd, 2020|

I set off to work shoulders and core today. So, to that end, I thought, planks! We did plenty of this, but by adding some big, dramatic leg movements, requiring an equally dramatic activation [...]

Focus on Shoulders and Hips

November 19th, 2020|

This class has two focuses: 1) strengthening shoulders and hips; and 2) mindful awareness of what occurs during external rotation when one element is fixed on the ground. Here's what I mean. Starting in [...]

A little bit of everything

November 4th, 2020|

I don't have ADHD, but you would never know it from this class. It's all over the place. We work arms, legs, balancing... all the way around, without a specific focus. We move faster [...]
