This workout combines standing, seated, and supine Yoga asanas that are inherently isometric in nature, with many joints holding a position at one time. These poses are chosen for their upper body positions and will be taught in a way to build strength, improve muscle contractions, lower risk of injury, reduce inflammation, increase bone density, burn fat, and help with mobility.
When we perform an asana and resist the dumbbells and Yoga strap, muscles contract while they are held in a specific position. These muscles will essentially get better at contracting into this joint position. Isometric training can reduce joint inflammation and improve your metabolism if done regularly.
You will need a Yoga strap and dumbbells for this practice. We will move slowly and methodically to give time to feel the resistance. When muscles are stronger throughout a joint range, we have less pain and more mobility.
