Building strength and managing stress are both important components of a healthy lifestyle. With Xen Strength Yoga, you can roll out a mat and take care of both at the same time.
Using both weights and warrior poses, Diamond applies the practice to all different goals, and we’ve been sharing them one by one. For example, you may prefer to tackle a full-body sequence in half an hour, or maybe you only have ten minutes and want to make sure you’re maintaining that (super important) core strength or stretch out hamstrings that are super tight from race training.
We’ve compiled all of her Xen Strength routines, here, so you can choose whichever applies to your current yogic need day to day. No matter how you decide to flow and flex, you’ll be getting stronger and calmer. Oh, and did we mention you can do them anywhere?
