Why is Xen Strength Yoga with Weights DIFFERENT ?
My program offers a UNIQUE approach to traditional yoga by combining a creative flow with light weights. This fusion provides a transformational workout designed to sculpt, lengthen, and challenge every major muscle group. Xen Strength Yoga with weights BUILDS MUSCLE, increases FLEXIBILITY, and boosts BODY CONFIDENCE by taking your body further, faster-no matter what your fitness level.

from the DVD’s back cover:
“Danielle is one of a kind. She lights up a room and has great energy, which is incredibly infectious. Her classes are terrific and her new technique incorporating weights with yoga is genius!”
Xen Strength Yoga with Weights is for you if you’ve ever said:
“I don’t even break a sweat when I do yoga” or “Yoga isn’t really a workout”
You must have never taken MY yoga class before- otherwise, you would have seen me jump around the floor during class avoiding the HUGE PILES OF SWEAT.
“I don’t have time”
That one I’m not buying. Don’t make EXCUSES, make time—how much TV do you watch? If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way- if it’s not, you’ll find an excuse. LUCKILY I’ve broken the workout into 3 segments that you can do alone for a 20, 40, or 70 minute time block. Get off facebook and grab some weights!
“I need to burn calories when I workout”
Who doesn’t? That’s why I created Xen Strength Yoga with Weights. The Cancer Prevention Program reported, “We found that people who practice yoga GAINED LESS WEIGHT over a 10-year period than those who did not. This was independent of physical activity and dietary patterns.” So without changing their eating habits or doing more cardio? YOU BET.
“I need to spend my time running, spinning, ( insert other sport here )”
Great news: When you use yoga to CROSSTRAIN and stretch your body properly, you STRENGTHEN opposing muscle groups. Yoga can help INCREASE your range of motion and increase your ENDURANCE, which will help you run FURTHER, cycle FASTER, and lift MORE weight.
“I can’t afford to take classes every week”
I know, it can be a budget buster to pay up to $30 a class a few times a week. My DVD costs LESS than the cost of one fitness class, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
“I’m not flexible enough for yoga”
This one is the all-time classic excuse! The whole point of yoga is to stretch to a DEEPER place than you are at right now- but everyone begins and ends at a different point. The ONLY difference between a flexible and inflexible person is how much deeper they go to FEEL the SAME thing. And I promise to never virtually measure how far your fingers are from the floor.
“But Yoga is for grandmas”
Yep, it can be, and for good reason…. HEALTHY, KICK-BUTT grandmas live EXTRA LONG LIVES because they practice yoga: Researchers report that people who do just three 60-minute sessions of semi-vigorous yoga per week, were 9 YEARS HEALTHIER on average than non-exercisers. SEE!
“Yoga is too religious”
First off- yoga ISN’T a religion, or a cult for that matter, but if the OM-ING freaks you out then chill, because there isn’t one chant in the whole video. I take my practice of all 8 limbs of yoga seriously- but I’m NOT A PREACHER, so if you’re just here to get a yoga butt, I’m cool with that.
“I don’t know the poses”
THANK GOD, or I wouldn’t have a job, and you would have no reason to buy my DVD!
“I have a bad_________insert body part here”
Let go of your ache-y baggage, and stretch those tight muscles out- you know what they say about an OUNCE OF PREVENTION: “In a study of health insurance statistics, yogis showed hospitalization rates that were 87% less than non-yogis for heart disease, 55% less for benign and malignant tumors, 30% less for infectious diseases, and 50% less for out-patient doctor visits.” You’ll be BETTER OFF on the mat than in a hospital bed.

The reviews are in, and reviewers LOVE Xen Strength Yoga with Weights!
“Danielle does a really great job of combining weight work with yoga poses .There’s not a single crunch in this entire hour, yet the next day my abs felt like I’d done hundreds of them. Especially my obliques, which I find hard to really target doing cross-over crunches.”
|If you’re skeptical about yoga giving you a good work out, think again. Xen Strength Yoga with Weights ROCKS! The white and black contrast works really well for this video. Helps you focus exactly what you need to focus on. Leaving no background noise to distract you.The video IS A GREAT, GREAT WORKOUT! And YOU need to try it.
more xen strength praise:
“Within a month of practicing Xen Strength Yoga with Weights twice a week, I noticed a huge change in my body: my arms were more defined, thighs and glutes more shapely, and I could feel my body getting stronger and more toned.”
|“After switching 2 regular yoga classes for 2 Xen Strength Yoga with Weights classes a week, and changing NOTHING else, I lost 5 pounds and 4 inches in just 2 months!”
The one class I try never to miss is Danielle’s Xen Strength Yoga with Weights. Her instruction is clear and intuitive. The simplest command to move a heel or push out a palm completely improves my poses and makes the workout very effective. And Danielle’s upbeat attitude and sense of humor makes the time spent thoroughly enjoyable.
|Danielle makes yoga fun! Not only is she technically wonderful, giving instruction that makes sense to novices and experts alike, but Danielle maintains a lighthearted, upbeat approach.
“Danielle is one of the most impressive and insightful yoga teachers I have yet to experience. She brings a warmth and confidence to her teaching, a knowledge of the mind and body connection, and you always feel like you are in masterful hands.”
|Danielle is an extraordinarily gifted teacher. By sharing her expertise with generosity, humor and attention to detail, Danielle creates a challenging, yet nurturing space where her students can continually explore and grow. Taking a class led by Danielle is a deeply gratifying experience for both body and soul.

i’m sure i’ll love it too! >>>
I am an E-RYT- 500 certified teacher, and have been practicing yoga for over 15 years. I teach a kick-butt yoga class that focuses on alignment and breath to open your body through a creative sequence, designed to make you smile as much as you’ll sweat. More and more, I noticed that my students would lift weights after doing yoga. This inspired me to develop Xen Strength and create a modern twist on yoga that truly meets my client’s needs.
