NEW! PREPARE TO PULL UP
4-Week, Pull Up Specific Strength-Training Program for Beginners
In Prepare to Pull Up, we'll center pull up specific strength but with a whole body approach. You'll pull and push, and you'll work both your upper and lower body, all in a way that will prepare your strength to be able to do a pull up.
This short, 4-week program is perfect for brand new beginners to pull ups, although exercises will all be completely scalable for any level of strength and experience. So if you have never trained for a pull up, cannot do a single pull up, or can do 10 pull ups, this program will have something to offer you.
YOGA WITH RESISTANCE BANDS
Resistance bands can be invaluable tools that challenge your body and mind in new ways and keep them strong and agile. Each class explores a theme or peak pose using resistance bands.
CREATIVE YOGA CLASS SERIES
Themed class series that combine novel prop use, bands, and balls. Experience highly innovative sequences and explode your ideas for your own classes. Popular series include: One Prop Many Possibilities, Balls & Bands Mobility, Pelvic Floor Explore, Balls & Bands Primal Movement.
HANDSTAND & WHEEL "PROP"ORTUNITIES
Mini-workshop series to explore systematic, process-focused preparation for the physical demands of handstand and wheel pose. These workshops combine progressive drill and skill work with the creative and effective use of props and equipment (like resistance bands, a dowel, a chair, and a bolsters.)
CLASSES FOR YOUR SORE SPOTS
You'll find classes targeted toward alleviating discomfort in your hips, SI joints, low back, pelvic floor, hip flexors, neck, feet, jaw, wrists, and knees to name a few. Get into your body in new, feel good ways and feel better in your body more of the time.
YOGA FLOW & GENTLE YOGA
Move dynamically and fluidly with minimal props. Each targeted class thoroughly and efficiently builds toward a peak in a playful and progressive sequence. Class intensity ranges from gentle to intermediate.
SELF-MASSAGE & RESTORATIVE MOVEMENT
Gather your therapy balls for self-massage and your props for restorative and breath work. Down-regulate your over-stimulated nervous system, rest and recover.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
I absolutely love Laurel’s Yoga with Bands online classes! Every class incorporates new “wake up” activations for different areas of the body and her logical sequences make every class feel like an adventure!
I am loving your Sweet and Simple Strength workouts and did the B2 version today. Incorporating these tempo-based and repetitive movement sequences into my week is doing wonders for my nervous system. I finished today and thought, "I feel more put together"—in my physical body and in my mind! It's an odd phrase but I think you know what I mean. Yay for a varied movement diet!
Just wanted to share how happy I still am with your online studio. I will turn 54 in April. For the first time in my life I am aware of how my body feels as it moves. All thanks to your razor-sharp instruction. There is a whole new world to discover.

PRAISE FOR LAUREL'S VIRTUAL STUDIO:
Thank you for putting energy and research into delivering key information about the topic of strength in Strength Science 101. You did this so clearly. I found your lectures quite engaging and accessible. The photos and analogies were helpful. Additionally, the video increments were helpful to parse listening time. After this course, I feel like I have a much deeper understanding as to how strength occurs and why you teach us specific strategies. I also feel more motivated to lift heavier weights."
I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying Kettlebell Gym. I had done a couple of kettlebell classes (Russian kettlebells). I enjoyed them, but I didn't realize how much more fun kettlebells could be. I love how many different movements and planes of motion you integrate. And I really appreciate the atmosphere you create. One of sharing (rather than imparting) knowledge. I am learning a lot and look forward to the next sessions.
Hi Laurel! I just took your kettlebell class and it was amazing. First timer, always afraid to touch them at the gym but not anymore. Your passion for movement and teaching is contagious and I loved every minute of class. I’m excited to participate and learn so much more. Thank you!
