Master Your Pull-Up and Push-Up With Mindful Strength

A step-by-step approach to building a strong foundation for upper body strength.

Have you been trying to do pull-ups or push-ups for years? I can make this easier for you.

So many people want to work on their upper body strength, but don't really know where to begin. Every time I teach a workshop someone always tells me they have been trying push-ups for years, but they still don't feel like they can do them. This course breaks pushing and pulling down into simple progressions that will completely change the way you practice and think about upper body strength.


This course includes

Nine video lessons

Detailed downloadable PDF Guides

Intuitive Practice Plans

and a lifetime of inspiration

You can download or stream the content, and its all yours to keep.

This course will leave you feeling stronger, and able to continue your upper body strength practice on your own.

This course will make you feel good about your strength!

What You Need to Get The Most Out of This Course

1 yoga block (or a really thick book)

2 medium weight dumbbells, 10-15 lbs(heavier if you have lifting experience)

1 medium weight dumbbell or kettlebell, 25-30 lbs (heavier if you have lifting experience)

1 small weight, 2-5 lbs (or a big can or soup, or a bottle of wine)

A pull up bar (this will take you to the next level, but if you are a pure beginner it's not completely necessary)

A few words from our students:

"Just wanted to share that I watched your squat webinar and I really appreciate how you make complex ideas so accessible. I loved how you integrated nervous system work into understanding the bi-directional relationship with our tissues as well. And, I walked away with things to integrate into my own practice and work."

"The squat video was excellent and I am already recognizing all the ways I can incorporate much of this information in teaching my students."
