Introducing yoga the
Body By Yoga way

Yoga for functional fitness.

Body By Yoga focuses on the physical benefits of yoga to help you move better, feel better, and perform better. Our anatomy-based, technique-driven classes are created for functional strength, mobility, weight loss, rest day recovery, injury rehabilitation, pain relief, and more!

Created for the inflexible.

Every class provides modifications for inflexible beginners. Great for those who are brand new to fitness as well as anyone who works out and has tight muscles.

Straight To The Point Instruction.

Instead of phrases like “melt your heart,” or “root yourself to the earth,” we’ll share specific tips like which muscles to engage, where you should (and shouldn’t) be feeling each exercise, and anatomical benefits of every pose. You’ll never wonder if you’re doing a pose correctly, or why you’re doing it in the first place.

Targeted Routines For Every Goal

Instead of a one size fits all approach to yoga, we have different classes for specific goals. Need yoga for back pain? Check. Looking for a short morning workout? Check. Yoga for running? For weight loss? For recovering in between workouts? Yep, we have those too. Select the yoga class that matches your goals and level of fitness.


Our unique style of yoga.

We’ve created a unique style of yoga called Slow Burn Power Yoga. Typical yoga classes use fast moving flows to add a “cardio” element to yoga. With less time for cues in between poses, most yoga classes tend to focus almost exclusively on the breath, which is great for stress relief and improving breathing, but has little application to proper muscle engagement. Instead, we recognize that most of our students can get better cardio from walking, running, and sports.

That’s why our classes move a little slower and emphasize proper technique above all else in order to give you the time to open up your muscles, find the right modifications and adjustments, and work deeper into challenging poses.

The result is a low impact bodyweight training program that is going to push you. If you weren’t sure you could sweat from yoga then you better think again!

My favorite yoga class

I LOVE all of Dean’s yoga videos. He is challenging to follow but not so much that it’s impossible. He moves you through each pose with clear instructions on how to do the pose and what to expect from it and how it helps you become stronger. He is calm and has a very nice voice. The background music is pleasant. The workouts are about 30 minutes long so it’s possible to do two in a row if you want a longer session or just one for a shorter session. I always feel like I did “good work” afterwards. I also feel relaxed and centered. I really enjoy doing these workouts and am so glad I found them.

Great Bang for your buck yoga training

This is such a great bang for your buck yoga program, I lost body fat, got leaner abs, put on muscle, increased strength and improved flexibiilty in such short ammount of time. I highly recommened this to anyone starting out with yoga. The workouts are easy to follow and nothing too crazy or extremely challenging. Extremely great price for the quality of workouts you get.

Great program

This is a great program. I hadn’t done yoga for a long time and this was an excellent program to help me ease back into it. Love the stretches and the flexibility offered, from beginner level to more advanced. A really good program for everyone.

Best Yoga workout for men

Interesting enough I never thought I could do yoga, but with their simple to follow course I have learned to take care of my body and be more positive.

Love love love this program!!

I am newer to yoga and bought this program hoping for something appropriate for my level that would help facilitate growth and improvement and I got it! I absolutely love the yoga programs. I have already noticed an increase in strength and flexibility, and the yoga stretch/relax I do every night and it has seriously helped me to decrease anxiety and fall asleep faster. I wasn’t sure if yoga was for me or if I would be able to do it, but this program has made me absolutely fall in love with yoga. Dean is awesome as a host and instructor, and I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone interested in getting into yoga, especially if they are a man.

Good detailed instructions good easy to follow

March 29, 2022

Perfect for non yoga users

I've had this DVD for 3 months now and turn it on about 3-4 times a week and not board of it yet! I primarily follow the sweat and stretch yoga. The sweat does as described and have a wipe down rag close by. The stretch is perfect after a lifting session. There's no music in the background so you can play your own and still hear the instructions. The trainer is in depth, bit not overly talkative like Tony Horton. Only complaint is he goes a touch bit fast on some of the moves, but pause it and take as long as you want. Definitely recommend for someone getting into yoga, or someone wanting an excellent option for cool down or cardio alternative

Beginners yoga

Wonderful introduction into yoga. Definitely not intimidating . Instructor was pleasant, instructions clear. Enjoyable workout

January 26, 2022

It has been many, many years since I did yoga. Beginning to realize I need to regain some flexibility as I age and yoga is the first thing that came to my mind. Unhappy with apps and streaming, I purchased this based on reviews. I really appreciate the approach used, particularly the tips on correct and safe posture vs running rapidly rhrough a flow without regard to understanding. And I Iike that I can repeat a session as often as needed without concern that it will disappear from the streaming service.

Back Pain? buy this DVD!

I have done yoga from time to time. I had a friend remind me what I already knew. Back pain is usually a result of some other ailment in your body. It's true. After doing yoga for the last three weeks my back pain is dramatically better. This DVD will get you to stretch out your legs, hips, and other parts of your body. In doing so my pain is almost gone. I know, too good to be true. But it really helps. Each series is less than 30 minutes making it easy to accomplish in the morning. Buy this, it will make your life better.

Great for mobility and new to Yoga issues

I am a retired military veteran who has been through a lot. I was at my wit's end because I have been having mobility issues. I felt like the world was taking things from me and I was not getting anything from it. Now, I am hooked. Thank you very much for being in the right time and place to help a fellow guy grab back the reins of his life. Much appreciate it for sure!

June 13, 2021

Love this program...and I hate yoga!

Doing yoga usually makes me want to hurt the person that is making me do yoga. It is just really was not my thing. I came to this program after an short run of an antibiotic destroyed my body leaving me with weakness and tendon issues. Yoga was recommended by someone who had gone through the same issues from the same drug. I really like this program and he gives really good clear instructions. I’ve tried Yoga many times of the years (hating it every time) and this guy makes it enjoyable. Highly recommend to anyone at any fitness level to help solve pain issues or just get stronger and feel better. Note: if you are using it to combat any health issues, like I am, recommend checking with doctor first. I had to go slow to get to where I am now.

Great yoga DVD

March 20, 2021

Great Instruction!

Dean's teaching style is perfect... his narrative helps me learn easily and with confidence. After listening many times, I find myself anticipating what he's going to say, so that I'm integration the instruction. The pace is good. The expectations are slightly challenging but reasonable. I always feel better after finishing a workout with Dean.

good beginner's yoga dvd

This just arrived yesterday, so I haven't been through the whole DVD yet, but I'm really impressed with the thorough explanation of poses and modifications if needed. He emphasized that no previous experience is needed and no level of flexibility is needed to begin. I'm looking forward to gaining flexibility and strength.

Best yoga dvd

I am terrible at yoga and have tried 4 DVDs with no success. I am just not flexible. This program is awesome. 4 different classes that I can say I finally can do yoga

The best yoga I have ever purchased

I have purchased other yogo DVD's in the past and they sit untouched in the drawer. But this I use all the time, especially for stress. Dean has an easy approach to help you get in to yoga positions. If you have never taken a yoga class I highly recommend. I have purchased his other two DVD's he has, Yoga Fix, a five day 20 minute work out and Yoga Strong. Better than any yoga classes I have ever taken.

January 2, 2021

I like it so far. Challenged 100 Days of doing this program

It's 2021 and I was challenged to do 100 days of this program. I am overweight about 135lbs from my body type and have no flexibility. I can't touch the bottom of my knee caps. I am doing the Yoga Sharpen for 10 days to work on fundamentals. I currently cannot complete the program without stopping. I have no core. AND I can tell you that just by completing these fundamentals steps I feel really good about where this is headed. If you are overweight I highly suggest following along on a tablet or phone until you understand the poses - as I cannot keep my eyes on what he's doing and have my head facing the floor. You will need a Yoga Block - a cheap addition to this great platform. I have never done Yoga before and even made fun of it - just from a few days in I can see I was a complete @$$ about it. It's truly a hard workout.

Solid products and routines for growth!

Have been a supporter and member of MFY and can’t recommend Dean and his products enough. Value added for anyone wanting to build mass and enhance flexibility. A thrice a week routine for me.

Easy to Follow

I'm a Silver Back Gorilla, throw more weights on the pile kind of guy. I PROMISE you, that this Yoga thing is for real lol. You build a different kind of strength. I've only been doing it for 2 weeks now on the days that I don't lift and I feel great when I do it. I also feel ashamed by how tight I actually am. I recommend this to any muscle guys out there.

Awesome workouts - improve strength, flexibiity and balance

Great video. Started yoga with this video at age 68 after injuring right leg. Initially, I did not like it, but figured I would stick with it for a month. Glad I did. Did yoga sharpen a few times to get basics right. Now do yoga stretch and yoga strength daily. Has helped my back and knees, plus overall strength. Don't think I had any core muscles before starting these workouts. Now I can do balancing exercises. Notice a little improvement daily. Building up core muscles has taken stress off my knees and back. My posture is better and I am able to easily do household and yard chores. Including using a 3 gallon backpack sprayer without pain. Instructor's pointers started to make more sense after my muscles got some conditioning. I need to continue to use video to make sure I hold postures long enough and don't try to rush through exercises. A little bit daily works for me for my physical and mental well-being.

Simply amazing

I'm 47 and out of shape. I just did the 20 minutes beginners work out and already feel so much better. I can't wait to progress. Step by step instructions and helpful hints. This is an amazing product

August 6, 2020

Great for getting started, or starting again

This series of yoga workouts is great for beginners, but moves a little faster than some of the beginning yoga videos do. It works well for younger beginners or as the next step when you've been doing the very easy workouts for a few weeks and are ready to progress.

July 26, 2020

The DVD is exactly what I was looking for.

I bought this DVD for a yoga class for senior women. We rely on DVDs only for instruction. After many years of using the same DVD, this one has been a much-needed change. We are learning more of the finer points of body alignment and form.

July 17, 2020

Great beginners workout with good direction

July 12, 2020

Good teaching and great advice on poses

I really like this so far! I’ve always had trouble with my knees during lunges. Dean gave excellent advice and used a block during the foundations section that I’ve been able to carry over into circuit training! I like that the advice will help prevent further strain and injury. Thank you! Well worth the price of purchasing this DVD.

July 8, 2020

Eminently Do-Able and Truly Phenomenal

I've been using Yoga Boost for about three weeks now, and I'm loving it. This is a big deal, because although I'm a lifelong fitness guy, the one physical practice I've NEVER loved is yoga, though I've tried several times before. I've always come away feeling frustrated and unsuccessful. Body by Yoga has changed all that for me. The workouts are definitely challenging, but I enjoy them immensely, and feel great both during and after the classes. I'm starting to really improve, and feeling incredible changes in the way I stand and move throughout the day. Superior workouts, superior instruction.

Add Body by Yoga to your Exercise Regimen

My wife and I have been using Yoga Fix with Dean Polhman for four weeks and have jsut added Yoga Boostto our daily program. We are both 76 years old and are feeling the benefits of using Dean's program. We would strongly recommend both for your exercise program.

Good for a home yoga session. Definitely for beginners

I do yoga at the studio every now and then, so I thought this beginner DVD was the right spot for me. It definitely is for pure beginners. Anyone who hasn't done yoga at all before would benefit from this. He shows your proper form and get you into poses anyone can work on. I should have purchased something a little more advanced. Even a few classes a year was enough to surpass this dvd. I think what would have made this 5 stars is if at least one of the 4 classes was a little more advanced.

Do It Correctly

I am 77 years old and have been taking yoga classes for over 30 years. Since the virus and social distancing, I decided to try a couple of dvds so that I could see and listen to someone. Best move that I have made. Dean is probably the best instructor I have worked with. His demonstrations are excellent making sure the body is in proper form. It certainly improved the way I am doing postures. Thank you.

you will feel better after one session

I bought this disc to replace a begining Yoga disc I'd worn out. I will be a perennial novice at Yoga, I started late in life. I was attracted to the series of discs and the opportunity to advance. I am still doing the first disc, because it has toned me. It's a perfect mix of poses, Dean does a magnificent job of explaining them, in 22 minutes I'm refreshed and I've worked some muscles. I like to mix up my fitness routine, and I work full time so I enjoy the efficiency and results of the first disc. I absolutely plan to move on to the others. However, I'm not one to rush into things.

April 1, 2020

Easy to understand and follow

I've used the Yoga Basics and Stretching 3-4 times now. These are really good stretches for the hip flexors and other muscles. I'm not a flexible person and always dealing with tight muscles so I'm hoping this helps in the long run. So far I am pleased with my purchase. I hope someday as I get better at Yoga I can move up to the harder workouts included in the video.

My favorite yoga video

I started doing yoga because I have problems with my feet, and as I've gotten older, more injuries everywhere. Yoga has really helped me to build strength, balance and flexibility. I especially enjoy Dean because he explains well and gives you choices for the level of difficultly that is right for you. I like that he does not make it a "spiritual" or meditative experience - just about exercise and overall wellness.

February 24, 2020

Finally found a yoga dvd that will not break the bank and doesn't drive me crazy.

The whole point, for me, of doing yoga is relaxation and stretching to lessen the pain in my feet and legs. I can not stand the breathy voice yoga instructors that say insanely irritating things like "happy face". These videos are done in a normal calm voice with very clear instruction. Great dvds. Can't wait to try out the free bonus videos. I will certainly be looking for more stuff from them later on.

He’s not shirtless

The yoga is fine, the instruction is fine. But ladies, if you were hoping to see some hot male chesty action while yoga-ing, you’ll be disappointed (as I was). He’s shirtless on the case photo, but he keeps his shirt on throughout all the exercises. 🤷‍♀️

I’ve been always wanting to start yoga. I thought this program might be good, but I realize there’s no closed captions. I’m deaf and trying to understand what the man saying in the video.

Life saver!!

This has been a life saver. Was to the point of working, doing hospital rounds and then home to sleep. Know I look forward to de-stressing, and feeling more at piece after work and doing yoga. This is truly for me as it is easy to do modified exercise. I have even started to recommend this to my patients. Please buy this and you will see the world in a whole new way!!

January 29, 2020

Great !

I love this . I expected to be totally intimidated but I read the reviews and thought I’m going for it . I didn’t have blocks so I bought some. Start slow and do it correctly and you will love it . I suppose I would be classed as a senior senior but as I hate labels ....
