9 Lessons / with Sadie Nardini

If you struggle with certain areas of your body, or want to tune up your whole body, but you want to do it with self love and empowerment and turn your problem areas into power areas- this is your course!


9 Exclusive Yoga Shred® workouts, all under 20 minutes, or less to spark incredible shifts in strength, muscle tone, cardio, and confidence!

Targeted workouts that strengthen, sculpt, tighten and lift areas like saggy arms, a weak core, droopy glutes and more.

A humorous perspective on terms like “dumbo arms” and “muffin top” – reclaim your body positivity even while working to reshape it.

What it is:

A New Way to Work Out for Maximum Results

Each session leads you through 3 rounds of joint-safer high intensity interval training (HIIT), based on conscious yoga pose alignment, with mindful breath. Sadie is an anatomy expert so she moves you strongly, but with plenty of modifications for your specific needs. 

Full Body Workouts That Also Target ‘Problem’ Areas

The sessions each focus on a specific body area, but also provide whole body strength and cardio for a holistic fitness experience that will leave you invigorated, and gaining the results of a much longer class in under 20 minutes. Thanks, science! 

Great for All Levels. No Yoga Experience Needed!

These movements are simple, and powerful. Wherever you start, you will be able to progress in strength and stamina with me into your best body, mind and energy ever – inside and out. These practices grow as with you!

What you need to take this course

A yoga mat, 2 yoga blocks recommended. Two light (1/2-5 lb) hand or wrist weights, and ankle weights optional but recommended. 

What’s included:

9 of Sadie’s Signature Problem Area Rescue Yoga Shred® Classes

In 20 minutes or less, you’ll both target problem areas and also get a whole body strength and cardio workout. These combo yoga – HIIT classes are Sadie’s signature style, Yoga Shred®. All sessions are exclusive to this program – you won’t find them anywhere else but here. 

Focused Challenge Area Tune Ups

Everyone has areas they want to sculpt and strengthen, and this is great for overall body balance and fitness. On this program you’ll find sessions for lifting arm flap (triceps). Belly bloat (low belly and abs), and tune up thighs, waist, calves, shoulders and more.

A Self Esteem Boost

Here on the course, we turn body ‘problems’ into the powerful sense of well being and inner strength you’ll create when you move strongly, and learn to dance with your perceived imperfections. We are all human. We all have them. We change what we can – and we rock the rest, too! You’ll learn how to strike this beautiful balance here with me. 

Forever Access!

 Once you get this course, you keep it forever and can return to the workouts anytime you want. They will become part of your weekly routine, and you can use them whenever you want to target certain areas, too.

Problem area rescue-2

A message from your teacher.

As a yoga and fitness expert, I hear from clients every day who have problem areas they want fixed. Some actual requests: “I have no #ss! Help me with this Flatty Patty I call a rear end!” “My arms flap like Dumbo’s ears!” “This muffin top has got to go!” 

Yet as an instructor whose main life’s calling is to empower my clients, not tear them down, and as a woman who was really self-critical and picked myself apart for years, hearing this language was hard for me…until I realized that I could help people improve problem areas – AND do it in a way that re-writes the old negative stories about them  into sources of strength, inside and out.

My program gets you incredibly lean, strong muscles, and the addition of cardio will melt away old body fat and leave you looking and feeling fabulous – for your unique shape.

You’ll do all of this this in just 20 minutes or less! With me, you work out smarter…not longer.  

And I never tear you down – I build you up. I want you to stay motivated and make changes, but that confident crown will never fall from your head! 

The name of each class is inspired by something I or other people have critically called their problem areas, or have been called by others. This is meant to re-frame the shame, bring in humor, and turn those stories on their heads so that you leave every workout feeling fully empowered – not devalued and small.  

After all – for me, healthy and strong for your body type is the new skinny – whether you’re skinny or curvy or anything in-between. Let’s get there together!


“Sadie has a way of lightening things up around places of my body I’ve been ashamed of and struggled with for years. This allowed me to really work hard and actually make progress where before I would give up or feel stuck. Now I’m so strong in my body after her classes, I forget to hate myself like I used to. I think I’ve left that behind. I can’t thank you enough!”

– Elizabeth, 36

“These workouts are fabulously challenging, yet they don’t hurt my old knee or shoulder injuries like other, more impact-heavy classes do. I see more muscle tone in 20 minutes with Sadie than I used to get in brutal hourlong gym workouts. I don’t know what magic this is – but I’m hooked!” 

– Anna, 57

“I always despised exercise and would have to force myself to do it. Sadie makes things so engaging and exciting that all of a sudden, we’re done, I’m sweaty, and I actually liked the class! She will get you on the mat, work you very hard – and you’ll be strangely happy about it! Plus, my Flatty Patty is now a Juicy Lucy – thanks, Sadie!” 

– Bethany, 44
