Yoga asks that we overcome


Many yogis just like you get very far in their yoga practice, but they can’t piece the final bits together when it comes to pressing into handstand. That doesn’t have to be you.

You may have tried a thousand tutorials and workshops, and you’re starting to think you’ll never be able to float up into handstand. But this simply isn’t true. You just haven’t had sustained-enough guidance and the right customizations to pull it all together. 

Are past injuries, perceived weaknesses, lack of mobility, or age holding you back from achieving your peak state on the mat? I’m here to tell you that you can rocket past any and all of these common hurdles. I know because I’ve seen many of my students do it — often much faster than they expected.

Hi, I'm Leigha Butler.

I teach people how to press into handstand and to weave the press into their yoga flows. This course in Puppy Pressing is the first step on the journey to more difficult presses.

Puppy Press is simply too much fun not to share.

I never thought my 40s would be this freaking exciting.

Like many people, I thought I’d enter my 40s and basically start slowing down and taking it easy. 

I assumed I’d naturally get some creaks here and pains there.

Instead, the opposite has been true. 

I am having more of a raucously good time with my yoga practice than I dared imagine in my 20s. 

The sensations of floating my feet up and having control on my hands is the most freeing and empowering way I have ever used my body. 


Press is addicting, it’s intoxicating, and it’s brought my body into balance in a way I didn’t expect. 

  • My chronic back pain is gone.
  • My chronic shoulder pain has vanished. 
  • My core is stronger now than it was when I was a teen running track. 

All of this is exactly why I feel called to share the press journey with you. 

I thought my calling was to teach yoga philosophy and anatomy, but I’ve found, unexpectedly, that teaching this pinnacle skill is an  effective and efficient way to do both!

I sincerely hope you’ll join me on this incredibly fun and empowering adventure.

If you do, I genuinely look forward to cheering you on. 




But that doesn't mean it won't take hard work.

Follow along with two 20-min flows per week to build your puppy press in a targeted and playful but no-nonsense way.

Build strength and mobility in the exact areas you need for the press. Follow the daily worksheets to double or triple your strength in a way that straight yoga cannot do for you. Controversial but true. 

step 3


Share your progress with the community. Ask questions and get feedback. This accountability component is why this program stands head and shoulders above other comparably priced programs online. Be involved in the community as much or as little as you desire.

It's too easy to stagnate.

Don't let your practice die a slow death because you decided not to take it to the next level.

If you aren’t willing to own your power and see it through, this isn’t for you.

If you’ve become complacent in your yoga practice, this isn’t for you. 

Those who float had to get a little uncomfortable first.

Understand that it takes fire, action and bloody-hot desire to break into a next, rewarding layer of the yoga practice and of life.

Are you fired up enough to get to the other side of complacency? I’m assuming if you’re reading this, you are.

“The weekly exercises were so expertly curated to guide us toward vertical that pressing up into handstand just kind of happened. I feel like it snuck up on me because the exercises prepped us so well without me even realizing it was happening.”

A Word About My 'No Brainer" Pricing

How am I able to offer this no-brainer pricing? 

To tell you the truth, I am a little trepidatious about offering the course at such a low price given the incredible value, the comprehensiveness of the content, and the sheer capacity for life-transformation the course holds. 

There is the risk that you will undervalue the course because I have priced it so cheaply. 

There is the risk that you won’t really roll up your sleeves and get serious about taking action throughout the next four weeks because the investment is so small. 

In fact, in the past I have charged in the ballpark of $2,000 for similar trainings, in part because I wanted my students to take it seriously and get results!! (And they did!)

But here’s the gamble I am taking today: 

You see, my “bread & butter,” so to speak, comes from my online studio and from my full 12-week pike press handstand course, which is normally priced at $996. Offering this abridged program that focuses exclusively on the puppy press is a way for me to prove myself to you without asking you to make a commitment that feels too big. 

Ultimately, I know you will find that I’ve over-delivered on value when it comes to the thoroughness and effectiveness of the course. 

Once you, or someone else who signs up for the course see that my offerings give you tangible improvements in your strength and in your practice, I am confident that those who wish to continue their study of the press will have zero trepidation and be eager to enroll in my programs in the future because they know how serious I am about helping people unlock the next phases and the next layers of their yoga practice. 

Of course, whether or not you continue your work with the press is entirely up to you!

All of THAT is why I can price this so low today. 

But a sincere word of warning: This pricing is a complete experiment, hence the ticking timer. I have no idea if I’m going to regret the price drop, and I may well pull the no-brainer pricing right back down. 

If puppy press looks fun to you, and you want to know what it feels like to float, then I really wouldn’t wait. The pricing will only go up from here.n
