Default Strength training/yoga question

I hate the repetitiveness of strength training, but I love yoga. I feel like there are a lot of arm/shoulder-intensive positions in yoga, like handstand, elbow-stand, push-up position, or even just downward dog. Can a yoga routine that focuses on arm strength be enough of a strength training workout to get the benefits of using weights without having to actually use them?
