You don’t have to spend hours at the gym pumping iron to get those lean, sculpted arms we all dream about. Many people are surprised to learn that yoga can be an excellent exercise to tone the arms and shoulders. Certain yoga poses require you to hold the burden of your own body weight, leaving you with some serious guns.
YouBeauty teamed up with Sarah Levey, co-founder of y7 Studio in NYC, to create a yoga workout that will give you a gorgeous, shapely upper body as quickly as possible. Soon, you’ll be wearing those strapless dresses and tank tops with tons of confidence!
Note: Stay in each pose for 5 – 10 breaths.
