Equipment Needed: a yoga mat or soft surface.

What to Do: Ideally, we would like for you to be able to go through each arm toning yoga pose like a circuit, holding each pose for 5 breaths. Then, whenever you feel comfortable, advance to 10 breaths. There is a bonus advanced pose at the end called Crow Pose which you should learn slowly and not rush. It’s okay if you cannot get it right away, as Crow Pose takes time and concentration.
