Yoga is perfect for toning arms and building upper body strength.
To go into Crow Pose, squat down, with the arms on either side of the outer left and right arms. Spread your fingers wide, making sure that the elbows are in line with, and supporting the wrists. Squeeze the knees into the outer arms, just above the elbows.
The arms will form "a ledge" for the knees. Come up onto the toes, lift the hips up, lean forward and slowly lift the legs off the ground., finding your balance.
*** NOTE: To begin, try lifting one leg off the ground, then putting it down. Then lift the other leg, off the ground. This will enable you to build upper body and arm strength.

The other day I was asked this great question.... "I’m new to Yoga and I don’t understand how doing Yoga can help you lose weight – can you explain please? I guess I’m used to hearing doing cardio or weights to lose weight but I can’t understand how doing different poses which you don’t really sweat helps you lose weight."
