Yoga Sculpt Workout!

Sometimes it's not possible to make it to a yoga class at a studio. However, this doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your practice for the day altogether. Practicing at home can be very rewarding and explorative! Get a fun, upbeat playlist and get your yoga on!

Here is what I did in my Yoga Sculpt class last weekend. You can do it with or without light weights (I would suggest 3-5lbs). It's a really fun, sweaty class that gets you energized and ready to face the day!
