Relaxation. Calmness. Serenity. Yes, yoga delivers on all of these things, but the fact that yoga can also offer your muscles a kickass strength workout should not be overlooked. Yoga is such an effective strength-training workout, because it utilizes lifting and holding your own body weight. Not only will these eight poses sculpt a strong, sexy upper body, but they will also help strengthen the rest of your body too. Aside from buffing you up, these arm-targeting yoga poses will also make it easier to tackle inversions like Headstand, the oh-so-fun Forearm Stand, and the playful Handstand (and yes, even Scorpion!).
