This 20-minute flow of yoga will help you strengthen your upper body and shape it, and offer your body and mind a sense of peace. Remember to allow your breath to guide you as you step through this flow while transitioning mindfully between each pose. The goal is to hold each pose for 5 to 10 breathe and complete the complete set of 4 to 5 rounds.
