Top 3 yoga positions to give you beautiful arms
As well as calming your mind, decreasing stress and toning your body, yoga can do wonders for your upper body strength.
Not only does this mean you'll be better equipped to carry, lift and let's face it, show off, you'll have amazingly toned arms.
Working on muscle definition doesn't have to mean heavy weights. According to instructor Maria Rodale, yoga does the exact same trick - in a much more female-friendly way.
These top three yoga positions will have you showing your arms off, despite this cold weather, in no time.
Make sure you have a yoga mat before you practice this move.
Begin on all fours. Place your forearms on the mat, shoulder-width apart.
Push your legs further forward, so that they are fully straight, keeping your hands on the floor.
When your legs are as straight as possible, walk as far towards your hands as you can, keeping your shoulders directly over your elbows.
This position puts almost all the emphasis on the top of your arms - helping to sculpture and define them - particularly great if you want to get rid of any 'bingo arms' you might have.
Despite not being the most elegant sounding name, the plank could give you some incredibly elegant arms.
Just as before, begin on all fours. This time, however, ensure that your palms are flat against the floor.
Step back on your toes and support your body weight with your hands - almost as if you were doing a press up.
Make sure your whole body is in one straight line.
"Firm the upper, outer edges of your arms in to release the base of your neck and extend your chest, and distribute the weight on your knuckles evenly," Ms Rodale advises.
Just as with the plank, start on all fours as if you were about to do a sit up.
This time, however, rest your shoulders to the floor and have your forearms ahead of you.
Forearm plank really puts the pressure on the top of your arms - the exact part you want properly sculpting.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
