This month’s yoga post serves to reveal a series of yogi-approved moves that will create toned muscles, flexible limbs and a calm, organised mind. Yoga is without a doubt the healthiest form of body sculpting you could hope to achieve. It’s 100% natural, medically approved, holistically suggested and just down right convenient. No need to drive to a yoga studio, pay for classes, put workout clothes on or even brush your hair. Just get up, get your mat out and dedicate 10 minutes each day for a healthier, happier and more sculpted version of yourself.
Body Sculpting ritual Nº1
Monday morning sculpting with Megan
Monday mornings are usually the stiffest in my experience, and often the day of the week that offers the least amount of time to get everything done. The solution is this wonderfully chilled 10-minute routine created by Megan from MegsYoga. This total body sculpting session will hit all the right points getting you truly revved up and ready to take on the day.
Megan writes: “You can do the sequence for a fast full-body workout or do the sequence twice for a serious body sculpting and toning session.”

Wednesday fatigue-fighting with Amy Davis
Mid-week means stepping the stamina level up a notch. This routine uses a combination of pilates and yoga and is more challenging than it looks. We recommend decreasing the amount of reps depending on your fitness-level. The cool thing about all these routines is you can tailor them to your specific needs and still get the same benefits! Fight fatigue, improve fitness and thoroughly tone muscles all in one with this easy-to-follow routine lead by Selena Gomez’s very own personal trainer. What more could you want?
Body Sculpting ritual Nº4
Thursday core strengthening with Kino
Keeping your core strong is so important for the rest of the muscle groups, taking strain away from the back and preventing injury. For a balanced workout, the core should be targeted each and every time. Kino believes that yoga is a vehicle for each student to experience the limitless potential of the human spirit. You don’t have to be strong or flexible to begin the yoga practice, all you need is an open heart and the inspiration to practice yoga. Unroll your mat and do the practice!
Body Sculpting ritual Nº5
Friday hip flexor stretches with Jen Hilman
“A necessary routine for those of you who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk or driving in your car, where those hip flexors are constantly being shortened and contracted.” Says Jen. This is a great routine for end of week just before the fun of a weekend hits. If you’ve spent hours throughout the week in a sedentary position, you’ll feel free as a bird after this calming, elongating ritual.
