TOGA - Upper body workout

 - 
Duration: 
22 mins

Join Radha - the Founder of TOGA as she takes you through a brilliant work out in the magnificent Nant Ffrancon valley! In this session, Radha will focus on the upper body, stretching toning and sculpting.

Let's take a look at what to expect:

Activations:

Loosen up the joints in the shoulders with shoulder rolls, spinal wave, standing twist, star jumps (just a few - honest!) and squats with side punch.
 

The upper body work out:

If you are already familiar with the Sun Sequence (Surya Namaskara), you'll recognise this sequence - but prepare to be surprised! Radha has added her own unique TOGA spin on it to make sure that you really get the upper body working. The great thing about this easy to follow sequence is that you can repeat it over and over - as many times as you like in one session. 

As you get stronger try repeating it three times and when you're ready add one more repeat extending your work out from just a few minutes... to up to half an hour. Remember always to begin with a short warm up and a relaxation after.
 

Relaxation

Complete your work out with a deep and nurturing guided relaxation.

 

Today's Message:
It's simple! Take time out to 'just be'. As you take slow, deep breaths, remember to be... where? BE HERE NOW... and take this time to feel what it is in life you are GRATEFUL for.

Have a clear goal in mind for today... and the most important muscle to keep toned? It's most definitely your smile!
