If you want to do some biceps weight lifting to complement your yoga, start by purchasing a small hand weight (two to five pounds). Leave it by your phone and do a few lifts as you chat. Start with your arm down at your side; keeping the upper arm in the same position, bend your elbow to bring your hand up to your shoulder. Start with 10 repetitions, and gradually build to three or four sets of 10. After a while, you'll want to try a heavier weight.
