Find unity in yoga

Share a prenatal yoga class as a couple

The meaning of yoga is union. One way we can find unity in our lives is by meeting together to share a practice together. This can be done once or as a frequently shared practice. Couples yoga naturally teach us how to gently crossing barriers and boundaries through an exciting trial and error process. It’s fun, creative, and adventurous.

Partner yoga dissolves false separation couples feel between to help guide them into unity. It teaches us to be sensitive and compromise, in order to allow the playful childlike sense of wonder and humor to come out. We begin to learn to let go and trust the process.

Communication

Asking each other if they’re ready

Partner yoga requires us to hone our communication skills. We clearly communicate with each other about not only what we’re doing but also how we’re feeling. We play with balance by pushing and pulling each other’s weight while breathing together. The more we communicate with love, compassion, and truth, the more our yoga practice and relationships grow and evolve.

Partner yoga enhances the awareness with which we see, understand, and relate to each other, while still being true to ourselves.

Power of touch

Support and centering from each other

Human touch has proven healing powers. In yoga, we do this by lending a sturdy ground to balance on. Or, by helping each other relax. As we reach out for our partner, we find support and centering. Feeling touch helps us let down barriers and dissolve boundaries.

Ultimately, partner yoga is about laughing, playing, and having fun together. It brings happiness and joy into our yoga practice, which makes us want to continue to grow as yogis.
