7 Practical Beginner Yoga Poses for Couples

Advertisement

Relationship ruts are so easy to fall into. Even when you’re crazy about your partner, we all find ourselves doing the same thing every night: Eating dinner and then retiring to the couch for exactly 1.75 hours of Netflix before hitting the hay. Sure, it’s comforting, but it can also get monotonous. Adding a little somethin’-somethin’ to your routine can reignite that spark, and yoga is just what the doctor ordered.

These yoga poses for partners can be a little challenging, but are also great for beginners — you don’t need to be a yoga expert to get through this practice. Just remember to always listen to your body, and don’t do anything that hurts. And don’t forget to laugh and have a blast connecting with your partner.

1 – Partner breathing

  • Start in a seated position with legs crossed at the ankles or shins, with your backs resting against each other.
  • Rest hands on thighs or knees, and allow yourself to feel and connect with your partner.
  • Begin to notice how the breath feels as you inhale and exhale; especially notice how the back of the rib cage feels against your partner’s.
  • Begin to “breath alternate” with your partner, so as you inhale, he or she exhales; as he or she inhales, you exhale. Practice for three to five minutes.

This is a gentle way to connect with your partner, helps open the heart and is an easy way to connect with your breath.
