Benefits of Partner Yoga

Partner yoga is a great way to get creative and enjoy practicing yoga postures. It allows you to connect both physically and emotionally with your partner. You can practice together with your spouse, friend, fitness buddy, parent, child or anyone else. You can do the same pose at the same time, intertwine a pose to create a new one pose, or support each other in a specific posture. The main focus is to gain sensitivity and build trust to your partner's needs.

Partner Yoga helps to deepen and increase the stretch and impact of a yoga posture, without any pain. One partner's body weight can be used to increase the pressure of the other partner. Working together with another presence while supporting each other can help build trust and communication.

Your partner serves you like a mirror, to help you with proper alignment, balance and concentration. At the same time there is a level of playfulness, fun and laughter.

Practicing with your life partner can be very intimate as it can bring you closer, deepen a connection and revive a love that was lost. Your partner will enjoy the closeness and getting all sweaty with you. Another benefit is that your body will produce endorphins to uplift your mood. This can put a smile on your face and encourage the feeling of happiness in your life.

The shared touch in yoga can do wonders for your soul. The gentle touch, breathing and focused attention to each other while engaging in postures together can revitalize your spirit. The possibilities are endless. You can try a few postures with a blind fold, as you totally rely on your partner for support. You can get creative and delight your sensations in many ways.
