7 Easy Beginner Yoga Poses for Couples To Practice Together – SheKnows

by Alexandra Bruin
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 or staring blankly at our phones 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, at it’s best, make you feel more connected to your mind and body and the mind and body of your partner. That’s right: Yoga is just what the doctor ordered.

.setTargeting( ‘pos’, ‘mid’ )
.addSize([[300,250]])

});

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, focus on your breathing technique and don’t do anything that hurts. And don’t forget to laugh and have a blast connecting with your partner.

This pose is energetic and gently works the core. It is playful and encourages laughter.
After finishing the poses, come to a neutral position lying next to each other on your backs in Corpse Pose, maybe resting hands together gently. Allow the body to completely relax with your eyes closed. Feel the closeness with your partner and your connection to the present moment. Relax in this pose for three to five minutes before completing your practice.
