How Yoga and Massage can be a Pathway to Intimacy and Romance
Yoga for couples is a fun adventure into intimacy, play and relaxation. The poses are simply a doorway for you both to step deeper into your connection. When you stretch with you partner, your bodies melt each others tension and tightness. Whether your relationship is new or old, partner yoga will reinvigorate your life and renew your connection.
Partner Yoga is a great way to learn surrender, build trust, and deepen intimacy. Partner Yoga can be practiced by anyone – no previous yoga experience is necessary. Some poses challenge your balance, strength and flexibility, others require your total trust and surrender. Each exercise and breathing technique uses the power of the partner dynamic to achieve more than one person could alone. From creative exercise to profound spiritual work, Partner Yoga delivers a diverse range of benefits to a wide array of people. This well rounded practice requires no special equipment and can be done in any open space (the living room, gym, or park).
For couples who want to explore safe, playful ways of being tender and loving together. You will take turns placing each other in restorative poses and then massaging your partners hands, feet, neck and face while they simply get to relax and melt. In poses and exercises, partners rely on each others support to keep correct body alignment, balance, and concentration. In a deeper sense, this physical support fosters deeper feelings of nurture and acceptance. Couples are reminded to respect their own and their partners limitations of stretching and physical fitness and not push beyond them to the point of discomfort.
When you feel safe and supported you develop the courage to trust others and the strength to confront your fears and embrace your true self. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Beginners and the inflexible are especially welcome. Partner Yoga uses various movements and poses to focus the mind and increase strength, stamina and flexibility which are done in the spirit of nurturing and play. Since yoga is usually such an internally-focused practice, being focused on your significant other is a way to enrich not only your own spirit but your loved ones as well.
Partners are encouraged to respect their own flexibility, fitness and comfort levels and to do the practice without any self-judgement. We will learn how to touch and be touched in a loving and supporting way.
Touch is seen as a basic human need that, in our modern busy lifestyle, is generally not satisfied. Partner Yoga offers a system that treats touch and intimacy as integral parts of our mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
In these poses and exercises, partners rely on each others support to keep body alignment, balance, and focus. In a deeper sense, this physical support fosters deeper feelings of nurture and acceptance. When you feel safe and supported you develop the courage to trust others and the strength to confront your fears and embrace your true self.
Yoga offers much more than just a way to exercise the body: Yoga helps us cultivate an inner state of body-centered consciousness that allows us to walk calmly amongst the chaos. Yoga teaches us both to let go and to have exquisite awareness in every moment. Even if yoga only enhanced our physical fitness, the time spent in practice would be fully justified and a great start towards a lifestyle of vitality.
