there’s no drama you have to deal with. all you have is you and your partner moving together in a mindful state at every moment of partner yoga. there is no giver or receiver in a partner yoga pose, both partners are fully engaged in their own experience. Both have their own role of support for the other person, which creates a perfect sense of balance in the present moment between you. four Learn To Trust As they say, in learning to trust another person, you deepen your ability to trust yourself. There is a beautiful quality to interdependency that you can experience in partner yoga. Would you take the risk to trust the other person to catch you? Would you trust the other person to see you fall? Would you trust the other person to see your imperfections? Would you trust the other person to see you in a vulnerable state? Ok, maybe we`re digging too deep here, but these are all questions you can ask yourself before doing partner yoga. When you have trust in yourself and your partner you might find yourself empowered to go much deeper with much less effort than it would normally take. As you are experiencing this beautiful state of trust with a partner, you might realise that it is also true in life: we can accomplish much more with much more joy and ease when we trust and support each other. five The Power Of Touch As in any relationship, touch is an important part of partner yoga too. We touch and we are being touched. Touch means something different to everyone. For some it can be intimidating at first, and for some it is empowering. It is nice to find the balance with each other and discover how we`re reacting to another’s touch. Whether you connect through the very tips of your toes or the entire length of your spine, touch will increase your awareness of one another. This increased awareness and open invitation for another person to enter your space can affect you. You might open yourself up to greater depths in your body and your mind. six A different body Experience Partner yoga is a fun experience with your own body and a way to see it a bit differently. You’ll see that when you’re focusing on finding balance with someone else, your sensations of your own body change ever-so-slightly. You will also find that, while upside down, it becomes incredibly hard to know where you are in space. At first, you don’t know your left foot from your right foot, your head from your toes, or your palms from your heels. All of this unknown allows you to explore your body from a brand new perspective. Yoga with two people is such a fun way to play around and bring more awareness of your own body and how it feels to be in that body. seven weight Loss This isn’t necessarily the most popular reason to practice two person yoga poses, but it is usually a pretty welcomed effect. When you are twisting and turning with the body of a partner, you are using muscles that you wouldn’t ordinarily use. Your hamstrings may become the anchor in certain poses and your shoulders may become the base. You will likely lose belly fat, tone your muscles, and increase your metabolism… all while having heaps of fun! Top ten Yoga Poses for Two People Ok, here comes the main attraction: ten fun poses to try with a partner. But before trying any poses with a partner there are two main things you need to make sure of. First, never attempt to push or pull each other without a warm-up. Be sure to do a gentle warm-up sequence before attempting the partner poses. Also, you’ll both need to be clear on how things feel in your body and will need to be able to communicate this to your partner. So make a commitment to communicate as you move through the poses together. When these two are set, go ahead, honour your and your partner’s body, stay safe, and enjoy :) 1.Standing ahead Fold (Uttanasana) Start in mountain pose, back to back, a few inches away from your partner. inhale together raising your arms up to the sky, then on your exhale hinge at the hips and fold forward, lifting your sitting bones upward and resting your chest on your thighs. You can hold hands or elbows with your partner and definitely exchange upside down smiles. Stay here for a few breaths and come out of the pose with the same hinge at the hips, core engaged and a flat back. two seated Twist (Ardha Matsyendrasana) Begin in a cross-legged position seated with your backs resting against each other. on your inhale, reach your arms overhead, and exhale to twist to the right. While twisting you`ll bring your right hand to the inside of your partner’s left knee and your left hand to the outside of your right knee. Your partner will be mirroring you. You can stay in the twist for 5-7 breaths. Don`t forget to twist to both sides. 3.Seated Forward and Backbends (Paschimottanasana) begin in a cross-legged position seated with your backs resting against each other. One of you will fold forward and the other one will lay down comfortably on the back of the one who is folding forward. So take a big inhale, raise your arms up overhead, and on your exhale slowly fold forward, keeping your legs crossed. When you are ready to go deeper into the pose you can let your partner go ahead and lay down on your back. Your partner will stay cross-legged as well and just comfortably lay down on your back, letting her arms drop out to the side, beautifully opening her chest. Stay here for a few breaths then swap – now your partner will be folding forward and you’ll be bending backward. 4.L -Shaped handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) in this pose, you’re both going to create an L-shape with your bodies. I of you will sit down in staff Pose (Dandasana) and the other one will come into a supported tuck handstand. The easiest way to get into this pose is if the one in staff pose helps to lift the leg of the one in a handstand. In both poses keep your core engaged, shoulders are strong but kept away from the ears and the most important part is to smile at each other. To come out of the pose, lower the legs of the one in a handstand, then rest in Child Pose (Balasana) for a few breaths. five Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) Start in a Downward-Facing go_after position, one in front of the other. The one in front of the other will walk her feet and hands back until she is able to step her feet up to the back of the partner’s hips and coming to a stable and comfortable position. You can hold the pose for five to seven breaths. To come out, the one in down dog should wait for the partner to walk forward with her hands and gently step off her back. Take child’s pose for a few breaths before swapping. six boat pose (Paripurna Navasana) sit facing each other with your knees bent and toes touching. Reach for your partner’s wrists. While holding each other, walk the soles of your feet together, drawing your knees towards the chest. Keeping the spine straight and chest open, begin to straighten the legs. When your legs are straight, hold for five to seven breaths, then come out the way you went in the pose. This is definitely a challenging pose and requires a lot of openness in the hip flexors and hamstrings so don’t worry if you can’t extend your legs, just play around, listen to your body, and enjoy the process.
