Partner Yoga Poses to Strengthen Your Relationship

The couple who does yoga together, stays together! Here’re 5 easy yoga stretches to strengthen relationship intimacy & love. 

Show your partner that yoga is as much for males as it is for females—these five simple and very easy yoga stretch poses can be done by a total beginner.

Standing Back Bend

Begin your partner yoga session with this stretch to warm up the back muscles and open the chest. Hold on to your partner’s forearm for balance, which also enables both of you to bend backwards deeper if needed.

Standing Forward Bend

Do the Standing Forward Bend as the counter stretch. After you have folded forward, hold your partner’s arms for balance and to get a deeper stretch.

Seated Twist

Stretch the core and obliques in this seated twist—turn to the left and reach for your partner’s right knee, and he does the same at the same time. Repeat on the right side. Ensure that your hips remain connected to the floor.

Seated Back Stretch

Partner yoga is great for loosening tight back muscles together. As you bend backwards onto your partner’s back, he bends forward to provide you with support. Repeat by allowing him to bend backwards onto you. Again, keep hips connected to the floor.
