If you’ve never tried Yoga with your significant other before, check out our blog about how to practice Yoga with someone special.
Yoga has been an excellent way for couples to stay closer emotionally and physically since ancient times. Couples Yoga is the best way to boost communication, build trust and have fun!
In this article, I will cover yoga poses for two people from beginner level through to advanced. So whether you’ve done Yoga for years or just started, you’ll find a pose that’s right for you!
Before you begin, it is vital to note that you only work as far as you feel comfortable. Everyone has varying levels of flexibility.
Don't force your body into a position that doesn't feel right, as this can lead to injury. If you experience severe pain, stop doing the yoga poses and see a doctor.
So, come, get a mat, get a water bottle and find a partner to start practising and try these poses with your partner to bring the fun back into your relationship!
Let’s get started!
The Beginner | Intermediate | Advanced

The yoga twister is a powerful pose that strengthens the legs and wrists. It also stretches the shoulders, hips, and ankles. This Pose looks elegant, creative, and it feels like a fun yet challenging task.
A triangle pose is another postural pose that stretches the entire body. It is a lot like a modified locust/tabletop pose finished with Cobra, where you can place your arms like an upside-down triangle.

There you have it! We have mentioned 20 different yoga poses, from Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced. Like all other exercises, my advice is to always practice and listen to your body at your own pace.
Yoga should be done at least four times a week. Before starting any workout for the first time, do some light stretching first (10-15 minutes) without weights or machines.
Do not hesitate to ask for our advice if you have any questions about anything you read in this article!
