Best Yoga Poses For Two People

Do you and your partner not have a set date night routine yet? Bath, wine, and Netflix just isn’t cutting it? Are you tired of breaking out the board games?

We’ve got you covered. Try these poses with your significant other to bring the fun back into your relationship!

Yoga is a great way to stay healthy and relax at the same time. Plus, it's always fun to do it together with someone who cares about you. 

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!

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.
