Get Physical: Airplane Pose

Partner Yoga is not just for "lovers." It's a way for any two people who care about each other to connect in a fun way, while increasing their levels of communication, intimacy and trust. You can start off really simple and move onto more difficult poses together.

Airplane
I'm sure you've seen moms doing this with their babies. It's just as easy with grown-ups.

  • Partner #1 lies on their back on a cushy mat or rug, with their feet straight up, knees slightly bent.
  • Partner #2 faces their partner and places Partner #1's feet so they're right below their hip bones, toes pointing out.
  • Both partners hold hands and Partner #2 slowly leans forward as Partner #1 pulls Partner #2 up into flight. Very Important: Partner #2 - keep your feet below your hips.
  • Stay like this, or Partner #2 can try doing some fancy things. Just make sure both partners are communicating before moving.

Yeah, I love it too. The person on the bottom gets an amazing release for their lower back. And if you're on top (he he), well, nothing compares to the feeling of flying.
