Since wedding planning can be really hectic, why not relieve some stress by trying something new with your fiancé? When yoga poses are done with another, especially someone you care about, they can relax your mind, open your heart and deepen your connection. Yoga is great on your own, but when you practice Partner Yoga, you can achieve what you never could alone.
Interested? Check out the yoga studios in your area to see if they offer special Partner Yoga classes or workshops. It's a great way to learn partner poses from an actual instructor so you can ask questions and get help with alignment. Plus, with the two of you in the class, when you're at home practicing together, you can help each other remember how to do the poses (two memories are better than one!).

I highly recommend this amazing book called Partner Yoga: Making Contact for Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Growth. You can get it through Buy.com for only $16.18.
It explains the spiritual aspect of Partner Yoga brilliantly, plus the illustrations are incredibly helpful so you can figure out exactly what you're supposed to be doing.
It explains why touch is so important to our well-being and happiness. Partner Yoga can provide a playground for contact that is intimate, but not sexual. It can nourish that need for loving and affectionate touch that so many of us are living without.
