Get Physical: Partner Yoga for the Bride and Groom

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!).

Can't find a class? Then

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.

My husband also really likes doing yoga, we should try the couples yoga too. I bet your fiance would love it once he tried it!

That doesn't sound gross at all lorioz... it sounds great! I would be super impressed with my parents if they did that. It's definitely true that it is easier to stay healthy when you have someone else to help motivate you. I can't imagine my fiance ever being willing to try partner yoga, but he does give me a hard time (with name calling and a poke in the belly) on days when I am tired and don't want to elliptical, which usually gets me motivated enough to go.

This might sound gross... but my mom and dad go to partner yoga classes and retreats sometimes. (my mom is a yoga instructor). Their theory is that they need to help each other stay healthy so that they can continue to have a happy life together.
