Partner Yoga Pose: Double Tree

Doing yoga with a partner (your sister, brother, friend, mother, child, or "partner") is an amazing experience, especially with balancing poses. It can be hard to stay up on your own, but when you do it with a partner, you can both support each other. Awwww....

Tree pose is what most people think of when they think of yoga, and it can be kind of tricky. Doing Double Tree allows you to stay up by holding onto your partner, keeping balanced for a while you can really feel the benefits of the pose.

Double Tree is great for working on your posture, balance (obviously) and it also opens your hips. Want to know how to get into it? Then

  • Stand beside your partner with your hips touching.
  • Whichever leg is on the outside, bend that knee and use your hands to pull your foot up so it's pressing against the opposite leg's inner thigh. Pressing your knee back will help your foot stay put, and it opens your hips even more.
  • Now take your inside arm and wrap it around your partner's lower back.
  • Once you feel secure, you and your partner can bring your outside hands together at the center, pressing your palms together, for what I would call the double prayer position.
  • For a different variation, extend your inner arms straight up and your outer arms out to the side. This variation is a bit more challenging.
  • Hold for as long as you want and then do the other side.
