Cou­ples Yoga

Montreal Times - - NEWS -

Cou­ples yoga is for any two peo­ple who iden­tify them­selves as a cou­ple and would like to work to­gether to strengthen this bond. Work­ing with a part­ner re­quires trust, pa­tience, and tol­er­ance. If that part­ner is also one’s sex­ual part­ner the work it­self in­vites a new ap­proach to prob­lem solv­ing: to com­mu­ni­ca­tion, con­nec­tion and co­op­er­a­tion.

Cou­ples yoga by def­i­ni­tion de­mands co­op­er­a­tion.When we do bal­ance pos­tures, for ex­am­ple, they are pos­si­ble but they can hap­pen only when both con­trib­ute.This co­op­er­a­tion gets past com­pe­ti­tion: each brings es­sen­tial com­po­nents for bal­ance.

The prac­tice of Cou­ples Yoga builds and strength­ens part­ner­ship. Some­thing some­times best done with­out words: through steady eye con­tact, breath aware­ness, move­ment and in­tel­li­gent touch.

From this, self-con­fi­dence; and a solid foun­da­tion for mu­tual sup­port and trust.

A cou­ples prac­tice means undis­tracted time to­gether, to re­con­nect. A healthy work­out, stress re­lief, qui­eter mind. The prac­tice is for all, with scaleable pos­tures. Have fun to­gether!
