Have you ever tried to get your partner out to yoga with you? Or, are you and your partner both avid yogis? In either case, it just might be time to try Contact Partner Yoga at YYoga:

The vision for Partner Yoga comes from the literal translation of the word yoga, which means union in Sanskrit. If yoga is union, then the perfect expression of uniting through yoga is in practicing with a partner. It is an athletic practice that can involve impressive displays of balance, strength and flexibility. Partner Yoga can also be as simple as sitting on the mat with another person, and the relationship similarities will begin there.

Contact Partner Yoga

Both partners can gain awareness of their willingness to trust, and the ability to literally and metaphorically carry someone else’s weight. Therefore it is important to switch roles and take turns in each position. There are enough pose variations to negate any height or weight differences that might otherwise provide an excuse not to experiment.

Chris Brandt and Teresa Campbell will be leading Partner Yoga workshops called “Yoga Date Night” on February 14th and 16th. From 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the South Granville YYoga location you can experience partner yoga along with Thai massage for $40 each before tax.
