Practicing Yoga by oneself can be easy. We choose the pace, slow or fast, hard or easy, we can just choose by ourselves. But practicing with a partner can be more challenging. Choose some familiar poses and notice the differences when doing the pose on our own and with a partner. Also notice the differences when practicing with other partners. What feelings arise? Partner Yoga can help us expand the perspective and also help understand our partner more deeply. We do not have to be quiet while practicing Partner Yoga as it is a time to share our feelings and love.
Partner Yoga is a fun way to practice Yoga. Normally, we practice with someone that has a relationship with us; our child, a friend or intimate partner. The most important part of practicing with a partner is to find balance, not to look at the partner’s weakness. Instead, we look for harmony between two living beings, regardless of the body height, weight or shape. Simply share and enjoy the moment together with respect and love. Be playful and we will find peace and happiness unfold for us. By communication and trust we give support to each other. We can encourage with humour, but never criticize with pride.
