Yoga is a great way to encourage healthy living, and it can be even more enjoyable when you get to practice along with a loved one. Whether it’s with your current partner, best friend, buddy or family member, doing yoga together is a great way to bond and have a ton of fun. There’s no better way to enjoy yoga poses than with a partner. What’s even better is that partner yoga poses are generally easier than those that you do on your own. Here’s a look at the 20 best yoga poses for two people.
In the standing position, one partner stands back-to-back with the other and then each partner bends backward until the forearms come together in the middle. The partner standing in the back will assist the other by helping support them. This pose is great for stretching out the shoulders, spine, and legs.
Start off in a standing position and then one partner will cross their ankles and the other partner will hold their ankles. The partner crossing their ankles will then perform a forward bend while the partner holding the ankles will provide resistance and help to keep the partner stable while they are bending forward. This pose is great for stretching out the hamstrings, spine, and shoulders.
Stand straight and then press your palms together in a prayer position. The partner standing in the back will provide support for the one in front by placing their hands on the lower back. This pose is great for stretching the shoulders and strengthening the core.
Tree of Balance
The partners stand across from each other and then the partner standing in the back will press their right foot against the partner standing in front’s right foot. The partner in front will then lift their left foot up and rest it on the partner standing in the back’s calf while they perform a balancing tree pose. This pose is great for improving balance, focus, and total body strength.
The partners stand across from each other with their backs pressed together. One partner will then perform a triangle pose while the other partner will provide support by placing their hands on their partner’s hips. This pose is great for stretching and strengthening the legs, as well as helping with improving balance.
