Partner Yoga

Dealing with just yourself is one thing, but when you add another person into the mix, yoga becomes a whole different ball game altogether; their sweat, limbs and ideas on the things that should work makes it a bit more complex, yet very interesting.

But think about how amazing it is to connect with your partner on such a spiritual level; With uniformed breathing techniques, to move together, to communicate – especially in a world that has been taken over by technology. What a wonderful way this is to unplug from the daily norm to reconnect with each other.

Partner yoga is a blend of different types of yoga, thai massage and aerobics which helps build stronger communication and intimacy in a relationship. Posture and the flow of strategic movement are the key factors when performing a routine.

Here are a few great tips to keep in mind:

  • Be open minded. Do not be afraid to try new things.
  • If you do not feel comfortable, tell your partner.
  • Be steady. Be aware of the great impact that you are to your partner.
  • Breathe!
  • Enjoy the moment. Be present and focused on each other and try not to take anything too seriously.

Celebrating Her

Women all around the world are celebrated each year on March 8th.  Various countries dedicate 24 hours to spotlight the successes of our mothers, daughters, wives and sisters. But why wait until March 8th? We can celebrate the women in our lives every day!

Here are a few celebratory ideas for her.

  • Say “Thank you”. Although they are two very simple words. But the meaning of appreciation and gratitude goes oh so far!
  • Support her goals and dreams. Offering your support of her personal goals is important. It shows that you really care, and you will be there to encourage and cheer her on as she goes for that position.
  • Offer a day of pampering. A spa day can be quite relaxing, but it does not have to be a massage or pedicure. Just give her a day of pure fun doing the things she enjoys.
  • Throw her a party – an actual day/night of celebration! Throw the woman in your life a party, not because it’s her birthday, but just because she deserves it.
  • Show her love. Love is the ultimate celebration. From husband to wife, or child to mother. Love is a beautiful thing to witness, experience and have.

Celebrating Him

You know that feeling you get when you get dressed in something decidedly feminine and you can feel your husband’s eyes on you? When he responds to your femininity by treating you like the most special woman in the world? It definitely gets the butterflies going! Your husband gets the same charge out of having you recognize and appreciate his masculinity, notice the little things and tell him about it.

Here are a few fun ways to celebrate the Love of your Life!

  • Show him love. Love is the ultimate celebration. From wife to husband, love is a beautiful thing to witness, experience and have.
  • Tuck a love note in his pants pocket (or anywhere you know he’ll find it).  Write a short note letting him know how much you appreciate him.
  • Surprise him with lunch at his job. Sync up your lunch time with your hubby’s and make him (or pick up) his favorite lunch and take it to his office.
  • Lather him up and help him shave. By careful with that razor!  But this can be loads of fun.  And if he likes a close shave, even better.  As you reach in close to make sure not to nick him, all he’ll be able to do is stare into your eyes, look at your nose, lust after you lips.  Good luck getting him to let you leave the bathroom after you’ve finished!
  • Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.Throw a dinner party and invite his favorite people to come celebrate him with you – for no particular reason.  It could be your in-laws, his closest friends, colleagues or whoever he’d enjoy having dinner with and who love him enough to celebrate him (even when it’s not his birthday).
