Chocolates and gifts are super awesome but do they have the capability to strengthen the bond between couples as much as the yoga mat does? Ever wondered practicing yoga together can work magic giving a boost to your relationship? There are a lot of benefits of practicing yoga with your partner but some of the proven are encouragement of trusts, improvement in the level of communication and uniting your mind, body, and soul. To start with, go for ‘Sukhasana’, where you sit in front of your partner. Begin inhaling and exhaling together and feel each other’s breathe. It works magic.
On the occasion of International Yoga Day 2019, we bring to you 5 yoga asanas to try with your partner to strengthen your bonds.
