Couples yoga

Off-beat Valentine’s Day Plan – Couple’s Yoga Class

Valentine’s Day is the day we celebrate love. No matter how sceptical we might be about the sanctity of this day, and how “silly and annoying and commercialized” the whole affair (pun intended) is, a little bit of us wants to partake in it all.

You want to pamper and get pampered. You want to feel special. You want to do something different than “the usual”. So why not try this – Sign up with your partner for a couples’ yoga class! Before you start shaking your head in horror (“Of all the things I might want to do on 14th Feb…”), here are five reasons for this being a great idea – 

1. You wanted something “different”? You got it!
If you don’t want to do something typically romantic and cheesy on Valentine’s Day, a yoga class will be ideal. It allows you to keep up the nonchalant facade of not giving into the V-Day mania, while actually doing something special. Think about it – you will get to spend quality time with your partner but without making a production out of it. It will be a new experience too – joining the one you love in the quest for mental peace and physical fitness.

2. Could gifting be any healthier?!
Some people struggle to find the perfect gift for their special someone. One of your gifts could be a couples’ yoga session, which will bring you both closer to your inner selves and personal fitness goals. Instead of wasting time, energy and money on finding a gift that’s suitably grandiose, give your partner the gift of good health and happiness. If you feel that’s not enough, throw in some other goodies too. But with a yoga session, you’ll show your partner that you care for their wellbeing as well!

3. The couple that does yoga together, stays together. #relationshipgoals
Many yogic scholars maintain that partner yoga helps build bridges of silent communication between two individuals. This happens because in performing asanas together, you’re relying on each other for the very creation of poses. You’re trusting, assisting, supporting each other. This allows your differences to be set aside momentarily and for intimacy to grow. You’ll have to feel it to believe it – couples’ yoga can be therapeutic to a relationship. So explore your relationship further this Valentine’s Day.

4. Because tomorrow never comes.
A lot of us set fitness goals for ourselves but are never able to see them through. We get lazy and keep putting off that trip to the gym or that run in the park. So this year on 14th Feb, you could kickstart your fitness journey into action with a couples’ yoga session. It’ll be less taxing on your body than a first-day-gym session. Also, by involving your partner, you have someone to support and monitor your commitment. And this way, you can end the cycle of procrastination and finally work towards a healthier body and mind.

5. Yoga is stimulating in more ways than one. *hint hint*
Research has shown that alongside the many, many benefits of yoga, it can also help increase libido. Yoga stimulates the body, increases flexibility and balance, reduces stress levels and when performed with a partner, strengthens your bond; all this could really help one’s sex life. So, spice up your love life some more by doing some couples’ yoga on Valentine’s Day. And who knows? Maybe you’ll get addicted to the benefits and become a yogi for life!

Still not convinced? Just give it a shot and see for yourself; if nothing else, you’ll get a funny Valentine’s Day story out of it!
