Couples Yoga Workshop Series with Nora Benian
Sat Date: Jun 23 2018 - Jul 14 2018 From: 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Rather than practicing next to each other explore 4 Yoga classes practicing together! Enhance the experience by assisting one another, stretching your levels of trust and strengthening communication. This Couples Yoga Workshop Series will benefit you far beyond the physical.

You will stay in the moment and work together toward common goals which are mutually beneficial for both
participants - physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.

Beginners are welcome!

Benefits:
Release tension and reduces stress
Increase energy flow between the two of you
Create unity
Build trust
Laugh together to increase joy

Breathing together, co-operative movements and deep relaxation with your partner causes a phenomenon called entrainment. Entrainment happens when people unite in a similar rhythm. When you merge and sync your practice with your partner, your breath, movement, and body positions find a rhythm. It creates harmony and a stronger bond and may be the most intimate and fulfilling times you’ll spend together.

When you and your partner practice Asanas (yoga poses) together, you must trust each other in every way. You rely on your partner to hold onto you, stay put, or stay balanced. This total reliance on the other creates a sense of trust and reassurance as you realize your partner is there for you.

These small successes in a couple’s practice are
different than in daily life and they create a special bond. A partner pose is giving and taking and you learn that sometimes you can and should relinquish control. All of the lessons learned in a yoga practice can, and often do transfer to life off the mat.

While yoga is a serious practice that requires effort and focus, just figuring out how to get into a pose can lead to a fair amount of laughter. In addition to being fun, couple’s yoga is quite intimate. You have to work together and with the right attitude, this practice strengthens the bond between you.
