Great memories come from amazing experiences – especially the ones that involve physical engagement. Yoga has the power to bring people closer and synchronise flow to create fabulous moments that are worth remembering for life. Partners move from one position to another forming asanas without speaking to each other, this physical activity is powerful in connecting two souls.
It is natural to anticipate liking and dislike things about your partner on the first date, but a fun yoga class increases your chances of securing a second date, especially when you have thoroughly enjoyed the previous experience! Starting with couples’ yoga can help you create amazing moments that will want to be relived again and again.
Share a mindful experience, share a silent laughter. All is possible at a fun yoga class!
When engaging in couples’ yoga, partners rely on each other for balance and share a common goal of forming the final pose. When partners engage in non-verbal communication for the creation of a beautiful asana, they strengthen the core of their relationship that is namely, trust. Yoga can help you and your significant other enhance your communication and level of understanding.
Understanding the limits of your partner’s strengths and getting a hold of your own vulnerabilities can deepen your connection. Yoga can also synchronise thought processes and get rid of communication barriers.

“There is nothing better than going to a yoga class together, followed by a coffee and a healthy dinner” – Bumble Date User
Dating is often associated with “grabbing drinks”, “watching a movie” (Netflix & Chill, so to say), or just spending quality time together.
When wanting to let loose and overcome our inhibitions, most of us would choose to meet at a bar and drink away. As much as that is a possible way to develop a connection with someone, the dynamic of such dates can get monotonous.
While planning to do something for the upcoming dates, it is highly recommended, even by dating professionals, to experiment and explore. A healthy way to test the dynamics of your relationship is by joining a mindful yoga session with your partner.
Break the cliche of “fun” and fill your week with work, wildness, and workouts!
