A study conducted by Wired on dating websites like OkCupid and Match.com highlights that “meditation”, “yoga”,” awareness”, “workout”, and “fitness” were common hobbies of popular profiles. People now prefer healthy lifestyles and seek for their significant other inside the yoga and gym classes.

Yoga dating has changed the definition of fun and enjoyment. Yoga poses, asanas, requiring assistance from others might ignite a spark between you and your significant other. The gentle touch and/or eye contact help the non-verbal communication, create spontaneity, and build trust. Where before adults preferred deep conversations to understand someone better, yoga might just have become a method of creating spontaneous connections and paved its way to form something more meaningful and beautiful.
Become a Part of The New Trend
Yoga Speed Dating classes have become the new trend in the world of fitness and lifestyle. They also encourage practicing yoga with different partners throughout the yoga session. This innovation has successfully helped participants form meaningful connections even if that means just friendship.
