Yoga for two people, also called partner yoga, is an asana practice in which two people work together to perform poses that support each other.
A beginner-friendly pose that derives from the individual tree pose. Begin by lifting one foot up against your thigh while staying balanced on your other foot. Next, hold on to your partner with one arm, and once you find symmetry and balance, stay in the pose for a few seconds.
A variation from the individual spinal twist pose. In this pose, you and your partner start by sitting back to back in a cross-legged position. Work the pose with your breath and as you exhale twist clockwise around each other. Use your partner´s knee to leverage a deeper twist. Hold the pose for a few breaths and twist to the other side.
Start by standing back to back with your partner, then reach your arms overhead as you inhale and fold slowly at the hips as you exhale. Grab your partner´s ankles or shoulders. The pose requires a level of elasticity that may be difficult for some people. In such cases, widen your stance to make it easier.
In this pose, one person will do a classic downward-facing dog while the other does an L shape supported stance. It is easier than it looks, but it does require focus and communication. Hold the pose at a comfortable and stable position and then switch positions with your partner.
You have probably tried this individual pose before as a core exercise, and now you get to step up the difficulty by adding balance with your partner. One person does a plank pose while the other person enters from the side to grab the partner´s ankles and gently place their feet at the base person's shoulders.
A more challenging pose that will require balance and core strength. Start by facing your partner and outside of your legs to hold hands. Next, bend your knees up while touching the soles of your partner´s feet. Now, slowly straighten your legs to form the boat pose.
Definitely, a fun pose to explore with your partner. The base partner lays flat on the ground while bending the knees up to place their feet on the partner´s hip bones. The other partner brings their shoulders forward while the base partner slowly straightens their legs.
