Partner Yoga

17 Feb
This blog post was inspired by a partner yoga class on February 14, Valentine’s Day, at the Lansing Community Center in Lansing, New York.  Brenda D’Angelo is the teacher of this Kripalu Yoga Class.
Partner Yoga
Put your mats side by side; sit back to back.
Interlock your arms, feel the other’s breath.
Now stretch, now lean–first backwards, then forwards.
Come together, come together.
Ask your partner, “Can we move now?”
“Am I hurting you?” “How does it feel?
Always move in sync, always speak your mind.
Come together, come together.
Try a partner twist, then stand up, form two trees.
Now a buddy boat pose, foot to foot,
Do a partner forward-fold, clasp the arms, feet in a V.
Come together, come together.
