Connect with couple's yoga
"Couple's yoga is a great way to celebrate each other and strengthen your relationship," explains Andrea Metcalf, fitness expert. Research shows that pheromones are heightened during exercise -- certainly another great reason to salute the sun together. Metcalf recommends three poses that help increase strength and flexibility of the major muscle groups that helps improve your love life.
Pose 1: Child's pose with chest opener
This pose opens the chest for Partner 2 and draws energy and circulation to the pelvic region of Partner 1.
Pose 2: Straddle opener
This poses increase energy and flow to the pelvic region.
Pose 3: Partner heel stretches
This pose draws blood-flow down to the hips and pelvic floor as well as opens the hamstrings for better flexibility.
