|Partner Yoga: Soul to Soul, Heart to Heart|
According to legend, Once Upon a Time there was a way for two lovers to express their feelings for one another deeply, directly and without verbal language – soul-to-soul. Unfortunately, over the eons we have lost this knowledge. In our hearts, we still have the openness, the will and ability.
Lovers are any two who care for one another in a way that is more than casual. This Valentine Day couples practice is for lovers who may be parent and child, sisters and brothers, soul-sisters and soul-brothers, girlfriends and boyfriends, best friends, buddies and mates. In a loving relationship, we learn to communicate, and therefore to trust that we are heard and understood. We come to trust ourselves to offer what the other wants and needs. And we trust ourselves enough to let go, to open and to receive.
Like the ancient YIN/YANG symbol, a perfect balance always holds tension in homeostasis, and each side has a bit of the opposite energy at its center. So, we will end our partner practice with Boka Maru. Boka Maru is love-fun for two – intimate but not intimidating, sensual but not sexual. Boka-Maru is not Yoga, but it is Yogic.
This Valentine’s Day, do something different and really memorable. Treat someone you love to an afternoon of love-connection, communion and trust for 2 in a beautiful give-and-take play. You will be awed, delighted and inspired.
This, of course, will seep out into your life. And there will be chocolate!
