In partner yoga, you and your partner can hold the same posture or try different variations. One of the most popular poses is the Double Dancer Pose. Begin by lying face-to-face and holding your partner’s hands. Then, bend forward and place the sole of your feet on your partner’s hips. Then, slowly lean forward until your forehead is in line with their shoulder blades. Hold for up to four or five breaths.

The benefits of partner yoga go beyond the physical contact. Yoga has a lot to do with a person’s heart chakra, and touch is an important part of that.
